the 100 faces of Arabella

Sometimes I get obsess in love with a drawing. And I draw it like million times in different ways.
For example. One day, I saw a cute little cow and I decided to make a canvas with that face.
First, I painted the cow with acrylic on a 10x10 canvas.


I added ink and Arabella was born!


I love her soooo much and I wanted to make a print, but because she was painted on the canvas (color ready, etc) I could scanned to create a print.
Sooo... I draw it again on water color paper and after that I scanned and added the color on illustrator. And I made a print for my Etsy shop.


I loved the blue background. I really liked but I felt she needed more color. I decide to take the original drawing and star adding some funky "my style" flowers.

After finished all the flowers, I scanned again and colored again and now Arabella is super happy living within flowers ;)

What do you think is better, the plain blue background or the funky flowers?

Happy Spring!

Somebody told me it's Spring already! Really? I didn't have idea because I live in Miami and we usually skip the most important seasons :S
Well, lets pretend is Spring here, and I'm going to do a spring cleaning and picnics and put in the closet all the winter clothes (that is a big joke!) and celebrate... painting ;)

Meantime, while she is grows...

Well, it's happening. I'm going to have a baby girl in just 5 months!How that happen? (yes, don't worry I swear I know how that happen). Time is going fast, super fast, and of course, I'm freaking out a little bit. I have to many things to do. I have like 3 millions plans and goals to follow. I'm super anxious thinking in how my life is going to change in August, and I cant wait and I the same time I want to to stop the time right now ;) Sounds crazy, right?
The last weeks have been a whirlwind of activities and work and plans and dreams. And time is passing soooo fast. I think it's time to stop planning and dreaming and just start working before we welcome our daughter.
I made a basic list of the things I really want to accomplish in the next 5 month. Soooo... while she grows, I will:

while she grows...

Happy weekend :)
