Music Sunday 33

Dear readers! 
It's the last day of this year and it went by so fast. It has been extraordinary and quite wonderful year for me.
I have met so many nice and inspirational people (mostly in the internet :D, but still), watched way too many TV series , traveled to Belgium and Sweden and finally painted as much as I wanted and needed. Also I had a plaster on my leg and I kind a gave up on photography, but I hope for the best. 
I wish you all to have an amazing and magical New 2013 Year and for all your wishes to come true! :)

Dear readers! 
It's already 11th November and today is the Lāčplēsis day in my country - Latvia.
(On this date, Latvians commemorate not the end of World War I in 1918 (as in many other countries), but the victory over the Bermontians at the battle of Riga the following year)
Also I have been making some sketches for my future artworks and I'm now also the manager of Stylestanza (fashion and style website) tumblr account http://stylestanza.tumblr.com/.

(the graphics for this and 4 next Music Sundays is one of the previous sunsets I captured in my town)
Have a wonderful week everyone! :)

It's already November. Autumn holidays passed so incredibly fast. I finished the diorama and made two new paintings - one for gishwhes (which I can't post, because the scavenger hunt isn't over yet) and "The Wanderer" illustration (which you can see in this post) made with watercolors, colored ink and watercolor pencils. Also If you have some time and willingness:

Also It's GISHWHES week and I also will just try not to procrastinate this week.
Finally finished listening the audiobook of "The Fault in Our Stars" by John Green.

So It's already 21st October, damn, time runs so fast. 
So there was this art contest for Latvian writer A. Eglītis 100th jubilee and I got 2nd place. I feel so great, although It always sucks to be in 2nd place. It's like I wasn't good enough in some kind of way. 
Anyhow, I will totally buy for the prize, myself a wacom tablet I've been craving for such a long time. 
Can't wait to finally get used to digital drawings too. :) ^^
