These days-


Making bread in the morning- It takes me fifteen minutes-

But then, the simplest of meals becomes something quite special-

Meanwhile, I am working my way through one hundred miniatures-

Which didn't start abstract, but abstraction pushed it's way in-

I can't rest, can I?
My mind is in a knot-
and I am slowly and carefully
trying to turn the maze into a river-
Flow-
breathe-
smell rosemary...
there it is-
I have learned to bake bread, haven't I?
 I added some rosemary to my loaf this morning-
an experiment that seems will turn out just fine-
Yes, it will.
All will turn out just fine.
I trust-

Hugs-

Annamaria I too trust it will turn out just fine for you. I like how you started to do 100 small paintings. I look forward to see more! I hope you'll feel better ... x

Yes dear Annamaria,just like that bread, everything will turn out fine, your abstracts are always intriguing me, they are strong, they are somehow spacious, there is room to enter them and get lost in a wonderful world, take care, xx

The simple loaf can not be beat, the egg is a miracle in itself, your paintings are perfectly absorbing and intriguing.

I confess, I LOVE your symbolic style of painting and am so excited to see more of it coming from you! Sometimes when I need to sooth my soul, I peek at your sold items on your etsy site to look at your images. Your images really speak to me--the colors, the true lines, the shapes, the bits of white paper, the placement and relationship of objects. I aspire to paint like that.
