I'm fine!

Yes, I am. I went to the doctor this morning for a breast checkup (with this complicated machinery and a very very cold gel involved, you know...), and there is nothing alarming. Which is a relief! *^v^*
Go and have your breasts checked, girls, is there a better month to do this than October, the breast cancer awareness month?

Also this morning I received my latest art supplies order:
- the cutest colours ever, Aquamarine and Flamingo Pink, for my new painting about the shells and underwater creatures

- the oil pastels - I've never used these, only the dry pastels, so new experiences - here I come! ^^

- I also bought two cotton canvases, 10x14" by Windsor&Newton (for the first painting of the "Women" series I have in my mind) and 11x16,5" by Talens (for the Underwater painting), which has an amazing texture and this company may be my favourite!

I can also show you my first work that is very dear to me, being a housewife. I call it "Girl loves..." series, and for now I have the cooking girl in love with her cooking! ^^
(8x8", acrylics, scraps of paper, stamps, varnish, on painters board - a canvas stretched on a piece of MDF)

The last photo shows the painting I made for a friend, but it's a surprise and she's going to receive it in the mail some time soon (I hope), so I cannot reveal it yet! *^v^*


  1. Oh Brrr-i have not had to get checked by the machine but i know others that have-not fun but very important for us-Glad to hear that all came out well for you!!!

    Plus you got all kinds of great new art goodies!! isn't it so much fun when you have a newer hobby and you buy new things to experiment with? That is always my favorite and there are so many things out there to play with. i can't wait to see what you come up with next.
    Love the colors you got for your underwater painting.
    and your "Girl love cooking painting" is beautiful!! What great colors-The girl is so well done.
    It's been really great watching you progress as an artist. Can't wait to see what comes next.

  2. I love the "girl loves cooking," and can't wait to see what you come up with next. Oil pastels are one of my favorite things to draw with (I was never any good with the chalk ones; I hated how they just blew dust everywhere) and I hope you have a wonderful time experimenting and playing with them. I've really enjoyed reading about your art and admire your willingness to jump in and be "an artist of the process," as one of my art teachers used to say (that's a good thing!).

    Also, please let me know if you ever decide to sell "girl loves cooking." :-)
