Blog Hop and space give-away on Ever After e-course


There is new collaborative e-course coming up on 1st of July, on the theme of fairytales, run by Tamara Laporte – “Ever After 2016”, and I am a one of collaborative teachers. A dream come true! And not because collaborative on Tamara’s e-courses feels like winning a Noble Prize to me, but because I am honestly madly hopelessly inevitably crazy about fairytales. That’s why I made myself Tallulah, so that I could have an excuse to read fairytales at bedtime every night. Ok, last part is not true, Tallulah has a happy OOOPS! (but winning the Noble part is true – I swear!) To get to the most important part of my babbling – you can win 1 free spot on this e-course, that I am entitled to give away!

Do you know what Blog Hop is? If you don’t, it works like this. Each day hop to the blog of a collaborating teacher (list below), read what their conditions for winning is, comply with conditions, hop to the next blog next day, to do the same. You can up your chances of winning a space by entering all the other teacher’s giveaways. 12 chances to win is very cool! :)

The Draw Is Complete: The random winner is - Sandra Schmidt! Congratulations Sandra!

Art exhibitions can be virtual.


As artists we are all dreaming to someday being able to hold our own solo exhibition. It’s a big deal. More for telling yourself that you did it, than for the money’s sake.  I never really researched the possibility of doing real life exhibition, until I was offered a virtual one. Whaaat? Auctioneer Stephanie Gagos took a chance on me and offered to do online solo auction of my art. Fortunately I have a tendency to create large body of work quite fast, put some on etsy and forget about the rest. So there was a lot to choose from. Stephanie selected about 12 originals and 12 reproductions, plus I painted few more specifically for the auction, and we scheduled it for 9th of February as a Facebook event, which is coming up in just 6 days. We have about 193 confirmed attendees so far. Any 7 of you that would like to make it a round number?  :) Am I nervous? Of cause I am. The biggest fear there is and always was for all of us is that no one would show up. I almost imagined the echo of my virtual steps in my empty virtual gallery…… Brrrrr! Nope, I prefer to hope for the best, thank you very much.  :)

To those of you who haven’t heard of it yet, here is a chance to see really LARGE stock of my art in one bunch, in all sorts of sizes, mediums and styles. Plus some might go for a reasonable opening bidding price, so do pop in if you are curious or would like to owe a piece:

Below are some of the original and reproductions that will be offered for bidding on 9th of February:


Chat to you later again, and if my ego would get a serious crush, don't worry I'll be back with more art and more of everything else. Because "art goes on", and we cannot stop it can we?
