  2. i didn't make a count, but i'm sure there must be ten (or thereabouts). i didn't miss the colors, though. And since i know nothing of conjuring or the arcana of supernatural practices, i can only make the observation that the spells appear to have worked.

    1. ahahah, Prospero doesn't know anything of arcana... you must try harder if you want me to believe that :-)
      they appear to have worked, but maybe they are only temporary spells and then i need even more powerful magic to keep this Alice in the colourful world :-)

  3. hello beautiful Roxana,thankyou for another masterpeice and what a colorful extravaganza shimmering with beautiful life and light!!ah and the rock struck with pale violet light in the first image as if there is the splitting of rock for a resurrection to life and the miraculous purity of white veiling the image and how I dream also of MOnet's water lilies series.
    and the brilliant fish a chinese wish for a surplus and I say a wealth of spirit and mind and health and the pagoda representing the temple of our hearts and the pater noster of the pagoda's steeple and the eleventh bead of the drooping foliage and the black ink dripping from the foliage to write this fantastic day and the flying insects across the pale shimmering waters reminding us of our existential nothing and everything circling in the skywaters and the last image oh the ephemeral white fragments of the sky floating across the misdelivery of our mortal landscape


    and my friend I wish you all ofthese wonderful things that you have painted here
    and sending you kisses coloured in springtime

    1. Madeleine, you really pointed out every single hue and symbol in this series which is, of course (and always) dedicated to Monet, as you rightly guessed :-) thank you for your keen and sensitive eye!
      spring kisses back :-)

  4. Very peaceful series. I love the photos 7 and 10 as they look more mysterious and slightly more abstract. A bientôt.

  5. oh,my god!!!
    atata frumusete,am incremenit si am ramas asa,incremenita....daca nu ar fi existat niciodata culori,cred ca acum,astfel,au fost inventate,in dulcea lor aplecare spre liniste.si asta simt cel mai bine:pace desavarsita in culori...
    minunat,dincolo de orice cuvinte...

  6. einfach wunderschön, was kann man sagen, nichts... ich sehe und bin sprachlos... du weisst, wie sehr ich monet liebe, aber das muss ich sagen, deine bilder gefallen mir noch viel besser, sie sind irgendwie überweltlich und in einer hinsicht auch religiös. das letzte bild hat einen ganz besonderen platz verdient... im herzen! ich danke dir, liebste roxana, wie gut es tut, diese wunderbare, friedliche tiefe schöne (und und und... :-)!) kunst zu sehen! alles liebste von renée

    1. oh meine Liebe, besser als Monet!!! das ist ja ein grossartiges Kompliment, das mich riesig freut (auch wenn ich natuerlich zu bescheiden bin, um zu glauben, dass es den Tatsachen entspricht :-)
      ich verstehe, warum Du hier vom religioesen Gefuehl sprichst... Michael editiert im Moment ein buddhistisches Buch (die Lebensgeschichte eines tibetanischen Masters) und er hat das letzte Bild (das Lotus-Bild) fuer die Titelseite gewaehlt!!! (ich war darueber sehr gluecklich :-)
      viele liebste Gruesse und bis sehr bald!

    1. i know :-)

      i have already been twice in this garden, in different years, and both times the impressions i got were different, yet equally rich and delightful...
      (my spring is almost here, indeed :-)

  10. colours, yes, incredibly deep and alive ... as if the colours themselves were the better reality, and the things only came to inhabit them for a time :-)

    but i think you conjure more than just the colours -- i think you conjure a world to contain them and a self to delight in them. very powerful spells, indeed!!

      i can't say anything in reply, as this is too beautiful... i am inhabiting this poem for a while, silently...
      (thank you)

  11. It is joyful to see the color, but I find the play of light throughout to be equally joyful and oh, so lyrical.

    1. you are right :-)
      these were magical moments, i would say, if i weren't afraid that these words have turned into a cliche...

  13. Mmmm...all so lovely. Enchanting. Calling back the colours; and yet, I think my favourite here is the one in silver, black, and grey. Perhaps because of the brilliance of the light emanating from the lily pads, dazzling my spirit. Or maybe it's because I am still snowblind and need to move more cautiously back into the realm of colour.

    1. still snowblind?!!! oh yes, that is canada :-)
      (just teasing you :-)

      my favourite ones are this one that you mention, i think, and the last one, the lotus.
