inlove with everything beautiful

100 days of watercolor

I love watercolors and I felt that i never had the … what? the drive? I don’t know what, the push maybe, to start painting actually in watercolors. I was just drooling over beautiful painting I saw here and there.

So here it is, a journey of 100 days of watercoloring. (is this a verb?)



100 days of watercolor begun on 25th March 2017


DAY 1 – the bunny. i feel that it looks a bit evil :))

All the love to you!


Hannah – an angel who loves winter Original painting


Just finished last night and my friend told me she looks exactly like her daughter.

So, I named her Hannah.

Hannah loves winter and her red scarf.

She loves the snowflakes floating all around like fulfilled wishes.

I was having an awfully bad day (brought on by a big white envelope) which felt like one of the worse days in the last 10 years (12 years to be more precise)

I took a new canvas, the black color and the big brush. I felt like making it all black; taking it out of my heart and spreading it all onto the canvas.

Then, I just stepped away from it to feel the feelings.

Feelings of hope emerged from deep down inside and they felt like gold and bright white.

“Everything will be alright” I kept telling myself. “It will all be good” “hang on”

I was pleading to God for help. feelings of gratitude that He’s got my back, as always.

It is another rough road I have to walk on and get over with.

My finger with a considerable amount of white paste started frantically drawing roses. Splashes of hope . Splashes of golden light.

It will all be good. We’ve got this.

“We” because I know I am not alone.

This painting is a constant reminder that even if it feels like your world is falling apart,

YOU are never alone.
