Pessivendole a Piran

Done after Armando Salas' beautiful sketch (notice the sub-gallery title *wink*). It was a great pleasure and the opportunity to learn a lot. I could not however resist the temptation to take some artistic licences. Sorry, Armando ;) Gouache on paper. 30*40 cm. I apologize for the poor quality, but i had to take a photo, since atm i dont have a scanner facility.

You've certainly given it your own style Cristina, very nicely done indeed :D

Christina, this is just beautifully done, I love how you changed the buildings and the setting but the ladies and fisherman are a clear indication of the original, I know this has been quite an emotional experience for Armando, for us all. I hope we all can do this again soon :)

I already know my father's painting. Your version is better for sure. (Just renouncing to the legacy... LOL:-)

CRISTINA, this is awesome.... Though the writer of the "OneWorldPeace Project" (Alex) thinks this is "only" a "Color- My -Fish- PIC"(????) I do applaud you for all your tremendous efforts and I love it. (read the Armando "What if...? CHALLENGE then you'll know what I'm talking about...) Love and Light~OLGA

Eighteen artist (I'm included) are involved in this project until now. I was tninking about a "standard" comment for all people. Although you all are the real artists, it's as if your creatures were "my kids". Does a father show preferences? Not at all. All of them, sons and daughters are beautiful and loved. I'll not like to hurt someone because I write "Wonderful" to one and "Lovely" to another one. I must be cautious because I know all people put the same feelings and passion for art in their work. When I got this idea I thought: "If I'm lucky, perhaps 3-4 artists..." I couldn't suspect 17 TALENTED artists more (by now :-) were ready to share this strange experience. Sorry my English knowledge isn't good enough to express my feelings but all of you must know I truly appreciate your endless support in all I do or start. Yes, this one is my STANDARD comment. AMAZING WORK! I feel myself honored because you are part of my project and my heart. No more words are needed. Thank you very much. Love you
