It was a nice cloudy & windy noontime and i  was a waste of time not to do an ink sketch/drawing of such a splendid setting. With mother's flowering plants blooming.

Beautiful mornings

Every "Me time" mornings after a

so don't be sad..

Today in a quiet sunny noon time whilst i was just about to start doodling on my new art journal book. A little birdy-birdy friend drops by in my room for a quick visit. I was so delighted by her/his presence and was inspired that i ended up this illustration. 

Hope you have a pleasant week! (:

on illustrator

A follow up digital art work in my experiments & discovery of  the Wacom drawing pen tablet.
This time working on adobe illustrator. In comparison to Photoshop work i did yesterday. I think it's more easy & smooth flowing work for me in vector rendering. Or perhaps just need more getting used to & lots of practice with this gadget. Though i am not dumping my good old comp mouse of course. Just catching up in this digi world of art expression. (: Enjoy your weekend!(:

Catching up

 It's never to late to experiment and try new things i supposed. Am a good old fashioned fan for comp mouse when doing digital rendering works. Thus my first work done in wacom pen/drawing tablet. 
Thanks to my bro for lending me this super cool gadget. Sure there will be more fun work to do with this.

It's Friday!! wahoooo!! :D Happy 4th of July to my US counterparts @ work.Have a safe and fun long weekend to you guys! :)

getting back and something Dutch

It's been a while since i work on my paintings. I have had some projects that's left unfinished..not new to me. :D Well for the busy week that has ended, i am glad to finish one of those oil paintings.  It's from my Dutch holidays, a visit at Prinsenhof in Delft with godfather way back couple years ago. I have had wonderful memories with it- especially the ones when godfather in his own special amusing quirky ways.. (:  did re-enact how the Noble Prince Willem van Oranje was being killed right @ the actual spot of the stairway of his residence. It's nowadays houses the Municipal museum. The old masterpiece paintings are totally grand and amazing. Wonderful memories i so much cherish.And it's always worthwhile to be getting back to painting again. 
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead!

i take it from grandma

When i was a lil' girl my late grandmother always reminds me that every woman should at least know how to do some simple sewing. She encourages me to learn the art of it. I could never be more than grateful enough for that gift she shared to me up to now. 
I have had a wonderful fun busy weekend hand sewing these art crafts. 

Carpe Diem! (:
