Aux Champs d'Elysees...

It is Saturday and it makes me so happy.  Today, I painted for the entire day. I was so inspired by this autumn breeze from the lake, I could feel this beauty in the air. It's Champs d'Elysées. This place is absolutely magic and beautiful. It is filled with luxury and beauty. Fall is just around the corner and I hope to be able to go to Paris during this trip!

You can see gorgeous and elegant people walking, ladies with fashionable hats and gentleman with good manners... This is one of the beautiful photos by Bardot in Blue

You can see flowers everywhere in Paris...

My upcoming trip to France!

I'm now sitting in the airport waiting for my flight to Richmond. My heart overflows with joy when I think that in a month, I'll be sitting in the same airport but flying to Nice, France. I cannot wait to smell the perfume of French Riviera, to indulge its charm and to fill my soul with inspiration and beauty.

It seems like my last trip to Nice was so long time ago... but when I close my eyes, I can see this place in its splendour and charm, as if I'm there.

On my first day, I am planning on buying a lot of roses, I love roses, there is something so unique and special about them. It is going to be a huge celebration of my return. I might buy a good camera before my trip so that I could take lots of breathtaking pictures.

This place is absolutely unique and heartwarming. I like everything about it.

Here is my new painting - San Jean Cap Ferrat dreams... I wanted to express my joy and happiness being in French Riviera. This place inspires me so much! I understand many artists who moved there like Picasso, Chagall, Matisse, etc. They moved there because of this beautiful colour and light. I dream to move there too, I feel that I'm going to paint so many more beautiful paintings while being inspired and captured by love and peace. 

About the painting:Lilacs are filled with tenderness and spring atmosphere. These flowers are very special and unique. I feel like indulging a glass of Monbozilliac white wine on my beautiful terrace in San Jean Cap Ferrat overlooking the sea. Dream and Inspire, inhale beauty and exhale love and peace.

I can feel inspiration all around me just by looking at this beautiful landscape, how it is illuminating peace and love. This lavender sky looks so royal and majestic, romantic and pure, relaxing and tender; I feel that I'm going to use this landscape for my next painting.

Giving gifts is a blessing

I’m fascinated by how beautiful and charming gifts can be and how much joy and happiness they can bring. Gifts and presents create this special world of celebration and beauty in our lives. We associate gifts with events that are so special and dear to us. I’ve been thinking about it and realized that we can create these moments in our everyday, bring this magic of giving back without waiting for holidays. Let’s celebrate every moment in our lives by giving gifts to special people around us and ourselves.
