Friday Greetings

7th July 2023 Beena


Hello there. I had no energy to write even though I knew what to write. Does that happen to youπŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”? When I painted that place in white with a blue sea as the background, I was unsure how it would turn out. It is a watercolour painting.


I received a gift of poster colours from Francis recently. However, when I tried to paint, it was terrible😰😰😰. I was desperate as I had no painting for my Friday greeting. Now you may wonder about this Friday greeting and why I do it. A close friend who wishes to remain anonymous used to post something on Fridays a couple of years ago. When I began painting during the pandemic, I decided to post whatever I had painted as my Friday greeting. It began with a few friends; now I send it to 150 friendsπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. I added new ones as I went along, so it is evolving.


I had many comments on that simple painting of white buildings with a blue sea and lots of subtle shadows. So even though I thought it would be an easy painting, it was not that easy😎😎😎. But I loved your comments about the holiday places that you went to. Many identified it as Santorini in Italy, and Agnes identified it as Benidorm in Spain. I have not been to any of these places. I saw this on Pinterest and painted it. However, I noticed that the greetings bring in memories, usually happy ones, and that makes my dayπŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ’ƒπŸ½.


I enjoy sending the Friday greetings and hope the recipient feels the same. Some told me they look forward to the Friday greetings as they are unsure what to expectπŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”. But for me, it’s about the inspiration to paint a subject🀯🀯. Thank you, guys, for being there for me to post every FridayπŸ™πŸ™πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‰.

  2. I look forward to your Friday posting. Today, the painting of the semi translucent mermaid is an extension of imagination of this mystical creature.πŸ’•

  3. Beena, looking forward eagerly to Fridays and enjoying your artistic works.
    Now I realise there’s a story behind each of these.
    May you continue to engage us with your art and words.

  4. I always love your Friday greetings even if I don’t often respond . It means the end of the week has come. !
