( it looks as Isola de dragoni to me, but it's an idea of Cynara, and Cynara's, you already know, have no knowledge of art. ) So I will write about a lovely rain and stormy weather we have here.

I would love a Chinese Astrology book like that.

Vilt og vakkert said...

heisann!

I love these Chinese dragons, I once made a dragon carnival costume for my sons when he was a child.
Your illustration is as always fantastic!

I did not have the invitation from IF on my blog this week - so I had the topic just now. Skip this week then, may be! Have a lot of other things to do!But the week is still young, so who knows!!

Hugs

roberto said...

OK, so it is fortunate that today I was bored and came to visit your blog

so I could see the wonderful things you do with Pshp when you're bored

Graciela said...

Mita Sweet Hello! how are you? I'm fine with very hot days.
I like your illustration of the dragon, the other day talked with Dr. Rober on the Chinese horoscope and you know what? Alfredo is a dragon! Last night after work, he stumbled and fell, he was given five stitches in his hand! but is fine now and he's gone back to work,
I am sending you a big hug and a kiss
♥ ♥ ♥

Kristin H said...

Wishing I could have photoshop playfulness talent... oh, well!

Rrramone said...

Beautiful. And I wish I was born in the year of the dragon. :-)

Rrramone said...

p.s. I think we should draw each other! :-)

DD said...

ha ha ha, do not you think there are too many people, from the same family here? ;)

Ana said...

we need to fight the overdose of girly cuteness from time to time :)
I'm happy you are still posting, your blog is one of my favourites Mita, never leave.

°Laurent said...

I thank you very much for all your wishes.
You make me feel better :)

And as I told you, very beautiful Dragon and variation. You'll let me know where I can find it available as an e-card, yes?

Lots of love kisses <3

Priscilla said...

Very beautiful! I love the dragon and the colours you chose compliment it very well. Nicely done :)

renilde said...

Shirley said...

Gung Hay Fat Choy, dear Mita!!!!!!
Oh my goodness gracious..I am just in awe of this lovely piece. I think it's got to be one of my most favorites of yours...my husband would love this (he's a dragon)!! I love it as it is, just those gorgeous organic water shapes are perfection with the beautifully illustrated dragon. I will not paint a dragon as you've already created the most exquisite one. : ) Wishing you a most wonderful year ahead, big hugs to you my friend!

Rabbit Town Animator said...

Love this one! The form of the dragon, the colours and textures...gorgeous! May the year of the dragon be favourable for you!

ti-igra said...

Happy NEW YEAR, dear! I want to wish you smile around you! Kindness and inspiration! :))))

So happy we are friends!!!
Love
Kisses <3<3<3

This is so beautiful!

Great illustration!

dragons...made thousands when i was a child
A big hug cute fairy

Andrew Finnie said...

Heya 'she-who-cannot-paint-water-colours-but-really-can-superbly" person! Your work is a lot like me - pretty and delicate and dances very lightly. (Okay I lied - I am none of the above but I am working on it).

The shopping really tightens the composition and adds to the balance. Patina is so good, eh. A wise decision of yours, but that's why you are an artist and not a skiing instructor.

Though one might be fun sometimes.
Go on: deny it!

see you

thanks for stopping by the other day, you are very kind!

hope you are well and really really busy :)

PS lovely avatar you have. Who is it?

Andrew Finnie said...

hey Art I just love here be dragons :)

art is jok(k)e(n) said...

as Andrew said....
:)

ps2: who knows, maybe you are right......

Zlatica said...

Hello my dear, I've missed you.
Beautiful painting. Happy dragon year!

Carolina said...

Love both versions!

Horacio said...

Hola Mita!!

Hope you are very well as always!
I do not know so much about chinese culture but... Happy chinese new year!
That dragon does not looks so furious!

Ps. In fact, looks like my little dog called Bobby!! Kises.

Awesome!!! I so love dragons!! And yours is... amazing!! Do you know I actually did a stained glass dragon for my boy last Christmas? I must send you a pic!! Once the sun (or the moon!!) light catch all those fire-like colors, it's magic!! Just like your illustration!! So much talent, you have, my friend!!! :))
