First (late) Posting in 2010 with Painting in Progress

Hello again:) I can't believe how slow I am in updating this and how time flies so fast. I hope it's been a wonderful start for you guys.

I'm still working on painting, of course, and let me share what I've been doing on my canvas so far. It's still far from final result.

I'm really not good at photography *grin*. It a painting from the sketch I made before with some adjustments here and there in the middle of working on it.

I just bought a children book illustrated by Nicoletta Ceccoli. She's a wonderful illustrator and her dreamy style always makes my eyes happy. I don't think I can afford to buy her beautiful artwork at this moment, so a beautifully illustrated book by her isn't a bad substitution:)

Oh, the one on the left is a signed Amy Sol card from her show at Copro Nason Gallery. Around a month ago, I put a comment on Arrested Motion's FB page. I didn't know that AM will draw a winner from the comments. Hung-Hei Yung, a nice guy from AM, told me that I was the winner and sent that adorable card. Lucky me...hehehe

Darling Heidi your girl is beautiful, what eyes.

I love Niccolini too.


Heidi Alamanda said...

Hehehe...I think we both have the same style, Renee. Nicoletta's artwork is wonderful.
Thanks for your feedback on my girl:)

Heidi Alamanda said...
