NEW. Fine Art Picture ~Little heart~

My new picture ~Little heart~ was inspired by the clouds I see every time I travel and the thoughts that I would love to dance on them 😉 This is just a fragment of it, please visit my Facebook page to view it full.

AND I posted a video because I often hear a question – how do you make it? These are just a few steps-shots you’ll see in a video until the picture is done. Usually I don’t see the final picture in my head when I start but I have a thought or a vision which comes true or becomes something completely different.

My photo presented in a Woman in M.E. III exhibition

~Through the eyes of a child~
~Vaiko akimis~

This photo was presented in a project/exhibition “Woman in M.E.III”. It represents a beautiful, strong woman, tender mom, unique personality I am honored to be friends with. After she gave birth to her wonderful son, her sight got worse, to a minimum because of the diabetes she had since she was 8. Now, as she says, she learned to do the things she never did when she had a good sight – play the piano, dance, write songs, see things differently. And I believe this is a God gift. I admire her poetry, songs and they make me feel more things which are not obvious.

The EYES on her arms – her son’s eyes, they actually are her eyes now..

The SONG in the back is Slumber Song, by Schumann 1941, which I “accidentally” found to give this picture a mood – peace, comfort, grateful motherhood. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFrierI1Aiw)
Just one of her songs is here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=628073727241996&set=vb.100001181236362&type=2&theater and you can find more on her FB page

The NAME for this picture was given by Severina’s son – Aidas! He is almost 7. I didn’t name it myself on purpose. It was a feeling I could not describe looking at this picture but Aidas did a great job here! He is incredible, have a look at his own song here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=792340620778095&set=vb.100000064921362&type=2&theater

**…mano vaikystės draugė – viena iš dvyniu, su ja pažįstamos nuo darželio laikų, kartu laukėmės, aš antro, ji pirmo vaiko.. …ji susirgo cukriniu diabetu. Nepaisant gydytojų nepalankios nuomonės, ji net nesvarstė, ar gimdys ar ne. lki šiol jai Aidas – didžiausia Dievo dovana. Ji nuolat sakydavo – ‘gyvenu viena karta, todėl reikia džiaugtis šia akimirka ir gailėtis to, ko dar nepadariau’. Ji visuomet buvo linksma, pasitikinti savimi, graži mergina.
Po gimdymo iš tikrųjų jos sveikata ėme sparčiai blogėti, ypač rega. Jai atliko kelias operacijas..buvo momentai, kai ji galvojo, kad niekada nebematys..Ačiū Dievui, šiandien dienai ji šiek tiek mato, tačiau didžiai visų nuostabai, po sunkaus periodo, ji ėme kurti muziką ir dainuoti! Žinau, kad nuo vaikystes kurdavo nerealius eilėraščius, tačiau kai išgirdau jos dainas, abstulbau. Beje, jipradėjo ir šokti ir daryti daug dalykų, kurių nedarė regėdama. Bet didžiausias stebuklas buvo, kai ji dalyvaudama vienoje aklųjų ir neregių stovykloje, prisėdusi prie seno fortepijono ėme groti..nematydama!
Aš verkiau kai klausiausi..nes tai buvo tiesiog nesuvokiama, ji niekad negrojo ir nedainavo anksčiau..
Na iš tiesų, ji gal savo istoriją plačiau ir tiksliau aprašytu..
šiai dienai, ji man, bene, stipriausia pažįstama moteris ir mama, jos sūnus – nerealus vaikas.. ji puikus pavyzdys kiekvienai verkšlenančiai dėl smulkmenų moteriai…na, man ji tiesiog stebuklas – Severina.

Mission – The month without the trousers – accomplished!

That was a very unusual MAY, the month without the trousers but really fun and womanish 🙂 I can truly say that every single day I ACTUALLY WORE that outfit which is in the photo from morning (after sports) till night, not just put it on for the photo. There was only one day when I was not able to wear a dress because I had lots of work outside. I am glad I made it and had lots of support and encouragement. I celebrated 31 May and all my “dressy” month by the beach, swimming with a dress;) Few remarks on this project:

Best part of it:

1. I remembered all women who inspire me the most and wrote why.

2. I looked after myself and felt more confident.

3. I smiled more.

4. I got numerous of compliments

5. I found out that my bum is not that big and it can be hidden in a dress :))

6. I lost few pounds 😉

7. I didn’t have to wear different clothes every day. I used my imagination, changed parts of it.

Worst part of it:

1. Selfies.. that was the worst thing. The most annoying part of the day when I had to take a selfie for the record!

2. Lack of dresses and skirts in my wardrobe.

3. It’s cold.. when it’s cold outside.

4. Photos were made using my phone, apologies for the quality and posing :))

So, here it is – the whole month and you can find all my photos HERE

The first exhibition I am in – “Woman in M.E.”, London

I am so happy to take part in Woman In M.E. exhibition on 29th May! I’m so grateful for this opportunity. My friend is an inspirational personality, woman, mother.. Her photo will be there  I wrote about her in my blog:  https://amoophoto.wordpress.com/2013/11/09/the-strongest-person-i-know/ 

She came to me all the way from Lithuania with her son who is also a part of our picture which will be there, on the wall and we are all excited as it is in two days. The picture will be revealed after the opening of the exhibition. Visit my Facebook page to get the latest updates.

A month without the trousers starts NOW!

Recently a friend told me about the project called “May – a month without the trousers” and I promptly joined in…because normally I wear ONLY trousers.. I don’t like skirts or dresses because I feel fat when I see myself in them..I wouldn’t say that I feel skinny in jeans .. no 🙂 but I just don’t feel comfortable when my femininity can be so obvious .. this thing – a dress…makes it obvious.. I always try to hide it behind the big balls :)) which, in fact, aren’t that big at  all.. So..this month, every day, I challenge myself to wear a dress or a skirt… or anything else but the trousers or anything similar to them (except when I got to the gym :))…and I will try to DO IT for all the woman who inspired me because God created me, a woman, for a particular reason, why is it so hard to love myself as I am? Fat or skinny.. too short..too much stretchmarks..too many moles, crooked legs..  omg..I was never enough for myself and really nobody was so harsh on me as I was on myself, ever.  And it is not that easy to change what was set as a default .. but I am learning. I am trying. I already made some big steps towards and I need to move on because no person can really love others without loving him or herself. Sometimes it starts with a quiet time just for you, or a cup of coffee, or a chat with a friend, or letting go of your past.. or.. a dress 🙂 After all, I have amazing teachers all around me! This exciting month I will start dedicating my day for the most important woman in my life – my mom, who is an example of a hard-working, punctual, responsible, strong and determined but also creative, sensitive and sensible woman. So, today I will wear a dress for my mom  ❤ 

I’ll post my pictures for the following days at my Facebook page. Join me if you like the idea, send me (on Facebook or a@moophoto.co.uk)  your DRESSY pictures and a short note what makes you feel good about being a woman, who inspires you, what do you do to truly accept all of you as you are? There are so many woman lacking self confidence, you may brighten their day up or even give them the wings!  I’ll post your pictures on my Facebook page and will randomly choose one of you for a FREE PHOTO SESSION at the end of the month!
