Power of the Silence

While painting the wonderful transformations happen on the canvas. The portrait of the artist’s heart replaces the original drawing. So the painter becomes the spectator of his own work and the silence burst with the incredible stories. There is no such thing as unattractive subject of viewing. We encounter the dull surrounding just at a moment we stop our ears, when we allow our lips to mourn – to replace the listening to the nature with the sharing the personal prejudices.
Therefore the saying appeared: :The picture is worthy hundreds of words”.

The physical shape of things impacts a little what we see, because we enjoy not the bricks of some building, for example, but identify ourselves with the people who inhabit there – we see not them, but ourselves in them and look at the world through the eyes of the heart. Thus one and the same object may look the totally different. Just click on the links below and compare the Power of the Silence with the Summer Tale. The Home Sickness gives one more impression, yet all these pictures were drawn from one and the same object. As we talk about the humanity, about our spirituality or dream about the Peace, everything looks so nicely, yet our day to day life reveals lots of things that should be yet improved. In other words, all artworks are the mirrors and not all pictures that attract our eyes warm the hearts.

  1. Indeed silence communicates a lot. It won’t seem an exaggeration if I say that silence communicates better than words can at times, if not always. Thanks for sharing such wonderful thoughts.


  2. Well said. When we point a finger and realize that four are pointed back at us, then we understand that whatever we say and do, they have great implications in our life; they are a good indication of our character.


  3. The Power of Silence painting is beautiful, I can see the flying spirits going into the light. Very creative and love your poems.


  4. Tomas that painting is so beautiful and a bit haunting. I can see the spirit of a person shining through and every time I look at it I see something different. Just wonderful!


  5. You continue to bring me back. I love your poetic spirit and the creativity that oozes out of you. Thank you for your contributions to that which is.


  6. I like the one about better than the other two. Here’s my stab at this. Homesickness fits because it is out of focus and the colors appear drab. The title fits though.Summer tale reminds me of lush vegetation and sparkling blue water. So that title fits.The Power of Silence is my favorite because I like the colors. They are proud and bold without saying a word.Have a terrific day. 🙂
