No time for nothing...

Last week we worked on a residence project-including saturday and sunday-. Monday was the first step of the submission. And today we've moved the office-we actually carried things, so I'm really tired-. Tomorrow morning I'm going to the new place; comings and goings will take me 2 hours a day. And I think I'll work also this weekend, because monday is the last step of the submission...

After all these excuses... I couldn't paint or draw anything... :P

Here is a small watercolor study that I did few months ago...

Missy & Vito

Hard day at work... I couldn't draw, paint, even breath... This video always makes me smile. It's made almost a year ago. One day one little kitten came under the our balcony, she was so desperate. Now she is a real witch :D Have fun!

Work in progress

Once upon a time(about 6 months ago) I was a freelancer-since 2001- ; I had lots of time to paint then-but no work-. Now, I finally have a job but no time to paint. It's sad to realize how I wasted my precious time with lots of useless things instead of painting. I had to paint more and more...

These two pieces will be a gift for my best friend. I started them 6 months ago. And after the first wash, they had to be abandoned in a lonely corner. Recently I started to work again. I have hope, they'll finish... And my friend... Well, she's still waiting patiently :)

Family portraits

Few weeks ago, my daughter wanted to see my old studies for some inspiration. So these dusty papers saw the sunlight again. They're 25 years old... I was 15 then. Not bad, huh?!

First Post

Yes, finally I start my blog. I'm not expecting too much. Just want to be more creative and hope that this blog will be provocative enough for to do something daily-or weekly at least-.

I start with an old painting... dated... I don't know... 2004 maybe. It's my favorite. My little girl playing with sand by the sea, under the bright sun. She's a teenage now. I must paint her more often...

Happy Mother's Day!
