As you know I have been working on the little girls for some time now and have been inspired by them. I tried many different styles for their faces and wanted to make them original, cute and a bit comic. So I came up with big heads and huge eyes! I am anxious to hear your comments!!
I started painting in this tiny journal 4x7'' which I am enjoying immensely! I have been taking my tiny journal everywhere with me. Sunday mornings is my special journal day. Going out for coffee and journaling at the cafe, while the waiter discretely hovers over me to see what I'm painting. Anyway journaling is not common here in Greece. I must do something about that. teach journaling and show other artists how fullfilling it can be and most of all..healing..art therapy!!
More to come tomorrow!!

"People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
The School Boy
I love to rise in a summer morn,
When the birds sing on every tree;
The distant huntsman winds his horn,
And the sky-lark sings with me.
O! what sweet company.
But to go to school in a summer morn,
O! it drives all joy away;
Under a cruel eye outworn.
The little ones spend the day,
In sighing and dismay.
Ah! then at times I drooping sit,
And spend many an anxious hour,
Nor in my book can I take delight,
Nor sit in learnings bower,
Worn thro' with the dreary shower.
How can the bird that is born for joy,
Sit in a cage and sing.
How can a child when fears annoy.
But droop his tender wing.
And forget his youthful spring.
O! father & mother. if buds are nip'd,
And blossoms blown away,
And if the tender plants are strip'd
Of their joy in the springing day,
By sorrow and care's dismay.
How shall the summer arise in joy.
Or the summer fruits appear.
Or how shall we gather what griefs destroy
Or bless the mellowing year.
When the blasts of winter appear.
The poet William Blake was very uncomfortable and unexcited with going to school when he wrote this poem. My school boy on the other hand...was too eager to attend! He knew that every morning his sweetheart would save a seat next to her.
This is my entry for MMM .

MMM theme for this week is "my favorite things" and since I have been working on little girl paintings I made this one using various stamps, gel transfers and papers for the background. Daisy has been having a real bad attitude this week and for her punishment I replaced her with this little kitty!!!

It was surreal meeting up with my friend there. We both live in Athens, and she was visiting NYC for the first time and on her way back to Europe stopping in Frankfurt and me meeting her there!!

stores, one here in Athens and her flagship store in Paros. Most items in the store are handmade and organic, that she picks out on her trips from all over the world! I was walking by her Athens store one day, and I was mesmerized by the storybook design. It reminded me of a gallery for kids!! I'm so glad I went inside!

I had the most creative morning today! I discovered this cute cafe bar called "Pebbles" and spent a few hours painting in my journal. It was early in the day and I was the only customer there. Just me, my journal and jazz music playing on the radio!! Sheer heaven!

My painting is inspired by a very old church here in Paros. I made a photo tranfer of it and was quite pleased with it. Hope you like it! It's also my entry for MMM.
Next week I'll posting from....Frankfurt!! Can't believe my luck! Two beautiful trips in one week! My bestest friend is going to pick up an award for her company and make a speach and I'll be tagging along for..moral support,hehehe. Thanks Myrto :)) I'm thrilled about this trip, since I've never been to Germany before! And since all good things come in threes...please, please God let the next one be Milan or Paris!!
I send you my love, dear friend.
I'm so glad I was able to capture this picture with the donkey! The old man sells vegetables and fruits with a little help from his friend, mr.donkey!!
