Let your art guide you - weekly challenge

Still working on the peonies. I've posted this painting the other day, but this time painted the flowers.

No finished artworks, just glimpses of my messy studio.
I've been playing with shades of blue, letting the colour run and drip while contemplating about water and how precious it is. Can't get that oil spill out of my save the live of the ocean - but what to do?

Meanwhile my friend Andrea saved a little baby titmouse her son found on the street, naked and almost dead. With a lot of love, warmth and many insects they managed to bring it to live, and it grows from day to day, growing feathers and flapping it's tiny wings. Reminds me of a quote i read the other day by mother Theresa:
"We cannot all do great things, but we can do small things with great love"

I hope you've had some creative adventures as well and can't wait to visit you soon!

  3. Martina darling the peonies in your painting are more beautiful than the real ones. You are extremely talented darling. I would give one of my precious teacups for just a pin size of your talent. When it comes to painting, I am sad to say I have two broken left hands.

    Darling, I thank you my lovely friend for your support during a time when I need it the most. Your genuinely loving and caring comments always lift my spirits. I am especially grateful for your friendship, you are priceless, a rare gem of a friend.

    I am delighted to be back blogging again and look forward to our daily visits. Take care my friend. I wish you a sunny and happy summer full of blessings.

    Love & Hugs
