All's well that ends well (a canvas)/ Sve je dobro što se dobro svrši (jedno platno)




uljane boje /  oil paints












finished/ dovršeno


This canvas took me about two months to finish and to be quite honest I was starting to wonder if I'll ever get there. I did finish it sometime last summer and maybe I shown you a photograph of it back than. Nevertheless, I  decided to post these photographs to show all the different stages it went trough. As you can see, I made a lot of corrections in the process. The church portrayed is that of Saint Stephanus located in one of my favourite cities in Croatia, Stari Grad on the island Hvar. There is a very funny episode of Malo Misto that takes place in front of this church and I must had watched it a hundred times.

Bilo mi je potrebno oko dva mjeseca da završim ovo ulje na platnu i iskreno počela sam se već bila pitati hoću li ga ikada dovršiti. No, jesam tamo nekad prošlog ljeta, a možda sam vam ga već i pokazala tada. Odlučila sam objaviti ove fotografije da vidite različite faze kroz koje je prošlo. Kao što možete vidjeti, bilo je dosta ispravaka. Crkva koja je naslikana je crkva Sv. Stjepana u Starom Gradu na otoku Hvaru, poznatu  svim ljubiteljima Malog Mista kao crkva ispred koje se događa "borba" u epizodi Borbene Ponoćke (mislim da sam je pogledala sto puta).

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

HOW TO STYLE RED CLOTHING ITEMS FOR WINTER?

A few posts ago (yes, bloggers calculate time in post activity), I wrote about red accessories for winter but I also wanted to write about red clothing items you can wear this time of year. In fact, I was planning to write a big post about wearing red in winter but I realized that I need to split it in two because it was too long. Apparently, I have a lot to say about why wearing red in winter is a good idea. So, today I'll basically post the part two of my red in winter fashion musings. Red is a bold, energetic and dramatic colour. If you ask me, wearing red is a great way to invoke good luck in our new year. You can pair red with neutral colours to tone it down or with vibrant ones to make your outfits even more noticeable. Lunar Year festivities are a perfect time to embrace the red clothing items. Moreover, Valentine's Day is not too far off either. If you're looking for some winter red outfit inspiration, you have come to the right place. HOW TO WEAR RED IN WINTER?   My…

10 STYLE LESSONS LEARNED FROM MALENA/ MONICA BELLUCCI

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…

VISIT MALA STINIVA BAY ON ISLAND HVAR WITH ME (PART 1)

Today I'm taking you to Mala Stiniva Bay on island Hvar. I might talk for a living, but before this beauty I was left speechless and it's not even the first time I have visited this place. If you remember, I blogged about Mala Stiniva Bay back in 2018 and I originally visited it a few years prior to that rather lengthily travel post. My husband loved this place, so I promised to take him back some time. We went there last week. After I finished working, I put on a pair of white sneakers and drove there. When we got there, we just stared at this bay because it is so overwhelming beautiful. Now, that says something coming from someone who spent most of their summers on this island, mind you. Even for high standards set by island Hvar, this bay is enchanting. Most bays on island Hvar are absolutely gorgeous, but somehow this one stole my heart.  Mala Stiniva Bay belongs to Poljica village on island Hvar (not to be confused with a group of villages located on Dalmatian coast that…
