gifts to my parents…

Sometimes when I need to do something without thinking, I paint… with no idea of what will come up…
Sometimes I like the result by myself. My parents like my paintings and therefore they get them, to have them in their home.
I don’t see this as “art”… it’s just something I have to do, to clean my mind and get new ideas of other things in my jewellery world.





May be it’s art in some way, I have study in different art schools for 8 years and I have a master of fine arts in applied arts and crafts degree, so I think I handle colour and shape in a “good” way and I like to experiment a little or a lot…

Why I see it as “no art” is that I don’t have any attention with it, any thoughts about what I will tell, or idea behind it… When I work with jewellery, enamel or other forms/material that I call art, I always have a story and idea of something to say, to get some kind of focus on… But in this case I just do, without ideas of what’s coming up; it will be a surprise to for me to see what’s shows up in the paintings… I never know what’s a creature or trees or what ever who will pop up or out from this when I start… everything can happen.

Dear Paula: when something is beauty, something gets pleasure and joy to the spirit, it is ART, like this, like what you do. I like very much what you paint although you don´t think about it when you are painting. Congratulations, and go on...
Kisses. Fernando

Thank you both for the comments.

I’m both surprised and happy that you like my images.
Thank you very much!

I have try to used salt in some of this paintings, it’s very interesting what’s happen when you add salt or sugar to the watercolour…

Take care and enjoy life!

With love and thoughts Paula.
