Im working on a big, big, big canvas...

This one is so big... 150x150 cm 
I have to stand on my toes to reach to the top while painting.
In june 2. Im going to be one of 26 people taking part in exhibition in Harpan,
the new concert and conference center in Reykjavík, Iceland

..... my painting is going to be on the wall in this awesome building.....
can you believe that... 

I have started painting, Im going to paint using the style I learned from Flora Bowley class
and Im so sorry but Im not going to post a photo until the opening of the exhibition in beginning of June.

While my painting is drying between layers I knit... I love to knit and crochet.
I made this doll for my little princess granddaughter.

And I made another one for a friend.
Have started on a new one but that is a boy in blue colors.
Ill post a photo when finished.

And more things are happening.
I was featured in an Indian Magazine, March 2014. 
The name of the Magazine is Indian Talent Magazine.

Im learning from Kelly Rae Roberts....

My newest class is the one with Kelly Rae Roberts.
Im in love with her art, she is the best in layers, I think.
I love the way she build up her paintings, layer by layer
and her choose of color is so fantastic.
As she says then she loves the white and use it a lot to blend other colors with.

It all starts with paint building up layers of colors, warm colors, cold colors and all the other colors and sprays, stencils and stamps, layer by layer. 

There are so many small details in her paintings and I tried to do my best by 
finding small things that would fit in my painting.

I worked on my first one for a long time, was not happy, 
to crowded and something was wrong.

So I did a little changes here and there and now Im almost done, 
going to work a little more with the lettering in the bottom.

I started working on my second background. Did a good start.

Love this one, reminds me of the summertime. 
Not going to work more on this one.

This one is on my desk now.
Im a little afraid with this one, dont know what to do next. 
Have not glued down the butterfly jet, not sure if I use it. 
Love the colors in this one, they are not my favorite but I like them.

That is my life today....
Trying to learn from the best...
Hoping that one day I find my style using all the tricks 
from all the wonderful teachers I have been learning from the past two years.

Have a beautiful day, all of you
