...and they lived happily ever after.


Hello my dear friends!!!  Currently I'm working on my new fashion sketchbook and here is a sneak peek from some of the sketches I've done. To able to translate ideas in to something visually new is magic! It takes so long to make an easy flowing painting, to make sure the ideas and execution is done effortlessly... I hope it shows here...

Sometimes I wish I could close my eyes, tap my heels 3 times and land in the one of my San Francisco and Napa Valley, CA inspired illustrations.  I always will love SF!  I found great inspiration but so little time on my trip, I would like to return again by the end of summer .... or maybe Fall.  My husband and I will be in Beverly Hills again in September, so perhaps we will take another wine tour in the Southern California .... or another Balloon Ride:)  It was a lot of fun and very romantic.

If you like to see my pictures from that trip, I posted daily updates in my instagram @ lanasartstudio
I found it more convenient to unload my art process/daily inspiration on IG and it is easier to keep in touch with my followers as well.   So, please follow me there and leave a comment if you have any advice on your social media experiences.

And as always I love to see your feedback for my work, and especially for the custom pieces.
( you can contact me directly at lanasart@yahoo.com about custom paintings... but during the summer month spaces are limited)

Most of the time I'm so involved with my work, and don't often enough remember to thank you who trust in me. You are the reason for why I do what I do, and I'm so grateful for all your comments and feedback - it means a lot to me! with love, Lana

  7. These are awesome:) Watercolour is such a hard medium to master too. I find it harder than oil paints!
