Me and Mona , digital portrait, work in progress.

Today in the afternoon I started this portrait of me and Mona . I have tried a more painterly approach here, and I like how is coming.

Off to Napa for some sun and heat tomorrow and Saturday, cant' wait!
We have been having 13 C and grey gloomy days over here lately...kind of depressing!

Have a nice weekend everyone!

Mommy fun time! during pregnancy. From your bump, with love!

9 months are long....and I imagine the baby gets pretty bored in there.
I think his way of having fun is trying to surprise mommy every day or almost, in a different way.
SOS he pressed "alla of the above" button!!
Better leaving the room ! :)

Each of them was wearing some steam punk accessorie.

How cravings work....during pregnancy.

Cravings during pregnancy.
digital illustration.

Moms-to-be ( and me included!) have been experiencing weird cravings for years, still no once can pin down a definitive reason why.
 I am on a "only-carbs-craving" roll lately, mainly pizza, or bread with cheese and tomato or pasta with parmesan and tomato! ... the Italian side of the baby is showing already!
Buon appetito a me :)
