Title or Location:
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

Title or Location:
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: Vibrant Macaw
I have always adored the vibrant color palette of the Macaw's feathers for many years. This is my first attempt at painting this species of bird, and it was a fun learning experience.

Title or Location: Chula Vista - Sunset View Park
Taken at local park as sun was setting. The light as the sun was setting reminded me of a painting from a tutorial I had previously worked on. It was reminiscent of the French countryside and was something that looked so peaceful.

Title or Location: Gracie
I find painting dogs very interesting because their appearance is so varied. This golden doodle is from a friend's photo of her pet Gracie. I painted a loose background in watercolours then painted negatively to pick out the wavey and curly areas of her coat. Gouache picked out some lighter areas. I find painting without a drawing creates a looser result. I start with the nose and measure from there.
