Let your art guide you - weekly challenge

I work in whatever medium likes me at the moment.
Marc Chagall

Some "art of heart" cards i did from the design i posted the other week. They were meant as a B-day present for a friend, but if i find time to add some more variations, i might put them in an Etsy-shop. I found beautiful matching envelopes in different shades of pink - such fun to play with these things!
The rose and wildflower bouquet is a present i got from a dear friend who came to tea last sunday - pure luxury

I've started on three new paintings too, but they need some more time to ripen and be presentable. Now, that the days are longer i enjoy having some artist time in the evenings. Sometimes that means, just looking at things and offering elderflower-champagne to the muses :)


  1. An inspiring post Martina! I love hearts AND flowers :)

  2. Love love your hearts and I love love love the colors you used, Martina!
    Sweet, inspiring post!!
    have a lovely evening. xx

  3. Hello Martina,I love your cards!!! Enjoy your beautiful bouquet and elderflower champagne...lucky girl :) No elder trees in my area and I do miss the flower clusters and the berries every year. Have a wonderful week.....

  4. your cards are wonderful.....i have such a soft spot for hearts!! enjoy your painting time!! :))

  5. oh i love all the prettyness going on here in this post! the hearts are adorable..and the flowers...well, let's just say that I can almost smell them!

    as far as letting your paintings ripen, nonsense! i think you should share your in-between stages too....it's so wonderful to see another artist's process of creativity!

    that's my opinion! lol
    have a great night!
