Happy Easter!


Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.
S.D. Gordon

Fröhliche Ostern Ihr Lieben! Ein kleiner Gruß aus meinem Atelier, wo ich zur Zeit in goldenen Gelbtönen schwelge. Gestern, als ich die Fotos aufgenommen habe ist mir aufgefallen, dass ich für unseren Osterstrauss genau die gleichen Farben ausgesucht hatte, die sich auf meiner Palette finden - gelb, schwarz, pink und ein bisschen blau und orange. Sogar das pink meiner Bluse passt zu diesem Mix! 

Für das Bild von mir habe ich die "YouCamPerfect"t-App auf dem i-pad ausprobiert - und finde sie super! Sie wirft ein schmeichelhaftes Licht auf den Teint, das Fältchen und Hautunreinheiten einfach überstrahlt. Frau sieht aus wie frisch aus dem Ei gepellt und wie nach der Frühjahrskur, die sie in diesem Jahr (in meinem Fall) noch gar nicht begonnen hat ;)

Wir verbringen Ostern in diesem Jahr ganz entspannt - lange Familien-Frühstücke und Brunches, ein Flohmarkt-Bummel, ein Spaziergang am Rhein entlang - mal schauen, was das launische Aprilwetter alles zulässt!

Was sind Eure Pläne?

Happy easter from my studio flowers! Am painting away in shades of golden yellow and dashes of pink and yesterday, when i took these pix, i realized, that instinctively, i chose the same color scheme for our easter bouquet and even for my top!

For the picture of me i played a bit with the "YouCamPerfect" App for i-pad and must say i really love it! It makes the skin look beautiful and smooth- small wrinkles and imperfections just don't show and you look like after the spring cleanse even if - like in my case - you haven't even started on it.

The weather is really moody here, strong winds that blow cold rain showers, flower-petals and occasional specs of sunlight in our faces. We'll have a relaxed easter-weekend this year, with long and lazy family breakfasts and brunches, a walk over the flea-market, maybe visiting an art exhibition or a walk alongside the river.

What are your plans for the holidays?

  6. My dearest Martina, your new post did not come up on my blogroll yesterday, but here you are! I AM SO IMPRESSED with this app and how colorful both your art and YOU, YOU LOOK! What a wonderful surprise to see your lovely image here, so bright with spring promise!

    I have been on spring break all week. What a joy it has been to enjoy the sunrays coming into my home, but like you, our weather has been very capricious. One day it was 40+F degrees, then Thursday it was 82F. But for the last two days, we've had high winds are well. We must be blowing them over to you!

    I hope your Easter will be a bright and happy one my friend. You are just so beautiful! Anita
