Day 30

“Road in Himalayas”.  Oil on gessoed paper.
Having spent 22 days in Nepal, doing Annapurna Circuit, I accumulate a lot of photos, which are now a pale reminder of all this sublime beauty of the mountains, as well as dirt, poverty, tiredness and altitude sickness, which one tends to gladly forget at the end of the trip.

Day 8

“Around the cliff , Lombok Island”.
When I visited Lombok Island in 2007,  it was how Bali used to be probably 20-25 years ago – beautiful, wild, scenic,  not many big developments and hotels, although it already started. Wonderful place.

Today I am starting the Painting a Day Project. This is something I wanted to try since I first heard of it, which was a long time ago. So for the past couple of months, I was painting more than usual, testing the waters, seeing if it is even feasible to paint every day. I think it is. At the moment all my works are small and it is possible to finish them in one sitting.
I’ve done a few landscapes and still lives and I had a stretch of small abstracts. I have a sort of conflict in me – I love realistic pictures and I love abstracts too. (Don’t one supposed to choose one style and stick with it? Oh, well, it’s not going to happen).  I played with different mediums and different supports. The cold gloomy Parisian winter is perfect for staying inside and just paint. Until the weather improves and I can come out to try some plein air, I am sticking to abstracts, I am also turning the photographs I took on my travels into small paintings, as well as getting out fruits and veggies to paint still lives.
And the result of this month – I open my Etsy shop and put there all the paintings I have done so far. And will be adding more all the time.
