Tales and story books, gnomes and cartoons.

By paolafalconi   /     Sep 25, 2014  /     Illustrations, My art

I’ve always loved tales and story books.

When I was young the opportunities to see cartoons on telly were very rare. Only once a week, on sunday morning. And then I grew up spending my days reading and dreaming on my story books.
I still love them today and I collect them a lot as they are a wonderful source of inspiration.
This afternoon I was working in my studio and while I was totally immersed in my activities my daughter Carolina came to me very proud and happy to show me an house of gnomes that she created in the garden.
I suddenly had to take a picture ๐Ÿ™‚

Daily duties and art escape.

By paolafalconi   /     Sep 16, 2014  /     Illustrations, My art

Dear friends,
holidays are now weeks away, the kids are finally back to school and I’m back to my daily duties as mother, wife and artist.
I love my role in the family, it’s tough and intense. Sometimes I would love to take a break as I do during holidays but it’s impossible!
Anyway, as an artist I have a secret weapon that never fails: take my hours off, grab a sheet, my colors, my brushes and …..ESCAPE with my fantasy.

Very busy back to school days.

Last days of holidays for my children…… not holidays for me anymore.
I’m very busy, organizing everything in the house and for the kids that will be back to school next monday.
Anyway, I’m very satisfied because, despite I’m busy with family stuff, I always find some time for my art.
Good night my friends ๐Ÿ™‚
