Welcome to my Inner World. I am a French self-taught artist, and these past twenty years I have made Norway my home. Moving to the Lofoten islands was the greatest present I ever made to myself and the Arctic landscapes are indeed a true treat for any artist’s eyes. I live with my British soulmate,… Continue Reading
Melissandre is an inventor. She loves creating magical devices. I think it’s a rather cool place to live, under the water.Traduction ici
Lirael is inspired by the book of the same title, second volume of Garth Nix’s trilogy “The Old Kingdom”. I’ve read it several times, I love the settings. And the dog. This is one of the best descriptions of magic I’ve ever read. Some sequences still haunt me endlessly, like the first time Sabriel enters the Old Kingdom. Every time I go cross country skiing in the forest, I think of this very very special atmosphere. I also love the Abhorsen’s house with its strange servants.Traduction ici
The Voyage of Bran son of Febal
’TWAS fifty quatrains the woman from unknown lands sang on the floor of the house to Bran son of Febal, when the royal house was full of kings, who knew not whence the woman had come, since the ramparts were closed.
This is the beginning of the story. One day, in the neighbourhood of his stronghold, Bran went about alone, when he heard music behind him. As often as he looked back, ’twas still behind him the music was. At last he fell asleep at the music, such was its sweetness. When he awoke from his sleep, he saw close by him a branch of silver with white blossoms, nor was it easy to distinguish its bloom from that branch. Then Bran took the branch in his hand to his royal house. When the hosts were in the royal house, they saw a woman in strange raiment on the floor of the house. ’Twas then she sang the fifty quatrains to Bran, while the host heard her, and all beheld the woman.
I think no world fascinates me more than the underwater one. In 2009, I travelled for the first time to a tropical place and there, tried some snorkelling. Alas, it was on the last day and only for a short while. Since then, I’ve become addicted. There’s hardly a week where I don’t dream of coral reefs and turquoise waters.
I pictured here one of my most favorite gods, Enki, god of wisdom.Traduction ici
