Circles

On 1/20/2017 I found on LEARN FUN FACTS and enjoyed the post

Thinking About Circles

The post with many quotes about circles inspired me to create a simple painting below.

I hope that you’ll like it.

We think of our lives as straight or not so straight roads but I believe that we often follow circles and our happiness and all emotions depend on their colors.

Against the Odds

I met somebody last spring and was so inspired that against all odds I created the unforgettable picture below.

Sorry, it is not a photo but I hope that you’ll be impressed by this extraordinary haircut and the depth of my imagination.

AGAINST THE ODDS

Life, days and nights

Last two years were rather difficult for me. For some time I lost interest in blogging and I even stopped learning painting.

Fortunately, days come after nights.

Below is my first painting of 2017.

Waves were kissing…

Yesterday night I was walking barefooted along the shore and warm gentle waves were kissing whatever they were able to reach.

After it I could not stop trying to express something that I felt. Results are below.

Do you like them? If yes what is your favorite?

What do you feel?

Is there anything you want to tell me?

Please let me know.

Thank you!

My latest paintings

Two digital paintings below I created yesterday. They are unique as I am unable to recreate them (a program I use has no tutorials and so I experiment with it until I like some results).

I ask you to look at the paintings and let me know if you like any of them and what, in your opinion, they express.

Thank you!

Two paintings

Before playing chess with my friend I photographed two paintings in his apartment (see pictures below).

I like both of them and hope that you’ll like them too.

However, I was unable to find out who is the author of the painting “Fire Within”. If any of you know it please tell me.

Three paintings (2/23/2015)

After publishing today WOMAN OF A STRONG SEX DRIVE I needed relaxation and went to play chess on the deck. However, my partner was not there.

So I worked out for some time and looked on happy people who were swimming in the Atlantic or lying in the sun on the beach.

Then I returned to my laptop and made several paintings using an editing program that often changes without any known reason. Certainly, I have little knowledge how it works today.

The paintings received by experimenting. I used the first one to produce two others.

Please let me know if you like any of them.

Are you cold?

Are you cold? Are you alone? Is it snowing wherever you are?

Let’s share this wonderful sunrise.

Then we’ll have a hearty breakfast with some laughs.

Can you drink some wine in the morning?

Oh, it’s a pity! What about cognac?

Are you sure?

Ok, ok!

Let’s go to the beach and pick up our spots in the shadows of palms.

Do you prefer a place closer to water?

We can have it too.

Did you remember to take sunscreen? Use it now. We must be careful!

Please tell me when you are ready to swim. The water is perfect!

I hope you feel warmth. I hope you are not alone any more.

Don’t you ever forget!

We love you!

Art of Konstantin Razumov

Some time ago I published a post “THE WOMAN WHO LEFT YOU”.

I explained in the post how I found paintings of Konstantin Razumov and gave a link to them.

Below is one of his paintings.

I hope that you will use the link above to read my short post, to enjoy Razumov’s paintings and a clip of music in the post.

There is also a wonderful poem in the post. It tells about spirit of beautiful women of Konstantin’s paintings. The poem is in Russian.

Here is an excerpt from it in English (! hope that my translation did not distort the spirit of the poem):

“The woman who left you will not

Remember your arms around her.

She will be older on one more loss.

But she still has her two wings.”

Stars (quotes and my painting)

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

Harriet Tubman

Love knows not distance; it hath no continent; its eyes are for the stars.

Gilbert Parker

Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love, to work, to play, and to look up at the stars.

Henry Van Dyke

For age is opportunity no less Than youth itself, though in another dress, And as the evening twilight fades away The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.

Theodore Roosevelt

He has wonderful dreams, he is walking to stars!

I hope to learn to paint too.

Express yourself?! (Part 1)

TODAY IT IS EASY!

Today is a special day!

Today is our friend’s birthday!

As usually, we’ll go to a Japanese restaurant and express ourselves in many wonderful artistic ways.

There will be speeches, poems, songs and beautiful combinations of everything the restaurant has to offer.

In the meantime to keep my appetite on the high alert I decided to express myself in paintings below.

I hope very much that you’ll like them. If not please don’t tell it to me before we return from the restaurant.

I was about to publish this post when I remembered that “Express Yourself” is a photo challenge.

So what can I say?

I always was a working girl like the one below.
