Fourteen. Cotman watercolor on paper

It was fourteen years ago today that I married Edison. I am very lucky to have him by my side :)

We celebrated yesterday with a bowling game and a nice walk around the lake on a warm Minnesota morning.

Fourteen circles on this mandala (white ones count too).

Patterns on my sketchbook

Patterns. Cotman watercolor on paper

I have been drawing these patterns on my sketchbook. They are inspired by the beautiful Talavera tile work that I saw in Mexico City's colonial buildings this summer.

The third one wasn't supposed to be like that. I made a mistake and it resulted in a different pattern :)

Hope you all have a wonderful week, thanks again for visiting my blog!

Gaudi Inspired III

Gaudi Inspired III. Watercolor on paper

I went back to the Gaudi Inspired theme. 

We had the first snow storm of the season this week, and I can see a change in the light because of all the white around us. It looks beautiful! 

Thanks for visiting!

Watercolor pencil on paper

My friend Wendy makes the most delicious chocolates and desserts. She asked me to create a simple and fresh new logo for her business. 

I made a simple drawing based on the fruit and leaves of the cacao plant.

By the way, I love the word cacao.. I used to be called Cacao or "Caocao" and then it changed to Cao or Cau :)

A mandala I painted over the weekend. I like the neutral color combination on this one..
