outdoors is for...

Lately i've been hanging out with a new friends and people who had the same (or similar) interest like me, paint landscapes and the cool thing is that we been together and going to public places to make studies, draws at outdoors and seriously is a very relaxing activity, i really really miss to do this, why i didn't do this before? i mean, i've been hanging out alone and never came to my mind to do this in different places and areas!! i went to the beach, forest and well, why i didn't do it? i guess i'm very shy or insecure, i try to carry a notebook to write ideas that pop up in my mind but well, is nice to hang out with friends and people.. 
anyway, my paintings and draws are quite simple, i guess i need to practice and do this more often and leave my shy attitude behind (if you do this, for sure you would have people that may probably approach you to see what are you painting...) anyway... this are a few views and some sketches....

here i go again...

Recently i just found out that some of my fav artist used to make studies of a particular image, object previous to it's artwork, at the moment when i see it in books or museums the artwork didn't make any sense of why they do this and not going straight to the canvas..?? but is more like the way they can work in this and reducing and exploring the possibilities of it prior to paint it, and yes, i used to thought that was a useless idea but is not, is really not, so i was thinking to work on some canvas, but i need to first have an idea of how some object would work on it, like colors, light and else... well, this is what i've been doing lately as part of my artworks....

Liebre Blanca

Exhibit my paintings and my art is a mix between fear and joy, is a weird mix, but i seriously feel like showing my thoughts and my feelings right straight naked in front of people with of course all the judgement of what i do and what i am... it suppose to give me strength and stay fearless but is still this sensation of panic... i told to my self that if i made a solo exhibition i rather prefer not to go to the opening because this overwhelming sensation and feeling to be in front of people explaining myself my creative process and all this kind of justifications that totally makes me feel in panic... before this exhibition closure, i was invited and with other girl (because it was just femme art..) i kinda explain myself my artworks, and it wasn't that bad although was just a few group... (even with that i was trying not to push the panic button..) i guess that i need to face this fear more often tho....

holidays....

i could lie if i told you that i can't remember when was the last time that i went to Isla Mujeres... but actually i do remember, it was just sibling trip, hanging out in the beach and we had a very badly sun burn here, the town was so changed since that last time... so i went back with my family and kiddos, to spend some days there, and well yes, nothing was the same but the beach and the waves was pretty the same... a wonderful nature! weather was perfect, everyday we were checking weather news and although it could be rainy and cloudy but it wasn't at all..
My nephews and nieces are bigger and gorgeous and well, what can i say about that... is just life! i would love to go back, i would love to travel more often and have this great time, forget all my problems and living life like that.... i just wish that...

before the year end....


Oh dear, this year is almost gone, can't say it was a bad year or good year, it was special in it's own way... i learned, i travel and many things happen around me and in my life... yes, i've got plans ahead, yes, i need to create and keep myself creative, learn to paint better, learn to sew better, learn and increase my knowledge in french and tough myself to keep doing the things i love and like to do...
But also, this is my last Etsy picks, i had a great year sewing and taking my chances with some vintage goodies... so this are my last selection for the year and i do really hope you like it :

after 9 days...

So this will be my 5th year working in the International Book Fair in my hometown with a illustration workshop for kids and oh boy! this was a pretty cool year... finally i made it without losing my voice although i'm exhausted! 
My workshop was pretty cool, i was using the concept of Silent Book that encourage kiddos to understand the meaning and importance of the images and illustrations, and also, they'll create their own short story using just ink and a white crayon... and yessss the crayon was the difficult part but eventually they'll worked perfectly!... i cheated a lil bit telling them that the crayon had a mix of magic and science... but the best part was hearing yelling! is magic! it works!!! no matter their age their reaction was pretty much the same...
And after working 9 days straight from 8am to 8pm, taking a tiny nap between some sessions i finally made it with my voice, had a great team, i meet awesome people, i also got 2 signed books and my debit card is kinda crying (i think i spend more than i did from the past years on books... ooooopsie...) so well, i've got plenty books to read the next year... and yesss! i hold myself to buy books that are not just novels and else, i kicked myself to make a step forward to other areas and matters that i must to read and i left behind and  of course i regreted when i'm in the big deep hole of the ignorance...

coco..

This is not going to be an spoiler alert, recently i saw Coco pixar movie and it was adorable and great! i do really thing that the filmaker and the creators achieve the idea of Día de Muertos festivity, remembering our beloved ones, not forget our roots, keep our traditions and being close to our family...
I went to the Disney and México exhibition that also include the Art of Coco, i do really enjoy it, i never thought that Walt Disney had some fond attach to the country, no wonder why the three amigos and other shortfilms inspired by our country was released so long ago...

If you had the chance to visit this exhibition, just go and see it if you were a kid ..
