To paint or not to paint....

difficult sometimes to stay in while the sun is out and blossoms are appearing everywhere. Open door, gentle breeze, blackbird whistling... feels nice. Doing some sketching, preparing a new canvas, time doesn't exist. And than the rain sets in.

The sisters mermaid , not yet finished.  There is something I  like about this painting in this stage.  I have to look for a way that adds to the atmosphere I want , without it becoming too sweet, smooth and detailed.  Acrylic  paint and me ; it feels like we have a long journey ahead.

Something's unfolding in my head too,
kind of origami brain....
A myriad of lines and hues,
sensual, crazy twisting or almost solemnly
And me, just the same,
greedy....greedy eyes
Jumping heart and then breathless...

Private Supermoon

On saturday, March 19th, a full Moon of rare size will rise in the east at sunset.
The last full Moon so big and close to earth occured in March 1993.

Back to painting

Some soft days and the first butterfly were a sign to put table and chairs back outside, not that it is already that warm to sit there for long but in the middaysun it felt very nice and promising.(and I like the sight of it, ofcourse)
The house is quiet again and I started painting after nearly a fortnight not touching a pencil or brush.
Thoughts are tumbling through my head,fragments of conversations, stories, moments from the past days.
I feel rather tired but I got some work done . So here is another work in progress.

Sweet visitor

The main reason for my absence here is this little guy.
He and his mother are staying with us for a couple of weeks and I'm just enjoying it.
Family and friends are coming and going and he is an admired sweetie.
Still cold outside but sun and blue skies are luring us outside now and then.
There is definitely new life in the garden :)
