   I didn't go to Art school. I am a self - taught artist.
I don't know how I started to draw with pencil. Earlier, I drew with ink and I loved it.
I found a great pencil drawings and I wanted to see if I can do it the same way as those marvelous artists I was so mesmerised with.
As always with me, when I'm interested in something, I start researching.
Since I didn't know where to start, I searched about the technique and drawing materials, watched many tutorials '' How to...'', I bought pencils that I needed, even those I didn't need, from 5H to 8B, Sketch pad and I started drawing.
  At first, like the others, I drew what I saw somewhere and what I liked.
I've been practicing by looking at demanding drawings of great and serious artists. Perhaps it was too ambitious ,but I believed in myself. And here is the result! :-)

  I am the kind of person who is not attracted by simple and easy things, they can't inspire me and motivate me. Luckily for me my talent and my inner force didn't betray me. They were on my side.
  After a couple of ''light'' drawings (two or three) ,I had to give to myself a bigger  task. I took a drawing of an artist and I tried to draw what I saw. My first efforts of conquering this technique were objectified as couple of reproductions.
And there are six of them. They were the reason I decided to stick with this technique.
  This drawing is one of those six.
There's nothing like a feeling that you succeeded in what you wanted.

  Life is all about having big goals and striving for accomplishment. Everyone whose name is deeply engraved in this world's history came to that by dreaming large, because they dreamed more than others, because they believed more, because they worked more,... And it all started from a tiny idea and a great dream.
    My journey as an artist my life worthwhile to live. I just loved it!
  Thanks for join me!

Graphite on paper! Reproduction by Jelena Misic (original painting Brian Duey)

     Nisam isla u umetnicku skolu,niti sam se skolovala u tom pravcu. Samouka sam.
Ne znam bas tacno da vam kazem kada i kako sam pocela da crtam olovkom. Ranije sam crtala tusem i volela sam taj pravac. Naisla sam na odlicne radove u olovci, i htela da probam mogu li i ja da nacrtam to isto, kao i ti sjajni umenici ciji su me radovi odusevili.
Kao sto je i slucaj sa mnom, kada me nesto interesuje, pocnem sto vise da istrazujem.
Posto nisam znala odakle da pocnem, citala sam dosta o tehnici i o materijalima, gledala sam dosta tutorijala tipa ''Kako da...'' , kupila sam olovke koje su mi bile potrebne, cak i one koje i nisu, od 5H do 8B, blok za crtanje kvalitetnijeg papira i pocela da crtam.
   Na samom pocetku,kao i svi, crtala sam ono sto sam videla negde i sto bi mi se dopalo. Nalazila sam zahtevne radove, vec afirmisanih umetnika i gledajuci ih, vezbala. Mozda je to bilo i preambiciozno, ali pretpostavljam da sam verovala u sebe. I eto rezultata  ! ;)
Ja sam od onih ljudi koji ne vole lake i jednostavne stvari, jer me ne inspirisu i ne motivisu. Srecom, talenat i ''Ja to mogu'' me nisu izdali i bili su na mojoj strani.
  Posle par ''laksih'' crteza (dva,tri), morala sam sebi da zadam tezi zadatak. Uzela sam crtez jednog umetnika i pocela da crtam ono sto vidim. Moj prvi pokusaj da ovladam ovom tehnikom je bio sa par reprodukcija. Od svih crteza reprodukcija imam ukupno sest. Oni su i razlog zbog kog sam i dalje u ovoj tehnici. Ovaj crtez je jedan od tih sest.
  U zivotu treba stremiti najboljem i imati visoka ocekivanja od sebe. Svako cije ime nesto na ovom svetu znaci, dosao je do toga jer je imao velike snove, jer su sanjali jace od drugih, jer su verovali vise, jer su radili vise,... I sve je krenulo od ideje... i velikog sna!
    Moje putovanje kao umetnik je vredno zivota! Volim ga!

       Hvala vam sto ste mi se pridruzili i ovog puta i bili tu da ispratite i ovaj post!
    Saljem ljubav svima sirom planete!

Glass of Rosé

   Happy Friday,everyone!!! :)) I hope you have some wonderful plans this weekend!!!
In this post I'll talk about glass... And I'll talk about painting on the glass...Matter-of-fact,about hand painted WINE glasses! Don't worry,we'll talk about wine,too. :)) It's Friday,right?!

  I started painting on object by accident about 2-3 years ago while searching for a birthday present for my friend. So,it definitely has to be something original and meaningful. That's when I decided that I wanted the present to be beautiful,yet functional,and hand-painted by me.
Whit this in mind,it wasn't too difficult to figure out my next move!
  I decided to extend my talents of painting to a few wine glasses so she'd think of me every time she used them.
 These are the first :

So,what do you think? :))

Painting on glass is emerging as one of the most popular trends in crafting whether you want to add a stained glass look to a set of hand-painted glasses for your table top,you'll love Plaid's array of ideas and inspiration for your next glass painting project.

When it comes to glass paint,there are many options available to the decorative painter and the hobbyist.
 You can use :
  • Acrylic color
  • Glass color and liner
  • Puffy paint
  • Colorful gel pens,...

Some of my glasses!

In the next posts,you will see more wine glasses!

Hey,it's Friday! It's wine O'clock somewhere! :-):-) 
I chose for you several types of Rosé. I'm a big fan of Rosé wines and I am delighted that the public is starting to rediscover and enjoy them also.

  Dry rosé is popular, particularly during the summer months. Its style, traditionally dry and light, appeals both to white and red wine drinkers seeking something cool and refreshing to help beat the heat. Winemakers produce rosé by preventing the red grapes from extended contact with the juice which gives red wines their robust flavor and tannic structure or as a result of the saignée process. The Mediterranean nations, most notably France, Italy and Spain, reign supreme in rosé production, but an increasing number of American wineries have begun producing world-class rosé wines.

Ameztoi 2010 Rubentis Rosé Getariako Txakolina

A lovely, lightly fizzy, low-alcohol pink, this wine is practically a Basque summer in a bottle. Its color is a pale blush, created from a small amount of white grapes blended into the red. Its flavors are light and hint at ripe berries with refreshing citrus. Try it with simple fish dishes, with an egg-based brunch or with sheeps' milk cheeses.

Rating: 14/20

Goldeneye 2011 Vin Gris of Pinot Noir
Anderson Valley, California

A Duckhorn Wine Company brand, Goldeneye specializes in Pinot Noir produced at their estate winery in Mendocino County's Anderson Valley. Their Vin Gris of Pinot Noir showcases the lighter side of the famously delicate Burgundian varietal. On the nose, it displays fragrant aromas of ruby red grapefruit, strawberry and watermelon. In the mouth, the wine is crisp and acidic, yet balanced by a slight sweetness.

Rating: 13.5/20

Château Bonnet 2010 Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé
Bordeaux, France

This is rosé made in a truly classic style with rose-pink color, medium body, fruity flavors yet a dry finish. It is simple, food-friendly and exactly what you would hope for from a modestly-priced rosé. The wine works very well with picnic foods like cold, fried chicken, potato salad and pound cake but it should work fairly well with any summer food you're craving.

Rating: 13/20

Château de Trinquevedel 2010 Tavel Cuvée Traditionnelle
Rhône, France

A vibrant, ruby pink, this wine's color echoes its content. Complex, robust yet surprisingly elegant, this very sophisticated rosé offers restrained strawberry, tart cherry, pomegranate and honeysuckle aromas and flavors with citrus acidity and a note of bone dry, mouthwatering minerality on the finish. Serve this absolute classic with traditional southern French foods like ratatouille, fresh goats' milk cheeses, steamed mussels or simply a dish of Niçoise olives.

Rating: 15/20

Falesco 2010 Vitiano Rosato
Umbria, Italy

We think this is one of the summer's best buy wines. It packs intense flavor and complexity for its $10 price tag, with rose petal and strawberry candy aromas, tart berry and stone fruit flavor with a hint of minerality on the lingering finish. An extremely food-friendly wine, dry yet robustly fruity, it will work with a variety of foods. Serve it with anything from spice-rubbed, grilled chicken, pork or even lamb to tuna Niçoise or a grilled vegetable platter.

Rating: 13.5/20

Martian Ranch & Vineyard 2009 Grenache Rosé
Santa Ynez Valley, California

Made in a particularly robust style of rosé, this wine boasts a gorgeous, deep ruby color. On the nose, it offers cherry candy and wild strawberry aromas. It is mouth-filling without being too robust, with berry flavors and a pleasing cranberry bitterness at the back of the palate. Serve with wood-fired pizzas, grilled beef, falafel, fish tacos or just about any other full-bodied summer food.

Rating: 14/20

Lasseter Family Winery 2010 Enjoué
Sonoma Valley, California

A boutique, eco-friendly winery in Sonoma Valley, Lasseter includes 95 acres of organically-farmed vineyards. Their 2010 Enjoué (French for "joyful") is composed of 64 per cent Syrah, 31 per cent Mourvèdre and 5 per cent Grenache. On the nose, it offers a fragrant bouquet of fresh strawberry, ruby red grapefruit and mango. In the mouth, this well-structured and refreshing rosé reveals a racy acidity and enduring finish.

Rating: 13.5/20

Tasca d'Almerita NV Regaleali Le Rose
Sicily, Italy

Made from indigenous Sicilian grapes, this bone-dry yet utterly juicy wine is a surprise to the palate. Bright acidity and cherries dominate on both the nose and in the mouth, but the wine is big enough to work well with surprisingly rich foods from grilled meats to fettuccine with summer tomatoes to turkey meatloaf.

Rating: 13.5/20

Villa Creek 2010 Pink
Paso Robles, California

This is an extremely interesting wine in a style you just don't find in American rosé. A beautiful salmon color, it is light-bodied with subtle honey and rose petal aromas, bright red fruit flavors on the mid-palate and a dry, mineral finish. Subtly attractive, it is refreshing on its own or try it with light, summery foods like a cold, poached salmon salad, country pâté or asparagus quiche.

Rating: 13.5/20
