I am so sorry I haven’t written a Blog post in a pretty long time!
Life events kept me busy, how the Summer is going?
I hope it find you all well!
I want to thank to all the new followers that came to this Blog lately and decided to follow my journey, thank you so much!
I hope that you enjoy my art in all the different ways I like to express my creativity. At this moment I am also redesigning the look of this Blog, soon you will see it with a new look and layout. In addition will have included a new section with my own new “Shop” where you can purchase my Art and Limited Edition Prints directly and exclusively here only. These are last days that My Etsy shop is running! I will not sell anymore over there, when my new Shop is up everything is done here! 🙂
I have been very busy during the months of June and July with several interesting projects. I have created the Tribute painting of Scottish music artist Scott Hutchison that sadly and unexpectedly left this world last May. I had a wonderful response from all the loving fans to the band Frightened Rabbit when I have released the painting available in Limited Edition Prints. I thank them all! For who missed my previous posts about this, here there is a little recap and excerpt from one of my posts.
“My painting it is a Tribute Portrait dedicated to Scottish music artist “Scott Hutchison” this is a very emotional painting created In Loving Memory of Scott (20/11/81 – 10/5/18) R.I.P
Scott Hutchison was a wonderful music artist from Scotland founding and primary songwriter of indie rock band Frightened Rabbit
This painting is my humble contribution to honor Scott soul and to raise awareness on Mental Health and suicide prevention. Scott Hutchison left our world last May 10, 2018 at age of 36. Struggling with the demons of depression. He never hid his suffering, but translated his feelings using his alienation in words creating songs that touched the heart of many around the world. He always reassured fans who reached to him about their problems that “there’s always hope”.
❤I will Donate a portion of the proceeds of my Limited Edition Prints in “Scott Memory” to UK SAMH “Scottish Association for Mental Health”.
Thank you so much in advance to anyone that already did, and who will decide to purchase one of these unique prints, your support means a lot and can help to give “Tiny changes while here on Earth (Scott words)”.
I loved the beautiful response of the amazing fans and they kept me really busy preparing all the Prints for their orders. I had wonderful feedbacks and I am happy that through my painting I am able to relief a little of the sadness and pain in so many hearts and keep up the strong legacy that Scott left here.
All this kept me very busy. This year I had no time to participate to “The World Watercolor Month” sorry Charlie doodlewash I was only able to post few paintings during July but it’s all good, The past two years I have participated and completed the challenge to paint daily for 31 days and I loved it, because gave me the opportunity to create new collections of paintings, this is a great way to create new material for your portfolio using a challenge for inspiration, especially for new artists or beginners this is an advice I can give to whom is in need of inspiration to create, follow a challenge and make it yours.
But I also have a nice news, because during July I have submitted few paintings on Instagram to the Pentalic365 challenge and I am so honored to be the Winner for the month of July see their post Pentalic365
❤ ❤ During the past months I lost two wonderful pets they went over the rainbow bridge, I was very sad to loose Rocky a rescued Chihuahua and my loved Yumi a wonderful and amazing rescued Possum!
