– Winter Wonderland – Day 9  FIREPLACE

Winter Wonderland 31 Days 31 Paintings Challenge!!!
Today following December prompt list it’s time for  “FIREPLACE”  I am joining Charlie at  doodlewash

For this painting I wanted to put together the atmosphere of a cozy fireplace ready for the Holidays! Who doesn’t love to be near a magic fireplace and relax with the sparcking flame, it is the perfect way to warm up a cold Winter and to release your stress! A teddy bear, colored stockings, the Christmas tree all comes together for  happy and joyful moments drinking a hot chocolate at the fireplace. What a better vignette to have all these lovely things in one place and see the cute teddy bear enjoying it all! I wish you all to have beautiful moments when near a fireplace!❤
For this painting I also used a gold pen on the Christmas tree and the lettering. I was able to take the photo to show the gold, I hope you can see it!🙂

Details about my watercolors:
 watercolors are outlined with black, white and gold ink pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle 12 demi-godets half-pans travel metal box  Ink pens used  Pigma Micron Black ink #02, brown #01, white Uni-ball Signo gel pen and a black ink  Pilot Prera fountain pen fine nib . A touch of gold with a Gold Gellly Roll by Sakura  I painted on a small 3.5 x 5.5 inches mixed media sketchbook.

How a “Broken” Heart Can Make Me Happy!

So happy that my painting “Broken” found a special home…Thank You so much Erika!❤

Erika Kind

20161130_091822

That may sound strange but I am talking about Carolina’s beautiful painting Broken from her InkTober 2016 collection. I ordered her artwork from day 9 and it is simply beautiful. But it is not only the painting itself which made me smile and warmed my heart. It is her way of creating a lovely energy around it. As you see it on the picture, she packed it surrounded with beautiful messages, an official certificate, a thoughtful card, and a lovely dedication on the backside of the painting. This is typically Carolina. Whatever she does, she does with all her heart and that is what we feel when we see any of her creations. If you don’t know her blog yet then please head over to YesterdayAfter.

Thank you so much for your lovely way and for your friendship, Carolina!

In Love and Light
