Cafe Sabarsky.


Ink mostly. I used sparkly inks, it didn't scan, and other silver and gold shimmer canno't be seen here.

Israeli.

Ink and mixed media. Shimmering stuff I used, doesn't scan and gold glitter also doesn't show, but it's here. I met this young guy and we had interesting conversations, he recommended me few pretty sharp music groups, which I added to my iPod playlist. He is a modern young boy, but he knows how to talk to G-d. Amazing. Modern and ancient. Young and wise.

I got flowers.



I got flowers for March 8. I love Hyacinth, they smell so nice, so strong. Here is a painting I am doing for someone. It is far from being done. I will need some hint of wings. The cat died, so early, young, he was loved very much. 


I got myself some art materials to brighten up my day 

and start using it right away. Brush turned to be a bit too 

soft  for my liking, but inks are gorgeous.

Early morning sketch Upstate.


Was exploring shades of white and had fun mixing my pens and pencils early in the morning, around 6 am.



I used Wink of Stella pen by Kuretake, so the white is sparkling, but photo doesn't show it.

Selfie with the toothbrush.

It is sort of a self portrait. Artists look so serious when painting self portraits. I was not joking. I was thinking if my inner pain ( and artists always full of that inner pain, because they constantly searching for ways and answers, so I told my daughter don't ever get involved with artists, :) one in the family is more than enough), so if my inner pain is looking at me in the mirror.
I used ink and Kuretake on Arches paper.

Pumpkins.

Pumpkins. Experimenting on plastic paper. Pretty strange, ink doesn't stick to it, but I fought to the end, just to understand, I don't like it.

Glass and feelings.

Feeling pretty down sometimes and didn't keep up with posts and other things. Shouldn't be too hard...

to start being more active again.  Here is painting on a glass, where I can be free with color and use my imagination.


It is sort of floral.


Was pretty limited color palette, believe it or not. With bigger selection of colors possibilities are endless. Love doing it.



Playing with textures.

Bloody Mary.


One of the brunches with my daughter, we had the best "bloody mary" drink, it was a little bit unreal, for some reason reminded me the atmosphere of 60s, may be her retro dress and red lipstick?
By painting this I stopped the time and I can feel the sun on my skin, remember that turquoise Florida sky, hear clicking of glasses somewhere on the background. Anyway, I used ink and Kuretake and touch of Artist Pitt pens.
