to paint keeps me sane

and probably the naptime of my 5 month old too…

It is one of the most challanging times in my live, phisically. I now know why sleep depreviation is a method of torture…
It is a good thing that nature made baby so irresistible cute. You just can not be mad at them even you do not get sleep in a row over a time periode of five month.

The other thing which kDSC_0458eeps me going is to paint. I am surprised myselfe, that insted of laying down trying to sleep while she is sleeping, it helps me more to sit down and put my brushes into the wet paint, covering a canvas.
I know that I did mention befor I had my Baby, that painting is like meditating just on your feet, today it reached a whole new level of truth for me…

One more week to go befor I need to have everything ready for my exhibition…

Gone with the wind

Yesterday afternoon the wind started to pick up and by the time we tried to fall asleep it was a good size storm with gusts up to 50 mph. It is quite unsettling to be creative in a spot where … Continue reading

Not always so

It’s the third day being in Patmos, my brushes and canvases are resting unused in my bag. Live has it’s own ways, – not always according to plan and not always so…

The morning time could be my time to paint, but as it turns out, the balcony was to hot and the beautiful, idyllic spot across the cove is to windy. My fighter nature seems to be on vacation and instead of searching for a different spot it is leaving me alone to rest in the lethargy of my teenage nice who sleeps in till 11:00.

Nevertheless I teak in all the beauty I can, driving on a Vespa with my baggage (teenager with a cold and chronic tiredness) across the island. Due to the time difference between the ages we are forced to hike in the middle of the day with a murdering heat in our neck, but get rewarded with the uniqueness of a stunning beach.

For me it is heaven to spend most of the time in the turquoise warm crystal clear water – I am happy to enjoy it and know that the painting will happen.
So for now, for these vacations, the most important thing is to stay in the presents, being happy about the nice company, the interesting conversations and the comfort of having family around.
