Special Thanks for Birthday Cheers & Show

Hi, Friends, thank you for warm celebrations for my birthday. Oh, beyond language! I really had wonderful "days" (and still ongoing!) and ... have a clear head, without a hangover! 

Now, a busy season has started for exhibitions at the end of a year. 
Ku-Ring-Gai Art Society annual exhibition will have an opening this Friday. I put this work in a show. 
If you come near, come over. You can see me on a roster from 12 to 3 o'clock next Tuesday.  
St Ives Shopping Centre
29 October -10 November 2013
                                                    "LUV U" at Library 


Also, special thanks for your warm cheers for Victoria Cancer Council exhibition at Gasworks Arts Park. Manager Kim says, "The exhibition was a wonderful success and truly showed the variations but also the common themes of going through a cancer experience. I really think you are all very brave for sharing your with us and for that I really do thank you, Entrants." 
Anyone can join that exhibition, who has been involved with cancer. As I lost my friends from cancer and submitted the work. 
An annual exhibition is a wonderful event that certainly brings hope, comfort and encouragement for people affected by cancer.  
BTW, I'm preparing for a meeting with Editor and Mentor next week. I can't wait like a little child before Christmas! Very excited and so happy. Oh, what could I say, sooo happy! I seriously hope I will not have a heart attack from joy. Story boards, black & white, colour roughs are all in order. I keep exploring watercolour techniques. Below, a doodle just inspired me to use another technique for the illustration project. So, Friends, make lots of doodles. You'll find interesting effects and get ideas.  

Thank you for warm encouragements at my rainy days and sunny days. I do appreciate silent support for me, too.  
You, too, please take care and enjoy drawing. 
Friends, Happy Painting!

    1. Dear Irina, thank you for visiting my blog. You, too, have proven "Dreams Come True." I'm very busy with the picture book project. This Thursday, Editor and Mentor come to my place. Oh, I'm already excited. Publishing industry is getting into a digital era, complexity of market movement. Hope you and me will survive.
