Friday Art: Doggy painting

I have no fear of making changes, destroying the image, etc., because the painting has a life of its own.
Jackson Pollock 

This is a quote that shows much about the spirit of collaborative art. One has to trust the other, to do the right thing - not always easy, but full of discovereies and surprises. This weekend, i'll participate in open studio event at my friends house. That friend i do collaborative art with from time to time - Andrea. Among the things shown will be the dogy-painting you see above.  It's foggy fall weather today and i feel like having a rest, cook soup, bake apple-pie ... but all this will have to wait until sunday.  Hope you're all have a cozy time - will come round for tea!


  1. You are always welcome for tea Martina:)
    And the Doggy Foggy conditions looks amazing!!
    All the best.
    Have a fabulous weekend:)

  2. Love the painting and quote, I agree :) It's cold and windy here, I will need to wrap up warm and drink something warm soon too. An baked apple pie sounds wonderful :) I hope you have a wonderful weekend and get to do something fun :) xx

  3. MARTINA MY FAVORITE MODERNIST!!! Oh, how fabulous is this, to come on my last day off, to enjoy the bliss of visiting my pals who love art. I just love this rendering, for anything with nature in a whimsical way always puts a smile on our faces!!!

    How are you today? I am de-stressed for the moment! ENJOY YOU TIME THIS WEEKEND, Anita

  4. I love this piece! I hope you enjoy this weekend, it sounds like fun and that you are able to get cozy on Sunday.

  5. this dog is so cute! My cozy time will also have to wait until Sunday:)

  6. Oh my friend..have your sweet doggie! Just wish I was closer to you...I would pop on over...hugs. xoxox

  7. You are so busy with that open studio event, Ooooh, would I love to come! I am with you on the delgihts of homemade soup, apple pie.....

    I pulled out my breadmaker machine (it has sat unused for a couple of years, I forget about it!) and had a pre-packaged bread mix and made 'homemade' rolls for dinner the other night with deli-purchased soup. I was so excited as I smelled the bread cooking.... but it was a total DUD. I really need to get back to making some completely home-made delicious comfort food!

    Like you, I am often just so busy with ART, one does not have time for everything!!!!

    Enjoy the compliments and sales sure to be had this weekend Martina!

  9. I would imagine that would have to be the spirit. I love that saying. I should try to take it on myself :)

    have a wonderful weekend, Martina! xxo

  10. Oh Martina dearest, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A FUN SATURDAY! I can only imagine how wonderful that art opening is going be be. I had a good day; I attempted to take some photos of my Etsy shop products, but they came out TERRIBLE!!! But tonight, I have another strategy that MIGHT work. My kitchen counter has cut glass sparkles on the marble. The light on my stove hood shines down in a way that I THINK may pick up the light on my glittered products so MAYBE I can have some things to post in my shop!

    THANK YOU FOR VISITING ME DEAR FRIEND and get your rest! Anita

  11. sounds like a wonderful weekend ahead. enjoy the company and the art making!

    take care martina!

    I love the sweet dog painting and the fog.
    Wouldn't it be great to be able to have tea together.

  14. Love this dog painting!! I can imagine it would be hard to trust a fellow artist when collaborating. But, it must be rewarding as well!

    Have a great weekend!

    & all wonderful :) I am so glad you did though! You are teaching me some good life lessons here Martina!

  20. Ein ganz tollen Monntag, liebe Martina. I like your idea of the cheer-up-bracelet, as you posted in your previous post, very much!! What brilliant idea, I am going to remember it.
    Hope the sun is shining in Deutschland too. Love to you xxxx

  21. Beautiful!! That does take a lot of trust in a friend. How wonderful to see the combined results of both of your work together. My husband brought home an apple pie on Friday night to share with the family. It was bought at a place called: Casa De Fruta. Oh my, that was the best tasting apple pie. YUM! :)

    Thank you for your very kind words you gave me about the passing of my dear step dad. I appreciate your sweet blogging friendship!

    Have a wonderful week my sweet artistic friend!


  22. Danke für Deinen Kommentar bei mir. Finde ich toll, dass Du auch Humor besitzt :-)) Hoffe, Dir ist der Apfelkuchen gelungen. Hört sich jedenfalls nach einem sehr abwechslungsreichem Wochenende an.
    Dann wünsche ich Dir eine angenehme Woche.
    Sonnige Grüße

  23. Adorable doggie waiting for a good home! Hope he found it at your open studio :)

    And the Jackson Pollack quote is SO true...
