My painting makes me a little sad..

I was asked to paint a painting. 
A girl, a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a teacher, a beautiful person died, she was young, to young to die.
From the moment I was asked I knew how I wanted my painting to look like but was not sure that the people who asked me would like a painting like that.
 The day before I had made sketches of few paintings and the first one was the one I wanted to paint.
I don´t paint for people, I paint for myself, hoping someone else is going to like my painting and if they buy, I´m very happy.
I did start.
And I did paint.
I did not stand up for 5 hours, I wanted to finish my work, so I would have time to make another one, very different, If they did not like my painting.
I worked two more hours in the evening and then the painting was ready.
I was very happy with my work and I so hoped they would like my painting.
They did, they loved my painting.
They gave it away to the girls coworkers.
They loved my painting to.

Hope you like my painting too.
Happy PPF and Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

No time for painting

I need so much more time in my life.
This week I have not had time to paint or draw, I have been working, went to my paper Maché class.
Worked in my gallery, where we had long opening hours.
And Im so tired.

But one night I went to my school. One of the teachers is a quilt designer, you can see her webpage here we had  to make a christmas runner. 
We had so much fun cutting, glueing and sewing. About 12 showed up.
Im very happy with my runner witch I did decorate with hearts.
It says Merry Christmas in Icelandic.
Have a wonderful weekend all of you and a happy PPF.

What to do staying at home with a flu...

 Last week I was sick, staying at home, having a flu.
I was to sick to sit and paint so I moved over to my sofa.

I love to sit in front of the TV with my Neocolor and my watercolor paper and just start drawing.
I did start drawing one bird, then another.
I had to make background so I did draw houses, mountain and just kept on drawing till I was happy with my drawing.
Then I only needed one fine brush, water and my Neocolor.

The next day I did want to draw again so I started drawing an owl. When taking Life Book 2012 Juliette Crane was one of the teachers and she was teaching how to draw an owl.
I love her style of drawing and painting. 
Now I´m back to work, have had a busy week but now it is weekend.... love it :)
Have a wonderful weekend and a happy PPF to all of you.

My doll is done and a wonderful girl bought two prints from my Etsy shop :) :)

It does not happen often but it did happen now....
Im sick, having a flue.

I hate being sick and not able to go to work, especial now when we, all the teachers and the staff are having a friend week at work and Im missing everything.... Im sad :(

This week I did sell two prints from my Etsy shop. It made me so happy because I have not been very active there, always forgetting to add new things out there. 
But now Im going to add new items in there as soon as I have made them :)

It would make me very happy if you would take a visit one day, just to see what I have there and maybe share my shop with your friends.

After sewing my doll, filling her up and adding the clay I painted her black, I found it a little strange but after adding other colors I saw how cool it looked. 

Here you can see how se look, kind of like her face but Im going to make a new skirt, think it will look better if I make her wear skirt in bright colors.

If you missed my last post you can see it now because there Im showing the process of making the doll.

My ETSY shop

Have a wonderful weekend where ever you are and a happy PPF
