Day 82 Acrylic Painting 3_22_12

Day 3 Painting
I think the painting is finished but I want to see it in daylight before I make my final decision. When you look at it from far away the colors blend and give you a more dramatic view of the swelling wave.

Days 76,77,78 Acrylic on Canvas paintings

What a busy 3 days!  And creative ones too :D
I painted for 3 days in a row which I hope continues as it always calms and centers me.

Day 76  3_16_12
Danger Awaits
Acrylic on 9x12 canvas.
The brush dictated the painting. It took a while to create as the circles took time. One must have a steady hand!
I was going to add more to it, but felt that it  would take away from the feeling a lone shark against all the whiteness evokes.

Day  77  3_17_12
Fishing Dream
I woke up on Sat and saw this long twisted dream where I went by the water and started fishing with an ex... and as soon as my line was in the water I caught this weird looking fish... and repeated the pattern a few times. The fish had  bright colors with yellow dots...  and I kept on seeing everything in an angle. Weird...

Day  78  3_18_12
Correcting an older painting
 I made this painting for my mom in 2002 of a flower arrangement she received and loved.  I never really completed it and was unsure how to make objects look more 3d than just flat. I am soooo happy with how my skills have improved. The only thing is when I took the finished painting picture, there was not enough sunlight  and the picture looks duller though the colors in reality are just as bright (but deeper) than the original. Mom LOVED it and took the painting with her.. :)

Day 66 Birthday #44 3_6_12

Birthday Self portrait

44 with a new shade of red - me like!
This year my birthday was different.
Filled with surprises and unconditional love. I was looking forward to 44 as the number itself has a nice ring to it. All i can say is that the picture of Venetia does not have an inkling of depression or sadness to to it. And that was celebrated. 
Since I was surrounded by loved ones and a kindle fire plus some work- i didn't spend too much time on creating. I made a quick sketch of myself. I still have issues with my nose (God bless my Greek ancestors for that one) as I did last year too, but I look happy in my sketch. Last year's water color had me looking intense and angry. So there is lots of improvement :D

I can't thank enough all who wished me a Happy Birthday, who complemented my hair ( yes i had an awesome hair day today) and all who noticed my much slimmer and healthier  look. You all lifted my spirits and I am still floating.
Thank you!

Day 64 3_4_12

Crochet square
Well, my large crochet piece found an unlikely demise. :(  This time I wanted something that would finish faster. So I took the the flower pattern and just did it in a square. I love it and now working on a second one.

Day 61 3_1_12


Happy First day of March! In Greece when I was growing up we had the tradition (one of my favorite traditions that we still keep in our household) of wearing a red and white thread bracelet. We wear them so the "sun won't burn us" :D At the end of the month we throw them out in nature so birds can use them in there nests!

Lately these drawings have been creating themselves. Crabby.. not sure if it is because I am feeling this way ;)
