Amarilli A. and Sunday Sketches

on a warm autumn day
i sat at the lake shore
and the above is what I made
now, i am thinking i might make a coloring book 
for children at Christmas

further on:

lake rocks:

Recently I discovered an Italian artist; Amarilli A. 
her art is wonderful and diverse. 
I wandered about her website: Amarilli A.
and her: Facebook page
enjoying her art!

She is having an awesome giveaway on 11.12.11
you have to answer: 
“which work made by me (Amarilli) do you like most and why? “
she will choose the winner of her 'original' art
by the answer she loves.

I love this piece:

her eyes.... hold the magic and wisdom of more than our world
her hair reminds me of my mothers and is feminine and wild all at once
though she sits in a calm graceful way, her tail hints at wildness we can only imagine
Amarilli, all else feels ethereal to me
and full of feeling 
I love how you do this with simplicity of colors

I have to say it was hard picking one piece of art over others
because I am drawn to so many of her arts!

Treat yourself to a visit to Amarilli A.'s website and facebook page and maybe enter 
your give away yourself!

  3. Lovely sketches by you. A coloring book is a great idea.
    Thank you for the link I will head over and take a look. It is drawn on my birthday! Maybe that's a sign!! Although the reason you like that painting by her is truly beautiful, how could anyone write a more soulful reason for liking a painting than that.
    Wishing you a lovely day Tammie.

  4. What a beautiful piece! I love how you made the branches frame her. :)

  5. ...pencil in hand ~ will follow the heart beat ~ radiant shining flowing lines become a vision from the mind's eye ~ one never knows where the next story will take you! ~ gentle blessings ~ sister of the world!...
    ...i bequeath a sonnet for thee...

  6. Oh your sketch is beautiful Tammie. I was looking at Amarilli piece you showcased and was admiring it when I notice she has a tail :)
