It's important to know where you're going

It is more important to know where you are going

It is more important to know where you are going than to get there quickly.” – Mabel Newcomber   I love this quote and the message it sends. It’s true. We need vision and clarity to know where we are going before putting the foot outside in the big world. I wanted to keep this page simple, with no drawings, just words. The face on the left is one I did a while ago. Using neocolors 2, I created a random background on the other …

GRATITUDE - things that we take for granted, someone else is praying for. - page by Cristina Parus @ creativemag.ro

The things you take for granted someone else is praying for

Most often than not, our busy lives prevent us from looking around at the little things that bring us joy. Being in a continuous state of disatisfaction and disappointment is what keeps us blindfolded from not seeing what’s right in front of our eyes: life ain’t that bad.

So why not draw and paint it in my art journal?  Exista aproximativ 110 specii recunoscute, floarea de fucsia arata ca o balerina cu mai multe picioare. Este gratioasa si delicata, atarnand cu capul in jos cu coloritul sau uimitor. Aceatsa floare …

The Lotus Flower

Drawing with colored pencils is just so much fun! I was inspired by a photo found on Pinterest for this lotus, and again I’ve used Prismaclor pencils to complete this drawing. Only that this time I haven’t blend the color with oil, leaving the drawing as it is. I don’t have photos in stages with this flower, as it was a fast drawing and I completed in no time.  Desenatul in creioane colorate e atat de distractiv! Pentru aceasta floare de lotus am fost inspirata …
