Color on a rainy November day

Why is it that when life is gearing up to be very busy, all I suddenly want to do is paint?!?
Oh well, it's ok with me, especially when the result is such an intense wolf face! Love it!! He looks straight into my soul it seems.
This following week is going to be busy and so much fun. We are getting ready for Thanksgiving, my very favorite american holiday and then for family coming to visit.
And the week after we are all leaving together to cruise the Caribbean for a while. I can't wait!! But it's still more than week before that happens and there's much to do to get the house ready for our house/pet sitter.
And there's still more to paint! I have another one in the works as I'm writing this. I might even get it finished today... The next one is less intense and more playful again.
And here...drumroll please...are my new business cards! I love them!! These are from and they do such a great job.

I leave you with a wish for a color-filled week for you! If you celebrate Thanksgiving, enjoy this time of family, friends and abundant food. And if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving, still enjoy your family, friends and abundant food.

With much love and gratitude,



  1. I'm loving seeing the wolf come alive! Those cards are wonderful works of art in themselves. Happy Thanksgiving! You will have a wonderful trip and probably be itching to hit the paint the minute you get back!

  2. Wow, the colours are amazing! Love it! And your Moo-cards are so beautiful! Sounds like you'll be enjoying some good times in the coming weeks! Happy thanksgiving!

  3. Oh my goodness....this is so good I could cry!! It has affected me so much! Silke you amaze me!! I love it so much the colour, the eyes!! Thankfully you listen when the spirit moves you!! I can not believe what an amazing turn your art has taken this last year!! You should have some of these images made up at Vistaprint...into greeting cards!! It's easy but look for good deals and get the gloss with better paper... these are so incredible!! Have a great trip!
    Thanks for sharing these!! Love the moo cards too!!

    Hugs Giggles

  4. Silke, your paintings are wonderful - so filled with color and meaning. They make me happy.
    I hope your Thanksgiving will be joyful and blessed. Enjoy.

  5. Intense sure is the right word for that wolf's face - wow!!
    Your business cards look great; is the format different from "normal" business cards? It looks like it on the picture but I am not sure.

    Like you just want to paint when life gets very busy, I sometimes have that with writing. When I have absolutely no time at all (and sometimes not the occasion, either) to write, I have the best ideas for blog posts or other writing.

  6. Beautiful painting Silke, really striking. The MOO cards are wonderful, too. Valerie

  7. The wolf is one of your best paintings yet!! Your upcoming adventures sound like so much fun! and if you ever need a house/pet sitter again, I'm available!!

  8. On this rainy Maine day, your gorgeous colors & images are bringing me a lot of pleasure! Happy Favorite Holiday to you all!

  9. I love your vibrant colors! Wolf eyes are wonderful too.
