Remedy


The cure for anything,
is salt water --- sweat, tears, or the sea.

Rabbit Town Animator said...

I miss your work!!! So glad to see you back! I am loving everything about this piece, especially the seahorse and the clouds and fish kites!

josh pincus is crying said...

beautiful painting.

Isabelle said...

Hello neighbor!! Welcome back Mita!! This is lovely.. as everything you do. I particularly love how the clouds interact with her. The way she is holding le petit hyppocampe (the small seahorse), as if softness, kindness and sweetness attract each other. Very poetic, very much you! :) Have a great day Mita!

roberto said...

Ah !!!!! very beautiful, very beautiful
Oh, there's always cure for all
the sea is a good remedy
the immensity of the sea makes us wonder if we really have a right to feel bad
if we are not even a drop of it
I love the three worlds that you show here, three worlds, three realities, three truths (such as MCE, you are very talented, very talented)
Koinobori Ah, yes inseparable, the wind shakes but they remain there forever, good metaphor.
thanks for remembering us and show your art.:)

audrey said...

Ah, sweet one. This could not be better. Three of my favorite things - seahorses, starfish and fish!!!! LOVE IT!!!
So happy that you found time to do another drawing. It is beautiful, Mita.
Missing you.

Une petite sirène qui trouve le réconfort auprès de monsieur hippocampe... parfois il faut laisser aller les larmes... elles ont ce goût salé de la mer...
Une très belle illustration qui met en scène de merveilleux nuages. J'aime le sublime jeu de l'eau et de sa transparence.
Gros bisous.

k.h.whitaker said...

lovely as always Mita, the water effect is very cool

Ces said...

Hello dearest lovely one,
I missed you so.
I am so happy to see you peek out.
What a beautiful illustration. I love the texture and the tender emotion.
That's what you call horsing around in the water :) Heheheh!
I love you dearest one.
TSUP!

Ces said...

I shall return this evening, when I get home. Tsup!

Miss Aoki said...

IwoX said...

Dearest Lakhsmita! I love your girls and your fishes, I love your ideas, I love your colours, I love your style, I love your... everything!!!
A lot, lot lot of hugs from Poland:-)

Vilt og vakkert said...

Heisann!

Here I am, missed your illustrations for some time!
You are right salt water is a marvelous remedy, like The pond of Aphrodite, as I call it!

Have some nice, magic summer nights ;:OD)

Steve E said...

Is it OK if I sneak in here and comment? I looked up koinobori (although I knew they were the fish).

Steve E said...

You grace us too seldom with your work, which is 'perfection'. Are you human?

Steve E said...

I forgot, you are one who uses spirits which grant you supernatural powers. And do you know, Mita? I really BELIEVE that!

You are indeed above all who I know--in many ways.
Maybe some day those spirits will grant you....

PEACE!

Steve E said...

Sorry I am using so much of your space. I'll go now and put salt in my wound, and on my dinner.
It will flavor both--delightfully.

Very cute!!!!! ^___^

Tammie said...

I love the tender feeling/ relationship between your lady and the seahorse, so beautiful. A lovely piece.

lovely week to you ~

Ted Blackman said...

Stay away from those video games, they sap your creative energy.
On the other hand, I'm lovin' those wind socks, I want them! And can you tell me where one can find large sea horses like that? I used to have an aquarium when I was a kid and my most favorite occupant was my hermit crab, but I never had a sea horse, especially one big enough to ride! WOW!

renilde said...

Oh i wondered where you were, your painting illustrates Karen Blixen's words so well. Above wind and clouds, the soothing seaworld, the peace and calmness beneath, very well done Mita, beautiful. x

Graciela said...

kisses for you

rossichka said...

A strange couple, sunk in the grief... But as water is flowing, the sorrow will pass; as the wind is blowing away the clouds, the suffering will vanish... And a new beginning will appear, a clear page, with the memory of someone's warmth that helped...
I like the colour palette, you've used, Mita! Wishing you a lot of joy!

Horacio said...

Great red hair, I just love it.
when I see in high sky fish flying and surfing the wind waves I know we are free!

Ps. Simplemente exquisito!

Horacio said...

Also loving the clouds!

Horacio said...

Mita, that seahorse is lovely and charm but is hidding the interesting part!

Ps. Always pure!

SpongeRob said...

Oh, I'm seeing a mermaid!

Saturnino said...

Mita always Bonita, its so nice to have you back on your home and your blog (is there any difference?).

I have so much to say about this drawing, but i'm going to need some more time to think about the exact words to express my feelings.

Kisses and more kisses for you dearest Mita.

Snezana said...

audrey said...

And you, my friend, are the sweetest witch...
xo FF

Ana said...

hello there, witch. I missed you and your illustrations :)
I think that quote is right, just watching the sea is so relaxing and makes you forget all your troubles. I feel blessed to live in a city by the sea.

Ana said...

Lovely, the sea looks so peaceful and I really like the different shapes of the clouds. Her eyes closed makes me wonder what she's thinking about...must be someone she loves. That's the only reason I could think of, otherwise she won't be missing that beautiful landscape around her :)

Ana said...

ok, you can have the room :)
Thanks for the Audrey Links!!! I love those pics where she is inside Mel's coat ♥

Ana said...

ok :)
I've been without a job and watching old Law & Order reruns, we have to start our band soon.I only need to find my guitar...

jasperandblue said...

Beautiful... I love mermaids

art is jok(k)e(n) said...

But seriously: this is very very good piece. I can tell you it is a remedy for me to look at it. I am sure that this time I am not exaggerating when I say it's for me a pic of the week !!!
Louise ( sorry I have still no Google account)
(Yesterday I ran for a few hours of my meadow but THEY told me I was naughty. I wanted just feel freedom....but now I am happy to be back!)
I feel very honored of being on the desktop!! Hormat kami terima

Shirley said...

OH, Mita! I am here too..it's been far too long. A beautiful image of this lovely girl and the seahorse..in the salty sea. Lovely words - I hope they are tears of happiness! I have missed your work and you, dear Mita..Monsieur and the faeries all say hello and send their hugs. Monsieur is stuck on a plane somewhere and I must get him down..he has to complete his adventure right?! I always, always love when you visit. We are well..summer is: lessons for the little ones, swimming for all of us..and time to recharge (at least a little while I still work). Big hugs to you, dear Mita!!

Vilt og vakkert said...

Heisann!

I have tried to reach you, but was not invited at that time.
I have spent the last days in Lofoten, high up north -in a wild and wonderful landscape.... far away from dreadful scenario in Oslo.
But now I'm back again on the blog and in my house ... and with one cat missing. Sia is still with me (sitting here next to me), but Nøste is sleeping for ever. I miss her so much!
Hope you are fine ... how are you been doing?
With love from bjorgnin

Hello Mita,
I'm happy to come here and see your beautiful work. Makes me feel better.I've been too depressed these days to make anything new that I have abadoned my blog a bit...no specific reason, just horrible dark days, hope things change soon.
And I really hope you feel great...or better than me at least :)

Shirley said...

Mita, my dear friend, how are you?! It's been too long and I hope that there is sunshine in your world. I have been tending to the faeries all summer (camps and such) and had a chance to run away with a girlfriend for a much needed getaway- we visited friends and had good food..that is always a treat. I hope things are well and that you are busy busy creating and enjoying time for yourself..big hugs to you!! : )

This is beyond awesome!

el perro de las lágrimas said...

Hmmm ... some suffer goodbyes before, and others suffer later. Anyway, we suffer.
We should think that goodbyes are like a birth, after the pain starts something new, probably very good.
my goodbyes, always have been the beginning of a long wait for a new goodbye. is the life that destiny appointed me, tears.
Thanks for your comment!

el perro de las lágrimas said...

you know, "el perro de las lágrimas" means: "the dog of the tears" :)

I adore this painting, but I am amazed at how the words add layers to it. Thank you for creating a beautiful work for all of us to admire. :)

Mr Peter wants to say hello to you. I don´t know whether he knows all the answers,or the oracle.

Ehh ... I do not know the secret of linx-women, her eyes are too deep, I do not get to the bottom of them,
Ohuhmmmmm I do not know, do not think you can become A. H. ... You're okay as you are, and besides, life on film sets is not pleasant,
in lynx woman, yes, (almost you are, I believe)
oh, no! why do not you sent me one of those pictures?

This note isn't so cool, considering all...

If they ask you about me, tell them “She was the only girl who was addicted to me, and I broke her.”
