Had an interesting trail in Khorfakkan and in the vicinity of Hajar mountains. Planning to craft a video soon on this endevaour.
..“We are now in the mountains and they are in us, kindling enthusiasm, making every nerve quiver, filling every pore and cell of us.”
― John Muir
My First Summer in the Sierra
“Did I live? The human world is like a vast musical instrument on which we play our individual parts while simultaneously listening to the compositions of others in an effort to contribute to the whole. We don't choose whether to engage, only how to; we either harmonize or create dissonance. Our words, our deeds, our very presence create and leave impressions in the minds of others just as a writer makes impressions with their words. Who you are is an unfolding narrative. You came from nothing and will return there eventually. Instead of taking ourselves so seriously all the time, we can discover the playful irony of a story that has never been told in quite this way before.― Stephen Batchelor
This piece of illustrative art is inpired from a recent beach trail. Thoughts have always been perceived as an imprint. More so, thoughts transformed into a plan of action would have heavier footprints and would leave trails of fruits of labor.
..“The mist after rain, uninterrupted rainfall on rooftops, pitter-patter intellect. The thoughts I leave behind like footsteps.”
There are days when Almighty helps to consummate those little trivial novel longings we nurture in the back of our hearts. Yesterday was such a day. I’ve had a little wish to have paintings from an original artist rather than getting something online that’s printed in thousands and does not have the distinctiveness and grace of a painting prepared exclusively by a real artist. That has a personality of its own in comparison with a computerized print head churning out several paintings and drawings in a batch out of a printing facility. Not only that, the rawness of the color palettes used and the depth is truly profound if we have an eye to appreciate it. I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to have some original fine art from Karolina Nowak Konieczna, an art historian and painter, originally from Poland. Me and Netta met her yesterday and collected a few paintings that we really liked. She was really kind and showed us a lot of her other artworks as well which were truly remarkable. Reading from this exhibition page, Karolina Nowak-Konieczna is an Art historian and painter, held exhibitions in Poland and Germany, currently, her works are shown in several galleries. The works depict stories of contemplative character, dream-like states, full of metaphors, emotion, not easy to decipher. The painted images are created through a meticulous process and the finer details are comprised of small dots. Karolina’s paintings are made for those who are searching for something more in art than only a faithful depiction of reality.
