Painting frenzy

It's been a while since the last day I painted like today. 4 paintings in one day... one of them bigger than my usual (11x14) and I feel awesome! For one reason or another I stop painting for several days and I just needed some artistic time. Now I have several pieces ready and many others pending in my sketchbook and many good ideas. That's the hardest part... there are days when I can't draw a single line without ruining the canvas... others when I don't have any ideas... but there are days, my good friends, days like today in which I not only paint but fill pages and pages with sketches that will become paintings or dolls one day! Those days are worth the starvation and the lack of sleep... those days are very rare!

I also had the chance to finish some oil paintings that I had laying around the studio. I love painting with oils but I don't have the patience to make it often, that's why I use acrylics most of the time. But here they are, I hope you like them. I made them before the heat wave hit us... you can see the difference between them and the new ones that reflect more the weather ;)

UPDATE: They're now available at my Etsy Shop :)

On my table...

Thanks a lot for all your comments about the braces. It's really better than I thought. There's a saying here that says that you can get used to everything except starve... so now I'm used to them and there's no pain anymore... I just make a lot of weird faces with them :P And yes, I got to pick the color of the rubber bands (light blue!)... I'll get to change them every month!

And now in my table...

I've found a better, more economical and more effective way to lose weight...

Ugly Betty

Get braces! I just got out of one thing and I get into other... Had I known braces would be so effective to stop eating I would have get them before :P All my mouth hurts and since I have to wash my teeth after eating and after brushing 10 times in a day I found it to be very frustrating so now I'm just not eating between meals and chewing reaaaaaally slowly.. and I've drop another 2 pounds already :) But I didn't get the braces to lose weight... I had to get them and I've been postponing it for years... but they're so necessary now that I had to say yes.

My advice? don't get the balloon... get braces!

Coraline is visiting my studio!

I know I said that I was going to take pictures and update the Etsy shop a little bit this weekend... but I went to watch Coraline... again!! (this is my third time!)... and then I received my little Coraline's and we spent the rest of the weekend making jewelry together... I love Coraline! We even made a new kind of necklace, with glass, let them show you:

What is she going to do with these?

Look what I found!!! A Frida necklace!

She should use these beads for the next one...

No, she should use the blue ones!

I love it like that!

Happy Easter!!!!

Hi everybody! How did you spend your Easter??? I hope your day wasn't as bad as mine! I've spent the whole week cleaning boogers... First mine and then my daughter's... we have a bad case of the flu! The only thing worse than spending a Holiday sick is that your daughter spends the Holiday sick... No egg hunting for her.. Not trip to the zoo.. Not even going outside :( Good thing is she doesn't have a clue what day is it.. so I can always organize something for her when she's better, right?

PS: By the way, I added some new original ACEOS and Paintings to my Etsy Shop ;)

Waiting for the movies!

Thank you so much for the wonderful response to my shop update!!! It's been a success!

I'm so excited today because I saw the trailer of one of the most expected (by me!) movies ever! "Where the wild thing are"... I was expecting to see the monsters so much and I'm not dissapointed! They're great! Just as the ones Maurice Sendak drew... And as far as I know, they're real!!!

Another of my favs lately? Coraline!! I know, I know... that is not longer at the movie theaters but I'm desperately waiting for the dvd!... can't wait!! I saw it twice (and I'm going to watch it again many, many times!). It was a feast for my eyes! All those wonderful little characters!!! I hope you didn't miss the opportunity to watch it on 3d!

And the other I saw that just made me laugh and laugh and laugh... Monsters vs. Aliens.... go watch it if you have a chance, you won't regret it!
