MEMORY OF ST PETERSBURG

posted by federico cortese

When, in my holidays, I go to visit a seaside town or a river town, it often happens that I am involved into the classic tourist trip on the boat, or vessel. Such an experience, by definition, is a little superficial: the distance from the coast, the movement, the limited time, all these elements combined together make the perception confused. But at the same time, perhaps for the fact that the focus can not dwell deeply on anything specific, the end of this experience gives a reminder of the whole, that could reveal the spirit of that place. It 's true, the details are confused, the facades of the buildings overlap, we are no longer sure if the front of that palace was on the Grand Canal or the Giudecca, but probably at the end of the journey, that will remain our most intense memory of Venice.

posted by Lynne Forrester

Tumbling curls cascade over the bay, whipped into a frenzy of frizz by the northerly gales. Their white tips mirror the surf of huge waves below as they roll towards shore. 'Tumbling Curls' - oil on canvas board, 20x20cm http://www.lynneforrester.com/store/p314/Tumbling_Curls.html

Falling and tumbling, over and over - swirling horizontally in the fierce wind. Heavy sepias and greys mesh with stark blues to create magical hues as the whole sky becomes a kaleidoscope of ever-eclipsing patterns.

ART BY LYNNE FORRESTER: BLOG - 30 PAINTINGS IN 30 DAYS, DAY SIX - SOFT DEFINITION

posted by Lynne Forrester

Gentle breezy undulations gather a thick duvet of slightly moving mass above the bay. Clouds add to the cluster and the duvet forms itself a textured cover - dense layers colliding as they're seamlessly added to the mix. Waves stagger and alter their rhythm below with the changing tide. The wind checks its momentum too and it's enough for the duvet to rearrange her layers. She gets organised and the dark shades are now highlighted by the contrasting others and each becomes softly defined - true collaboration working in nature.
