Turning emotions to a picture

Umění nechat odejít

Součást malířské profese je umět nechat své dílo jít. Proces, který jde ruku v ruce s vývojem umu, může trvat roky. Obzvláště těžké to je v případě maleb, které při samotné tvorbě plní funkci meditace a vyrovnávání se s nějakou životní situací. Tím spíše pak záleží, kdo dílo dostane do rukou. Formování smyslu Na začátku jsem měla cíl naučit se malovat tak, aby se mi obraz natolik líbil, že bych se na něj…

Strong woman - Lagertha

Apparently, series of Vikings was very strong experience. Characters development and all stories from northern countries which are so different from culture of mid Europe history as we know it. My impression I must admit I didn’t know much about it, just basic information what I learned from school when I was a child. The way how it is possible to capture all emotions, life struggles, habits, values and…

Where do you get inspiration from?

It’s a bottomless well of possibilities. Really. Look around you, everyday life, people’s stories, nature stories. Stories in our heads, dreams of nights, dreams we would like to realize and mainly — our own stories, stories of our lives, desires, wishes, bolts, pain, joy, sadness and from you. A miraculous brain Our brain works in shapes, pictures. There are thousands (or millions?) thoughts every minute…

The remembrance of my uncle Miloslav

I don’t know where my ability to drawing or painting came. I’ve never heard of anybody in our family who would pursue any kind of manual art. What’s interesting that those abilities we can watch from our childhood. Mostly if a child has some strong interest or behavior, with great probability he does a particular activity a big part of his life. And very often it’s part of his temperament or somebody of…

Never it’s too late

You have a dream. And then you’ll grow up. You try to find yourself and fit yourself into this world and after all of this, you forget about your dreams. Then the time of calming comes and you realize you didn’t have an opportunity to realize those dreams. Everywhere are people who managed something really big and you think about where the mistake happened in your life. You can see those talented people…

What did I need to start painting?

I skipped paintings of cubes and balls and other useless pictures. Yes, I needed to practice. So I did. I bought some paper and oil colors, brushes, pallet, turpentine and that was it. I didn’t want to destroy canvas because I had no idea how it will behave. So I chose watercolor paper which costs 7CZK (like $0.30). Inspiration I spent a whole day of watching video tutorials of Bob Ross. I understood how to…

What does it come into my mind when I’m painting?

Everything. And nothing. It depends. Sometimes it’s like to clear everything in your head just to forget everything in the world what happened bad and focus on something fantastic. To focus on the new world in your dreamland which is completely real at the moment. With any new stroke, you can feel more like living perfect fairy-tale of your life. Flow state As next levels come just clear concentration at a…

“Did you really start to paint just year ago and something? You’re so talented.”

Yes, I did but I disagree man has to have some special talent to hold a brush and create beautiful stuff. Only what he needs is opened eyes and he must perceive what he has around him including details. And of course to want to do this activity ;). Everything is about mind A technique is the smallest part of it and it’s individual. Everybody can learn the technique of painting or drawing but if a man can’t…

I‘m web developer why do I draw and paint?

This is always the first reaction of surprised people who I work with and then they find out I‘m an artist. I‘m not gonna explain how difficult personality man can be, the point is somewhere else. Faces Since I remember I‘ve had a close connection to music. And journey from music to visual art is not so far. When I was at primary school I was fascinated by people‘s mimics and their faces. Then I tried to…

My story

As a little girl I didn’t have careless childhood. A lot of situations was quite complicated and we didn’t belong among wealthy families. But even though I realized I could feel better and then it started a misson for happy life.

I read once if I have something pretty in front of my eyes even it should be daisy in the glass so it helps me to feel well. Since then I had been thinking about it.

At the moment I changed my view and I started to think what to have around me and how can I do it. Later there were posters of my favorite music bands and then I was staring on them for so long until I desired to draw them, to express what I can see in their faces. And so I had started to turn into drawings my deep feelings which nobody has no clue about . And from black and white they became colored. Up to once I discovered oil paints which I fell in love with completely. At that moment I understood there is no way back and what was only hobby became my life purpose. To catch beauty or feelings around, to my picture. I understood this is important part of me, my essence and maybe one of the reasons why I’m here on the Earth.

Every brush stroke compensated hours of therapies I would need to be what I’m without a shame. From the angry and scattered person hard skin peeled off and I’ve started to integrate my sensitive part until I realized I belong to hypersensitive people. This reality helped to perceive as an advantage and I can use these abilities in artistic creations.
