For example in the plein airs that took place in the mountains (Greece and Poland) she painted mountains. In order to paint, you need to see and feel, says the author. That feeling of impression is transformed into paintings and brings to the viewer the coolness of the sea and the softness of the grass.

They never get bored, because filled with the inner life inspired by the author, they reveal their new planes to the viewer every time.
