Pretty things






Have been painting outside a lot lately, and enjoy how nature and the spirit of summer flows into my work. I don't paint what i see right now, but what i feel - energies, vibrations, how one thing communicates with the other, water, air, light, stars, molecules - you see, i'm a little high on summer right now and a bit "off" - which happens, when i paint.

Here's a little peek into my home - with some new paintings in the background. The pink orchid amazes me daily with her glamour, the little plate is something my son brought from Zimbabwe recently  and the round thing is actually a beautiful candle holder i got from a friend - it makes beautiful shadows when lighted!
Have a happy weekend lovelies!  

I've listed this post on "Flowery Friday!, a Link up celebrating the beauty of flowers,initiated by the lovely Trishe. Want to play along too?

  6. Good morning wonderful one!

    What a fun several days I've had during the last week of July! It's ironic that school starts for me in 23 days and I'm barely starting to experience the fun of summer!

    How I love your art choices my friend. I am excited to see how you would incorporate Tea Rat and Rattus and my theatre into your magazine. You just say the word, and I'll be ready!!!!! HAPPY AUGUST! Anita

  12. How I love the line-up of your beautiful blue canvases on the floor and the rest of the colors in your creative space my friend! And how was your summer party? It is Sunday and time is unspooling the summer, but what a great one it has been!

    I look forward to hearing more later in the months to come about the possibility of my theatre being in your magazine!!!!! XOXOXOX

  16. Oh Martina, your comment is so validating and kind for me ! You know how I have struggled with my photography, and it is good to see how I have improved. The process is so fascinating to me because what I've been learning through poetry, I've been applying it to photography. Aren't you glad you studied art? Aren't you glad you do what you do? I am.

    Thank you for your support and guess what?I'm refurbishing my little theatre in the event you do want to use it for a little story. I'm having fun!
