Summer ~

I am so incredibly excited to introduce to you my "Summer" ! I have to say I've had favorites before (I know I say that with every new piece) But seriously... I love love love her! :) I still can't believe that I'm using color, tons of it & she's a stunning 11" X 15" .

Again, I've been sooo busy! I barely have a moment to come on here & talk about her. I've since been working a two amazing commissions... so as soon as they are complete perhaps I'll have some time to come on here & see what every one's been up to!

Oh, I've named her "Summer" because when I look at her I see an ocean breeze, I think of running barefoot in the grass on a hot summer day... let the air of her whisk you off through the clouds towards the sun... I wish I was better with words, but she warms my heart, as the sun does, on a summer day with not a care in the world...

Cheers ! xoxo


  1. oh my goodness, I kept checking on you, but you hadn't posted anything new, and now two new beautiful pieces! I am so happy for you! she is so lovely! I love this colored hair you have going on!

    Miss you!!!

  2. you have a very liquid, ethereal style, its rather beautiful.

  3. Check you out with that colored hair! Crazy, lol. I LOVE this - of course you know I LOVE that color and again, your pieces have such a free, flowing, etherial look to them. I would love to see all your girls in a book! A big, fat coffee table book with a rich white cover. Just saying . . . xoxo

    ...blessed be dear friend!...

  5. This is really beautiful. I always love every picture you create. It is so flowy and gorgeous and you're right, that color definitely is reminiscent of the ocean. It's funny, I just posted a picture I named Spring. I hadn't really had any thought in mind, until I finished it and the trees reminded me of Cherry Blossoms in the Spring. :)
    Gorgeous, gorgeous, always!! :D Have a beautiful day. And so excited for you and your commissions, I hope you'll share when they're complete.

  6. Wow! Did I say Wow!!! Just in case I didn't say this WOW!!!! You are so gifted!!!!!!

  7. summer is lovely Joana, simply beautiful. I love her hair!
