Friday Pretties: Watercolor fun

Hi dear friends! Have a pretty friday and a wonderful weekend!

I'm having a crazy time at the moment, lots of turmoil in business that takes so much time and energy. I need some simple pleasures now - sun, birdsong, ice-cream, a nap, a visit to your lovely blogs ... What are you craving this weekend?

  4. My dear, dear Martina,

    DID YOU PAINT THIS PAINTING? Whoever did, bravo to them; it is so perfect and lovely! Well let's see...what do I crave this weekend? A clear head (my students come back to school on Tuesday), REST, confidence in my skills as a teacher, TIME to enjoy my past times (harp-playing, drawing, cleaning my house, shopping) and just some DOWN TIME to read!!!! Seeing your gorgeous blog just reminded me of all theh lovely people out there, like YOU!!! Happy weekend, Anita

  5. Dear Martina,what a beautiful,colorful painting.I love it!!
    I am going to enjoy the last (long)weekend before the school starts on Tuesday and with it the daily routine of being a mother of the 8th grader :) Hope you have a wonderful weekend yourself.........xo Monika

  6. Oh Martina this is sooo pretty! I love all the colors...a perfect match for my gumballs.

  7. Oh Martina, really, your painting is exquisite and so professional! My little mermaid is an attempt to draw after a 40 year hiatus in art. But I am enjoying myself and LIFE IS GOOD! Thank you for your kind encouragement and support and I will think of all the warm wishes as I start ON TUESDAY with 50 students!!!!!

    Stay warm dearest; we are getting a little chillier, but you know, I love it that way. TEA TIME!!!! Blessings, Anita

  8. This is so pretty! I'm hoping for simple pleasures too.....for all of us! Martina, thank you so much for your beautiful words of enthusiasm & blog kindness.

    For me it is close to midnight right now. I kissed hubby goodnight and I started the coffee maker. I'm going to tidy up the studio and think about the next art project I crave!

  9. So pretty! It seems I am craving sleep! so boring, no? :)
