So Many Styles, So many Mediums!!

I am finally starting to settle down and have a little fun with my art again. I had a tumultuous 2 months. It basically ended with my family and I moving with other family, most of my possessions being stolen, the mold that became the reason to move out of my old home being the culprit for having to take a much needed health vacation. Asthma is no joke. Neither is bronchitis.

Not to mention a court date because my ex thought he was paying way too much support. Because I am so famous. *Cough* SARCASM *cough*

Seriously, I thought I had been cursed. I wasn`t done with one before another problem started. Let`s just say, I am recovering well, we are looking for a healthy home and the judge told my ex: "You realize you don`t even pay the minimum of what you should be paying and I can order you to pay the whole order!"  and "she is being nice to you by cutting you a break!" and "You have no legal recourse, just keep paying as ordered". There are transcripts so I am hoping to read soon. It`s quite a novela, but with uglier actors.

But not me though, I`m easy on the eyes. :D

Surviving this changed me. I developed a sense of humor, I wand to experiment with art and take more risks. I felt like I was punched in the face, shaken awake and now... I know have wind in my sail to continue to produce artwork to please me. After all, if I don`t love it, who will?

Thanks for your support and love!

Hello Gouache! Feminine Fashion illustration

I recently got reacquainted with an old friend. Met in high school, lost touch. You know how it goes. But I never forgot! 
Gouache is what we used to use when we made a huge mistake with watercolor. Never explored it further than that. Now, it has become my new favorite, along with color paper.
Trying something new can be scary but very rewarding it you get the right results.
I have 1k pictures in my iPad and most are little paintings and the latest ones in gouache. The medium is worth the investment and if you know how to buy them you won't break the bank. The paper was also fun to explore. I recommend Fabriano Italian watercolor paper!
