Done is better than perfect

Hi my dear friend!
My new resolution is "Done i better than perfect" and yesterday was the 50th of 100 days challenge I am doing with other artists around the globe. Each of us is doing their own thing every day for 100 days and I've decided to make surface pattern designs. It is very hard to make one each day but with the new resolution "Done is better than perfect" it works just fine ;)


You can see all of them on my Instagram account or on my Facebook Page
Last week I was participating in a small bazaar which I organized for the International Women's Association of Krakow. It happened during our usual coffee morning with 10 creative members doing arts and crafts. It was charitable event and 10% of each sale went to the association's charity fond. 
Here are few photos ;)

I made few new paintings for this bazaar so that members can see the original work not just the printed version of it. If you are interested to buy the originals, please send me an email at cherubins3@gmail.com.

And one happy news for the end: my illustration "Girl in a field of daisies" was chosen to be in an art exhibition called "Never ending story" which is on 2nd&3rd June in Osijek in Croatia during ReART festival. Don't miss this event if you are in Osijek.

Patterns

Hi my dear friend,

It's been a month since I joined the Make Art That Sells students and alumni in a challenge of making something every day for 100 days. I've decided to make patterns in different techniques. So far I am doing them digitally because it is much faster when you need to make one each day. They are just a quick drawing and than translated and finished in photoshop. I also use Adobe capture to make a new pattern from the existing in just a second.

Here are some of them














I really hope I will manage to get it to the ned of 100 days without skipping a day.

Sending you a smile with love,
Dominika

Personalized children's book

Hi my friend,

it has been awhile since my last post. I have been working on my new website, it is almost done and I will launch it really soon but until than this blog will still be active.

These past few months were very hectic, emotional and busy. We moved to a new apartment this year because of the burglary in our old apartment we were renting. Some of my precious things I got from both of my late grandmothers were stolen which makes me very sad. But life goes on and we need to focus on positive things.

After all those things were over I started working on a great project for a girl who has lived in 5 different counties. I painted 6 small paintings for her, each presenting one city she had lived in. Than I asked her mom to write stories about each city and I designed her a small book.










I also made few toys and a cloud pillow with her favorite pets for her.
















Sending you my smile with love,

Christmas gift for a girl

Christmas is just a few days away... people are thinking about their loved ones, what to buy or make for them as a gift to thank them for being nice to them. Couple of years back my family decided to stop buying gifts so we can enjoy more for being together and not feeling bad if we didn't buy the right gift or we didn't spend enough money on the gift or we spent too much money on gifts... it makes us then sad and uncomfortable...
But little ones are different, my nephew and niece, my babies. For this year, I had so many commissions so I've managed to make only a gift for my niece, my nephew will get something special but not made by me ;)

I bought her a doll pram from Polish company called Bajo and I made a bed linen which I than hand painted. I sent a photo to my friend Paula from Doha and she suggested to personalized the pram as well. Paula has two daughters, always searching for gifts for them and she is full of amazing ideas. Thank you Paula for this advice!!!

I hope you are enjoying this Christmas season! I also hope that you are spending time with your loved ones and that you are happy and full of joy! If not, please promise me you will try to forget all the bad things that are happening or happened and make a room in your heart for peace and love.


Merry Christmas full of blessings!!!!
