Hello there, this is my first entry from Slovakia, small town called Modra (in my language it means "Blue"). My studio is in my parent's house basement while my new apartment is late with being ready for me to move in. I have about 1 square meter of personal space, sharing room with my brother (oh lord), who watches horror movies behind my back as I write :/ I have to "suffer" these conditions for 3 more days before being able to paint.
It's December, isn't it wonderful? Probably the most peaceful month (or not?), when you drink warm punch, listen to carols, getting everything ready for Christmas Eve.. Still, trying to keep in mind that Christmas isn't about presents and not to waste this gracious spirit inside a shopping center
Best thing in the world is my parent's old piano, I haven't played in years!
Don't forget to send your loved ones a Christmas card
& enjoy this feature
SELMA TODOROVA / Bulgaria
Selma's portraits painted in oil are huge inspiration to me, but her skilled hand is capable of creating miracles in many other media. You won't regret visiting her gallery, full of light and tenderness.
Nostalgia wearing its colorful Sunday dress: no matter whether your interest lies within traditional, digital or manga/anime galleries, you will enjoy strong pieces from this one.
ANGELA RIZZA / United States
Intense stories, powerful colors, precise detail. Fascinating works by Angela Rizza are worthy of your attention in many ways.
