Friday art: Art journal pages


Bloom!

Is my "theme" for 2011 and these 2 pictures from an older art journal seem to resonate with that. I'm currently working on a new set of canvases, currently covered in a golden yellow, and am so happy, that the sun is still warm and lovely around here. Light is so important for painting, and best of all, natural light. But light is vital for our emotional life as well. Did you notice, how many people are smiling, on a fine, sunny day? I hope the sun will be smiling on all of us this weekend!

    Yesterday here was so warm sunny and beautiful, like a summer day and oh how I enjoyed it even though I was just cleaning house! I opened the doors, cut some flowers for a bouquet.... oh yes, the yellow sun brightens our hearts!

  11. Dearest, dearest Martina!

    Yes, stress is taking over the entire day. There is so much to do, very little time to do it in and then there are the various needs of each student. It is too much. BUT IT IS FINALLY FRIDAY and I am hoping that YOU my friend, will have quiet moments to gather your health and senses...I sure need it!

    SENDING YOU MUCH LOVE...have you noticed a drop in blog comment? I have...I wonder what I have done wrong!!! Maybe everyone else is busy too?

  13. Dear Martina,

    Beautiful and uplifting post dear friend and love that you are doing some new paintings with the bloom theme. Sunshine does make for a happy and smiley person ~ here it is a little overcast today but we could do with some rain for the new plants I put in.

    Happy weekend
    Hugs

  19. I've had that golden yellow on my mind...when I go to take pictures, I head straight for the thing that is that color...and also dress children in it or hand them a marigold!
