Blog-Versary, 1yr Old & Happy Valentine

Hi, Friends, Happy Valentine and 16th Feb is this blog anniversary. The blogging has lifted me up so much.

I could get many wonderful blogging friends. So many beautiful art works are on internet. Internet is an amazing world.
This blogging has given me wonderful leg exercises.
In order to upload something interesting topics, I've sketched anything, moved around or joined events every weekend like a journalist who hunts a subject.
Now, I can move the leg much better and stronger! Very happy!!

The light heart has imporved my art skills. Drawing skills get much quicker and better. In parallel, a watercolor style becomes more loose, vivid color use, spontaneous, free and full of joy. Better drawing skills and loose watercolor have given me wings to fly across a sky.
Not to be a "one-trick-pony," I've challenged any genres in art. From portraits, still life to cartoons, whatever I like. Challenging different areas helps me not to "beat a head against a wall" or not to narrow a view. "Tomorrow is another day. Try something different at the moment," is my mantra.
Then, in varied experiments, I've found new Sadamis. Very exciting!! Friends, make lots of messes and have fun! You'll find so many possibilities. No need to ristrict the individual potential.

Another bonus is enquiry of my work for use or purchase through the blog.

Thank you for the great support and encouragements. Special thanks for the linguistics professor and the lecturers who encouraged me to set up a blog.Blogging is lovely. Now, Sadami, go, go!!
ʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ Cheers!! ʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ

  5. Happy Blog-versary! It's good to hear what you get from blogging but I'm sure that's only a fraction of what others, like me, gain from it - particularly that your enthusiasm and sense of fun is infectious!

    The girl leaning out of the window for the bouquet is my favourite!

  34. Dear Elva,
    Thank you!! I love your work and blog, too. Yes, let us make messes lots and lots. Sure, it works. It means "Trust yourself in a healthy way"--A person needs to be confident to try an experiment, but also self-doubt enough to enjoy the experiment in life;).
    Then, through messes, we can find a way to go.

    Yes!! Any comment do NOT come up in this blog, unless an administrator = me, permits it. Your first comments came all round 3 in the midnight. How can I keep reading and pushing a key board even in the sleeping time? Your blog has chosen a different way. Check "setting" & "commnets" please.

  51. Feliz aniversario Sadami, es verdad que compartir el arte a través de intenet, abre muchos horizontes, y acerca a los artistas y permite , pese a las distancias tener amigos en todo el mundo, esto ayuda a progresar y estimula mucho para seguir progresando, ver tu blog me ha hecho descubrir el boceto de personas, que se puede pintar expresiones , sentimientos, y que el trabajo es la base del progreso. Además de tus cualidades artísticas , tus cualidades humanas hacen tu blog aún más atractivo, espero que sigas muchos años enseñandonos lo que haces, seguro que tienes un gran futuro en esto de la ilustración,y espero poder seguirte muchos años más.
    Saludos.
    Ah, tienes que registrar los modelos de calconzillos seguro que tendrán mucho éxito, y me alegro de la mejoría de tu pierna.

  52. Dear Francis,
    Thank you very much. Your kind comment is so touchy, which nearly makes me shed tears in joy. Your say on blogging is so true. It overcomes time, space and distance. I've learned lots from other blogs and will learn more. For self-taught artists, blogs are wonderful places to study about painting.

    Although the leg is still weak, the getting worse seems to have stopped. If so, I'm the winner. Walking is challenging and sometimes very painful and slow. But without exercises, the leg will lose muscles. So, I keep challenging myself. Like you, with blog friends' cheers have helped me move forward and I feel I can get through a tough time. When I feel the leg is too painful, I sit for a rest on a street. I sketch anything that interests me for a while. Sketching gives me energy. I stand up and walk again. I'll never give up and keep up hope for recovery any time and till the end of my life.

    Ahahaha, sure, yes, I should get a job as an underwear designer?!
    Thank you, Francis. In the future, I certainly will continue my blog to share work and joy for many years.
    Please pass my best wishes to your daughter. Take care.
    Kind regards and best wishes, Sadami

    Estimado Francisco,
    Muchas gracias. Su comentario especie es tan delicada, que casi me hace llorar de alegría. Su opinión sobre los blogs es tan cierto. Supera el tiempo, espacio y distancia. He aprendido mucho de otros blogs y aprender más. Para los artistas autodidactas, los blogs son lugares maravillosos para el estudio de la pintura.

    A pesar de la pierna es todavía débil, la cada vez peor parece haberse detenido. Si es así, yo soy el ganador. Caminar es difícil ya veces muy doloroso y lento. Pero sin ejercicios, la pierna se pierden los músculos. Por lo tanto, me mantengo un reto. Al igual que usted, con vítores amigos blog 'me han ayudado a seguir adelante y creo que puedo obtener por un momento difícil. Cuando siento la pierna es muy doloroso, me siento a descansar en una calle. Yo dibujo todo lo que me interesa por un tiempo. Dibujar me da energía. Me pongo de pie y caminar de nuevo. Nunca voy a renunciar y mantener viva la esperanza para la recuperación en cualquier momento y hasta el final de mi vida.

    Ahahaha, sí, sí, debe conseguir un trabajo como diseñadora de ropa interior?!
    Gracias, Francisco. En el futuro, sin duda continuará mi blog para compartir el trabajo y la alegría de muchos años.
    Por favor, pase mis mejores deseos a su hija. Tenga cuidado.
    Un cordial saludo y mis mejores deseos, Sadami

    Sadami Happy anniversary, indeed to share the art through intenet, opens many horizons, and about the artists and allows, despite the distances have friends around the world, it helps to progress and stimulus for further progress, see your blog made me discover the outline of people, that can be painted expressions, feelings, and that work is the basis for progress. Besides your artistic talents, your human qualities make your blog even more attractive, I hope you continue for many years showing us what you do, sure you have a great future in this illustration, and I hope to follow many years.
