Spring is the time to restart blogging ( and a freebie)

I’m so happy to welcome you all to my brand-(redirected from blogger)-new blog!

Tolstoi said that “Spring is the time of plans and projects”. And this sunny day inspires me to continue painting Bellysketcher’s maternity portraits.

I’ll do my best to show my work and plans around here. It’s not always easy, between pregnancy watercolors and baby portraits , and my own family, to find the time to say hello, but I’m determined to communicate with you by writing as I usually do with my family portraits.

And to celebrate the beginning of Spring and the future of our children I’m honoured to offer you this watercolor. You can download it, print it and use it the way you prefer. I’m sure it will look great on your kid’s room or even on the fridge door.

It’s a reminder of the future. It’s a Freebie – Free-bee to remembering us to take care of our world, if not for us, for our children. Honor the flowers, the plants, the bees (that are missed in some parts of our earth) and all thinks living.

I also would like to invite you to come over often. I promise a lot more of these. I’m already preparing a beautiful freebie watercolor task table for your little ones. It’s perfect for children to feel useful and confident.

In the meanwhile, subscribe 😉 and stay tuned!

See you soon!

What can I say. I was planning to wish you all happy ( not too stressful) holidays. But you you know what, mine were a little stressful between chocolate pavlovas and remoted controlled cars, and I was kept away from my studio for over a week. That was´t too good for my work plan and I’m trying desperately to get back on track.
So, with no more delays: Happy 2016
Today you can visit Gillian’s wonderful blog, and maybe you can find something familiar on today’s post ;). Gillian takes beautiful pictures and you can enjoy them by clicking on the link above or in her instagram.
I’m so blessed to do what I do, and get the chance to meet these wonderful mums around the world. For now we can only talk to each other though Skype. Hurray to Skype!

flowers, fresh and colourful flowers

Natália is a landscape architect. Flowers were, off course, indispensable on this watercolour.

I’m a big fan of flowers ( it’s a constante on my art). My studio is always  full of colourful fresh flowers. Every week I buy a bouquet and it adds oxygen to my work space.

Sometimes I use them to inspire the drawings, some other times, I only rest my eyes on them. If I can give you any piece of advice about work, besides “do what you love”, would be, have a plant, or a flower next to you. That will bright your day even more.

João and Natália ( and Mia, the cat) are ready to know their baby boy.

Any doubts don´t hesitate on contacting us.
We want to hear from you.
