Well this was fun! Cleaning up all the glitter won’t be though. I’ve had this idea with the new moon glitter for a while now and i just loved working with all that sparkling thing. I feel like creating a whole collection with glitter bottles, because it’s just so darn magical to have.

I’ll probably try something more complex next time and i’m hoping i’ll make a small series out of this!

Hope you all have a magical and sparkly weekend

I’ve been always fascinated with crystals, ever since i was very little. The one i always overlooked however, where the salt crystals. That changed when we first got to the island and i started finding them on the beaches. We now have a small collection of them in our office and i got to photoshoot them the other day on a warm afternoon.

Jason has a salt rock lamp in his bedroom as well and we enjoy the warm light. Salt crystals have so many healing powers and i just love reading more and more about them. Amongst many, they cleanse the air, reduce allergies and help you get better sleep. Well, good thing we have plenty of them hanging around the house.

These past months i’m connecting with many creatives, moms and artists over at instagram. With two accounts now i feel like i live a double life. One of the mom and one of the dark, mysterious, artist. The Cocorrina account allows me to follow all the brands & personalities  that i love for their ethics and aesthetics and it’s so refreshing to login in there regularly.

What i’ve come to notice is that a lot of people don’t have the time to be creative or inspired anymore as i get a lot of messages and emails praising me for finding the time to do all that with a baby. One person i need to give a shoutout is my husband. None of it would be possible if he wasn’t here to support me and give me time and freedom to express myself the way i do today. I’m so in love with the way that we live and how things have worked out for us. Stressful and tiring yes, but everything we ever wanted. And don’t be fooled, we’re restless. Everyday, we pursue different dreams and scheme more plans for the future and the lifestyle we want to follow.

More and more the nature is calling us and who knows where the next two years find us.

What i really wanted to share with you on this fine Monday is that no matter the obstacles, you only have one life to live. Live it the way you want, don’t be afraid for drastic changes – i’ve never heard anyone regret them. If you’re not happy with the life you live, change it.

Women are fighters. Women are strong, and gentle and caring. They’re creators of life, they’re mothers and strong. They’re passionate and will overcome every obstacle. This year, i’m proud to be a woman and even more now that i’m a mom. I can’t wait to teach our little guy to love and respect women, to treat them with kindness like everything else on our planet.

Happy Women’s day lovely ladies! My heart sends love to you all.

Happy new week everyone! Here’s a quick one i did this morning while working between custom logos, palm illustrations, scanning flowers and watercoloring waves. I know, it sounds messy but i promise it was a very creative day.

J turned 10 months this week -10 months!- and i’m slowly preparing his A second a day for this year. Editing 365 videos will be quite the challenge so i’m starting early. Also, i’ve had so many requests on Instagram to do a Day in the life of Jason on youtube, so this might be next. Jason is a little superstar already and has his astonishing number of followers on my stories.

Hope you have a great week ahead. J is asleep, and I’ll be sipping a glass of nonalcoholic beer (breastfeeding mom) by the fireplace in a few seconds and catching up with the Oscars with the hubs. My start of the week couldn’t be more idyllic.

I dreamt about star trails last night, and how they dance around the earth every night. This morning, i drew exactly what i dreamt and this is the first time i created something pulled straight from a dream. Wouldn’t it be nice to put into art our dreams more often?

Every time, i try to present these “totems” with a different way. I feel that each and every one of them has a different story to tell. The La Dance de la Luna, is meant to be seen as if you’re looking at the sky from a window. Or if imagined differently, from my dream.

I really want to find a different unique name to name them, because they’re no longer really totems, and the word has been replicated so much lately. How about moonems? 😀

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw some of the behind the scenes on my stories (that i so adore sharing) of this painting. It’s almost 3 years since i painted our blue bedroom painting, and I’ve been over it the past two years already. It was so exciting to finally create something new and at such a large scale. So last week, i took about an hour for myself to just put on a white shirt and make a big mess in our studio. Too much fun.

The concept behind this one was to create some sort of a milky way / galaxy, or even perhaps an aerial photo of a very cute Mars. This picture, is only a shot of 1/10 of the painting. And although i can’t say i love all the parts of it, overall it gives me the mood that i so adore. Warm tones, movement and a big of magic (with gold and bronze touches).

To be quite frank, i had to filter this shot in order to bring out some colors from my iPhone capture. In real life, the red is a nice rusty colour, so it’s not as aggressive as it looks here. But for the sake of the post, i loved this drama. Will be sharing the final result on Insta as we hang the canvas this week. It only took 3 days to dry!!
