<h4>Marine offertory</h4>

Hi to all my dear Steemians friends.
Today I share an artistic experiment, very close to surrealism.
I have extrapolated from the original context an antique vase, with the floral composition.
Where could I put the vase with flowers?
Clear, in the middle of the sea, on a small ground level.

<b>A different way of representing a gift, a piece of decor like a simple vase.</b>

![20190519_123850.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmf2zAUjhmda47caGE8kQeJqUFARrfjEQuJ2ZJCg49QS2G/20190519_123850.jpg)

An unusual context, where the beauty of the ancient and of the flowers contrasts with the sea, of which I have also distorted the horizontal line, inclining it.
I represented a symbolic offering to the god of the sea with an ancient but human beauty.

A classic artifact full of flowers, which stands out in the middle of the sea, rising to the sky.

Below I share my source of inspiration, the photographs of the stables of a 16th century palace in <b>Bomarzo</b> in Italy.

A marvelous combination of nature, trees, plants and architecture, in an atmosphere of quiet and enchanted.
<b>Good nature and good sea to you.</b>
A hug.
Armando

<h4>Offertorio marino</h4>

Ciao a tutti cari amici Steemians.
Oggi condivido un esperimento artistico, molto vicino al surrealismo.
Ho estrapolato dal contesto originario un vaso antico, con la composizione floreale.
Dove potevo inserire il vaso con i fiori?
Chiaro, in mezzo al mare, su un piccolo piano di terra.

Un modo diverso di rappresentare un dono, un oggetto di arredamento come un semplice vaso.

Un contesto inusuale, dove la bellezza dell'antico e dei fiori, contrasta con il mare, di cui ho stravolto anche la linea orizzontale, inclinandolo.
Ho rappresentato un offerta simbolica al dio del mare con una bellezza antica ma umana.

<b>Un manufatto classico pieno di fiori, che svetta nel mezzo del mare, innalzandosi al cielo.</b>

![20190519_123838.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmQWPXVdDnRB8VkvSB6GFE9fsuL1sju7ENZ869jgXBuWXt/20190519_123838.jpg)

Di seguito condivido la mia fonte di ispirazione,  le fotografie delle scuderie di un palazzo del 1500 a <b>Bomarzo</b> in Italia.

Un connubio meraviglioso di natura, alberi, piante e architettura, in una atmosfera di quiete ed incantata.
<b>Buona natura e buon mare a voi.</b>

Un abbraccio.

Armando

A very nice drawing, Armando :) It really entertains me greatly that you have placed such a floral structure that is most often found in gardens in the middle of the sea ! The contrast, the juxtaposition, is simply a delight to my mind :D 

Beautiful colours, as usual, I really like how you frame the floral and stone arrangement in the middle of the sea and sky, the colour blue really forms a natural border for the center piece of this artwork nicely :D
