I'd love your help for my soon-to-come website: Do you think it's vital that my site's name and my shop's name are the same? 

8 deviants said It would be better but not absolutely necessary.
3 deviants said It doesn't really matter if a link on the website takes visitors to the shop.
2 deviants said Yes, I think it's the only really professional option.
1 deviant said I wish you didn't make me think so hard ;-)
No deviants said It can create confusion and make remembering your sites more difficult.
No deviants said I don't really know.

I may get a commission for a watercolour painting with flowers. What? I don't usually paint flowers! Why should I start now?

Well, the fact that they woulld be commissioned (a sure sale :D ) does have something to do with it :giggle:. But so does the fact that I love flowers. Is there anyone on earth who doesn't? Even my cats love flowers so much that they eat them! :rofl:

So I decided to hone my flower-painting skills and, in the process, get myself a bunch of appropriate watercolours because guess what. Flowers are not colour-shy, they don't care about Western Minimalism or Eastern Wabi-Shabi-ism :confused: They display vivid, provocative colours in all their glory!

So, to add to my existing stock of watercolours, I bought a tube of Holbein Opera (attention, lovers of pink), Holbein Lavender (sweeeet), Schmincke Horadam Cadmium Orange Light (and bright) and Winsor and Newton Manganese Blue Hue.

The first thing I did was just try them out on a sheet of Hahnemühle watercolour paper. No flowers yet, just washes and stains. I love the way they pop! And since I love it, I had to share it with you. Next step will be actually painting some flowers. Next-next step will be getting the commission. I'll keep sharing the results.

Have a wonderfully colourful weekend, buds!

dear anonymous...

It's 20:41 in the evening here in Spain. I just got home from Vilanova i la Geltrú, the beautiful Catalan summer resort where my solo exhibition opens on Friday 2 March. Today I took my paintings to the Centre of Contemporary Art of that town. It's a 350 km / 217 mile round trip on a freezing, snowy day. The temperature is already below zero in Beceite, the small town where I live. It felt SO GOOD to walk into the apartment and feel the heat!

And then, my dear dA friends, it felt even better when I decided to snoop around the site a bit and found out that an anonymous friend has given me one. whole. year. of a CORE membership!

Whoever you are... Thank You!!! thank u

Now I can post art again without having to delete older submissions and I'll share my work for the exhibition with you all. Not now, not today because I'm tired and hungry. I haven't had dinner yet! But I just had to share the good news with you and tell my wonderful anonymous friend that I deeply appreciate their generosity. Mate, you made my day! Joy Love Emote
