I have been meaning to paint something scenic and “nice” for a while, and been thinking up ideas/concept in my head. So one day last week in my half awake state  this image popped into my head…

I think I have  read somewhere before where a brain is most creative at a sleepy state. I think that’s true! (I also have a lot of weird dreams which I decided is a good idea not to pursue any further…)

I have been busy moving houses in the last few days so I have been a tat bit stressed.  But I am VERY happy to finally move to London and fingers crossed something exciting will happen! Also hope it will give me more inspirations for my paintings.

So this is a smaller painting, and it was difficult at first for me to paint the clouds, I actually start over twice on the canvas because I was not happy with the cartoony style I was going for at first. After some practice and lots of blue paint later, I found the way to make the clouds looks fluffy is by wetting the canvas with water and let the colour spread out itself. I am so happy with the way it turned out. It’s like another small challenge has been accomplished when it comes to my painting skills!

I think this painting summerised  the ideal “feeling” when I want to escape everyday stress and feel a moment of calm and peace. I love mother nature and there are moments in my life where I feel so blessed with not a worry or care in the world (one of them moments was sailing at night in the Mediterranean sea). So maybe the more stressed out I am, the happier my paintings? 😛

Well hope you like this painting, if you would like to purchase this original painting (£40), please feel free to get in touch or use the paypal button below. Any thoughts and feed back are most welcome!
