Monday Love: Painting adventures







Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
Robert Fulghum  

Am currently painting with my artist friend Andrea, preparing for some art shows in Oktober and November - whenever i have time! Working with colors is so invigorating, and the light outside is still beautiful. Don't you just love this time of year? We had a free monday here in germany, so it still feels like beginning of the week to me. Am sending you light and love from the studio!

  1. I want to cry. To see your BEAUTIFUL smile and to see you in ACTION in your beautifully lit studio, with paintbrush in hand, is like looking at a movie scene....surreal, almost! OH DEAREST, I LOVE THIS QUOTE FOR I BELIEVE that each and every day, we need to do SOMETHING CREATIVE on top of the work that we must do! That is why I try to dance and play music, draw and write every day, to some degree! YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL MARTINA!!!!!! BISES, Anita

  12. Good morning my beautiful friend! Thank you for stopping by yesterday; I am finding it so difficult to visit blogland because my days are filled with MEETINGS after school! AHHH! I see these photos of you painting and I certainly miss my summer when I could just get up and do what my ARTISTIC mind wanted to do! Thank you for sharing this wonderful side to your life with us! I really means a lot to us all!

    Wishing you a stress-free day my dear! Anita
