More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!

  1. I will definitely study his work. There are a number of great painters who paint fantastic Seascapes, but maybe a couple handfuls who tell a powerful story in the paintings, and I just know that in that painting, with that storm from Hell, that that ship is going down to Davey Jone’s Locker very soon, or so the painting is showing me. Good stuff!

    • Oh, but you may never predict what the sea will do, so maybe that ship will be spared! 😉 But yes, no doubt skill is commendable but a. the skill has to be combined with unique character and b. the story you mention. And the ‘story’ is also a very subjective matter… when Van Gogh did his sunflowers what was the ‘story’ behind them? 😉
      All that said, I was speechless when I saw more of his paintings, at the clarity of his translucent waves!

  2. That is an amazing and powerful painting by Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky! Good grief! The skill in the application of paint to create almost photographic realism in the green ocean water…..the translucent quality….I almost have no words except it is on the same level as Turner in my opinion.
