It is of a fairy sitting on a violet flower. It is done in acrylic paint on 12"x12" wood. I do not have a title yet, but I will when it's done. 
I will post the finished product once done.

Country Style Living - Home decorations and colors!

Country Living at its best! 

  
Who says you can't have country decor in your city apartment!

Even though I live in one of the biggest cities, I have been in love with the feel and style of country living decor for some time now. 

The colors are so calming and relaxing. The blues and greens go so well together with touches of pinks and whites. 

Enjoy some images that I have found throughout the country living magazine. Maybe you will get inspired by them.

Back to Reality!

I have been on Vacation for the past week and went back home to Buffalo. I had my wedding shower and bachelorette party. Both where great and I had so much fun. 

Now it is time to get back to work and finish the painting I am in the middle of. It is a 12" x 12" painting on wood and is of a fairy and flowers. 

I will post the finished product once done.

Happy Memorial Day!

Inspiration from one my Favorite Childhood Character - Snow White

People always ask artists where they get their inspirations from and I am no exception. All artists have their own unique and special inspirations that they bring into their artwork no matter what kind of art they make. 

I often think back to all my childhood memories before I start a painting. I usually think about a story, a book, or maybe a character that I enjoyed as a child and still enjoy. 



One of my favorite characters of all time is Snow White and her inspiration is present in many of my paintings. This was the first Disney movie I saw and I remember singing all the songs with my dad, which could be a reason why I like her so much.

Snow White had fair skin (like me), big rosy red lips and cheeks, dark hair, and a headband. She also would always have blue birds and other animals surrounding her. 

Here are examples of my art with an inspiration from Snow White.
