First, a huge thank you for all your enthusiastic comments about my collection of vintage Valentines, and for the Ribbon Rose Tutorial- hope you have fun with it!
Then, I have to catch up with a few promises I made on my previous posts... hope I'll make you smile with some drawings I made when a young girl! Thanks to my Dad I still have these and my pointe shoes (and other lovelies) as well!
Here is my very first professional painting LOL, oil on wood (at 3 y.o.)! I liked to keep company to my Grandfather in his studio while he was painting, and he used to give me the remnants of his colors... An art critic, who used to write about my Grandfather's art, came at home one day and saw it, and he told that he could read something really special in my little artwork (I was told by my Granny) and told her I was an artist :))). I'm soo glad my Dad kept all these treasures for me to enjoy when older.
A spring-y windy day, as it looks from the blowing pink clouds, blue sky and cheery flowers in the garden!
7 y.o ... I already loved chicks! Hehe
12 y.o. this reminds me of Sunflowers by Van Gogh...the flower shape and the vase (not the colors, actually).
Familiar landscapes in Italy... where I used to spend summer holidays with my Grandparents... 13 y.o.
14 y.o, that's me! At school they requested to draw a self-portrait, and this is what I made! Well, my passion for Nature and color (and oops- sweets too) is obvious!
Hope you enjoyed looking at them, as much as I did after many years! It was a stroll down memory lane... thank you Daddy!
