Girl and Bird and My Blog Anniversary and Merry-Go-Round

I like the details of the girl's face and made another one for the design. I love the soft colors and the peaceful expression in her face.

Blog Anniversary

Today is the anniversary of my blog. I started this blog last year. Wow, a year past, it is really fast.

It's a long journey to me since I started to learn painting in 2006. I still remember in the first day of watercolor painting lesson. I used a plate that has a slop to mix watercolor paints. My teacher looked at it and just shook his head and sighed. I had no idea why he was so unhappy about my plate. I didn't know at all that the colors all flew to the bottom of the plate and mixed together to become a pile of mud.

Along the way, I had my baby and only started to paint full-time from last August. I painted in watercolor, acrylics and oil. Later I picked up digital illustration. I love oil, but because of its smell and a baby at home, I think I let it go at the moment.

I made a 225 posts for the year. I tried to post every day except weekends and the days when I was on holiday in China where blogs are blocked for accessing. The good thing is that I grew more and more interest in painting and illustration. I hope to have more ideas and beautiful works in the future.

The most important thing is that I have learned more and more about art. I also get to know some of the great people that produce beautiful work through some art communities such as Etsy, Dawanda, Redbubble and blogs.

Most wonderful thing is the feedbacks from my customers. I am so happy that they are happy.

Hey Lily!
I loooove love that oainting. The eyelashes, the expression, the arms and hands, the bird and flower.. everything!

Congratulations on the first birthday. It is a long process until one understands and evolves into ones way of art. And, as far as I know, the evolution keeps going on until we die.

Congrats again!
