No matter where you are is always great to give thanks!
A special Thank you, goes to the Band RiGNA FOLK for the great idea and suggestion to me, to create this video as combination of their music with my art. And I am honored that they let me use their beautiful music as soundtrack to my paintings! Thank you so much Viktor Nordir.
Who follows me for longer time knows that I love music, but also that I have a very specific and not so commercial taste and I love to introduce you with the bands I like or discover! I also have posted here on the Blog experiences attending live concerts, Interviews with independent artists and videos! I like to use my Art collaborating with music artists. I have created paintings and portraits dedicated to music artists as Fan Art! My collection is named “Art For Music” as an independent artist myself, I love when we can support each other or I can support someone else dream.
This video happened magically while replying each other comments on Instagram!
Viktor, frontmen of the band had this idea, while commenting on my recent paintings and I found it to be a awesome idea that I had to bring it alive!
I think the song I chose is “Zone II” from their album “Astropolis” and it match greatly with my Art.
On the Rigna Folk website you can read their Blog Post about this: Collaboration with two artists from the US and Macedonia
RiGNA FOLK is a band from Germany, we follow each other from a while now, I love their music and they love my art! I think is beautiful to cross paths!
They are a great indie band! I love their alternative, post rock music “Rigna Folk is a band that creates a parallel world. A rainy, dreamy world that, supported by music, is constantly changing and expanding: sound-painting like Sigur Rós, pictorially like Pink Floyd, as experimental as Radiohead”. They produced several Albums and their discography is growing more with a coming very soon new album!
Recently they performed a great cover “David Bowie, Space Oddity song” you can find it on their YouTube channel!
If you like this music genre, I really suggest you to check their music out!

I don’t like thinking about Christmas too far in advance.
But, a couple of years back, I got caught having to make most of my Christmas shopping very last minute, and I swore to myself “never again!”.
This year, I thought I would do something special. Since I’ve come to know many very talented artists through blogging, I decided I’d try to buy as many gifts as I can from their online shops!
That way, as I explained it to Chéri, we’d have lovely, handmade, unique gifts, coming from all around the world. On the plus side, we wouldn’t have to go through the trouble of fighting other Christmas shoppers at the mall, and we’d encourage wonderfull people to keep creating beautifull art!
So here are some of these incredible bloggers, and the link to their online boutique!

Day #27 – This day prompts were Little Deviland Climb. I don’t really like to paint devil’s images, but I made this one more thinking at a horned ethereal creature like a fantasy fairy or game character the color red obviously was supposed to be!
Day #28 – This is my choice for the prompt Villain my painting is inspired by the Disney movie “Maleficent” and she is Angelina Jolie in her character!
Day# 31 – This is my “Emily” character from the movie “Corps Bride” honoring Tim Burton with this prompt. I haven’t changed Emily character too much, but she has my style touch! This is last painting of this amazing month of October!
