Elephants, bunnies, princess and air balloon

I can't believe I managed to paint 11 paintings in about 3 weeks time... and although it is a huge amount of custom made paintings I gave a bit of my heart and soul to each of them :D

An orignal painting for a gift

I just made a short break to write my Monday blog post while I left one of the paintings to dry so I can continue with it...
It is a bit stressful as I need to finish 6 more custom ordered paintings and few more smaller things in less then a week but I am looking forward to hear happy thoughts and smiley faces when people receive them as a gift.
It is great that the weather in Doha is nice so I can be at my balcony, enjoying the sun and light. It is a huge difference painting in a good daylight and painting in my studio when it's dark outside :(

Here are two of my recent custom ordered paintings:

Last week I participated in two events:
Ritz-Carlton's Christmas Tree Lightning Ceremony and Little Christmas Market and MIA Park Bazaar.
Both events were outdoor and they were really nice. I liked the atmosphere, the weather and getting feedback on my work.

Thank you all for coming!!!

Here are few photos from the Ritz-Carlton's Christmas Tree Lightning Ceremony and Little Christmas Market:

and few from MIA Park Bazaar

See you on Monday at my blog :))) as I am not participating in any event until the end of January 2015.

Messy art studio

You would not believe me if I told you how messy my studio looks like. I am working on the floor, on the table... paints, canvases, papers are all around plus I am on my laptop non stop replying emails and messages.

This is a sneak peak of what is going on over here :)

New! Hand painted toys and dolls

Hello my lovely friends!
I am sorry for not posting anything for 3 weeks, it was busy over here.
I started a new line of hand painted cuddle toys and dolls and was working on few custom orders plus I had two markets to prepare for.

I really enjoyed making hand painted cuddle toys and dolls and I am planing to make more this week.
They are painted with fabric colors and can be hand-washed. Back side is not hand painted, only the front.

I was planing to stop with markets and bazaars as I have lots of custom orders to finish before I leave for my Christmas vacation to Croatia but then I've decided to be present at 2 or 3 more markets :DDDD so you can find me on 3rd December from 4-6,30pm at the Ritz Carlton's Christmas Lightning and Little Christmas Market in Doha.

Another Market

This time of the year is really busy for me... lots of markets, bazaars and custom orders. Sometimes I wish I can clone myself :DDD

This Saturday I was at the Museum of Islamic Art Park Bazaar.

My table at MIA Park Bazaar in November 2014

In the beginning I was melting in the sun,  it was 35 degrees but later on it started cooling down with a bit of a nice breeze. Unfortunately, the part where I was located at didn't have lights so after the sunset my table was in complete dark and I had to pack my stuff before the bazaar finished. Anyway, I had a really good time. I love being outdoor and this is the perfect opportunity plus I can hear the feedback from the visitors. Thank you a lot for visiting my table and showing your interest in my work :D Thank you all who left their contacts, I have already added you to my mailing list so you can start receiving my cute emails.

My next market will be at Virginia Commonwealth University on 15th November where they invited only Doha-based makers of art, design and craft plus their students and alumni to showcase their work. I am so happy they picked me to participate in this market and I am really looking forward to it!!!
Hope to see you there too!!!
