Allora, let's go!

Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important.

This is a new illustration i did for my dear friend Anne-Claire. She's a fabulous Lady who has lived through some hard times lately. Now, after a bad depression, she's getting into full swing again and i just saw her riding this vanilla scooter, wearing a pink dress and a fancy, handmade bag. This is a Look from Kate Spade - and it fits her so well,. She's  a talented needleworker and knits and crochets the sweetest things, But she also is a great writer and just started her very own blog to tell her story. If you'd like to laugh and cry at the same time, have a look at it here.

Have a sweet weekend my dear ones - can't wait to have a good blog-hop and come visit you all!


  1. Dear, dear Martina,

    You have done it again, creating a colorful representation that shines. Her colors, the scooter, THE SEA in the is all stunning! And I just visited her and her writing, WOW! Raw and yet refined.

Thank you sweet friend for coming over to comment. Yes, the list of travelers for my link party has grown, but a few have dropped out, which is disappointing for these peoples' creativity will be sorely missed. But, let the fun begin on Friday!!!!
