I recently returned from Adria Art Murter 2012Croatia, where 9 artists were creating new artworks under the wonderful and peacful surroundings of wonderful and unique Murter.

With us was also very wellknown slovenian painter France Slana which was another great experiance for us, younger painters.
I have done 3 paintings. "Vitruvian Woman", Delicious Autumn!" and "Da Vinci Chromosom". 

Photos with higher resolution will come in near future.
All paintings are now owned by Tomaž Visenjak, organiser of Adria Art Murter 2012.

4.May 2012

Sometimes my time stops. And i do not paint. The emptiness comes around and my left hand can not touch the paintbrush. Can not draw. Nothing.
Its such a sensitive moment and its difficult to describe. Maybe with this simple words: Love ...Life ... Waves ...
Today, after 8 months (since october, when i finished my painting »My Deer, my Dear I shall guide you through eternal sphere«, and which was recently selected to »Celebrate the Healing power of Art«, by Manhattan Arts International
(, I started my new painting " And He called me through His Grace). Thank Y-ou.

Music: S W A Y by The Lucky Cupids

"Was Mona Lisa pregnant?" artwork is tommorow starting her way home to Slovenija. 
Po eni strani sem vesela, po drugi se sprašujem, kako bi bilo, če bi bilo. Potem se raje ustavim. Počutim se, kot da bi na pot odšel moj otrok in bom spet v skrbeh. Na nek način se umetniki včasih istovetimo s svojimi deli, kot, da so to naši otroci. Vsaj jaz sem se vedno. In ko se delo proda včasih ni enostavno. Ostaneš prazen. Potrebuješ čas, da se ponovno sestaviš. Zadnje tri mesece sem živela in delala samo za to New Yorško zgodbo. In je bila zares čudovita. Neskončno sem hvaležna zanjo. Za ljudi, ki sem jih v tem obdobju spoznala. Za vsa nova prijateljstva. Za vse ulice, ki sem jih obhodila in prevozila. Za vsa sončna jutra. Za vse veverice potepinke nagajivke (sori drage moje, nisem imela lešnikov). Za krik svobode v divjini. 
Zdaj ponovno začenjam od začetka. Nekega sredinskega, ki sem ga pustila v oktobru v nestrpnem pričakovanju najine pomladi. 
(v ozadju Financial District)

Upam, da bo Mona Lisa že enkrat rodila :) Evforija s to sliko in njena pot do New Yorka je neverjetna. Včeraj sem po pogovoru z mojo predstavnico iz Slovenije izvedela, da je bilo precej precej dramatično in da je z njo prišlo do celo nekakšnega izsiljevanja (izjemno kompleksna zgodba), tako, da bi pravzaprav lahko celo ne prišla do njene namenjene poti, na razstavo. K sreči se je vse kasneje uredilo in smo iz Fedexa preklopili nato na DHL. Res velika hvala moji pomočnici Janji. Končni rezultat: Po trikratnem kao srečanju s famoznim kao nekim artcollectorjem, do tega nikoli ni prišlo. Zdi se kot, da je ta človek morda bil izmišljen, kdo bi vedel. Tudi po zatrditvi, da se za mojo sliko zanimajo neki ljudje povezani s slovensko ambasado v New Yorku, vse do danes nisem izvedela kdo so ti ljudje. Na ambasadi o tem zgleda ne vejo nič. Zdaj se mi vse skupaj zdi tudi že malce smešno in pušča občutek razočaranja. Na otvoritvi se tudi nismo srečali niti z enim novinarjem, tudi kasneje ne. Je pa bila ta pot definitivno moja velika izkušnja in mi predstavlja popotnico za naprej. Slika bo še nekaj časa ostala tam (konec razstave je bil 23.1.), kaj bo z njo kasneje pa moram še razmisliti.

Danes sem našla svoje srce.

Ležalo je na poti. Na travnato makadamski površini, ki se vije mimo prostranih polj, kjer se sprehajam s svojim labradorcem Majem. Če se ne bi zaustavila, ker je mimo prišel drug kužek in če ne bi počakala še nekaj časa, da sta oba z lastnikom nadaljevala svojo pot, ga ne bi nikoli opazila.
