MORE DREAMY PAINTINGS

Orange Ink Watercolor and Gouache painting over vintage paper by Danita Art. Surreal whimsical Victorian family on a portrait over vintage ledger papers.

After the amazing feedback I had from my latest dreamy ink paintings I knew I had to make more paintings like this.

Working without a care is always a delight and now that I am feeling creative I wanted to make a few more of these lovely paintings.

Victorian ghostly images and photos inspired an amazingly beautiful watercolor ink gouache painting over a 19th 20th century used school ledger book paper

The crispy vintage paper lets the ink flow in a very unusual way, creating images with a ghostly quality.

Ink Watercolor and Gouache combined over a vintage late 19th or early 20th century school book on this Danita original painting that remind of amily ties going all the way to the Victorian families portraited on vintage photographs and other images.They are perfect for the ideas that I have on my mind now, combining memories from a distant past from my family and friends.

Original watercolor ink and gouache by Danita Art. Families and history make us what we are today. We are all migrants and we all belong to another place.Life experiences and ties between our ancestors make us what we are today. We stand on the shoulders of the ones that came before us to be what we are today, and even tough they may be long gone, their memories still live within us.

Victorian images and vintage photographs combined with the art of Danita to create a collection of Ink and Watercolor papers to make original ghostly and surreal images that invoke family and migrationI wanted to remember that we are all connected, we are all belong somewhere else thanks to our connections from our pasts. At some point, our families were migrants too. They arrived to new places, they were received with love and respect and thrived into what we are today.

Original ink and watercolor painting by Danita, linking ancestors and migration with surreal ghostly images of shadows of a distant past that live with us today in our ancestors and our memoriesThat is why I chose to divert from making realistic, detailed faces. They are like the memories of our ancestors, faded in time and space but still with us, on what we remember of them, our our family traditions, on our culture.

Even after all this time, lest us not forget that they came before us, some from distant places, always looking for a better future for themselves and their descendants. We admire them for their courage, and thank them for taking the risk of leaving  what they knew to try to make a better world for us who came before them.
