Lady Butterfly

It looks like I have a 'butterfly effect'. I really enjoy painting and drawing butterflies. Also I am trying to discover what attracts me so much to them. It is maybe their elusiveness, beauty and colors. So far I feel very inspired by them. Inspired by butterflies. ' Lady Butterfly' was not planned. I had a bit hard week and I needed to paint something which could keep me strong and powerful. Lady Butterfly wings express feminine power and strength. Blue background represents ability to communicate.
It was fantastic experience to be a part of AEDM adventure and communicate through creation and art with so many beautiful, wise and talented people. I believe that many of us will still continue journey which we have just begun and we will encourage, support and share our creation together. Thank you all so much.

I have a little friend. His name is Matteo. He always reminds me about butterflies. We see each other almost every day and all those days are fulfilled with joys, adventures, appreciating small things. He reminds me about all those little details which sometimes I do not see through my adult eyes. I am very grateful for our friendship.

Lady Focaccia

Every painting or drawing has a story to tell. This is a story about Lady Focaccia. Lady Focaccia was born from greasy paper...We used to keep focaccia on the shopping list and grease from focacia went through and made a shape on a paper. It was shape of...a lady and I called it Lady Focaccia. I decided to use it for my art and I gave Lady Focaccia wing and knitting needles with wool, so she can knit her wings over and over again.

Beginings of Lady Focaccia. ( you can see original Lady Focaccia shape made from greasy mark on the paper)

I was struggling at the weekend. I was struggling with myself, with not allowing myself to rest when I felt that my body was giving up. I did not listen my body at all. I realised as always a bit to late how important is to give myself time to rest. Creation needs rest as well. I am posting today my second and last episode of ' Fish Tales'. This time it is a story about closeness, being together but individual at the same time, darkness and light, about flowing, about caring and about mother and her child. Have a happy week everyone.

Hurry up, We are dreaming

I feel that there are so many thoughts which I would like to share. It is like a stream and I cannot really stop it. I feel that I could easily write and touch so many subjects. I had quite bizarre day. I finally managed to sit down and start painting which brings  peace into my heart. I hurt today my hand. The same one which I badly hurt 7 months ago. All my fears came back in one short moment of time, all not nice memories. But I thought I cannot give up now, so I sat to meditate and then I started to paint. I started to paint water and immediately felt more peaceful and calm. Art is good therapy.  My hand is still sore but my mind and my heart feel so much better.
Also it has been a week since I started blogging. First thought which comes to me is gratitude for all those who shared their time with me and visited my page and left comments. Thank you for all your comments. Some of them made me think and were inspiration for my posts. Thank you for it. It was pleasure and fantastic adventure to visit other blogs and arty websites. It is beautiful that we are all different, that we all have will and need to create. I really believe we make world better place because of that. Special thanks to for very wise comment. Special thanks to Leah for gathering us together, maybe without her we all would not have met.
I think it is beautiful and important to support each other in a loving and caring way.It is very important to be open and respectful with others. There is enough of criticism in the world which we live already. I believe we have to start with ourselves and be kind and lovable not only for others but specially for ourselves. Just like Gandhi said: 'Be the change'.

 I was writing a card to my friend today. I wrote her name on the envelope and could not stop myself and started to doodle. That is an effect. Little, spontaneous creation.

Final doodle

 p.s. The tittle for the post comes from  music album which accompanied me with my watery paintings. My 'Fish Tales' are nearly finished.

Parallel world

It is Saturday morning. Beautiful, sunny and...cold morning in Scotland. I have just started painting my second tale about fish and probably it will be my last underwater journey for a while. I am listening beautiful music which takes me deep, deep underwater, where is only me and my fish. I am swimming, I am creating, I am in parallel world. I am so pleased and grateful to be able and have opportunity to share that state of my mind. Thank you. Also just before starting my painting I did quickly 15 minutes sketch of myself to warm up. I do those sketches from time to time to see how much I change and develop. It is like drawing memories. Sometimes I feel that all my works are constantly drawing memories of life.

Fish Tale

I am still thinking about my previous post. I am thinking about how strong and powerful can be art language. Without words, mostly through images, through our art we are able to travel. We are able to reach somebody from another side of the world. More than that, we are able to have influences on that person, make her or him happy, sad, surprised etc. through our art.
I finished my other watery picture. I called it ' Fish Tale' and story of that picture has got many meanings. Like every story is a tale. A tale about journey, about communication, about flowing with life, about wisdom.

I have started my water pictures. I have started my underwater journey some time ago. When I started I noticed synchronicity with little events in my life. I watched the movie " Rust and Bone", I discovered music full of watery sounds,  I found beautiful blue pictures and finally I made first sketch. A first seed was planted. I love process of creation. That time when process is the most important, when creating is like a meditation, when I completely forget about final effect. No criticism, no expectations, just creation and just me.
 Possibility of sharing our works with others and being inspiration for each other creates beautiful connection between all of us. We use art language. We communicate through our art works without words. Thank you for sharing and thank you for inspiring me. Thank you life. Thank you.

Welcome. I believe that life is a journey of an endless creation. We create our lives every day. We create feelings and reactions, thoughts and images, memories, experiences and miracles. I create this blog to remember and share with others why, when and what I create.
I also believe that one of the most important things in life is to create with love.

 I made these two works to remember flowers which I got from my partner. When I started to paint them other images and thoughts started to appear. These were thoughts and images about us, life, journey, peacefulness and delicacy.
