Such a stunning little painting! I love the colors, it is awesome!
Setting the world on colors.
A good day for me is the one I begin and end a painting. I love to start my days with a brand new Arches paper to put some colors on, and I also love to get my work done before daylight fades and to have something to show my family by dinner time.
In a sense I live the life I always wanted, striving to create beauty in a world that needs it so much. Striving, yes: don't get me started on all the effort it takes to be a landscape watercolor painter in Brazil! I wouldn't have it any other way, though. Seeing all the beautiful colors mix with water and stain the paper, creating shapes as if the water were alive, never reapeating itself, revealing places that until them existed only in my mind... it really wins my heart as it did on that first day, decades ago, when I first put brush to paper.
On a great day I also sell something and I can dream about the faraway place my watercolor or ACEO will call home from that day on. Those do make for the days when the uncertainties of being an artist haunt me. Then I recall that art and beauty is my God-sent mission in life, and the colors seem to brighten once again.

Owner, Artist And Everything Else
As many other artists, I started painting as soon as I could handle a brush :-) I got my graphic design degree and then decided to pursue my watercolorist career for good... I simply love to feel the wet colors mixing through the paper.

I ship by Priority mail with insurance. Currently, the Brazilian Post Office isn't providing international tracking at reasonable prices for Priority mail (Etsy's Standard Shipping), so the tracking number used will only work until the package leaves Brazil. If for some reason international tracking is required, please select the pricier "EMS - international tracking" shipping upgrade option that will be presented to you in your shopping cart.
Estimated shipping times: It usually takes around 15 days for a package to arrive but it might take longer due to unforeseen delays by the Brazilian Post Office or the Brazilian Customs. Selecting the "EMS - International tracking" shipping upgrade should shorten the delivery time.
I'll ship to your Etsy account's address (please keep it up to date).
