Haunted still life (Painting of the day) / Ukleta mrtva priroda ( Slika dana)

 Fairis of the slavic mythology are often my inspiration. They pop out in the least likely of places, on my clothes, on my necklaces, on a forgotten sketch of still life....

Vile slavenske mitologije su često moja inspiracija. Pojavljuju se svugdje negdje, na mojoj odjeći, na mojim ogrlicama,  na zaboravljenoj skici mrtve prirode...

    2. I still don't get it. I read it before and all I read is haunted still life, you got the inspiration from mythology and you paint it on every available surface so to say. Maybe I am too blond to get it, lol. Never mind Ivana.

  28. Hey Ivana, I'm interested to know the interpretation of your painting. I wonder about the fruits in the foreground. I love mths and I haven't really known much about Slavic myths. I would have to google some well-known Slavic myths.

    The pictures you took at the river is so lovely. I'm always thrilled by those river pics no matter how many times you feature them. And you're right that there are newcomers to your blog too. Anyway, it's your blog so feel free to write on!

    Awww... what a shame that we do not have similar social media platforms except for our blogs. You are one of those whom I would love to connect on all platforms. I totally feel you when you said "we just can't get them all". We only have so little time in a day and social media is just one facet of life. Sending you lots of xoxo back, Ivana.

  40. As a young child, I often day dream that I am a fairy and would fly into a magical world in my head. I often wonder how and when did our naiveness as a child gone and why do we have to grow up so fast.

    When you paint, is there any particular meaning that you want to convey or do you paint out of the blue because of an inspiration? :)

A GRACE KARIN DRESS: VALENTINE'S DAY OUTFIT PROPOSAL

What to wear for Valentine's day? I'm sure many ladies (and gentlemen) are asking themselves that question. I can't offer much personal experience on dressing up for Valentine's day when it comes to gentlemen, but I can tell you what I've learned as a lady. I can sum it up in two main points: find something that will make you feel special but make sure you're comfortable at the same time. After all, you want to feel special on this lovely day, don't you? Now, you can define special anyway you want to. Moreover, you must also consider one important fact and that is how you are going to celebrate Valentine's day. If you are celebrating it by going on a hike with your significant other, obviously you'll ditch the heels and wear hiking boots. However, that doesn't mean you can't wear a pretty dress! My advice is to take a moment and plan your Valentine's day outfit, that way it will surely feel special. There are other things to consider as…

INSPIRED BY.....NATALIA LIALINA

Hello everyone and happy hump day!How are you doing? I hope you had a lovely week so far. It's been a while since my last Inspired by post, hasn't it? Well, today I'm back with another Inspired by... feature.  As some of you know, this is a regular feature on my blog that is all about illustrating bloggers I love and that inspire me. I always say it's one of my favourite features and it truly is. Over the years I had the chance to illustrate many many bloggers and it's always something I enjoy doing.
Moreover, I enjoy blog recommendations posts and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I discovered some wonderful bloggers through other bloggers and that's always lovely. This regular feature of mine is  not just about illustrating, it is also a kind of a blog recommendation post, because it gives me a chance to share bloggers I love with you. This time I have illustrated Natalia from @inthewriterscloset.  You can check out her blog here

FASHION ILLUSTRATION: ZUHAIR MURAD'S BLUE GOWN FROM 2019 COUTURE COLLECTION

Hello, darlings! I'm back two fashion illustration of one Zuhair Murad dress. This blue gown is so beautiful I simply had to illustrate it twice. It makes me think of the sea, the mermaids and basically the good old 'day at the beach' vibes. There is something so liberating about spending time by the ocean, isn't there? I grew up in a coastal town, and I do miss the sea terribly. However, that is surely not the only reason why I loved this dress so much. You know, when I think Zuhair Murad the first thing that comes to my mind is- haute couture. I feel he is one of those designers who were simply meant to make couture. Do you know what I mean? Murad's designs are always so exquisite, glam and elegant. I do like his ready-to-wear collections, but there is just something about his haute couture collections that makes them stand out in the sea of others. 
 I already illustrated a dress by this designer (here), and with the fashion week on its way, I opted for somethi…
