Day 18 & Lens-Artists PC: Piran sunset colours

When uncle sent me these photos four days ago, I promised him to put them on my blog. I didn’t know I’ll get a chance so soon though. And in my poem, some more (para) romantics. Today the photos first to set the mood. My travelling uncle has a new phone. The first red photoContinue reading “Day 18 & Lens-Artists PC: Piran sunset colours”

Day Two & PPAC: Forma Viva 3.

Today we conclude the visit to the open-air sculpture exhibition on the Slovenian coast, and have a look at some words in my poem for Day Two. Prompt 2: “Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem based on a word featured in a tweet from Haggard Hawks, an account devoted to obscure andContinue reading “Day Two & PPAC: Forma Viva 3.”

PPAC: Forma Viva 2.

Isn’t it inviting on a hot day, this bed of stone? First of all, happy Mother’s Day, mom! In Slovenia, and in the UK too apparently, it’s today. Twenty-three years ago you got a dog as a present, actually three, straight from the trash where we found the entire litter. We gave two away afterContinue reading “PPAC: Forma Viva 2.”

Lens-Artists PC: Curvy stairs

Here is a collection of my more or less curvy staircases from Rome, Slovenia and the curviest garden of all times right here in Tuscany. I was happy to see Leya’s theme for this week’s Lens-Artists photo challenge. Curves are dear and near to my heart. When I saw Sofia’s lovely staircase in her postContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Curvy stairs”

PPAC: Forma Viva 1.

Today we return to a hot summer day in 2017 when I hopped around sculptures on the coast of Slovenia with parents and amore. I’m so grateful to Marsha since her public art challenge makes me revisit and curate some of my favourite days. No wonder that “curate” is her Word of the Year. ThisContinue reading “PPAC: Forma Viva 1.”

PPAC: Piran 7 – Art mix

When I was gathering photos for this series, I already knew which photo will be the last in the final post. I’ll let nature win the art contest. But before the last one let’s have a look at all the little and big art pieces in Piran which are not murals, not church art, notContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 7 – Art mix”

PPAC: Piran 6. – Murals

I was glad to see that Marsha put her post up despite the holidays and that she included my last week’s PPAC post among the featured ones. We are not done with Piran yet. Today: street art in four locations. The first two photos I took in 2017 at the Piran primary school’s playground. QuiteContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 6. – Murals”

PPAC: Piran 5. – Lighthouse and rocks

Who would think that Piran is such an arty town? This is the fifth post from it for our beloved public art challenge and two more are waiting to be posted. Today we look into and around the tiny lighthouse on the tip of the peninsula. It’s true that you need to a pay aContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 5. – Lighthouse and rocks”

PPAC: Piran 3. – Let’s read this place

I am a firm believer in really getting to know a place by reading its walls and other surfaces. Sometimes you won’t like all you learn but at least you’ll know. Not all scribbles that follow are artistic but all have merit in adding soul to the city, no matter what kind this soul turnsContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 3. – Let’s read this place”

PPAC: Piran 2. – Three sculptures

Why don’t we continue our art tour of Piran on the Slovenian coast with three sculptures, one by an Iranian, another by an Argentinian, and the third by two Serbian artists? First this. I have been posting daily since May the 20th. It has come along spontaneously, the idea and the execution, when I decidedContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 2. – Three sculptures”
