It's raining today in Argentina...

Hi everybody!

It's now spring in Argentina and today is just a rainy day...
But even more than that, it's my blog's creation day, and also the day my baby got 17 month old, and also the day my baby girl inside me got 7 month (still 2 months before I'll be able to see her face!) and... it's my brother's day: St Charles !

What a day!

Thanksfuly is my baby boy is quite calm and I can seat in front of the computer to write you this words... don't know for how long!

Let me just introduce myself then:

I will call myself as CJY, that's my artistic name.
I am a french painter, mostly oriented to realistic painting. I painted with acrylic paint on canvas and did several exposures of my work with great feedback.
But since I became a mom (and very soon will be mom of two), my possible working time suddenly became very very short. So I decided to dedicate myself to miniature watercolor, and to make them as pendant jewels.

Of course I can't help staying in my style: mostly realistic!

Miniature realistic painting is such an interesting thing:
- As it's watercolor, you don't have a lot to "repaint", that means if you failed with a color, that's it, you can trow it away!
- As it's miniature, every little point is very very important : let the white point in the eye of a dog just a bit too far and he will just seem like he squints!

But I am a perfectionist, and I love to do this just because of these difficulties!

Well, that will be all for today I think! If you feel you want to see my work, you can go there:
