Friday Pretties: Some paintings in progress

Happy friday!

A quick peek into my studio wirh an assembly of paintings – finished, unfinished ... I always like to see paintings assembled as groups, influencing each other, forming something like a tune. I can never work on just one canvas a time, there always have to be more of them. And the, looking is just as important as painting. Looking, contemplating the next step – always an adventure!

Have a fun and creative time this weekend, and be inspired by more prettieness here!  


  1. Great art work.Really amazed to know you work simultaneously on many canvas.

  2. Hi Martina,

  10. My sweet, sweet, friend! It was a busy and wild morning and day, and I was not able to visit your LOVELY post this morning. I am home now to see your kind comment. I thank you so much for thinking of me! My laryngitis has turned into a very bad cough; AND YOU? I know that you were sick as well!!! You, me and another dear friend in The Netherlands are very sick right now! I took Wednesday off, only to come back on Thursday having missed some important things. The problem is that so much is expected from teachers and we have double the load this year. Oh I am so looking forward to the weekend that officially starts NOW chez nous! Dearest, enjoy YOUR weekend, CREATE, be with those you LOVE and know that you have a friend here in the USA that cares for you!
    ENJOY! Anita

  11. I enjoyed a peek into your studio... Looks Lovely Martina!
    I cant wait to see those wonderful paintings... Hope you finish them soon:)

  12. Martina, I just got your wonderful comment, but on my blog roll, another title comes up as a post, but not this one! I have a feeling that your newest post has not reached me yet! GET WELL SOON DEAR ONE and thank you for thinking of your COUGHING COLLEAGUE! One day at a time, one cough drop at a time!!! BISOUS, ANita

  13. Oh my gosh, Martina: real art you create here. You read my mind in your comment on my post: a super mouse or super rat is coming soon to blog post near you. So happy to know someone who dreams of super power or magic. Anita enjoyed my post and immediately took up the pencils and drew for me a rat in a cape. He's quite a chubby fellow and shall remain nameless and hidden from the public for the moment.

    Have a great weekend.

  14. Hello Martina,thanks for the "peek" :)) I love your color scheme,beautiful art!

  15. Good morning, Martina! Yes, I think you are correct that sometimes when we compose a draft, that may show up as a post.....because this has happened before....Oh dearest, I am feeling much better! My voice is coming back, but I am still coughing. However, the cough is not as bad as it has been in past times. I do however, have some fresh thyme that is still good in a pot in my garden! I MUST TRY SOME THYME TEA! Herbs are astonishing. Last night, I had a terrible stomach ache from eating too many cough drops....yikes! But I made some green tea, and immediately, I was cured. I hope you are enjoying a quiet and restful day my dear...the week is full of work for us both. Cheers, my dear friend! Anita
