Festivals

February 27th, 2019

Festivals

Once I was not aware that being an artist means not only creating but also a harsh effort and a multitude of work that surrounds your creativity.
A few of the exhibitions I organized took place at intervals, which allowed me to take a short breath and be able to organize well. Festivals in which I took part earlier did not last longer than three days, (eg in Tramore in 2016). A huge surprise and a new experience was Fringe Art Festival in Carlow in which I not only took part but I was part of the team preparing everything from the back site. A few weeks of preparation projects, rooms preparaton, meetings ect. with very interested people, who did their best to make this five-day festival in the memory of everyone. The city which at the same time ran the Carlow festival cooperated great artists from many countries, that was an amazing show in the city. In any case, in the Fringe group I met amazing people who are starting their artistic journey and artists who have been involved in the creation of art for many years. These contacts and the common will remain with me for next few years and I am glad that I had the opportunity to be part of this undertaking. Now I'm preparing to the next artistic booths, taking part in the next exhibitions and festivals where it will be possible to buy the presented paintings and prints .This is a world that more and more surprises me and amazes me, it is not a cheap art-trip, it carries a lot of costs, a lot of enegy and time but it is worth it and thanks to this I appreciate more and more what I do and my uniqe painting treats with great respect. One of the next great steps in my artistic career is participation in Art3f Festival in Cannes where you will have the opportunity to purchase and see two of my paintings from July 27th. I invite you cordially, and if you can not be in France, it will be nice to meet you on my FB site.

See you soon and all the best

Finding yourself

April 27th, 2018

Finding yourself

Being an alcoholic daughter, a father who abused his family. I'm going through a lot of things, forgetting and fighting with what I not agree with. But because I wanted to forget things wrong, I forgot what shape my character. My mother was a resourceful woman and she grabbed every opportunity to earn money. Thanks to this, I had the opportunity to visit several countries as part of removable trade. I was in Russia, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, etc., as a girl helping my mother in transport. Memories of trips to my grandmother's village where I hide in the hay and after passing a garden with potatoes and cereal I went to the forest, where I found tombs for German. I played on the trees, I was running around military squares. Painting and drawing in various mysterious places. I was a discoverer! But I soon had to grow up and deal with my financial problems, I started selling different goods which I import from Germany to Poland. With my brother and his musical instruments, I set off to the Netherlands where I spent a month working in the bar on the kitchen sink. Having a little daughter, I had to manage somehow, until I made constant work on the contract in a hydraulic company. At the beginning as a sales assistant and then as a specialist in water and heating installations.
I realized that I can be who I want and do whatever I want, and I do not have to let myself be crushed by others, the world is huge and there is another life and good people. I can do everything, I cannot repair the whole world, but I can change my own. When I left for Ireland, I found my peace, but I do not say it was easy. I met my husband and we bought a house. It was here that I returned to my passion seriously and began to express myself through with painting. Everything that surrounds me is in that is what touches me, my emotions, memories, pain, fear, love and freedom. Everything that inspires me to create images is not dependent on whether it is, films, photos, a conversation or my inside scream to do it now, but from my own reception and emotions related to this. Unfortunately, life is not a fairy tale and the logs are still being crushed. But I know one thing that I am doing is important and not only for me but for my wonderful recipients. People who love life, feel the need to discover and enjoy life, strong appreciating the uniqueness of life and my art. I am glad that what I am doing is important not only for me but also for you.
It is beautiful and priceless!
All the best Elwira x

My short long way ..

March 24th, 2018

My short long way ..

The life of a tricks, I gave up my artistic school ages ago and directed my teaching to more responsible paths to work and bring up children.
But after many years, my energy was subdued, and I had to stay in the house for a long time without knowing what to do with me.
I decided to keep my hands - sewing, crocheting and painting and learning. When my youngest son who was 5 years old still asked me for a new hat, a hand-painted shirt, etc., I started to like creating small mini-bands more and more.
I started to participate in supermarkets and get to know people at the same time constantly directing my thoughts to the development of painting. I did several weekly art courses, small sculpture, painting, glass, decoupage and acrylic painting. I decided to continue it because I got in love with it. In 2015, I registered the company and started artistic workshops for adults as a Tutor of Creativity. I work today for a few community centres and primary schools where he works with his parents and shows them different methods of creating their own works of art ..
Today my painting which I create with the help of acrylic is making from the depth of heart and soul. At first, I did not attach any attention to this, I put a piece of my soul there, and practically gave away my art almost for free.
Now I know that what I do with my participants at classes and my own art are two separate worlds.

All the best

My paintings are never repeated, and I give them all the energy I have in the moment of their creation.

With a wink

With a wink

Life is a surprising adventure.
My life is less rebellious today and I feel more calm and composed. But I know that the spirit of the rebel is in me and probably with the opportunity to jump out with a big one - HAHA I have you!
Our age probably does not matter because in fact, in each of us is something of a child, a teenager and seriously thinking person, we are mixtures of our lives, experiences and the desire of eternal adventure. Sometimes life unfortunately gives hard lessons. Let us learn to enjoy what we have here and now in order to appreciate what is coming and to introduce good changes in life without impulse and pressure.
My 10-year-old son taught me that life must be watched with a wink. We can not do anything for certain things and the rest depends on us and there is no evil that will not come out for good.

All the best

Snow in Spring

March 7th, 2018

Snow in Spring

Spring snow drifts, beautiful ice icicles and snow-covered trees. It's a little strange and at the same time interesting and beautiful. Some cold and frost frightening others gives a lot of fun and joy. I personally love snow, maybe it's not at this time of year, but despite all the fun and wonderful views, I'm adding energy to me ... such an eternal child with me :) ..
I understand that many people especially in the country in which I live Ireland is not prepared for such climate change.
I have a few small tips for you, which in such cases as frosts and a lot of snow will help you with this measure.
If you buy a few things you need for such situations, you will never be surprised by the winter alarm.
1) Always have warm and water resistant clothing and shoes or shoes for crampons, hidden in such situations in the shed or in the attic.
2) Good tires and tire chains
3) In the house, a water pipe wrap the foam, and if it goes outside, secure it with some bags and sacks.
4) Tap with slightly released water so that the movement of water does not let it freeze.
5) Always have gas cylinders, a burner, a spade, water, salt for snow etc. ... to be free to leave the house or boil a meal or tea.
6) Always keep the heating at home, whether you have oil or gas, try to heat the water and the room a few hours a day to prevent the pipes from freezing. Igniting only in the fireplace will not protect your home against freezing.
Fun in the snow and freezing your body adds more energy, but remember that you need to warm up afterwards and eat a hot meal.
Never defrost your body directly because it can end badly .. try to do it gradually from cold water to a warmer one until you feel a good blood circulation.
I really enjoy the time of fun in the snow as well as sometimes on the beach and swimming.
I hope that every next snow season will be for you pleasure and not fear, lack of water, cold and not knowing how to get out of the house.
Early preparation will make you calmly spend time with your family.

If you need more positive energy and warmth in your home interior, I suggest you one of my unique paintings that will inspire you.. :)

Life and my children

November 4th, 2017

  Life and my children

Hello, today is my beautiful and joyful day, so I have to write something to you.
I am happy with what is happening in my life, considering where my childhood came from and how much I had to go to be here and now (sometimes even with the devil signing) my search for love and happiness was fulfilled. I think my images show what way I go, how I walk and how cracks and cracks I treat, my joys and sorrows, fears, frailty, joy, happiness and confusion, and my spiritual and emotional development.
I'm proud mom, I'm glad I could give my kids what I never had.
My 26-year-old daughter who graduated and fulfilled at work and realizes her dream of traveling and two adolescent sons 17 years and 10 years of wonderful boys.
Yesterday I had the pleasure to meet an amazing woman who deals with counseling and personality and looking for the right career direction for the future. I'm just going to see that this woman has allowed me to really understand that each one of us is different and it really does not need to be understood by our inner potential, our beliefs or the way we choose because we and the stereotypes we have always pronounced do not have to work. She has collected data about my 17 year old son and his strongest qualities and know what pride spread me that I have such an amazing son with completely different interests. She has found a school for him to develop his own passions in investigations, analyzes, chemical and physical examinations.
If each of us had a chance at meeting someone who would quickly analyze you and tell you exactly who you are in the middle of, we would not have made the mistake of choosing life paths for years, probably less frustration, stress, and depression.
I know everyone can be confused, but you know what better to confess to holding your own "I" than follow the models of others and be miserable. Now it all depends on my son, surely more is what he really is and will be amazing things he did in life.
   I wish all of you to find who we are and what we want from life

Joyful through life

August 29th, 2017

Joyful through life

Thanks to that I am doing what I love and I surround myself with people with passion, my life makes sense and feels that there are no things impossible.
I know I have to put in a lot of effort and work (sometimes I do not sleep at night) But satisfaction with the effects and the final euphoria is worth it.
I also have a lot of luck because my beloved person supports me and without that it would be a lot worse.
Anyway - we only have one life and it is worth to put it right in love and in spite of the obstacles we encounter along the way.
And I have to thank my family and friends for being around me -for good and bad.
I love them ...

Photography

Photography

Photography - an amazing case of catching a second of our life.
Possibility to convert photos from classic to fancy or change to a different time than the actual one.

Me and my husband love to click pics like most of today's society.
Fantastic is that everyone can catch something that can be changed or added to the photo amazing effects .
I love photo because I can resist my painting and manipulate my photos using a brush and paint .

Greetings
Elwira
