2015 calendar - inspired by mothers and babies



My 2015 wall calendar is here to put smiles on your face :)
The entire calendar is inspired by mothers and babys featuring the most beautiful portraits I have made during the years, so it's a compilation of 12 of these paintings I have been doing for mothers around the world. And what can be more beautiful than love and painting love between mothers and childs :)

Check some of the images below.









I am super happy with the quality of the calendar, printed in a 250gr silk paper, the colors are really beautiful and bright. The size opened is a 11x16" or an A3, a perfect size to hang on your wall and make it really beautiful and inspired.

Family painting in progress


Sharing with you the creative  process of a family painting on canvas ( mother and son)

First step - I make a prayer calling my guides and set the intention to create what is better for this family, sending with my painting beautiful loving energy.
I start with collage and I use painted papers, oriental images and some tissue paper.


Next step - spread acrylic paint with lots of water to create a watercolor effect and made some natural shapes, like flowers and rain drops.


Step 3 - I look at the pictures that my customers provided and sketch their faces and bodies. In my background I found more natural shapes to adorn the painting, I make this decisions in a intuitive way.


I have painted the flowers and give a beautiful blue tone to the background and give layers of several acrylic colors and watercolor crayons until I was happy with my creation.

I already know that this mother and son loved the painting and I am so happy and honored to have this opportunity to create beautiful family moments through art.

Wishing you a happy weekend
