Friday art: Franz Kline

Happy weekeend lovelies, how's your summer going?  I do enjoy to be outside a lot and paint out on the terrace,, whenever i can. Currently i'm inspired by bold black brushstrokes by american painter Franz Kline. His work is very male i find and it shows a lot of energy and powerful expression - a trust in the life of a painting that i want to achieve as well - even though my own style is different. 
Hope you'll have a lovely time ahead - am sending you sunshine!


  1. This is such an important message for me today, Martina....the art/writing journey is not for the weak of mind or heart, but for those who are willing to take the next step: BEING BRAVE to destroy drafts, first impressions, and like Pollack says here, to allow the piece to "...have a life of its own!"

    My dear, I had trouble getting into the internet this morning, but will answer that Q and A now! MERCI MON AMIE, and have a terrific weekend! Anita

  5. Hi Martina!

    I am always intrigued by art! I love seeing what other people come up with in using their artistic talents. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

  6. Hi Martina,
    I wish the weather would permit me to paint on my porch... I love being outside.. Unfortunately, this summer has not allowed much ~outside~ work of any sort...
    I am content to create inside with the AC on...
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

  7. This painting is certainly very bold and masculine and it really looks great in the beautiful room! Painting outside on the porch sounds wonderful to me. I have been so busy this summer sewing for my son's wedding next week, but after that some porch sitting is in my future! Enjoy! xo Karen

  8. Wonderful, thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week ahead too!

  9. This is beautiful...I love the quote as well, true words. I hope your weekend was bliss doll and your new week will be too :) xx

  10. The black brush stroke painting looks like a sudden outburst of powerful expression. I could totally relate to what you said - it seems to be transmitting a lot of energy! Hope you are having a great time on the terrace, Martina, can't wait to see your paintings - you know, I absolutely adore your work!
