This is a love scene that is inspired by a Chinese show I am currently watching: The forbidden flower. I took it as an opportunity to expand my knowledge and learn how to draw two whole bodies profiles and practice on how to draw a hand for the fist time! The most difficult part was to find the exact distance for her hand to fall into his. I hope it evokes love to all of you. Many friends have requested a follow up to this Confession saga, so I am currently working on The Answer to The Confessio

Title or Location: Indian Trail, NC
At the age of 49, I decided to learn to paint. I have never even sketched or painted in my life. I love watercolor paintings so I started with that and I found that I love it. In February I committed to the 100 Day Project movement with D. Michelle Perry on her 100 Days of Wonder group. Each week she was giving us our Words of Wonder for each day. Day 35 was "Dew". I had already practiced water droplets for fun so I wanted to use them in a close up image of a leaf with dew on it. Th

The forbidden flower was inspired by the show of the same name. The drawing reflects a lady very much in love. At the beginning she experiences a childish love that grows, with time, into the love of her life. I love to paint love stories because I believe most of us can relate to them. Sometimes I write those stories in my Poems and Thoughts book and I insert my drawings there. I do have a facebook page Junk journaling on a budget with Valyart00 and a youtube channel Valyart00 where I sometimes

Title or Location: Valy?s cottage
The watercolor is a depiction of Valy?s cottage, a magical place back in the woods of my house where I work and also create art. This is my favorite place in the whole world! The words I used to go with this painting were inspired by the flowers and greens from my back yard and how I learnt the appreciation of nature through my dad, who always had great respect and admiration for the birds and plants from his backyard.

Title or Location: Yellow Belly Woodpecker
I created this Yellow Belly Woodpecker as I keep a portion of my "Just Because Journal" dedicated to paint in watercolors the birds that I see in my back yard. It is a fun way to learn their names and some important features and it also gives me the opportunity to to observe them more in detail so that I can translate their unique beauty on the paper.I was born in Argentina so I still have to learn a lot about the different and colorful variety of birds that North Carolina has to offer.

Title or Location: Fonte Pequena, Alte, Portugal
Alte is a village in the Mountains above the Algarve in Portugal. I visited the village to sketch the natural springs and bathing pools, which the village is famous for. The crystal clear waters of the pools, the stone and white painted buildings and the bubbling springs provide many opportunities for sketching and painting. A great day there and lots of inspiration for future paintings.

Title or Location: Relax and Feel the Calm
This is a water color painting based on a photo I took last year when visiting MT. Love the wide open spaces and the beautiful sky. This photo was taken while sitting and relaxing along a river in Bigfork. Love to enjoy the views and then incorporate into my paintings. Water colors are such a great choice for landscapes because of the way they flow and blend together just like nature.

Title or Location: Cheerful Cardinal Upon a Teacup
I painted this cardinal happily perched on a teacup as a reminder. Through all of the stress and busyness of life it is so easy to get caught up in overthinking and ignore the small beautiful moments all around us like savoring a warm cup of tea, or noticing a tiny vibrant bird outside our window. 9x12 Watercolor
