Monday Love: Art vitamins!

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes.  Art is knowing which ones to keep.  
Scott Adams

Some  vitamins are always a good thing, right? And aren't they so much prettier and yummier in form of fruit than of pills? To me, fruits are so inspiring in their combined force of beautiful shape and color, good smell and even better taste, so, before eating, i decided to paint them. And don't you think, something pretty to look at is healthy as well? Some new little paintings on canvas, fresh from my studio, with collaged bits of pretty vintage papers and maps. Have a splendid start to your week!

  1. Gorgeous painting!! I think fruits are better than any pills. The colour and taste and smell, they revive all of the senses!! We could eat lots of fruit in my house! I hope you have a wonderful day and week :) x

  2. Martina....these are DIVINE! You totally bring LIFE to your art and I love that quote.....creativity is one thing, but ART....that is using wisdom. "FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS BUT TAKE YOUR BRAIN WITH YOU!" So in art, one must think and analyze and decide. Excellent thought.
