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?

  1. We think it looks amazing the way it is! :) Just love the elephants, too cute :) Another job well done :D

  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.

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.

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
