It's like if you want paintings become monumental nature. This monastery is physical, we can even touch it, not only see it. Your painting is almost a miniature model.

Landscape is fresh and gorgeus! Love those great trees full of light and those greens surrounding. Nature and human architecture are wisely mixed. It's not only a monument avoid of life, but a living creature.

The warm monastery is even warmer between those cold colours, it's a center of good energies, I imagine it as an ancient home for sad refugees in bad times, where they can breath and shelter, before going their way.

I think your blog itself is exactly that. People come here looking for a shelter.

I'd like to be a monk now. You'd be my sister nun inside those walls, painting the beauty of life around.

Passionately.


P.S. The music of praise doesn't sound properly. I'd look for another one if I were you.

You should give a little more time between posts. Don't be impatient. Let them comment a lot and express what they think.

My friend Bett shares a new work every monday. That way, people have time to write their opinions.

This masterpiece deserves more than 4 comments. And people use to write always about the last painting. If you publish a new one, they don't say anything about older ones. And that is a real pity.

So give them time. It's better for you too, having a LOT of comments praising your wonders.

P.S. I made a salomonic decission about my blog: the lunar one will be public, dedicated to you and the rest of my friends, I will publish there your art, their art and the art I like from History.
Then my own drawings will be in ANOTHER blog, a private one. And I'll invite you then.

Great hug, my dear Sister, you're a genius.
