Margaret - new painting

Art is dominating my life at the moment and I'm loving it! This is one of those times when everything just flows and I am going with it.
I'm rediscovering my love for painting on collaged and textured surfaces. I guess I'm remembering what I loved most when I first started painting.
11 x 14 inch mixed media painting
And here's the next painting I started. I can already see it finished in my mind. But usually it looks very different from that internal image when it's done... somehow my art is still always a surprise to me.
Thank you all for your kind comments on my blog! I always love it when you visit!! And I try to visit as many of you as I can each day. Your blogs always inspire me!!

P.S. I'm just giving these girls names that come to mind as I work on them. The images aren't actually based on anyone I know...


  1. Hi Silke.
    You sound happy with art dominating your life right now. It dominates my thoughts but I can't find the time to put it out there. ~sigh~
    Margaret is very nice ~ you can see she is deep in thought. I love the background on the painting you are just starting.
    Happy day!!

  2. OMG silke! Your progress with your women is incredible. The detail and temperament is so advanced

    You've made it, girl. Wear the title proudly: you is an artist!

  4. I like both of these pieces very much. Can't wait to see what you do with the 2nd one.

    Keep going with the flow! It's workin' for ya!

  5. Dearest Silke - it's an age since I commented but I always read & love your posts and art so much. I especially connect with Margaret for some reason...the colours and serenity just spoke to me! Hoping you are well and sending much love from the frosty UK xoxo Rachel
