Friday art: Hydrangeas in winter

A recent tryptich on canvas  fresh from my studio. It combines winter fog and caribean blue and green with one of my fave flowers: Hydrangeas. To me they are beautiful in every^stage of their life - just like a real good woman - ha ha! 
Have you scheduled  anything nice yet for your weekend? I'm planning on a visit to a real gorgeous spa with my hubby, to just let go and relax - and make the best of a November, that turned out really grey here in Germany.

Paintings: Martina Voigt-Schmid


  1. That's gorgeous doll and I agree, Hydrangeas are beautiful all year round :)) Your painting is wonderful. I hope you have a great time at the spa, sounds fun :)) Happy Friday Xx

  2. Oh Martina! I LOVE YOUR ANALOGY of hydrangeas (my favorite flower too!) to a good woman in ALL STAGES OF HER LIFE! That is BRILLIANT and so is your beautiful rendition of these great beauties! Your quote for the day is outstanding and art DOES illuminate what is hidden in the fog of daily life! BRAVO MY DEAR! My first art show is tomorrow and I am not even ready. I have my art objects, but somehow I missed out on getting prepared to take payments with the new apps available for transactions! OH WHAT A FOOL I have been for not looking into this further! Wish me luck! Anita

  3. It's lovely! I like the contrast of the bluey background and the flowers. :) I'm going to London for the weekend to visit my daughter and her family. Have a lovely Spa time Martina! :)

  13. DEAR HEART! Yes, YES, I had my first art show and it was fun. I only made three sales, but I am learning. I learned that my style is UNUSUAL around HERE. I captivated some people, then some people walked past...typical. But there is much to learn and I am willing to learn it, however, I need to make some money while learning this lesson!!!!!!!!!!!!

    MUCH LOVE to you on this Sunday! Anita

  14. Gorgeous painting Martina!

    You use happy colors : )
