Mexico Feeling in germany








Happy Summer Blues

Yesterday, i delivered some paintings of mine to a lovely client who lives not far from me. We tried and tested several pieces on the walls of her unique attic flat and she chose 2 that she liked best. I loved her mix of rustique elements like wooden ceiling beams and terra-cotta floor tiles with modern design classics like the sienna chairs in her kitchen and flashes of bold bright colors, like the little yellow metal locker. 

The blue painting "Summer Blues", from my latest summer series looks amazing in this environment. Surprisingly, it adds a sense of both spaciousness and   playfulness and brings a mexican feel to the environment.  The "Little Faun" painting also looks really bright and happy next to her bespoke kitchen and wounded staircase.

The late summer sun made the colors dazzle and shine, and we sat for a long while in her beautiful green roofgarden, having coffee and cake with another friend, who helped hanging the paintings.

It's one of the best experiences as a painter, seeing how ones work looks in a new environment and how - if well chosen -  it transforms the whole room and brings it to life - like music.

I hope you're all having a delightful late summer weekend. Excuse my slowness in blogging at the moment, but since i'm busy putting another issue of "KidsLife" together and lots of social life going on here, time just flies. Will come visit you over the weekend though - put the kettle on!

  4. Good morning dear and great artist and friend!

    When I started to look at these photos, I thought THIS WAS YOUR HOME! But to see your art work here in her lovely flat is so refreshing! A German home filled with the American Southwest.....you have done it again. You have enchanted me with your skills and magnificent style that fits just about anywhere!

    I have been awfully busy all week. I need to figure out how to change those photos to 300dpi; i have no idea what that means, but I will find out!

    HUGS!

  7. Dear and wonderful friend! How I love this German flat done up in Mexican style! And thank you dear one, for coming by today; we have been out too enjoying the summer weather but it's so odd because the leaves are turning color and falling! We will take all the sunshine we can get before it really starts to get cold!

    Big hugs to you my dear Martina! Anita

  10. Dear Martina,
    Your paintings look amazing in that beautiful home! How wonderful that you get to see the results, a special gift indeed. :) I just got back from a visit with my family in Utah. One of my sister's friends has a gorgeous pueblo home out in the desert. Your artwork would have fit into that setting as well. Very lovely! Have a happy week, sweet friend. xox...Gloria
