My Creative Space

Last week, the main event in my creative space was the absolutely unexpected sale of my dream board. One of my Facebook acquaintances discovered it in my album over there and was ready to pay a fair price to get it. I'm still feeling excited about that and a bit of nervous, as it's my first ever painting sold and shipped to another continent. I really hope all my creative efforts in preparing it for the long way and the new life in somebodies home would pay off and make the new owner happy and me as well :)
Last week, I have left an art group on FB I didn't feel well in. The time and energy I spent over there I'm using now to be more active in a group around Milliande Demetriou.
The cover of my new art journal...
...and a couple of spreads in it...





The other spreads of last week I consider finished were inspired by my daughter.
In this one I incorporated my portrait drawn by her (not that my face really looks like that, but I think, this image depicts my inner self pretty precise). And in the envelope there is a love letter written to me by my daughter.
The inspiration for this one came from all these stickers, my daughter had put all over my screen and desk, while I was at work.
