That is the saddest thing ...Najtužnije je....






" That is the saddest thing when you lose someone you love- that person keeps changing. And later you wonder. Is it the same person I  lost? Maybe you lost more, maybe less, there are thousand things that come from imagination and you don't know which is which, which was true, which is false". Amy Tan, The Kitchen God's Wife


" Kad izgubiš nekoga koga ljubiš, najtužnije je baš to što se ta osoba stalno mijenja. Kasnije se zato pitaš: je li to ista ona osoba koju sam izgubila? Možda si izgubila više, možda manje, deset je tisuća stvari koje ti naviru iz pamćenja ili mašte- a ti ne znaš što je što, što je istinito, a što lažno." Amy Tan, Žena boga kuhinje

  4. Hvala ti na lijepim rijecima za rodjendan. Da, bio je jucer... hvala od srca!
    Citat je divan... mocan, emotivan i tako istinit. Ilustracija je takodjer takva. Jako si realisticno prikazala neizmjernu tugu u njenim ocima...

  5. Baš si uspjela prenijeti taj osjećaj tuge i gubitka u očima, divno.

  6. Mislim da nisi mogla bolje da ilustruješ tugu iz citata. Ipak, nadam se samo da je tu u umetničke svrhe ;)

  13. Credo sia qualcosa a cui si può rispondere solo con il tempo. Il tuo disegno è bellissimo, gli occhi rispecchiano bene quelle parole. Buona serata Ivana!

  14. oh, sometimes we really expect too much from the people around us, so when they come short of our expectations we feel ourselves deeply unhappy and betrayed. But the truth is that we have just overreached ourselves. That is so right that a lot of things are just coming from our imagination, and we can't really claim to be objective.
    That painting looks so sad and sorrowful, probably it corresponds to your state of mind. In this case I just hope that things will sort themselves and the skies will clear for you, dear Ivana. God bless you, take care!

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

Inspired by..... Tijana/ Nadahnuta....Tijanom

Hi everyone! It's time for another Inspired by....post. The medium is acrylic on cardboard. This time I illustrated Tijana from fashion abejita. Painting lace is always a challenge and I'm aware that I have a long way to go when it comes to illustrating fabrics, but all things considering, I think I did pretty well. In fact, I'm quite happy with how this painting turned out. This outfit is a summery one, but it is suitable for Spring as well. Besides, green is in this Spring. 
Zdravo svima! Vrijeme je za još jednu Nadahnuta s...objavu. Medij su akrilne boje na kartonu. Ovaj put sam naslikala Tijanu sa bloga fashion abejita. Slikati čipku je izazov i znam da imam još puno toga za naučiti kada je ilustriranje tekstila u pitanju, no  kada se sve uzme u obzir, mislim da ova slika nije loše ispala. Zapravo,  poprilično sam zadovoljna s time kako je slika ispala. Ova kombinacija je ljetna, ali zapravo se može nositi i na proljeće. Osim toga, zelena je sada u trendu.

HOW TO STYLE BLACK CORD FLARES FOR AUTUMN? OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Are you wondering what fabrics to reach for this Autumn? Corduroy items are perfect for creating cozy autumn outfits. So, I'm assuming most of you (if not all) have at least one pair of dark (cord) jeans.  How to style black corduroy flare jeans for autumn? Today I'll show you an easy autumnal styling. When in doubt go for a black and white styling, for it always look elegant. Here I paired my dark cord jeans with a white shirt and a white blazer. This classic colour combo allowed me to play with accessories a bit. I made things more interesting by adding statement earrings and a scarf in the mix. I also wore high heeled boots for the extra elongating effect. Alright, I'm quite tall, but this combo makes me look even taller. Flare jeans can be so flattering, especially high rise ones.
THERE IS NOTHING NEW ABOUT THIS OUTFIT: SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES I've finished the Slow Season Fashion Challenge successfully. I didn't purchase anything last summer. Second hand it…

READING UPDATE & NEW BOOK REVIEWS: OCTOBER COUNTRY, WILD LIFE AND DIDO, QUEEN OF CARTHAGE

Time for another reading update. Today I'll review three books: a novel, a collection of stories and a play. The novel Wild Life by Molly Gloss was my first work by this author. October Country is a work by author I was already familiar with. In fact some of you might remember that I have a great fondness for Ray Bradbury. His Fahrenheit 451 is one of my favourite dystopian novels of all times.  So, I was happy I was able to pick up a collection of his short stories. Finally, I read a play by Christopher Marlowe. This is another author I was already familiar with (I did study English language and literature). I enjoyed Marlowe's version of Doctor Faustus myth, so I decided to see what his others works are like. So far, I read one and a half play but I plan to finish them all by the end of the month. I was also rereading Shakespeare a lot lately because that is always a good idea. I do upload most of my reading on goodreads so you can check my reading progress there as well. 

O…
