Jose said...

I love the backgrounds in your illustrations and the strong simbolism you use. She takes her time bearing water...
About my shearseas...there´s something like a little clue below the pic.Yes it´s in spanish...
you have the google translator below the recent comments.I guess it could show you some clue about it.
A big hug oldlittlefairy

renilde said...

Very special interpretation of the Aquarius sign ( wish you painted all the signs, that would make a superb zodiac)
The background, the turtle, the coach, all so fine in detail and color.
Truly beautiful Mita!
and ofcourse a very happy birthday Aquarius, xx

Ana said...

Beautiful work,witch. My favourite part is the turtle,I love the patterns on the shell ♥
Both my parents are aquarius, I think is a good sign :)

Ana said...

Is it your birthday? I hope I'm not too late to wish you the best, Mita.

Ana said...

Did you save me a piece of cake?

roberto a. said...

this is the tenth time I come to see the picture!

I told Ana. "I will on my computer (with permission of the authors) a folder to save the pictures that I like, because over time the post are being left behind, and I can not re-watch my favorite illustrations,
do you give me permission? :) ☺

Rafael Muniz Espíndola said...

Olá, muito bom trabalho. Gostei das cores que tu usaste. Parabéns... Consiste em algo lúdico e onírico ao meu ver... parabéns...

Rafael Muniz Espíndola said...

Oops, Sorry because I write in Portuguese... but, your work it's very very nice...

Your turtle knows how to find me.

Blue Eyed Night Owl said...

Stunning! I love the colors, and the turtle, and the girl, and well... everything about it!

donny* said...

Hello, hello, hello! I'm loving this one. The detail and design of the turtle is fantastic! Hope your new year is having a creative kick!

Saturnino said...

Colors, colors, colors; light, light, light... Suddenly I remember my old friend Goethe.

dinis mota said...

Beautiful!:))))))))))))

I was here. I have seen the H2Obearer. I was amazed. I have to go again. To carry water away, as all my entire life. I have, however, no turtle. But I have a sweet domba. And a very old friend. Selamat tinggal

Milla said...

This is beautiful beyond words <3

rossichka said...

Hmmm, so this is how water appears in nature!...:) I like this serious Water Bearer - she has so much work to do, does she ever stop?! She has passed throughout so many things that I have the feeling a woman is watching through her eyes. A wise woman in a girlish body. Wise as her turtle. They travel and pour out water day after day, year after year... There's some sense of eternity in your magical illustration, Mita!!!
As far as I understood you've just had a birthday? Then many happy returns of the day with love, inspiration and light along your path in life!:)
By the way, have you read Michael Ende's novel "Momo"? If not, I think you'll love it! There's a lovely character there - the Tortoise Cassiopeia!xx

Piarom said...

your work is adorable ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿

Lisa Graham Art said...

Your talent astounds me. Wow wow and wow.

About your question on texture...it is gel medium. I put it down first in little lines and blobs, then I dry brushed with acrylic paint. Easy peasy. : )

Is it your birthday?

genie espinosa said...

mita! my mita! i love the textures in the turtle! love the spirit! you're magical!

Ted Blackman said...

Look at you just crankin' out the art this year. You may have passed me up.

A beautiful piece.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Ana said...

Of course you can, just learn the moves :D

Axel Zapata said...

Hello beauty, how are you, this paint it's amazing, I like the details of the turtle, I like your pic too, you're looking very nice.

anuar bolaños said...

Wow, I am really impressed by the magic of your paintings.
They make me feel powerful and have hope in the future.

Andrew Finnie said...

Hello mita :)

Well I think I already told you that this is my favourite so far. So deep is the colour and the pattern on the toirtleturtleshell whisps me to far away lands.

Some people will be pleased at that (me travelling :) )

Are you well? Your water colours are well enough for both of us.

Good luck my friend.

encaracolada said...

I love it! The turtle is great

roberto A. said...

Oh, you're the perfect woman, great artist, caring, beautiful, intelligent, good friend, and besides, you know about chemistry!
now I know more about hair!!!!! :):D
Good breakfast!!!!! (I felt every morning, somehow, somebody touched me);) :D

Saturnino said...

Why do you think I'm in the U.S.? I'm in the same place as always: inside an artichoke.

Vilt og vakkert said...

Heisann !
Better slowly forward than in a hurry...!
Poetic and delicate drawing, beautiful muted color and gorgeous undulating lines and great atmosphere.
Have a nice time, Mita ♥

Vilt og vakkert said...

By the way my two sons are Aquarius as well ;:OD)
Happy season... and birthday...

Sunny said...

very dreamy,i like how light she looks

roberto A. said...

Thank you very much for your comment, but ... Why should I care?
do you know something about a danger threatening me?
look at my face
^----------------^

roberto A. said...

OHHHHHHHHHHHHH, ok, sorry.
Yes, yes, I will take care
(you're online all the time) :D
Ha ha, we need a pianist, do you know of someone?

look at onion in about one minute or two

roberto A. said...

oh busy girl!!!

Eh...And we can take a picture as John & Joko and Sean & Charlotte, right? jaja :)

roberto A. said...

bad joke mmmmm
good bye, have a great week!!!!!!!!!!!

Wini said...

Wow, this is simply stunning, creative and so imaginative!! Love it!! Do you sell your art online??

Saturnino said...

My comment was a spam???? What do you mean? I just wrote the comment, clicked on the publish button and that's it. Really was a spam? Are you mocking me?

I'm hungry, I want to eat a lot.

Ces said...

Mita, darling, no sad face. I will visit you and write to you. If you decide to sell your artwork, please let me have a first run through and pick. I may have to apply for a secured loan to be able to pay them :) Jokes aside, it would be a great honor to hand your art in my office and my home. I shall keep on visiting your blog. Likewise, I may post some more skies so you will know where else to find me. I love you. Tsup!

Ces said...

I mean hang, not hand.

Ces said...

Having to peddle my artwork makes me feel like an art-whore. I do not paint or draw so I can eat, I have a job. I paint or draw because I can't help it and having to deal with the selling part of it myself makes me feel like a street vendor and makes it all sound so kitsch. I will have to hire an agent. Seriously, it is so cheap to sell oneself.

Ces said...

Hmn, that does not sound right either. It is as if I am hiring a john. It is just art to me is not a commodity. I think you understand what I am trying to say. I am not good at being an artist. I am not an artist, I just paint and draw. That's all. Okay, gotta go to work now. I have two projects, one going live today and another in two weeks. Work is calling... Goodnight. Tsup!

Andrew Finnie said...

thank you Mita I will and you too :)

see you ;D

(hey it's great fun making faces with key thingies )

)D PS your sister looks not bad

Zlatica said...

Beautiful painting, as always. :)

Fluid.....



“If there be light, then there is darkness; if cold, heat; if height, depth; if solid, fluid; if hard, soft; if rough, smooth; if calm, tempest; if prosperity, adversity; if life, death.”

Happy Monday to you, no, best, Happy Tuesday.

navigate to the coast, open your eyes
walking, watching the sun
and forget that sea
Ah, do not cry so much, until your eyes are dry
save some tears for the good times,
you also can cry for happiness
is the way more beautiful to cry
