It was about 2 years and a half since I didn't touch a brush!
Yesterday I felt like going back I can't believe how could I stay so much time without painting!
It was also my daughter first watercolor painting! I'm going to store it into her "memory box" like all her first "things" she did..

Painting is like pouring over your soul on a piece of paper.
Whatever you feel, it will show.
"I've been born" reading art books and being surronded by oil colors and paintings (my mum use to teach art), and I always loved to draw. But usually I was throwing them away.
Before my 20's I start to keep them, and so now I can see the difference between periods of my life.
For example, this is a drawing I made in my early 20's. I was not happy with my life I was looking for a change.
Here is a selection of middle 20's and beginning 30's. I was absolutely happy , enjoying myself and loving my life. I used to love painting with acrilyc, laying a lots of layers to achieve a very dense and compact full color.

And that's it my last watercolor. Still colorful but more calm and serene.
(still loving my life, but I'm now more relax!) (sorry about the bad light in the picture!)
