This year catholic and orthodox Easter is celebrated in the same day. It happens not every year. 
I find it to be wonderful. It is a good symbol of unity. 
Happy Easter!
Yet, I am still wondering: why the Bunny has to hide all those eggs?! 😉

Realism In Watercolor

Upcoming Easter was a good excuse for me to create a Nest With the Eggs in watercolor. I loved painting this symbolic artwork. Nest resembles a new life, a family, and a great new season.
And then, it is always great to add some colorful Easter Cards to my festive collection:

Right for the time of upcoming Valentines Day I have created a heart full of artworks that became a great addition to my Watercolor Silhouettes gallery. These semi-abstract paintings are airy and filled with combination of different complementing colors. 
I love seeing them in pairs placed next to each other in a light interiors:
These little creative hearts will serve as a wonderful thoughtful gifts as prints or cards for a loved one:

I See Squirrel – Children Book Illustration

Bernard Goes To Music School by Connie Du
Link to the illustration is HERE
In this illustration from the book Bernard Goes To Music School, I pictured the boy happily walking down the street and enjoying warm summer weather. The trees and bushes are in bloom indicating early Summer. The birds are in the sky. Way up on the tall tree branch I placed a squirrel eating the nut. Boy just saw the squirrel. But he is still here up to a big surprise: a little bunny is hiding under the bush. And how about a colorful butterfly?! In just a second it will take off and bring so much joy to the boy. 

All these elements of the illustration, including the road that vanishes in the atmospheric perspective, were composed the way that children, when they see the page and while parent is reading the text from the book Bernard Goes To Music School, kids will first see the boy, then their eyes will try to find a squirrel and of course they will discover bunny and the butterfly in a very short time. Yet after that they again will focus on the boy, the main character of the page and the book.

The illustration was painted, of course in correlation with the text on the page. The whole story is in the book on Amazon.com ( HERE ).
