The eyes are the window to the soul...

People argue about the origins of this popular phrase and whether it is true or false. As a visual artist I have drawn and painted many faces and many parts of faces in my life and in my experience it is always the eyes that are the most expressive elements of human body. The eyes show not only temporary emotions like fear, joy, anger, but also the general state of human condition. They show the inner beauty of a person and whether that person is trully happy or not. 

I belive it is a good thing to take a few minutes and sincerely stare yourself in the eyes from time to time with a help of a mirror. What do your eyes tell about you? Are you doing your best in life or would you like to see yourself happier?
These short moments spent with your past and present life written in front of you are sometimes necessary to unlock the best of what your future holds.

Unlock the best of your 2015!

Merry Christmas

Santa Claus put the last one of the presents on his sleigh and squeezed a hat on his head. He looked up at a clear night sky and his merry eyes reflected  thousands of stars. He smiled. This was the time when human hearts shone brighter than the brightest stars. On this silent night they were filled with the sweetest melody known to the world - the melody of kindness.

May this melody always stay with you all :)
Merry Christmas!

I miss you so much :(,',',',

Today I write with my eyes full of tears. My most beloved rabbit died yesterday and words cannot express the sorrow I feel. With a bleeding heart I just want to say:

Farewell my dear little friend. Thank you for your love with which you filled my life. You made me smile, you made me laugh, you gave me comfort in difficult times. I hope I made you happy as much as you made me. I will always love you and you will always live in my heart.

I love watching squirrels in the park, when they are climbing up the trees to hide on the top branches, or chasing each other on the ground. Sometimes they come so close, you can even touch them. I never have, but I've seen a photo lately of a squirrel taking a ride on someone's rucksack :))) These cute little raskals can be very funny sometimes!

I've enjoyed every inch of this small study, from the tiny nose and shiny eyes to the tip of the bushy tail.

"Good morning, Daisies"

This is my latest illustration inspired by children's books. As the days become shorter and shorter, I begin to miss sunlight, so I've decided to make a picture that would fill my heart with light and make me smile all through the winter. 
I hope, you will feel the Sun's kiss through this little picture, too :)

See you all next week!

The funny thing is, after a whole gloomy week, the sun really did come out the next day after I posted this :)))

Sketch of Architecture

I've always loved drawing architecture. Even when I was just a child, I used to draw fictional interiors or architectural surroundings for my pictures filled with some fairy tale characters. I guess I felt a necessity to show that people move in space, in 3 dimentions, although I wouldn't probably say it that way back then :) But this problem was hugely intriguing for me very early on. And it still is today, even though I have much more experience now. I simply find great pleasure in making observations of this kind and playing with space on a sheet of paper.
