Friday art: Sunshine and snow

Sunshine and snow, 
spring dancing with winter, waltzing over the fields and having some fun together, icy but lovely. Beautiful light in the room is so good for painting - and for anything else. Isn't it stunning, how our mood changes with the light? At least mine does ;)

We don't have snow here today, but lovely, almost springlike sunshine. I've put the christmas-deco away, exept fo some fairy lights, and will buy some fresh flowers tomorrow. How did your new year start so far? For me, it was a mix of being quite busy and feeling quite tired - i look forward to a relaxed weekend and wish you a bright and cheerful time ahead!

  1. Hello Martina, New Year started well. Hope everything falls in place through out the year.

  2. Have a nice weekend from spring !!..hahahahhah!!...

  3. Hello and Happy New Year dear Martina!
    Wishing you much love and creativity!
    What lovely paintings...I really like how the snow is in those fluffy circles. Beautiful.
    It has been very spring-like here, which is so unusual. We are normally in a foot or so of snow around here! But I am loving it, and it's making me pine for Spring! I'm not one to rush time, though..trying to enjoy the moment!
    Wishing you a beautiful weekend,
    - Irina

  7. Oh so pretty! All of it!
    It is very springlike here as well. No jacket needed today!

  8. First of all, I love the pictures of the flowers and the paintings you've shared. The colors are some of my favorites. We had snow for about 3 days and it has melted--it's actually 50 degrees here in Wisconsin--very strange for January for sure! The year has started a bit slowly for me to be honest--having a hard time getting in the groove after being off work for a week. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures.

    My precious friend, thank you for your visit. I was out all day yesterday attending a funeral and then coming home to PROCESS it all.

    I wish you a HAPPY and HEALTHY week without COLDS AND EXHAUSTION!!!! It is still very early here, and so now, I must work on my blog post! I am two days BEHIND!!!!!!

    BIG HUGS TO YOU, Anita

  17. Hello sweet friend. Thank you for visiting this morning. I am exhausted emotionally from having said goodbye to a colleague whose LIFE CELEBRATION yesterday gently meshed with what Ruben shared on his blog post. Life is precious and I think we all know that, but having seen former students yesterday, hearing their parents whisper to us teachers that we were their favorite teachers and then to hear how my colleague touched all his students just was too overwhelming for me. I cannot think straight. I can only muse on the reality of THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT that I hope you were able to view on Ruben's blog. Fairy dust? Fairy wings? Perhaps. Because what we do and say does travel and blow through the winds of life. May your bright light reach heights unimaginable dearest friend. Anita
