A French self-taught artist, Eliora has been painting abstract and figurative artworks for ten years, mainly skyscapes and women portraits. Very concerned with the respect and protection of our environment, she only uses acrylic painting. Eliora has a passion for colors and likes to work with them in their natural, original state, before creating nuances and shades by adding water in successive layers, in order to give wash-paint effects and a dream-like, poetic, mysterious and almost surreal character to her paintings. She does not so much seek to represent reality as to convey emotions, by painting a “romantic” outlook on life, in the literary sense of the word.

Eliora is convinced that painting is not only an art form, but beyond this a language in itself. Granted, a language without a voice, but unencumbered by the limitations of that voice – an art form which gives her complete freedom of expression and is fed with romantic poetry, and music (mainly classical, jazz and soul). This art form appeals to all human senses and cannot exist if it is not shared with other people, which is the reason why Eliora always tries to get them implicated in the “reading” of her paintings : they are always conceived as if she were writing a detective story : each painting tells a story, and the beholder must find the key to its enigma and its particular message – which are generally to be found in the name of the painting, the symbolism of colors and the inspiration sources of the Artist.

Why Exchanging links

I have found that there is no point in having a lovely exhibition if nobody can find it. If a website is a rewarding experience and provides links to useful and interesting content, visitors will keep coming back for more. Don’t worry about links pointing away from your site. If you never get many visitors there in the first place, it isn’t going to be an issue anyway.

Gaining top search engine listings can be difficult, but by seeking topic-related links pointing to your site, you can dramatically increase the number of visitors you receive.

You’ll probably find that by acquiring these links, the number of visitors that access your site via search engine listings will also improve. Why is this? Search engines position your site in their search results according to various complicated factors. One influencing factor is link popularity” basically, they are assessing the importance of your site by how many other sites link to it.
