Happy Birtday sista!

Today is Andreina's birthday! My sister is turning 40 years old today and I think is super cool because she looks awesome and she she have 3 amazing kids! I don't know how she does it.
I wish I can be in Amsterdam to celebrate with her today.... maybe next year? ;) Woohoo!!!!


P.S: This picture was 6 years ago (I think) celebrating her birthday here in Miami.

Thanks for the comments regarding my nest head, sorry I mean my hair ;)
BTW, Mr. Harper didn't ask me to grow my hair, he just said he haven't see me with long hair, for that reason I decided to grow it just to show him why short hair rocks ;)

Ok... and talking about nest hair, guess what? I painted ANOTHER bird! Soo original, right?
Well, this is the deal. I feel I have been a little bit slow in the last month creation new artwork on canvas. I love paint, but sometimes I have other projects around and I don't have time to play with my paints and canvases. Some people maybe think I lost my "mojo" because I haven't create much in the past months, but it's no true. I have been working a lot in other things like more art for my licensing representative and commission work. But because I haven't made anything on canvas in long time, my hand and mind need to warmup. And instead of waiting for my mind to decide what I wanted to paint, I just took the easy way and painted something familiar. And thanks to that I start feeling the creativity coming back.
Love it ;)

And here the pictures of Bravebird...

Prints on canvas

I have been doing a serious research to find the best way to offer my prints on canvas. I have been looking for prices, sizes, materials, etc. One day I found a place with really fair prices and I ordered a couple of my designs to see the quality. I was really happy with the print, but the problem was in the stretched frame… I mean the wood wasn’t bad (well… wasn’t perfect either!) The problem was I had to stretch and mount the canvas. And I didn’t have idea how to do that ;S Yes, guilty… I’m an artist and I never stretched a canvas before. Well, I gave those pretty prints a try. Wasn’t difficult, but I wanted the canvas to be super duper perfect! I guess with practice I will “achieve” perfection (yeahhh right)

What you think?

Things I want to share...

I have tons of new things to share with you!

I was thinking after stitches on my thumb were out, I was going to be blogging and painting and creating a new world of things. I was sooo excited and happy on my way to the doctor last Monday. Well, things didn't work as planned. The doctor took out the stitches but my poor little thumb had a little infection :( sniff, sniff.. She gave me a few antibiotics and I went back home to "rest". Well, a few hours later my poor thumb was looking pretty rough and the wound start to open up a little bit. UGLY and SCARY. Went back to the doctor. Diagnosis, a no pretty at all infection :( And now I'm under the influence of a very heavy doses of antibiotics and trying to "rest" and wait to my thumb to heal. Today the wound is looking REALLY BETTER and I'm soooo happy about it!
Sooo... all these nice things I want to share with you, will have to wait until next week. But at least you can have a sneak peak.








Happy Thursday!

Time Off

I believe everybody in some point have to take some time off. A lot of people slow down on Summer and I think it's a great idea. I know I deserve and I should take some "slow down" days to plan, to rest, to enjoy a piƱa colada, etc... But looks like I never really can take time off without feeling guilty! I feel I have to be doing something all the time. And I know that is wrong... but well, want can I do? I love my "work" and sometimes I don't feel I'm working... to me it's fun.
And sometimes, doesn't matter how much you think you have to do, or how much you think you have to work... sometimes you HAVE to take a few days off, because you don't have other option...


Cute bandage, right?
I was planning to show you the six stitches I got in my right thumb, but I think the picture it's not cute at all.
Well... Time off until the doctor take out the stitches.
Enjoy the rest of the week!
