On 18 July, 2016 I decided to embark on the 100 Days of Painting challenge. I had been aching to get back into the studio to paint and felt this was a great way to keep myself accountable and also literally ‘show up’ in my studio space. Below are the paintings I created during the 100 days which were exhibited at El Campanario Golf and Country house in Spain during the months of December 2016-February 2017 as a result!

“Love Blossoms here”
Beneath the falling blossom
So soft in the breeze
It rains pink and white
As I sit silently under the tree
Take one moment
All near and dear
For those that pass by
Love blossoms here

“I Dream in Wisteria”
I dream in wisteria
As days gone by
Beautiful blossoms
They make me sigh
Soft and gentle
Blowing in the breeze
Dreams to come true
To be wild and free

A Journey across the sea
Where life is wild and free
A place to just be
The person that is truly me

“Secret Garden”
A secret garden
Lies beyond here
Full of mystery and wonder
For all we hold dear
Come explore and enjoy
The beauty it beholds
Dream your big dreams and
The truth will be told

“Peonies in the Garden”
Take a walk through
Flowers pink and bright
Peonies in the garden
Are such a beautiful sight
So delicate and fragile
They bloom in the sun
The smell so sweet that
summer has finally begun

“Ocean reflections“
Ocean reflections
Of life gone by
Shimmering light
This beautiful sigh
Like life, the ocean
We ride the wave
A life by the sea
I will also crave

Summer colors
In the heat
They shimmer and shine
The air smells so sweet
Cocktails and dreams
A fresh cool mojito
Barefeet in the sand
At my local chiringuito

“Enchanting Ocean”
Enchanting Ocean
So wild and free
What lies beneath?
That wild, wonderful sea
Your colors so cool
And patterns so bright
I could sit here for hours
and bask in this light.

“Starlight Reflections”
That moment, the stars come out at night
And dance across the sky
Lighting up the deep indigo blanket
Their patterns sparkle and shine
The sea, silent, calm and captivated
In love with the light
I gaze on this Starlight reflection,
And thank the universe for such a beautiful sight.

“Across the Bay”

Across the bay, Color reflecting onto the sea, There is something so quiet in this moment, So, breathe and just be. 

Pink and purple, Gold and blue, Soak in all the colors, they are for you, true.
