Oh Frida

Oh Frida.  I admire her for her bravery, she displayed her pain and frustrations openly, she was troubled and criticised most of her life.  Such a uniquely beautiful woman. So I attempted to paint this art icon. I know this is nothing like Frida not even close, but it was fun to paint her and while I painted I read about her life in an attempt to get to know a bit about this extraordinary woman.

Ocean Mood

I believe in the ocean curing all bad moods.
I believe in the waves wiping away worries.
I believe in seashells bringing good luck.
I believe in toes in the sand grounding my soul.

I believe in the ocean curing all bad moods.
I believe in the waves wiping away worries.
I believe in seashells bringing good luck.
I believe in toes in the sand grounding my soul.

I could not have said that or put that in better words, the ocean really does cure everything for me ♥ I love staring at the horizon and this painting is going to bring me so much peace…..

Moonlight kiss

Some humans are the perfect examples of how monsters can be.

While others are angels from heaven walking all around us,

making us believe in the goodness that still remains.

The wave

I find myself staring into empty stretches of the ocean or sky. This stress produced world makes everything urgent and the ocean brings me peace and time for reflexion. It’s like a massive massage but one that makes me feel automatically happier and relaxed.

That is why I ended off this year with another painting of the ocean, a moody sky and a wave. Staring at the ocean or the sky is like poetry and it gives me energy, like a cold splash of water on my face.

The rhythm of the waves lapping on the shore restores body and mind…

I won’t finish it this year, there is still some work to be done on the sky and wave but that’s ok, it just means I will start with the same feeling of peace and tranquility and energised for the New Year. That’s my wave painting ♥

Exhale…

I am wistful for a salty kiss, sticky arms and the scent of the ocean.  For a damp towel and the foam of the white-capped waves, for my heart to beat with the ocean. I am longing for that  immense blue and longing to look into the depth and horizon and be blinded by the sun hitting the ocean.

Because I’m always dreaming of being near the sea I painted this for my bedroom, so I can lie in bed with my book and dream more pretending to be on the beach ❤
