Hunger





It happens every spring: I crave for colour. I need colour, I must create colour.

The days for the black and white are gone. For a while, because I know that period will come back, as surely as this colour inspiration overwhelms me every spring.

I’ve been a little lazy in taking photos. Instead I’ve wanted to make paintings, digital of course, because I have no patience for work that demands a long time. I have to be ready fast, I have no nerves to stay at one piece for a long time.

The urge, the hunger for colours, made me start the new blog. It’s my seventh…no, eighth, no, NINTH blog. Oh. Exaggerating? No. Every blog has it own function.

At least for me.

Ninth? Really?!

I understand your craving for colour. I do so too. Imagine my face this morning when I looked out of the window: everything was white. I have to get out soon to get some photos of the snow of April the 18th before it all melts in the bright sunshine.

SusuPetal said...

Ellen, winters seem to last forever here!

I'll pop by, don't worry, Gil!

Indeed, Mick!

Please do, Broca!

Yes, jl, ninth...we had also snow in Helsinki in the night, the earth was white when I looked out of the window at 5 AM. Then I went back to sleep and now the snow is gone. Sun is shining but it's freezing cold with the north wind!

8 blogs? Obviously a multi talented lady!

SusuPetal said...

Or lack of concentration, Jinksy!

I have a similar penchant for color, which indeed does intensify in spring. I appreciate your blog and your new art gallery blog as well, and would join it too if that option were available.

SusuPetal said...

Thanks for your comment, David and thanks for the interest of joining the art blog, but there is no such option.
I looked at your blog and was fascinated by the colors.

You're hungry for colours, and we're hungry for your blogs.

SusuPetal said...

I bet you'll be some day fed up with my blogs, HPY!

Peter said...

Somehow I understand your wish, but spring will bring its own colours! (Soon, if not yet!) :-)

SusuPetal said...

Hope so, Peter, it's -2 degrees just now here...the sun is shining though.

Nythän alkaa väriä löytyä puutarhastakin.

SusuPetal said...

Totta, Hannele, minulla ei van ole puutarhaa. Parvekkeelle pitäisi kyllä jotain tehdä...
