These roses are so much fun to paint! Easy for people that have never painted one, and still perfect for those with more experience that want to add a little whimsy to a new painting.
I think my favorite is the orange.

I painted it in an art journal page but it can easily be done on canvas.
Since this post is posted in December, I want to wish you a warm and happy Christmas full of love. Thanks for visiting!

For a few years now, I have been running a fun and cute heart challenge. Find or create hears in July. You can make one a day, but as many as you can are fine too, the thing is to looks around and see if we find hearts in Nature or we can creat them as well.
Here are some I made in a page, I hope you enjoy the process! I used collage, washi tape and Lumiere acrylics.
Here it is! A totally free and awesome Mixed Media series. I call it 10 Little Treasures and it starts as a blank space and goes through the process of paint, collage, 3D objects and ends with Encaustis. And for those that prefer it I made some with Faux encaustic as well!
Grab a glass of something cool if you are in the north, or a cup of something warm if you are in the South hemisphere this July, and prepare to Binge! ٩(Ͼ‿Ͽ)۶ Watch HERE

Acrylic painting, Mixed media, tutorials for painting cute faces and tons of flowers!
In these videos I show how to paint skin tones with acrylics, how to paint hair with acrylics too, for beginners and for fun! Every face is a different skin tone and different hair style.
Here are faces 4, 5, 6:
Seems like the great majority of people are doing the 29 faces in social networks rather than the blog, which is OK, but I hope the blogs don't get totally neglected, I have been enjoying so many for a long time! Tell me how you are doing with your faces if you are participating ♥
Sorry if my blog is a bit dusty, so many things going on at the same time, something's gotta go, right?
Well, this is my first face of this beautiful month of February, and I invite you to join HERE to participate as well!
Have fun, practice your new or old skills and meet artsy people from all over the world!
I'd love to hear from you ♥ I hope you join us in the blog or in the FB group ♥
Word of the year... should you get one? Do we need one?
Same as "new year's goals" if it will be hard to reach, if you are not already in the path towards the goals... you will fail and it will make things worse.
I like to keep things simple even if life keeps throwing complications. I am in the path of keeping baby steps in the direction I love, which is art, sharing art and.... finishing the kitchen renovations!!
My word for this year is: (roll drums!) Magic.
We all need magic in our lives, and it requires a lot of it sometimes, just to keep going!
I want to use my own magic to create more art, more videos and I want to wish you to find your own magic. You have it inside! The best for you in 2018! Lots of Magic, Pixie dust and Glitter! (vacuum cleaner included) lol
