Painting Summer



I want freedom for the full expression of my personality.

Ghandi

Little garden painting catches the golden specs of the late afternoon sun - playing on the leaves, illuminating little things flying about in the air, enhancing the rich shadows beneath dark green leaves. Actually, when i was painting, i didn't think anything at all, but just let my hands and imagination play - while being outside - in the garden.
It's late summer here now with hazy mornings and sunny afternoons, mellow, sweet, like a ripe yellow apple or apricot. What do you like most about September?

  2. Brilliant Martina - I love how you describe your days there and the painting reflects all that you say. I like the fact that, in India, we get to see more of sunshine in September and less of the rains. :)

  4. OH THIS IS GOOD! Martina, the joy and freedom you have in your hands is inspiring. Somehow however, when I let my hands go with a paint brush, I don't get the same results as you do!!!!!!

    The colors here express late summer PERFECTLY with the muted yellows and pinks - and what do I like most about September? Though I love school, it's not going back that I love the most, but rather the EARLY MORNING when I awake to a bearable chill and bask in the silence before I go to work. That silence is broken with yet another silent show of a PINK and YELLOW SUNRISE. I just noticed last week around the first of September, how more pink the sunrise is.

    You captured my September perfectly. HUGS!
