I made this print like a personal reminder. I consider myself a really grateful person because, honestly, I have TONS of things to be grateful. But sometimes I found myself a little bit grumpy because I have to work in some projects I really don’t want to do it. Today I try to switch my mind and be grateful to all the opportunities and projects I have. Maybe is a boring website for a really picky client, but I have to understand those opportunities,come to me to help me in some way to reach my ideal dream life ;)

This new print is in my Shop

My ideal life will be to spent every single hour of the day doing thing like theses little drawings. I made these last week

Or creating new things to share with other people. (click here to download the file)

Right now, I’m really grateful of all the project and opportunities I have … and hopefully, one day I’ll learn to say NO when a project don’t make me 100% happy. :)

Are those canvas wraps you have there?

Thank you :)
Yes Elizabeth, those are canvas wraps (6x6) I *LOVE* these little ones. I first paint the background with acrylic and after that I do my drawing with watercolor (or acrylic) and ink.

wonderful pictures/drawings!! My Mum was fond of saying 'count your blessings' ... when you do that, life doesn't seem so bad!!

What great projects you have been finalizing! I really love the print with the flowers... and I love the message on it. :)

By the way, the font you're using in your work is adorable!! Love it!

I know exactly what you say about being grateful. I deal with stuff that I'm not into, something that I have no interest, although I do enjoy my profession. But I want to do stuff for myself because that's when I truly feel alive.

Love the canvases and the print.

Oh my goodness, I am absolutely in love with your penwork and colors and patterns! Fantastic graphics.

Despite the upheaval in my life recently, I am filled with gratitude for the people who have touched me. Valentina, I wanted to thank you for the beautiful and sweet message you left for me earlier this summer. It meant a lot to me and brought me solace and strength. Thank you for your friendship.
