drawing challenge 181: C A L M

the theme of this week is chosen by Veronica
please visit her blog for the link to the other participants

what C A L M me is
his hand in mine as i fall asleep
reading books
a long walk in the woods
the little body of Splinter (sweet memories)
and the sea
always the sea....
the sound of breaking waves
the heartbeaut of mother earth

linen, acrylic paint and a palette knife
the making is CALMing and soothing

wat mij kalmeert is
zijn hand in de mijne als ik in slaap val
boeken lezen
een lange wandeling in het bos
het lichaampje van Splinter (zoete herinneringen ;^)))
en de zee
altijd de zee ....
het geluid van de brekende golven
de hartslag van moeder aarde

linnen, acrylverf en een paletmes
het maken is kalmerend en rustgevend

  1. Lovely! I've been looking at my aunt's palette knives lately an wondering if I'd like to incorporate using them into a painting. Those textures seem very satisfying. You've given me inspiration to try ear Patrice. :D

  2. That is beautiful! I love the colors and even more so the texture. Makes me want to feel the waves! Living near the ocean is definitely wonderful and always calming to me! xoxo

  4. The sea and most of the things you mentioned are very calming to me, too! Wonderful texture and layers! Thanks for sharing!

  5. The sea always the sea, ja, dearest Patrice,
    the heartbeat of mother earth, her breath. The act of painting the sea and the sky, I can imagine, is very calming. And your painting is mooi!
