My favorite things

The  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!!!

new inspiration

I love going back to my old journals and looking at the progress I've made. I've noticed that in all my journals the last pages are always different in style and design than from when I began. It's like telling me to move on to something new. I have always wanted to draw little girls and keep experimenting on different styles and faces and can never decide which ones I like the most.. I think this is a Pisces trait..can't make up my mind, plus I get bored easily doing the same stuff. Anyway, I found this one page I really liked back then and when I saw it again this weekend it inspired me to paint a little goth girl on a t-shirt.
I've gotten so many compliments on my t-shirt, I think I'll be making more in the future :)

play things

Hope you are  having a great summer!! After my two trips, I'm back to the canvas again, this time working on two different bodies of work. One will be a new series of paintings inspired by..circles.. Don't know how that happened yet, but I'm sure it will click and reveal its self along the way.. The other,  is a series of little girl paintings, for my new account the the cherry on the cake.  
The first thing that came to mind for my  MMM entry is a a little girl on swing.. remember those days?...carefree, not a worry in the world..
Have a creative week my friend!

When I think of the colour blue, the first thing that comes to my mind is the Greek sky and the Aegean sea...and since I was vacationing in Paros recently, my painting is inspired by that. It is also my entry for MMM.

This has to be one of the most exiting week ever! First the Greek island Paros and now Frankfurt! Two completely different places to visit. Paros with the whitewashed houses and laid back almost primitive island and then Frankfurt with the most incredible architecture!
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!!
This is the amazing view from our hotel room. Overlooking the Main river.
On the day we arrived,  Germany won against England at the world cup soccer series. I was so lucky to watch the game with the German people and join in the celebration that went in all evening! Thousands of cars were honking and church bells were ringing  non stop!!  We watched the game by the river with more than one hundred people, where they were selling bratwurst and beer! it was so festive!!
This is Romer square, it was within walking distance from the hotel and had the cutest cafes and stores. My dad used to bring me dolls like these from his trips..

Romer square.

When we used to live in New York City we owned a restaurant called "Oscar's Salt of the sea" so I got exited when I saw this bistro...

I took this pic, because I love strawberries :)

And this one.....the best picture of all!!hahahaha now is that luck or what!!
