Post No. 2237 ◘ Welcome Somebody / Something / The New Year

  I have to share a watercolour painting
 (8 x 12 inches, instructed by a Julie Hyde tutorial)
inspired by the dancers of  the Vienna State Opera ballet . At the turn of each  year  the Austrian Broadcasting ORF traditionally presents the
to welcome the New Year.  


It will be linked to Let's Celebrate at AJJ
where Sheila hosts this month's theme.

And I am sorry for being a bit too late this week for T-Day!
I was as busy as the most of us were with celebrating Christmas.

 I hope you all had a lovely Christmas!
Daughter and I with the Christmas grin on our faces!

Happy late T-Day to all the lovely T-Day Gals!
Thank you dear Elizabeth & Bleubeard  for hosting the weekly
T - Day - Gang - Event  always so wonderful !
You are simply the best!

And not to forget that  a new theme:
"Welcome Somebody / Something / The New Year "
is waiting for you over at the Moo Mania & More

A digital Moo made with my painting from the top for this event.

  3. OH WOW. What a fabulous painting. I would be celebrating, too. It's a beautiful, beautiful interpretation of the Blue Danube Waltz. She is almost floating through the air in this painting. The moo is awesome, too. Thanks for sharing it with us at Art Journal Journey. It's simply stunning and the perfect way to celebrate.

    You look so happy with your daughter, and that's such a beautiful photo of you and her together. You could be sisters, not mother and daughter. Seriously!

  8. Beautiful, Susi - the artwork and the ladies standing by the tree.

    How very nice to see lovely you and your beautiful daughter and I agree with what Elizabeth said.

  10. Liebe Susi, das ist ein herrliches Aquarell und ein wunderschönes Foto von deiner Tochter nd dir.
    Liebe Grüße

  11. This dancer is gorgeous Susi. I love how you gave her skirt so much depth and yet it seems so fluffy! And what a great photo of your daughter and yourself.I love it. And I like the new theme at Moo Mania. I just finished the perfect page. Home today. It is very very cold and we are getting a new furnace put in, so I am keeping the wood stove burning. But good so I can find a little art time since I have to be here all day. My daughter has left to go home :(, but in another ways she has taken all her things from Christmas so the house is a little cleaner. Happy end of the year and belated T day to you. Hugs-Erika

  12. Hi Susi,

    I only just noticed that you came to T ;-)

    I love, LOVE your ballerina - both versions. You and your daughter both look lovely as well. It's nice to see a close up photo of you.

    Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! Hugs, Eileen

  20. What a beautiful painting, Susi - love the skirt (I assume it's done with plastic wraps). It fairly epitomizes the flowing texture of a ballerina! Happy New Year, and may 2018 bring you everything in your heart's desire. xo

  31. Ein traumhaftes Aquarell hast du da gezaubert! Ich schau mir den Donauwalzer jedes Jahr so gerne im Fernsehen an, dann schalte ich ab und gehe zu Bett - mit dem Walzer und den schönen Bildern im Kopf schläft es sich gut :)
    So ein wundervolles Foto von dir und deiner Tochter! Du siehst so jung aus, und das macht nicht nur die tolle Frisur! Die sagt mir, i c h sollte auch mal wieder zum Friseur gehen :)
    Einen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr 2018 für dich und deine Familie!
    Bussi Rike ♥♥♥

  32. Oh my goodness Susi, this painting is absolutely and totally AMAZING!! So much movement and brilliant proportions and everything, quite apart from the wonderful background, - wow, just wow!!!!

    I love the Viennese dancers, we watched last year's version with my grand daughter many times on youtube, she was completely mesmerised by the dancing, the beautiful surroundings where they filmed it and of course the music. Off to check out the tutorial you linked to now :o)

    All the best for a healthy, happy and creative 2018!!

  33. Your dancer is so beautiful! She really turned out lovely.

  34. Deine Tänzerin mit dem tollen Rock in Folientechnik sieht super aus. Sie tanzt schon mal ins neue Jahr voraus.
    Schönes Mama-Tochterfoto mit Weihnachtslächeln. Gefällt mir sehr gut.
    Liebe Grüße und Guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr.

  36. Wow Susi! 8x12! Very impressive! I love her and the colors you chose for her!!She is simply beautiful and this goes perfectly with the waltz!
    And I am ever so happy you have shared this beautiful photo of you and your daughter- I could have sworn you were sisters!! Fresh and vibrant-that is how I see the two of you! Beautiful!
    Happy Wonderful New Year my dear sweet friend!
    lots of love,

  39. Ihr beiden Hübschen seid ja größer als der Weihnachtsbaum, ein so schönes Foto, Susi, da freu ich mich drüber!
    Die Tänzerin ist so wunderbar federleicht, voller Grazie von dir dargestellt, wie schön auch der Rock sich auflöst, du malst einfach immer ganz großartig.
    Ich freu mich auf neue Bilder von dir im neuen Jahr. Komm gut rüber und bleib gesund!
    Herzlichst Ulrike

  40. Your painting is spectacular, I can just imagine your beautiful ballerina dancing to the Blue Danube Waltz! As your know this is my favourite waltz and it is such a wonderful way to welcome in the New Year 😁. It's so nice to see you and your daughter's smiling faces and I'm glad you had a nice Christmas too! Wishing you a very Happy New Year filled with love, happiness and peace! J 😁

  42. Süß schaut Ihr aus, Ihr zwei wunderschönen Weihnachtsengel vor dem Weihnachtsbaum :) und hinreißend schön ist die Tänzerin geworden. Dem Tutorial Link bin ich auch gleich hinterher. Toll, was Du immer findest! Und dem youtubelink zum Donauwalzer bin ich auch gleich gefolgt und immer noch ganz hin und weg. Den restlichen Abend werde ich nur diese Melodie im Kopf haben und damit ins neue Jahr "tanzen" im dreiviertel Takt versteht sich ;) was für ein majestätischer Übergang.
