Carlotta ~ New Painting

With my last painting, I was sort of afraid that it was a one-time deal, but it seems that my style truly is changing quite a bit.
And I am so enjoying it!
It feels entirely intuitive and that's how I like to paint best.
That's when time flies and hours feel like minutes and I'm totally present in the moment.
And afterwards totally covered with paint...
12 x 24 inch acrylic painting

Available in my Etsy Shop.

I hope you all are having a wonderful week!! And thank you for your visits and comments - they always make my day!! 


  1. Je sens que votre Carlota vous a rendu heureuse... Elle se révèle majestueuse...
    Gros bisous

  2. Liebe Silke,

    ein gelungenes Meisterwerk.

  3. Oh Silke!! Love!! I see you just expanding!! Great work with this one!!

    PS. . . I gave you a shout out on my blog for Monday's post! It was a post about short hair! ;) Hope you check it out when you get a chance!

  4. Silke, your art is developing in such amazing ways! Wow. Love the direction you are taking...

  5. That is the definition of magic to me- when time stands still, the paint brush is busy, and the hands(sometimes everything) is painty. She looks fabulous- your joy shows in the painting! Happy PPF!

  6. Beautiful work. I love the contrast of the loose and free background with the smooth and carefully painted face.

  7. Loving Carlotta with her beautiful background. Am sure she has a story to tell. Happy PPF, Annette x

  8. Oh, I really love what I am seeing here. Beautiful work. And yes, isn't it grand when hours fly by while in the studio. Wonderful artwork. Happy PPF

  17. She is very striking, Silke. I love her penetrating gaze and her cascading hair! I also love the free-form style background.
