Kiev

Dear Friends, I apologize for the looong absence. After the Europe trip that I mentioned in the last post, there were some serious unavoidable circumstances(dad being hospitalized), that prevented me from creating anything or updating the blog. Even afterwards, for a long time, I was just not in the right frame of mind.
    In the meantime, while trying to bounce back, I discovered many new forms of art that I like very much and have been experimenting with them...including card making, art journaling and water colours. I also started a facebook page mysecretnest ... which you guys can check out!
                                                                                                     I am going to share the travelogue that I promised last time. Here is the first page...


This is Saint Andrews church in Kiev. I attempted to paint it with inktense pencils and I am quite satisfied with the result. In the picture, the golden dots on the dome are not very visible.
          It is a beautiful building and a beautiful area. The St Andrew's Descent is a street where all artists in Kiev put up stalls to display their wares. It is practically an open air art gallery...lots of inspiration for creative people and loads of fun just wandering through the street, looking at beautiful hand crafted things...Its my favourite place in Kiev. Be sure to visit it if you are ever here..cheers!
