There has always been something fascinating about the glimpse out of a window .. high up in a turret looking out onto the medieval town of cluny in France.. the glimpse are otherworldly .. inspiring the imagination to go on a flight of " Who lives there I wonder ... ? "


French Medieval Window Worlds - Milliande Art Snippet
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For me , when a Window is set against a plain background, when the light plays with its shadow like a dance projected, illuminated .. then all kinds of pictured story boards flood in.

Photography for me, has a way of capturing moments of creative inspiration, often fleetingly , snatched between an agenda of climbing endless stairs to reach the top of the turret, with people pushing ahead or falling behind ..moments of insight .. caught in between life.

A window for me, provides a doorway for my muse to enter into .. stories await to be told in paint, art journaled as experienced emotion or simply seen through the eye of my lens .

Medieval windows , like these french ones , carved out holes into deep stone , hold a history .. Who swept their glance out of these windows in medieval times ? When they looked out , what did they see ? What did they fear ? Who did they sing too ?

Today I wonder .. how does it make me feel to touch these stones.. to feel their brittleness yet know that solidity has allowed me to walk these steps so many hundreds years later ...

As I peek out into the sun, my face is warmed by it and I rest for a moment, letting the colors soak in, letting the rooftops guide me from one turret to the next .. and I wonder how all of this will find its way into my art .. one day ...

Simple things look more beautiful and interesting through a medieval window, but you already know this, your pictures speak for themselves. If you're looking for inspiration, you should go to the Boston art gallery someday. The exhibits are true masterpieces and might help you on your future projects.

Actually, I have also done similar works. I think this concept actually works well with old buildings and old architectures. I have experienced this difference in person and I think it goes best with French architectures.
