Africal elephans (oil canvas) / Afrički slonovi (ulje na platnu)


oil for canves, not for sale/ ulje na platnu, nije na prodaju

This painting is a gift for someone. I thought I had finally finished it on NYE, but now I'm not so sure....maybe it needs a bit more work?

Ovo platno je dar za nekoga. Mislila sam da sam ga konačno završila na novogodišnju noć, ali sada nisam sigurna...možda  ipak treba još malo dotjerivanja?

  2. i think this painting is already great Ivana! But if you really want to enhance it, perhaps you can add more details? But I really think this is very nice already. :) Anyway, in rely to your comment in my last post:

    awwww. you're the sweetest Ivana! Thank you for this comment. I really do appreciate your words. I will always keep this in my mind and heart. Well, we do no really control our life/time and it's just so sad that I only had 19 years to spend with my cousin. Everything will be different from now on and it will take a while before everyone in our family finally accepts that he's gone physically. We just miss him so much. But the memories and the love he had showed us will forever be in our hearts. Let's never forget our loved ones who had left us too soon. Thanks again Ivana and I wish you all the best this 2015. Continue sharing your art to the world! Happy New Year and God bless! :)

    1. I will probably be adding some details tonight:)

      Yes, things will probably never be the same, yet we must always be grateful for the time with had with the loved ones and give them homage by trying to live a good and fulfilled life.

      Thank you for your sweet comment!

  15. Did you draw it all yourself? It's very good!!! I think the picture is great, but it would look better on a wall, the tablecloth in the background makes it looks like it's too colourful when I am sure it's not.. Happy New Year, Ivana!!!

And for me it looks finished but I don't have they eye of a realy artist like you :) It was such a pleasure for me to read that you had a good and optimistic feeling on the first day of this New Year. Hopefully you feel still in that way <3 For sure I wish you still the best for the New Year and that all the issues in your life will be solved very soon.

  38. Hello Ivana, the painting looks complete to me and I wouldn't have known which oart was incomplete if you hadn't mentioned that it was incomplete. It is nice to gift someone a handmade gift coz that takes time and effort and is definitely very valuable. Thank you for your long comments and sharing with me more about food culture in your region. I've not been visiting blogs for so long that I feel like I'm missing out on a lot. I will be catching up on your posts now.

TWO WAYS TO STYLE A SCARF (SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES)

Today I'll show you two ways to style a scarf: one is by wrapping it around your headband and the other by using it as a belt for your dress.  I'm also going to link up old posts with more ideas for styling this scarf, offering you about a dozen ideas. The first idea is a common one. Wearing a belt around your dress is an easy way to accentuate your waist. The other outfit proposal shows a fresh styling trick: wearing your scarf wrapped around your headband. Yes, you read that right. This is actually such an easy way to make the most out of your headband(s). I own only one headband but by wrapping different scarves around it, it seems like I have a dozen of them.  As for the two outfits I'm going to show to you, they are both summer ones. The colour palette for these looks is pretty neutral, but I jazzed it up by choosing printed white items. I do like the freshness that the white colour offers, but as a lover of prints I tend to compromise by opting for printed white ite…

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: ILLUSTRATED TOTE BAGS REDBUBBLE

I don't know what it is about the combination of tote bags and fashion illustrations that I like so much. Maybe it is simply a matter of combining two things that I love. I adore tote bags for their practicality, I like to carry one with me (often tucked in my regular bag) at all times because you never know. We all know that the typical disposable plastic grocery bags are a huge no-no for the environment, so a tote bag is a must (even if just for grocery shopping).  I personally like to wear tote bags even on occasions that have nothing to do with grocery lists, but to each his own. As for fashion illustration, well I don't have to explain that. I have literally loved fashion illustration for as long as I can remember. Joining my creative skills with tote bags seemed logical! Some of you might remember that I even hand painted some vintage tote bags. In fact, you had the chance of seeing one of those tote bags recently here. As much as I enjoy using textile prints, I also li…

SUMMER TO AUTUMN OUTFITS FEATURING A VINTAGE BLACK MAXI DRESS

Today I'll show you seven ways  to wear a black maxi dress. This beautiful vintage dress was gifted to me by a family member. I don't own many solid black maxi dresses (probably because I'm addicted to bold prints and colours). I do own quite a few little black dress (because a LBD is such a classical piece) but not that many black ones in maxi length. In fact, I believe this is the only plain black maxi dress I own. I find it really easy to style. I treat this maxi as a neutral piece and I wear it all year round. I actually added embroidery to it (it's a hobby of mine) but the embroidery detail isn't that big (for now) so I tend to style it as a plain black dress. By that I mean that I like to have fun with accessories when I wear this dress. I often wear it with statement necklaces I made myself or similar eye-catching accessories. Anyhow, I figured that with the summer to autumn transitioning that is going on right now, it would make sense to show you some tran…
