Wing Cutters/Κόφτες Φτερών

“Wing cutters” by Angela Zafiris

Be careful

When you fly up high

Of the wing cutters below

They wait with eyes of envy

And bitter tongues

For you to fly low

And like a predator attack

To make their incisions.

Words of Encouragement

‘Words of Encouragement’ mixed media art painting by Angela Zafiris

The key words in these challenging times. Last year I heard someone-I can’t remember who say these words when discussing the events in 2020 as well as future events. I wrote these words down in a journal and I thought that it would be a good idea to use the words in my artwork where I will be able to see it on a daily basis rather thαn in a note book.

Λεξεις κλειδια για τη δυσκολη εποχη που ζουμε. Πέρυσι άκουσα κάποιον-δεν μπορώ να θυμηθώ ποιος είπε αυτά τα λόγια όταν συζητούσαν τα γεγονότα το 2020 καθώς και μελλοντικά γεγονότα. Έγραψα αυτές τις λέξεις σε ένα ημερολόγιο. Σκέφτηκα ότι θα ήταν καλή ιδέα να χρησιμοποιήσω αυτές οι λέξεις στο έργο τέχνης μου όπου θα μπορούσα να τα βλέπω σε καθημερινή βάση και όχι κρυμμένα σε ένα βιβλίο σημειώσεων.

Tranquility in Chaos

My handmade collage background with a layer of a photograph of a rose that I captured from my garden.

This was a very difficult and challenging year for all of humanity. To accept what is beyond our control and ride the wave or get crushed by it is up to each person. Disasters come and go, and after the end is a new beginning. In the meantime we must go into ourselves and find a bit of peace.

Iris/Ίρις

After the storms come the sunshine and the rainbows. In this case a cool double rainbow.

Brighter days will soon come..

Μετά τις καταιγίδες έρχεται ο ήλιος και τα ουράνια τόξα. Σε αυτήν την περίπτωση ένα διπλό ουράνιο τόξο.

Θα έρθουν σύντομα πιο φωτεινές μέρες ..

“Dare to love yourself
as if you were a rainbow
with gold at both ends.”

You REAP What You Sow/O,τι Σπέρνεις, Θερίζεις

Illustration ‘You Reap What You Sow’ by Angela Zafiris

Happy Halloween!! A little treat for the followers. I drew the reaper getting what he deserves. And a poem in the spirit of Halloween. 🙂

THE GRIM REAPER

The reaper

Looks grim

His patience is wearing thin

He knows he can’t

Come for my soul

Though the hands and feet are cold

But not the heart

It won’t grow cold by the storms

Or by enemies and vampiric energies

The black magic went away

Watch it’s slow decay

Black shadows deflected

By the light

Up into the air

To meet the wrath of the angels

My time isn’t his

Let the reaper despair.

Galatians 6:7-9

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
