Blank...


I'm supposed to be writing a very interesting post about a very interesting subject. Or so my husband thinks... he's downstairs doing something else while I use the computer because I said that I had to write about something very important in my blog. I've been looking at books on amazon, reading other blogs and drooling at things on Etsy... And I don't have anything to say. You'll see, my baby has been sick with the flu for more than a week now... I take care of her the whole day and we can't leave the house because of the weather (the doctor said it's better to stay inside, it's easy for him to say so while he's allowed to go out)... So I have to find like 298499 things during the day to keep her busy and by the time I have to work I'm drained... just empty. Don't have energy, don't have ideas... all I want to do is do nothing.... So here I am... doing nothing.... I hate that I wake up with so many ideas and energy and by the time I actually can do something is all gone...
Anyway, yesterday I made a Frida! I miss her... been a while since my last painting of her, but this time she comes 3D... She's on Ebay right now, and she will be the one doing the work...

Many thanks!

I want to thank you for all your support on my Etsy shop!!! The spring sale is a success thanks to you. Knowing that people like my art so much they pay to take it home is one of the biggest compliments!!! I can't thank you enough!!!!

I've been posting a lot about my art lately and today I want to post about somebody's else's work. I love the Wired Self Portrait Photo Contest so much! But these 2 are definitely my favorite:
AmsterS@m's Bad Hair Day
Wrong Era

Bad hair day is a great idea for a painting! It's inspiring!

I also wanted to share with you what I got in the mail today!!!! It's a wonderful original collage from the wonderful illustrator Gustavo Aimar:


Here's a better picture although it doesn't even get closer to the original, it's so beautiful and so nostalgic:
Thanks Gustavo!

Oh and also... my baby drew her first flower!!! All alone! I just told her, here you have to draw a flower and she did it!!!!!! Look:



See? the orange and yellow one!!! I'm so proud :)

It bugs me...

There are new things happening at my Etsy shop! There's a bigger update coming soon with great, beautiful things... But in the meantime, I added 2 New paintings: Lady Bug and Lady Bee are coming to announce the Spring to come soon! Also, for the art lover in a budget, I've added some ACEO prints. A more affordable option than the full size prints... Same great quality, smaller price. =) (If you don't find the one you're looking for, just email me and I'll be happy to add it)... Check them out here.

My new toys

If you wonder why I've been so quiet lately this is the reason: Papercuts & Gluesticks gallery. I've been working on several pieces for the amazing gallery located at 20119 Lake Rd, on Rocky River,Ohio. If you live there, don't forget to pay Kari a visit!! You can reach her by phone too by calling (440) 799.4344 She's offering beautiful, affordable art from many Etsy artists (including myself!!)... Such a great selection of indie art!!!

Another reason to be so busy? Windlewood! Lanae at Windlewood.com has a great selection of folk art that you will enjoy. I've been working with her lately and you'll be very pleased with the offerings :) Oh and she's a great artist herself! Look at this prim tree featuring my little dolls...A little ornament? Anyone?


Today I decided to take a break for the day and went antiquing to a store around here today, and found 3 little treasures!!! 2 beautiful and very well pre-loved toys and a library card holder!!! I've wanted one for so long but they just go to high when they have more than 3 drawers... I found this beauty at an affordable price and with the cards still inside! (perfect for my collages!!!).


And the trucks are lovely too. Specially the colors. I love how the paint on wood chips with time. Now the problem is where I'm going to put them. I spend so much time in my studio but it's too crowded already... I think I may place them in my dining room... or in my bedroom... I'm not sure, in the meanwhile here's a photo for you to enjoy :)
