Getting started ...

... on a new painting is exiting - a new challenge every time.

With color one obtains an energy that seems to stem from witchcraft.
(Henri Matisse)

Maybe that is why it feels so invigorating to spread colour, revel in it, enjoy it, the pure energy of it. Beginning this way, just painting freely with a colour, is such fun. I wish i will learn to keep this lightness for the whole time of working on a painting!


  1. I too feel invigorated when I spread color on my palette! Your photograph has all my favorite colors :)
    Thank you Martina for your kindness. We will get through this together!

  2. Yes, we will :) Have a lovely day Gina!
