Art course - Autumn

After a long break I decided to continue my painting and drawing hobby. I think I have nowadays more patience  for that, being a mom has changed me for good. Mila sleeps now two naps per day, and I try to write during the morning naps and draw or paint on the afternoon. But sometimes I do a little sketches at the morning before I write. It helps me clear my mind and concentrate.

So here's something I've done lately about autumn colors.

  1. Beautiful! There seems to be no end to your talent! I hope we get to see more of your work--perhaps for sale at some point? Can't wait for the Mila's Daydreams book to come out. Thanks for sharing your creativity with the world!

  2. Autumn is my favorite time of the year, especially the leaves. Seeing your paintings just made my day. They are so lovely!

  4. Well... I think it's not about talent, I consider myself pretty average in everything I do, but I'm really obsessed to educate myself to be better. It has been weird to realize I haven't change that much since I was a kid, I'm still interested about same things, visual arts, movies, music, culture, literature etc. When I look back example my drawing when I was a kid/younger, I feel ashamed, but I love that feeling. It tells me that I get better. In that time I considered myself good in drawing, but now I can see that I was really average or even poor technically, but I had that passion for it. I'm sure that everyone CAN be what ever they want, if they just do it long enough. In the book "Outliers" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outliers_(book) Malcom Gladwell has this 10,000-Hour Rule. And I believe in that. I'm not sure if I have practise any of my passions as long to have a high level success yet, but I try to get there. Not because I want to be the best, just because I love to learn and do things.

  5. They are beautiful and I admire your commitment to expressing yourself. Being a mom can overwhelm and I know what it takes to still BE YOU with a little one.

  10. P.S. You really should make some posters or prints of these. They would "sell like hotcakes," as the American saying goes.
