Original charcoal big drawings




Some days I just want to go to my studio table and work with my simplest materials, charcoal, watercolor and white paint. Simplicity gives me a sense of space and really smooth my mind while I move my pencil through the page and breath deeply, I allow myself to enjoy the moment of creation.
It feels so good :)






My kids are on vacations, so I will slow down and enjoy their presence in the house and have fun ;)

Next week you can count with one more blog post, showing my new fairy calendar for 2016 and today I will announce the winner for the spot on the Enchanted class yehheiiii!!!!

Wishing you a wonderful day

God and creativity

Home - painting

I am feeling different when I paint and in some way, the result of the paintings, are different as well.
I am in a time that I want to partnership with the Source, that I know is always available for me, so I ask to be guided on my creative process. I ask for inspiration and that I can allow to paint with the essence of what I really am.


When I start painting, I never know what I am going to do, I just start and allow things to come to me.
I really love not to know, I love the surprise and bealiving I am painting what is needed to be painted.


It's a ride to my inner world and my paintbrush and paints do the magic. I just have to listen, to let go and to allow. 
I think the creative process is a life instrument, that help us to trust more, to listen more, to be what you need to be, more. You and the source, God , divine wisdom together in a creative moment, what a joy!


Painting is powerful tool, helping me along the way to express what sometimes any words can say, just feel. To be able to express these feeling in some way, is like doing a metamorphosis, to transform and deal with your issues, fears, wishes and dreams. So powerful, that a quality creative time, always shifts my energy in a positive way and helps to manifest the best in me.


May source the source be with you ;)
