Painting the Town Red! October 20, 2013

Another Sunday…already.  This photograph was taken during the week upon entering Arco from the river.  One of the more historical buildings is under rennovation and it was a cloudy day…here’s the results of a bit of red paint!

Painting the Town Red: October 13, 2013

Today is Sunday, and so I paint the town red…this is a small square near the center of Arco in Trentino, Italy.

Wouldn’t you say it needs a little brightening up?

Sunday Painting the Town Red!

Hello World…this is my fist official Painting the Town Red on this blog!  Since Bastet and Sekhmet didn’t pos one last week, I thought I’d offer you two!  These are just simple ones, I’ll work out something more interesting for next week  😉

Red Tower Collage

This is a small church dedicate to the “Alpini” soldiers who come from our mountain regions.  I’ve  made a collage with three versions of the photograph to get this effect adding a “cross process” to “pixelize” ithe results a bit.

I use this photograph as my header:  I rendered it into black and white then “warmified” bringing out the reddish skin tone several times, then I “saturated” it!

Have a great Sunday everyone, and paint your town red today!

Sunday Painting the Town Red: 25 August 2013

I was thinking I wouldn’t get my Sunday in red done today, but then I saw this photo as I was listening to Peter Gabriel’s “Red Rain” et voilà.

The poem is not one of my happy poems though.  I imagine that if the Earth crys red rain it would reflect a deep and desparate passion.

Free Verse

Red Rain

Earth on fire
lost in her desire
to free herself
from pain,
the eternal nights
of fraternal fights,
her tears of despair
cannot cleanse herself
of the blood
that has been shed
in the name
of
God
Country
and
Honor.

This is the original photograph:
