FM.Marche.Itani Si Che BELLISSIMA✪Le ❙t e Amo<3

The Marche is one of the 20 Regions of Italy. The Italian name Le Marche is the plural of marca, and literally means "the Marches", originally referring to the medieval March of Ancona and nearby marches of Camerino and Fermo.
The Marche are located in the Central area of the country, bordering Emilia-Romagna and the republic of San Marino to the north, Tuscany to the north-west, Umbria to the west, Abruzzo and Lazio to the south and the Adriatic Sea to the east. Except for river valleys and the often very narrow coastal strip, the land is hilly. In the nineteenth century, a railway from Bologna to Brindisi linked the Marche along the coastline of the entire territory. Inland, the mountainous nature of the region, even today, allows little travel north and south, except by rough roads over the passes.

Artist Creates Incredible Watercolor Portraits Using Coffee

Artist Creates Incredible Watercolor Portraits Using Coffee | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Artist Maria Aristidou creates incredible portraits of famous figures using a surprising material: coffee. The United Kingdom-based painter initially stumbled upon the medium as a substitute for traditional water coloring, but now she’s developed it into a kind of science. She’s experimented with a variety of brands and consistencies to develop the range of colors that enables her artistic freedom. “Firstly made by accident, coffee painting has really grow on me,” she says. “Painting like I would with watercolors, I use many different blends and brands in order to get the right shade, depending on the design.”
When a new painting is brewing in Aristidou’s studio, a casual observer could mistake her palette for a mug of coffee and an espresso shot sitting on a scalloped saucer. But a closer look reveals that the saucer is compartmentalized, and each section holds a different color of coffee. Together, the different brews all combine on canvas to bring a breathtaking figure to life.…

Exquisite Pen Drawings Created with Thousands of Tiny Dots

Exquisite Pen Drawings Created with Thousands of Tiny Dots | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Using thousands upon thousands of tiny dots, Spider Money produces gorgeous artworks that are awe-inspiring in their detail. The Bangkok-based creative wields a mighty Micron pen and draws fancy flourishes with photo-realistic depictions of eyes, noses, and lips. It’s in these facial features that Spider Money employs her “dot-drawing technique.” She individually dabs the minuscule marks onto the paper and repeats the tedious motion until things take on a shaded form.
There’s a beautiful juxtaposition that comes from Spider Money’s drawing style. Since the highly-realized is paired with the decorative, they could look like totally separate elements on the page. The artist has instead blended them together, and it’s as if the flourishes are a stunning mask for these mysterious faces.
In addition to the living, Spider Money often draws skulls. They could normally read as eerie, but that isn’t the case here. Instead, the Art Nouveau-inspired designs are an exquisite addition that…

Adorable Little Clouds Delightfully Water Potted Houseplants

Adorable Little Clouds Delightfully Water Potted Houseplants | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
In a whimsical twist that brings the great outdoors inside, this little cloud waters your hanging houseplants. The innovative wall hanging is comprised of a resin pot attached to a blue or green backing. Above the pot, a water filtering system disguised as a whimsical cloud hovers over the plant. When water is poured into the reservoir, at the top of the cloud, water drops are dispensed onto the upturned leaves below. Functionally, the adorable planters are useful because they let you hang small pots on your wall, while creatively, they eliminate the need for a watering can.
These charming Rainy Pots, which sell for about $18 from retailer Singeek, are perfect for urban residents who lack outdoor green space and who want to add a splash of nature’s liveliness to their rooms. They're also great for busy homeowners who need a little help keeping their houseplants alive.

Revolutionary New "Skateboard" Removes The Board Completely

Revolutionary New "Skateboard" Removes The Board Completely | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
In a futuristic take on pedestrian transportation, these sidewinding circular skates give users the sensation of “skateboarding” — minus the board. Riders simply place their feet inside the pair of rings, standing on pedal-like platforms that rotate inside the circles on tracks. The concept is straightforward enough, but riders must apply an impeccable sense of balance to propel themselves forward. A rod can connect the two rings to stabilize beginners.
“Riders simply place their feet on the two platforms and lean side-to-side to rotate the rubber wheels around the feet, propelling riders forward in a serpentine motion similar to longboard skateboarding,” the product’s website explains. The overall effect makes riders look like they’re hovering over the sidewalk. Hammacher Schlemmer, a website that carries unique gifts, retails the item at $99.95.
Due to their recent release, the jury is still out on whether the "post-modern skateboard" will become the next craze to grip the…

Heartwarming Portraits of Newborn Babies Smiling Sweetly

Heartwarming Portraits of Newborn Babies Smiling Sweetly | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
West Ealing, London-based photographer Sandi Ford has perfected the art of capturing a baby's precious smile in enchantingly sweet portraits of sleeping newborns. Curled up on soft blankets, these bundles of joy make for a heartwarming sight with their fluffy wisps of hair, soft skin, innocent faces, and infectious grins. The photographer waits for the telltale signs that an infant is going to smile—flickering eyes and funny facial expressions—and waits patiently so she can capture precisely the right moment with her camera.
Ford, who has won several awards for her newborn photography, says the best part of her job is being a part of each family's story. "For many families, I am photographing their first child and I am often their first trip out after coming home from hospital," the photographer shares on PetaPixel. "These pictures go on the walls, they are a legacy, and I helped tell that story. It’s a gift I never take for granted."

Portuguese Street Artist Decorates Electrical Box with Ornate Tile Patterns

By adding decorative tile designs to this electrical box, Portuguese artist Diogo Machado helps passersby look beyond urban infrastructure to appreciate the culture that underlies industrial drudgery. The artist, who also uses the pseudonym Add Fuel, used symmetrical stencils inspired by azulejos — Portuguese tiles — to paint this utility box located in a gentrified neighborhood in the city of Lisbon.
The piece was completed as part of a neighborhood revitalization effort led by nonprofit Mistaker Maker. Interestingly, Machado left part of the box’s original surface intact, complete with graffiti. This detail points to a collision between the area’s deteriorating infrastructure and a resurgence of the arts.
On the surface, the patterns appear ornately traditional and classic in design. However, upon closer inspection, it becomes apparent that Machado blends pop culture symbols and surprising pictures into the motif. In this piece, for instance, the decadent blue swirls turn out to be…

Fascinating Photos of Reindeer People Living in Mongolia

Fascinating Photos of Reindeer People Living in Mongolia | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
After living in Nepal and exploring Tibet and the Himalayas for more than a decade, photographer Hamid Sardar-Afkhami decided he would travel to outer Mongolia to document the nomadic tribes and their unique way of life. A scholar of Tibetan and Mongol languages who received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in Sanskrit and Tibetan Studies, Sardar was just the right person to capture the Dukha people, Mongolia's last nomadic reindeer herders. The Dukha are an ancient group of people of Turk descent who are dependent on reindeer for their way of life. In addition to milk and cheese, the reindeer provide transportation for hunting. They're ridden to hunt wild elk and boar.
The Dukha tribe is quickly disappearing. Only about 44 Dukha families remain, or between 200 to 400 people. In the 1970s, it's estimated that there was a population of about 2,000 reindeer but that number has since dwindled to about 600.

Scott Bisson Brings Whimsical Creatures to Life with Hand Blown Glass

Scott Bisson Brings Whimsical Creatures to Life with Hand Blown Glass | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Artist Scott Bisson translates his love of nature through the timeless art of glassblowing. He creates colorful, whimsical sculptures of creatures like frogs, geckos, octopi, and snakes. Each has their own idiosyncrasies, and Bisson does their unique qualities justice with the amount of intricate details he expresses in his work. Tactile scales, tiny webbed-toes, and finely-curved antennas are all visible, along with decorative psychedelic swirls.
Although Bisson has been a glassblower for 19 years, his fascination with the material goes back further than that. To high school, in fact, when he bent his first glass tube in chemistry class. He was later a hobbyist for several years until he took classes and studied under talented professionals. Bisson even travelled from his home state of Oregon to Murono, Italy and further honed his craft.
Having the skill to produce these delightful sculptures isn’t enough for the artist. “I put a little bit of myself into every work of art I create.…

Bundled in warm layers and weighed down by heavy gear, the adventurous photographer braves the bone-chilling cold of Japan's mountainous regions in order to document spectacular phenomenon in nature. Rushing cascades are frozen in time and suspended in midstream, turning the familiar sight of waterfalls into a stark, elegant winter wonderland.
"I started to become interested in the slow and organic variations of nature," Wakabayashi explains. "I have always been fascinated with the imperceptible growth built from repeated elements in nature. . . Nothing can escape gravity. There is a natural order that exists outside our rationalised ideas. Gravity holds all that exists. I show nature’s order by photographing these effects of gravity that we are not usually aware of in our daily lives."

Breathtaking Wire Sculptures Capture the Fluidity of the Human Body

Breathtaking Wire Sculptures Capture the Fluidity of the Human Body | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
English artist Richard Stainthorp captures the beautiful energy and fluidity of the human body using wire. The life-sized sculptures feature both figures in motion and at rest, expressed in the form of large-gauged strands that are densely wrapped around and through one another. By doing this, he gives the work an undeniable presence. Stainthorp also allows the bent wires to shine by keeping their metallic appearance free from any obvious painting or additions.
Stainthorp has created these alluring artworks for almost 20 years. They don’t have any facial features, but through their body language, we understand their emotions. Some look as though they’re falling and communicate a feeling of freedom or infinite possibility. Another sculpture has a breathtaking set of wire “wings” that appear as its shield. To think that Stainthorp articulates all of this through something as ubiquitous as wire is incredible.

Seattle Artist Creates Beautiful Collages with Flowers and Plants

Seattle Artist Creates Beautiful Collages with Flowers and Plants | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Using a vivid imagination and a sharp eye for gathering plants, Bridget Beth Collins turns relics of nature into beautifully lush collages that form delightfully whimsical scenes. The Pacific Northwest artist forages materials for her pictures from the area surrounding her Seattle home and arranges the pieces into intricate shapes that create a distinctive sense of depth. With her touch, flower petals can transform into regally feathered birds, berries can become sea creatures, and leaves can turn into human faces.
Collins’ love of nature was fostered at a young age, when she traipsed through magnificent mountain meadows during backpacking trips and let her imagination run free in her backyard every afternoon. She pretended she was a fairy and gathered plants to press in books at home. Now, as an adult, Collins continues to be inspired by nature. She says ideas for new pictures constantly jump out at her as she goes about her day. “I go for a walk in my neighborhood or bring a bouquet…

In this exquisite and fully-immersive installation, 2,300 flowers are suspended in a room and respond to the moment when a visitor enters their space. The blooms greet the person by moving towards them and eventually floating close above their head.

The installation is the handiwork of teamLab, a collective made up of tech specialists based in Tokyo, Japan. They call it Floating Flower Garden, and it’s part of a large-scale exhibition at Miraikan National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation.
TeamLab’s interactive display allows a person to become completely one with the garden. The piece was inspired by a Zen koan (a parable) from Nanquan Puyuan, the founder of a famous monastery.

Beautiful Glass Sculptures Inspired by a Vine's Changing Seasons by Hubert Le Gall for Ruinart | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
The world's oldest champagne house, Ruinart, is well known for their creative collaborations with contemporary artists. The House of Ruinart was formed during the Enlightenment period, in 1729, and has since created a strong connection with the art world, commissioning well-known artists and supporting leading art fairs, like Art Basel. This year, French artist and scenographer Hubert Le Gall was chosen to create works that were symbolic of Ruinart's signature chardonnay, the Blanc de Blancs.
A visit to Ruinart's Sillery vineyard in the Reims area provided just the inspiration the artist needed to decide on what form his art would take. Hubert chose glass to express his vision of the House of Ruinart and then flew to Murano, Italy to find the master glassmakers who would bring his ideas, in the form of drawings, to life. The Berengo Studio was chosen because of their long history of working with contemporary artists.

Blind Painter Relies on Touch and Texture to Create Stunningly Vivid Paintings | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
While art has always been a major part of John Bramblitt's life, it wasn't until he completely lost his sight that he tried to paint for the first time. From the age of 11, Bramblitt's vision was gradually stolen from him by epilepsy. By the time he was 30, seizures had rendered him completely blind, sending him into what he calls "the deepest, darkest hole" of depression. "All of the hopes and dreams that I had for my life; all of the plans for what I would do after I graduated school were gone. I was not only depressed, but in mourning. The life that I had, along with the future that I was planning, was dead and gone," he says. "I felt like I had no potential; that basically I was a zero."
It was then, at the lowest point of his life, that Bramblitt resolved to get colors back in his life. A year after he became fully blind, he attempted to learn how to draw without sight by using a kind of fabric paint with raised edges. And although he says his first successful drawing was…

Powerful Ads Remind Us a Woman’s Worth Isn’t Measured by Clothes | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
There’s the old adage that “clothes don’t make the man,” and so why should they have to make the woman? Swiss feminist group Terre des Femmes and the Miami Ad School in Hamburg, Germany recently created an advertising campaign that begs the question. Called A Woman’s Worth, it features three posters demonstrating the ridiculous notions people often have regarding a woman’s attire and her body.
Each powerful image features a different body part - legs, chest, and feet - and has a “ruler” on it that signifies the length of a skirt, height of a neckline and heel. But instead of the measurements conveying inches or centimeters, the markers include terms like, “prude” and “asking for it.” Depending on where your dress falls (or doesn’t fall), people will unfairly judge you for it.
A Woman’s Worth points out the absurdity of these measurements, and implores us to think beyond the style that a person is wearing. Someone’s value is not dependent on their clothing, and it shouldn’t be an…

Todd may be a fox, but he wags his tail, plays with toys, and even walks on a leash just like a dog. The 11-month-old domestic pet belongs to Emma D’Sylva, who rescued the animal seven months ago after his previous owners couldn't take care of him anymore. "He was a bit crazy when he first came to me last year but now he has a really strong bond with me," the 25-year-old told the Daily Mail.
Although the fox kit was much more hyperactive and harder to manage when he first came under Emma's care, he's since become a complete sweetheart and has even picked up a few canine-like behaviors from spending so much time with Emma's two dogs. Todd sleeps in a blanket-lined kennel in his large garden enclosure, plays energetically with Emma's labrador retrievers, and loves to be stroked and cuddled. He can't be let off his leash outside because he's deaf and wouldn't be able to hear Emma calling him back, but Todd still enjoys going for walks with his human and dog friends.

Pools of Recycled Motor Oil Reflect Spectacularly in Switzerland’s Bellelay Abbey | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Inside Switzerland’s Bellelay Abbey, two intriguing pools of recycled motor oil create serene, unbroken reflections of soaring architecture. The chapel’s ornately decorated arches and vaulted ceilings are mirrored in vivid detail on the oil’s rich, glassy surface. Unlike reflections in water, the oil pool minimizes glare and lets viewers gaze deeply into the images.
The addition of the oil pools to the chapel is interesting because it contrasts light and dark in a striking juxtaposition. The oil’s shimmering black surface boldly complements the chapel’s pristine, white-washed walls. The pools were added to the church as part of an art installation by Swiss artist Romain Crelier in 2013. Along with creating a feeling of augmented spaciousness, the reflection pool offers another serene element that inspires introspection.

Russian photographer and all-terrain vehicle driver Fox Grom was taking a stroll with his dogs when he came across a stunning sight—a frozen lake covered with rainwater, making it appear like his two huskies were walking on water. "I always take pictures of my dogs whilst walking them, but on this occasion there was an extraordinary phenomenon," Grom told the Daily Mail.
Grom's surreal photos show how heavy rainfall transformed the lake's thick ice into a smooth, mirror-like surface extending endlessly into the horizon. The two huskies, Alaska and Blizzard, explore the landscape with avid curiosity. With their gorgeous forms reflected in the water beneath them, and the bottom of the lake visible through the translucent glass, the whole experience looks like a scene from a spectacular fairytale or film.
