Divertimento #24: Nature

Rainforest, jungle and awesome exotic animals were inspiration to my Divertimento called Nature.

24R     green frog rain forest

This blue frog with black spots is very tiny, just about 2 inches. It looks so lovely – like some fairy tale creature, but this blue frog is poisonous.

This one is called Blue morpho – these species live in the tropical forests of Latin America. Their shinning metallic color is absolutely stunning.

Apollonia was an ancient city founded in 588 BC by Greeks in Illyria, in modern-day Albania. Charming quiet serene place, where you can touch the history.

Divertimento #11: Double

I always love trips to France. Every time we travel there we discover new treasures. Typical colors of French countryside were inspiration for this painting.

11_Divertimento_FRAMED_R    provence1

You can see the traditional blue-and- yellow colors everywhere in Provençal; on the fabric, on the dishes, on the cosmetics, on the houses, on the clothing even on the pastries. The colors are everywhere – golden sunflower hue and cerulean blue hues. Wonderful combination!

Divertimento #10: Bike

This is one of the funny Divertimentos inspired by my resent trip to one of the most charming cities in the world – Jerusalem.

10_Divertimento_FRAMED_R     jerusalem2 (403)

There are 30 fixed bikes attached to various instruments and mechanisms on the Safra square in front of the Jerusalem City Hall.  The bikes are part of the interactive art installation “Full Gas in Neutral” designed and constructed by Anat and Ilan Berman. Each bike “does” something different; when you start pedaling the bike you set the mechanism in motion. Some There are drums attached, which pound when the rider cycles; others play music from a gramophone; some have a desk lamp which lights up and sways gently from side to side; still others have speedometers and fans. It is a great fun!

Divertimento #9: Marine Life

I think that Australia is my most favorite trip. This place is like a Paradise. Definitely must see destination! Australia’s landscapes are incredibly diverse. They include a wide variety of habitats for its wildlife, including tropical rainforests, deserts, rivers, mountain ranges and of course marine environments which has been inspiration for this painting.

The Great Barrier Reef is the breathtaking beauty. It is the largest coral reef ecosystem on earth – stretches for more than 1200 miles along the Queensland coastline. Luckily for me it is also one of the world’s most accessible reefs. Since I wouldn’t scuba dive I enjoyed an excellent snorkeling. The pic is a courtesy of Tom Hall and his experience of “Great Barrier Reef Dive & Snorkel – Port Douglas Australia”
