I'm just writing quickly this journal to say Happy New Year to all, a lot of love, happiness and creativity !

I just came back from Europe where I had my internship and traveled a bit, I need to put back my life on track. I have no idea when I will get around to do more art, but no worry, I will come back in force later in 2015 :)

Love you all,

Wintella

Canada
I'm a young 27 years old woman living in Canada. I came here from Russia when I was 12. I speak Russian, French and English. I'm a student at university in Master's degree in social work and I'm currently working in a women's shelter. I'm living right now with my fiancÚ and my two cats!

I'm a vegetarian and one of my goals is to become raw vegan! I like organic stuff, from food to all kind of domestic products.

I think that I am quite an artistic person. As you can see from my gallery, I paint on glass and on canvas with acrylic paint (my favorite medium!). Recently, I really got into watercolors. I draw too (I like especially oil pastels) and do other interesting artistic creations like origami and homemade snow balls xD I enjoy to take pictures too, but I don't have a good camera.

I looooooooooooove and adoooooooore animals! All the felines (cheetah, domestic cats...), imaginary ones (unicorns, dragons...), horses and I spend a lot of time watching documentaries on the natural world. I like to take some walks around my house. I live in a quite neighborhood just near a river and the sunsets here are lovely.

I also like to listen music: Enigma, Russian, techno, relaxation. I love to dance too... even if I abandoned ballroom dance lessons years ago.

I'm kind of hooked up on animes and manga, especially yaoi. I read a lot, fantasy books mostly. I do write from time to time, even poetry.

Lol what? It's written in Russian, but sounds a bit like gibberish... The only thing that I understand it ''thank you very much''. I guess the rest was something about me following you xD

You are welcome Warren :) I wonder how it slipped in being added to my favs !

I'm ok, my session is done, but I still have to finish my internship essay and I have till the end of August to deposit it. I gonna take my time to do it correctly. I send some papers to become a member of my professional order so I can look for a good paying job as a social worker. And I go out a lot lately to dance salsa. I'm actually following some salsa and kizomba lessons right now.

And about my art, I tried there and there to play around some more with watercolours, but for some reason, the art just doesn't want to come together for me. I did a dry pastel drawing of a butterfly that is decent enough to be posted on dA. 

And how is everything going for you ? How are your daughters ? And your art ? Some new projects with summer approaching ?

I can't imagine how it ever could have slipped in there. :roll:

I'm very glad for you that your session is done. Hopefully the essay isn't too taxing and you get it done easily without feeling too much pressure. Once it's all done and you find that "good paying job" I bet it will be a nice change for you. I am quite smiling at the dancing and quite impressed with the kizomba (which I had to look up). I bet you are having a lot of fun with that.

I have a suggestion for something for you to try with watercolours in the future if you have a chance. Do a pen and ink drawing of something and just wash in layers of colour in a subtle way. This is how I first started painting, and a lesson I taught to an elementary class and it's lots of fun, easy to do, and yields really nice results. I saw your pastel butterfly and I can tell you are quite comfortable using pastels. :nod:

Here work has been quite busy. The girls are doing well, Anne my oldest finished her first year of graphic arts in college and is set to move out this summer. As for my art I have a golf course watercolour landscape going (it's a commission), and a very large acrylic diptych as well. The acrylic is very different colours for me, but it is coming out quite bold and very well I think. I do want to get out and do some hiking and exploring this summer for sure.

Oh and I did get a nice winter sunset photo this year (finally), here it is: 

Almost Sunset Wallpaper by kach-back

I have edited it to fit my Mac screen, that's why it's called "Almost Sunset Wallpaper", I hope you like it. :-)

Well, the job is gonna be a tool for me to pay my debts related to my studies. In the long run, I would like to do some art therapy with teenagers or young adults in a group setting. So I might get back to university at some point to do a minor in art therapy or something like that. I would check that out in a couple of years. For now, it's really time to get out there and work as a social worker.

For dancing, check also bachata :P That is another dance that I do quite often. I guess approaching 30, I'm getting back on the dance floor like I did when I was a child. I have a ballroom background and stopped taking classes at 16, because it was too expensive for me. I was working back then small jobs so I could pay my dance lessons, but couldn't do it anymore.

For your watercolour suggestion, I know the technique, but never did it. I watched a really nice video of somebody doing something like this. Here it is: www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfvmDf… I guess this is what you mean. Not only elementary kids do it :P Some artists still do it too...

I think dry pastels is the medium that I feel less comfortable with actually. I'm more into oil pastels if anything. But I find some of the paintings are better done in dry pastels and I have been thinking about a couple of projects lately. The butterfly is just an experiment... 

It's awesome for your oldest ! Following in dads artistic footsteps. And I guess it would be hard for you to let her spread her wings outside by moving out. Through the past year, my own mom started reconnecting with her artistic soul. She started selling on etsy what she is doing. I'm really proud of her ! Here is her online shop: www.etsy.com/ca/shop/LanikArt?… She is awesome ! He crafts are gorgeous and she deserve more views ! So spread the word please !

Your art is always colourful... So even a bording subject like a gulf course would we awesomely rich, I'm sure :) And that beautiful picture... I already imagine it as a painting !

Hello Warren. You are very welcome :) I was glad to see something new from you. I do like it a lot ! I still didn't do much painting since I came back from Belgium. I'm busy right now with my partner preparing for a huge health food expo that gonna take place this week-end. Since he is doing raw vegan cakes, I help him a lot, working crazy hours. And I'm busy also with school work. Stuff are gonna calm down a bit after the expo and probably after April. Till then, art is on stand by.
