My days

The last couple of days, I have spent mostly at our PC working at a large translation I have to deliver on June 20. But I still took care for my kids and animals, and even managed to do some gardening and art now and than.


Our new family member - the dog girl Lesa - is settling in fast and well. Even our cat lady is adjusting pretty easy, although she still attacks her at least once every day. Lesa has developed a special love for my daughter Anna, who loves her very much as well.
As to the arting, I haven't done much, just continued working at the last portrait for a couple of short sessions every day. At some point I didn't like the features of the face, so I covered it almost completely and started out fresh and brave. Like them much more now.
One more great news: the " Bloom True" e-course with Flora Bowley has started today and I even managed to do today's exercises! :)


And a sad one: the artist Peter Sewell has lost his battle with cancer last Tuesday... I haven't met this nice man in person, but we had good contact via Facebook, and I will really miss him and his witty expressions...

I had never known about Peter, but after you mentioned his passing I followed the link to his blog, more than an hour later I was still reading ..... he thought he had beaten the "cancer thing" he had plans for August and beyond, I loved what he wrote about art and beauty, very sad, thank you for sharing his link x

I love the tilt of your daughter's head in this picture. Her personality really shines through.

Congrats on the new addition to the family.
I must say I love your portraits very much, they really "talk" to me. Wonderful work!
