L'illustration de ce signe zodiacal est vraiment sublime... Je viens tout juste d'être grand-mère d'une adorable petite Lise, née ce 2 avril. Elle est donc née sous le signe de ce merveilleux dessin.
Toutes mes félicitations pour votre beau portrait également.
gros bisous à vous

Carolina said...

So beautiful made, both your painting and the portrait of you. Just lovely! :)

siberja said...

I'm an aries, thank you :-)
I love that you painted it on an old book cover.. it's so creative! :-D

Ram said...

every time I see one of your pictures, I feel it is like a door that invites me to enter
to darkness, mystery, clarity, light, take a walk ... I do not know

abhilasha said...

Here after so long, and it only got better :)

renilde said...

This series is going to be so wonderful, i like your use of old worn materials, they add intrest to this piece too. Your work breathe the concentration and dedication with which it was made in a very pleasant way, easy , not forced.
Bravo again dear Mita, x

De Wilde said...

I love your use of old book covers, with your touch you bring the dying back to life.

And I am an Aries so thank you x

Cool portrait, everyone loves to capture your likeness, you will live forever xx

k.h.whitaker said...

Love the Ram on the old book cover Mita! The painting of you is really beautiful. She certainly captured your likeness and your inner beauty as well :)

Mario said...

Another piece of your art :) Regards from Spain.

rossichka said...

Another beautiful piece of art, wearing some mystery... I'm an Aries, Mita, so I feel it as a gift, thank you! This is like a "monument" of our stubbornness...:0)))) Yes, our horns are big and solid, and look quite well, as I can see!:) I preceive the background like the different everyday's peaks that we have to climb - some of them quite interesting and exciting (the coloured ones!) Or... like the "thorns" which make us feel what pain and love and joy is! And let us struggle... Thanks again!x

Elizabeth Rose Stanton said...

Your Aires ram is fantastic. I love the timeless look of it...and then the wonderful background pattern--brings us to the present. Very nice portrait, too!

Tammie Lee said...

your painting is gorgeous on the book cover, awesome!

I did see Plantie Bee's unfolding of this painting, it is wonderful! You are a beauty and she has portrayed you magically.

rossichka said...

I completely forgot to say how much I admire your portrait! It would be different without the birdie...:)But again beautiful, as you are, by all means!

Maya said...

So beautiful! Your painting on the old book cover looks amazing!
Your portrait is gorgeous as well!

Ram said...

Oh, no, the hearts you see, and you'll see in my blog, do not belong to anyone, are hearts, nothing more.
I see all the possibilities that come to mind, about how to make a heart. then every one adds the concept.

José A. López Picardo said...

I like this one When acuarious?
great portrait of an old fairy as well ;)

Andrew Finnie said...

Oh I agree with Karen :)
Mita, you're one of a kind - your work as well.
We are so lucky you found your art and also that you share your talent with us.

be well

audrey said...

Yes, Mita, it is! There is no other pain like it.
Your Ram is beautiful and so is the painting.
I have missed you and hope you are well and happy. Time is flying by and I don't seem to be accomplishing much. Not sure why.
It is always a joy to see your newest artwork.
Be well, my friend.
♥♥♥ FF

Andrew Finnie said...

Oh no, It was my lucky day .... :)
It's true about eyes you know.

Ana said...

You know I love this series.
I was born in July so I wait patiently for my drawing :)

Tango Chow said...

I have a strong intention to draw a picture for you as your friend did, but... heh heh... it may turn out to be Blackat's look~~

Hannah Sommerville said...

You are so great at creating mood within your work. The portrait is just as beautiful as you are. Both lovely pieces.

Ces Adorio said...

Beautiful Mita, your current painting is an inspiration. I am drawing something for a special Arian and I am thinking of you. Be good to yourself. Love you. Tsup!

MaritaBliss said...

Ted Blackman said...

Hey...waitaminute... is that Beelzebub? hmmmm...

Well, it's a very beautiful book cover. You are a good painter, Mita.

Now, about that frayed binding.. this is a very well-read book isn't it?

Ted Blackman said...

Beelzebub is staring at me.

Ana said...

Mita,I just heard about the earthquake in the news,
hope you and your family are fine.
I'm sending my love and good vibes to Indonesia.

Sydney L. said...

you're gorgeous and talented, im jelly! wish i was half as good as you xxx

If only telepathy would work here.
Because words simply do not fit thoughts.

1. Profile photo is stunning.
I'd prefer eyes less shadowed, as if in hiding?
They do reveal secrets of your soul's beauty.

2. ARIES, outstanding. Too bad for me,
I love the worn book cover even more!

3. Christina, wonderful artist friend. When one artist draws another, it MUST be the highest of compliment, and love shows in her portrait.

PEACE

Ram said...

You made me

Ces Adorio said...

I am sorry to hear you are not well. Take care of your beautiful self. I showed a friend your blog today and she exclaimed "Oh my! She is beautiful!" I told her, I know!!! Get well soon my dearest Mita. Tsup!

Vilt og vakkert said...

Heisann!

As always wonderful work from your hand - and I love the way you present your art on an old canvas.
I have with my students done something like this - 'printing' the original as a digital copy on fabric.

A portrait masterpiece of you from Christina, lovely
Hugs from me

Vilt og vakkert said...

Read Ces' comment, "I think hard of you", hope I can bring you health ;:OD)

Wini said...

AllThingsIcelandic said...

Great blog, count me as a follower :) and best regards from Iceland.

Ram said...

Ja Ja, what are you doing on my blog on Sunday?
Oh, OK
Why shyness?
Only two women told me, in her comments: "Yes, I have small breasts, you made me feel good", no shyness, no reason. I was waiting for the brave women :)

I can send to you a crate full of apples :)

Now I wonder what you had written, eh?
No problem, you can write what you want.
I see you, one of these days!!!!!

Charles Hawtrey said...

Ah ... the header, I was painting a watercolor in red, and the water in which I clean my brushes, stayed there all night. and the next morning, there was a dead dragonfly ... obviously, I photographed it. No more doubts Monster in Paris?♫ ♫ ♫ :)

Hello Lovely. I am thinking of you. Just wanted to say hello before I dove into my busy day. Take care sweetie. I am sorry I have been so lazy about writing. I will post something in the near future that will hopefully make you smile. Tsup.

Ana M.F. said...

Hello Mita,
Thanks so much for your words.
Most people think I should be stronger because it's been almost 10 years since he was diagnosed
but it's just too hard seeing someone you love deteriorating little by little.
I'm trying to keep my mind busy so I've started blogging and visiting you all again.
Your works make me feel a bit better :)
See you around, little witch.
