So, to jump off from that last post – here is something FUN.
I have been body-deep in the painting lately. I say that, because the stuff is splattered all over me. Zsolt keeps finding more paint on my neck and face . . . on on our living room furniture . . . sink . . . back splash . . .
Anyhow, it’s good fun and a wonderful distraction from other aspects of life. There’s an element of disconnection, follow by some moments of emotional processing, and then back to disconnection and process. Every time I sit down to paint, I never know what will happen. Every time I find myself surprised. Sometimes frustrated. But often quite satisfied. It’s a learning process to say the least.
And let’s face it – I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t set up a website for my better bits of art. So I have taken my love of website building and am experimenting with Etsy. After suggesting a friend give it a go with her artwork, I decided to try it myself. After all – there is literally nothing to lose.
Here it is – and maybe I’ll continue, and maybe I’ll abandon it entirely. Either way, it has been great fun. Fun, fun, fun. And healing, and fun.
(Here’s a mental picture. Zsolt builds his Lego models while I paint in my sunny corner. This, to me, is a form of everyday bliss.)

Your paintings are so cute!! I signed up for an intuitive painting e-course a couple of years ago, but only really got started this year, because I’ve been stuck at home (I had brain mets this year, which affected my balance) – and yes, it’s fun, and frustrating at times, and very healing. I’ve been trying to do larger paintings, up to A3, but I really like the idea of miniatures. You’re so brave, splattering paint like that!! I remember saying to a friend a while ago that I really fancy getting some big pots of emulsion paint, and hurling the paint at a huge canvas on the wall – so far I’ve not found anywhere that will let me do that, though! 😉
I love that you are loving painting so much. I also love that adorable little easel – the staging for your photos is also AMAZING. ❤
These mini paintings are cool. One can stare into them and come up with many different thoughts and moods. Nice texture and flow.
