Heavenly Morning

Today, I woke up around 6a.m. and was amazed by this beautiful, heavenly light in my room. It felt like everything was covered with gold. I had to take a picture of it and I'm so glad I did. Here is one of my paintings from Heaven.

Inspiration and Stories

I decided that I’m going to start writing. It will be different stories about each of my illustrations that will bring them to life in words. It might be abstract and surreal or dreamy and romantic. I might also describe my feelings while I was creating it.

Here is my first story:

French Riviera – Cote d’Azur is a very special place for me. I created this painting immediately following my first trip to Nice, France. I admired the abundance of Mimosa flowers both surrounding Nice and within the city limits. Its perfume filled every caffe and boutique, it was heavenly. The sweetness of the French pastries and Italian cappuccino highlighted this celebration of life.

Dreams of France

Today I feel like indulging macarons. There is something so beautiful in these treats, something so special. It feels as if they are always ready for a celebration.
I want to paint my nails with different colours of the summer, climb on the Eifel Tower and sing “Plus je t’embrasse” up high.  I miss France.

These beautiful photos have been taken by the beautiful Making Magique

So glad it's a Saturday.

I'm so happy that today is a Saturday, a day when I can completely relax and celebrate every moment. I can drink my favourite tea with french roses, wear pajamas and paint. It's a special day, it's a treat :)

I'm very inspired by St. Jean Cap Ferrat in French Riviera... this place is like paradise on Earth. This week, I've been browsing photos of beautiful villas and South of France. Have a look at these beautiful pictures. I want to express this beauty in my newest painting that I started last week. I hope to finish it this weekend.
