blue swans of porlezza

Posted on:10-04-2021
Werk van Marijke Pielage
oil on wood painting, 40x50x3.5cm
A new painting of one of my favorite items: the elegance of these impressive large birds, returning every year: together forever a pair. Once in Porlezza I saw them so beautifully mirrored in the lake.
The afternoonsun gave them all shades of blue. That image I never forget.

It's a painting on limewood (tintoretto).

'Where people live II' is number two of a new serie paintings and drawings I started at the beginning of 2021. It's about where I live now, and the memories of all the environments I was once a part of. It's about how I experience 'HOME', now and in the past.

Places of towns and villages sometimes far away or long ago. Forgotten images that suddenly appear. The colors, patterns, arrangement and composition of a city, a village, a street, a park. Places where people live who I once knew and who are no longer in my live.

It is a colourful work in oilpaint, pigments and sand, painted on canvas, completed in March 2021.

'Where people live' is the imagination of both the environment where I live now, and the memories of environments I was once a part of.
Places of towns and villages sometimes far away or long ago. Forgotten images that suddenly appear. The colors, patterns, arrangement and composition of a city, a village, a street, a park. Places where people live who I once knew and who are no longer in my live.

It is a work in oilpaint, pigments and sand, painted on linen, completed in February 2021.

In the evening we walk the familiar lanes. The stars and the moon appear above the mountains, the fields, the houses, the trees. All whats in front of us turns into blue.
