Updates in May

Well... so many things have been going on! Where do i start?

Graduation time... sniff sniff, my younger one finished high school... and it required 100 errands and award ceremonies. Why don't they make all into one? Maybe because they do not want all their audience in a comma by the time they finish... I guess it is better to have them divided in separate interests I suppose...

I have been taping, editing etc a class, plus one that is back at U-thrive yaay!

Also I started to use more the instagram, which is easier to click an image and post from there.... I still love the blog more but it requires me to sit, think, type something more or less cohesive lol and transfer my said clicked images into the computer.
In general, I have been spending less time online, and more time painting.

Anyway, here is a picture of what's on my desk at the moment. One of my art journals, and the beginnings of some tiny dolls: ♥


Excuse my messy desk. I wanted to participate in the 6th anniversary of WOYWW What's on your work desk Wednesday: Congrats! I have participated in the past, always interesting!

Visiting the Getty

Happy mother's day!

I love the Getty Museum. Not only you see tons of art, you also have the chance of feel their great weather up there. So we went for mother's day. Great gift for me, to spend the whole day there, having lunch, taking pictures, enjoying the weather and visiting the 4 buildings ♥

These beautiful orchids were part of my day too. Gift from my DH.


One of their changing exhibit included 3 drawings by Klimt, and one painting by Alphonse Mucha, along with many others, but those were my favorites.  Photography in those rooms is not allowed, but I found some pictures online.

So much art....

...and so little post to show it!
Funny when I'm running the 29 faces challenge I seem to be always around the blog, but  even when I am still doing as much art, for one reason or another I don't come here to post :oP
For one thing, I am doing the 100 day project and posting it all in (gasp!) Instagram. Yes, I know, I left tons of networks with a self memo not to join anything anymore,and I have been happy that way, but this one project runs there and felt like a big incentive, and I found out taking a pic with the iPad and posting/sharing from there too is a lot easier.... BUT I do not like it as a place to socialize. I think it is as bad as Pinterest and less organized. Not for me except for posting my 100 projects.
With all that said, here is an image of some of the stuff posted there:


I haven't taken pictures or scan them so all I have is the iPad image.

In other news, I have a new video too!


Can you tell I have been in a neon pink kind of mood? :oD
If you want to make a video art-collab with me, let me know! You have to have a youtube channel though ;o)

Green and birds

I have been busy with projects, and errands. Even going to the dentist is more enjoyable now that we have better weather although we had some too hot days the past week, reaching 33C/92F which for winter, even for this area, it's a bit much :oP

But anyway, yesterday I went to get some goodies at the art store and I took some green pictures, anything green that I found for St Patrick, bu then I forgot to come to the blog to post LOL Here is my collage a day late:


 I love the birdies! This with the crown is my favorite:


And also, I want to show you a picture of the sky last night, The whole light was intense  pink! it was a lot pinker but by the time I got the picture it was dissolving into sunset.


I hoe you are having a beautiful week.

Slide show of my 29 faces

I made this slideshow  of my work from February.... My goal was to loosen my brushwork, I tend to go too much into details, so for the challenge I try to only do more abstracted faces:


All this past week I have been working on my new class project with some breaks to go into Lala land and day dream lol  (◔‿◔)

Happy birthday PPF!!

Traveling journal, a page for Gina

This dreaming lady is going back to Gina in the UK ... She wanted something with happy thoughts and this is my interpretation ♥ The sun in her forehead is metallic gold.
I had so much fun painting her!
