Hi everyone! Just wanted to wish you all a happy Easter. I have been busy working on many illustrations, and finishing up a few new paintings. The belly dancer mermaid in the rose garden has been finished, after a small delay, due to my busy life but she has been fully painted! and I will be posting her soon. Here is a quick preview of another large painting, 11 by 14 inches in size, of an Egyptian Queen Mermaid! I am still in the process of inking her, using sakura micron inking pens, and I will be adding hieroglyphs to this painting as well. I have always been inspired by the mystery of ancient Egyptian culture. I am fascinated with the secrets of the pyramids and hieroglyphs. I am also taking some time off from painting this month to experiment with international cooking recipes. Cooking is one of my other passions besides painting with watercolors. I hope everyone enjoys some good chocolate! I will talk to you all soon! ~Sofi! :D
