Monday Love: White Hot!

A new fashion portrait of my gorgeous artist friend Barbara von Enger,  who knows how to ad the WOW-factor to everything she's wearing.  When i last met her in town, she wore a little A-Line white dress under a bright red trench. along with beautiful red lips - and looked so fresh and cheerful. We visited our favorite Vintage-shop together and she found these earrings you see in the sketch - just perfect for summer! 
I wish you a bright and happy start to your week and to the lovely month of July!

Flower bomb

I must have flowers, always and always ...
This picture just captures the abundance and wonderful spirit of summer - and - since this last weekend held the solistice and summer has now officially started, i hope you all had a great start into this wonderful season! As luck would have it, my Birthday falls on to the summer solstice and this year we celebrated here with a family reunion and a party with friends in the evening, Grace to this, my house is now filled with flowers - and - back to the SPARKLING theme - that really makes me sparkle!
I wish you a great start - let's make the best of June! Which flower do you love best?

Little Garden Painting

Summer set lip to earth’s bosom bare,
And left the flushed print in a poppy there.

Francis Thompson

Something that came to me, while i was painting outside, in a soft summer breeze. It's a small painting 30 x 40 cm, mixed media on canvas - one of a series of 3. Hope you enjoy June so far - for me, it should be 3 times as long! This coming weekend brings the summer solstice and the longest night of the year. And it falls on a saturday - anything planned yet to celebrate?

Happy weekend flowers! And hurry up to make the best of your weekend! Wait a moment:Isn't the weekend ll about slowing down? Just find your own tempo and go with it - no matter where you go!

The day kind of overwhelmed me with a can of Espresso exploding on my stove and covering the whole kitchen in Coffee! This is why i fell from my pink cloud and have keep this post really short and simple - much cleaning to do!

Ocean feeling

Eine neue Serie von Bildern in BLAU, die mir das Gefühl geben, im Ozean zu schwimmen, zu schnorcheln, im Wasser zu spielen und diese wundersame Welt der Meere zu erleben - was Farbe alles kann! Hoffe, Ihr habt einen wunderbaren Start in die neue Woche!

A new series of canvas paintings in BLUE, celebrating the ocean and the healing energy of the water. We had wonderful summer weather over this long weekend and i took my colors outside, which felt wonderful- I also had a lovely friend visiting, a trip to town, a delightful party to go too and a lot of wonderful food to eat. What have you been up to my lovelies?

Monday Love: Scarlet Pink!

Roses are red my love!

Some bits of vibrant color from my weekend - some of my red paintings i got back from a recent exhibition, lots of roses in different shades of red, some from out of our garden, some given to me as a present by my lovely painter friend Sabina Wörner, who shares my love for Scarlet & Pink.

Scarlet Pink is also the name of a fabulous new magazine, celebrating artists and creative living. Some of my dearest blogfriends like Anita and Victoria are amongst their contributors, and i'm so exited to be one of the featured artists for the upcoming summer issue. 
Will keep you posted when it gets published.

Have a super start to your week my lovelies, my your days be sprinkled in rose petals and garnished with laughter!

P.S.: Regarding the riddle in my dog poster: The dog not listed under it's real name was the Chinese crested dog. i put it under the name of !Quastl" - because of the shape of it's tail ;)
