Afrika by EllyShadun
Acryl and markers on canvas. I'm painting a country/culture serie and this is the first one. Tell me what you think :)
A moment alone by EllyShadun
A moment alone
I made this last weekend, right after one of my beloved cats, Berta, left with her new owner. Berta and my other cat, Mello, couldn't get along anymore and they have lived apart for over >6 months. In this time I had to balance my energy, time and love between the two cats. It wasn't only hard for me, but also for them. They couldn't stand it when I was with the other cat. Saying goodbye to Berta was harder then I thought, even though she was with me for less than a year.

The picture I used as a inspiration can be found here:…

I felt like the woman in the painting, lost and alone, in darkness, but seeing a bright future ahead. Knowing that the discission I made was the best one in this situation. Now both cats get the attention and love that they need. Mello is still a bit afraid, walking around like Berta is going to be right around the corner to attack him. Before Berta came, he was a tough boy (afraid of nothing) and very social (greeting visitors and sleeping on their lap etc). Now he hides under the bed and behind the curtains. I hope he will get his confidence back soon.. 


It's still January, but I think I can say 2013 will be my year.

- I'm learning how to deal with my ME. And I'm making progress. Finally I'm getting better and better :)

- Because of that, my depression is getting better too. Found my happy self again. And it doesn't feel like it's just temporary.

- Since December I have been working in a sewing studio as a trainee. I'm learning to upholster furniture. It's a fun thing to do and the people I work with are really nice. The project I'm working on right now is an assignment my art mentor gave me. She had an old footstoll and she wanted me to upholster it for her. The textile I used is paintable. My art mentor has a black and white kitten and now she's in love with cats. Which isn't strange, because cats are awesome! xD The foodstoll will be for the kitten. For some reason she wants a combination of cats and herogliefs painted on it. So I'm also busy with that :)

- I found another Eastern Painting canvas, yay! :D To make it easier for myself, I'm colouring the boarders with coloured markers. I'm thinking about painting a ballet girl with an umbrella in the window, she's dancing in the rain. Like the quote: 'Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning how to dance in the rain.' :D  

- Aaaaaand, yesterday I found an appartement, oh yeah! :D February 8th I get the keys.

Oh yeah, life's goooood! :D
