Visions from the past by agios Visions from the past by agios
I open my eyes and see a neighborhood so different from anything Ive ever experienced...

I see old buildings, I sense their distinguished,subtle aroma fading away in the refreshing air, tender flowers and blossoms leaning down from tiny, slender balconies in an effort to touch me. A river whispering to me stories while dancing softly through the narrow
canal, dancing careless through time. A sky creating luxuriant colorful paintings...a world that embraces me...a world offering to become part of me...

"And as I wake up from my childish dreams I violently confront my current reality. I find myself once more surrounded by enormous, terrifying buildings that steal away from me the sun. Weak, sorrowful trees desperately struggling to survive in the suffocative polluted atmosphere, buried amongst monstrous cars and an inhuman crowd...

I came to realize that all this beauty was merely a brief dream of another neighborhood, another reality, another vision from the past... "

My first artwork made completely in Painter, trying out some brushes, adding some textures to the walls for making old, etc...hope you like it

madalie Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2007
So beautiful! An intriguing theme of the picture brought my attention at first. Then I noticed excellent work on the perspective and soft contour lines. It seems a kind of picture which draws you into into a different world :)

Oh, the colors are just beautiful! An the plants in this one really brought a smile on my face. Can't tell why thought cause I really don't know. The way how the buildings aren't so sharp in the distance anymore is a nice toutch. It's almost like a distant dream which won't be an easy thing to reach. The bridge divides the way back there nicely. An to this sorrowful looking place the white bird brings light! That was my first thought really :)

i feel like faving all your gallery man, your works are impressive in general, as is your constant play with light and shadow in particular :) There's this touch of fairy tale in most of your works which i adore, though i'd like to see something darker in thematology either.

Maybe you'd like to have a look in another great painter i've linked in my current journal; Christina. :)

This is a great piece of art, beautiful, creative and technically amazing too. I really like the colors you've chosen. The bridge and the vines look very close to photorealistic, though I like the fact that the picture isn't entirely realistic and has a slightly surreal twist. You should consider selling your work as prints, I'm sure they would be well-liked.

Good work, it feels sad and sunny at the same time. I love how you did flowers and sky :), very good lighting everywhere - just maybe the right building's shadows could be darker.
emerica2124 Featured By Owner May 7, 2004
wow, this is fantastic, VERY nice work here indeed! great perspective :D
phatzui Featured By Owner May 7, 2004   Photographer
wow, the colors are beautyful. I have always liked those color combinations and I also enjoy the "angry clouds" vs the "peace dove" or "good vs bad" if you wish. :]
the style you've used is perfect too. I can't see why anyone have noticed this piece... great work!

:thumbsup: :+fav:
