Such strange weather outside
It rains and then the sun shines
At certain times the sky is a deep blue
and reminds me of a walk I went on
some time ago, with you

The snowdrops bloom wherever I go
their flowers are white as snow
I keep my hands warm with gloves
and hope that warm days will arrive soon

Progress / Paintings

I almost finished the Flower Poster I've been working on for a while now. Ah I also started another little mushroom painting. The sun is shining and it immediately makes me feel happy.

I finally got the change to redesign my little store and must admit that I am quite satisfied how it turned out. Yesterday I illustrated a notebook, I hope it'll find a loving owner.

A walk in rain, the touch of hands, the intricate details, red lipstick on a cup, soft and mellow songs from the record player, a piece of cake and a little silver fork, sweet kisses, memories and words, exchanging thoughts, rain on the window, sun rays after the rain, hair put up with bobby pins, slowly dancing to music, angry voices, tapping on the wooden floor, blue tiles in the bathroom, cream in coffee, sleepy eyes, dark mascara, gloomy clouds, soft touch, loving feeling  

A walk

A little basket with treasures I found
three small stones, pinecones, wood
some yellow-green lichen 
there is much to find on the ground

First warm days of the year

the days will brighten
spring will enlighten
your senses 

The past two days were quite sunny. The little crocuses (Crocus tommasinianu) finally bloomed and I took the chance to paint one. They are such precious little spring flowers. I am beyond excited for all the beautiful flowers to bloom again, to plant some little ones in my garden and enjoy the sunny weather.

A Spring Day

such lovely delightful weather outside
see how the spring flowers grow 
 next to each other side by side 

When I saw riding home on my bicycle I saw a tiny bee, many yellow, purple crocuses and some snowdrops. Their heads were just taking a peak from under the ground (like they wanted to take a look if spring had arrived yet). I hope they will bloom soon.

on a sunday

I've been working on a little poster of flowers for the past few days (and on an essay for school). Finally I finished the first row of flowers, I will add another below. If you have any suggestions which flowers I should paint please tell me! Yesterday I was looking around in a thrift store with my love and found the most beautiful little book about trees. My little cactus grew much since I adopted him and I think he looks quite happy. The days are getting longer, but it still feels like a long cold winter.

typewriter - the little world beneath our feet


my cold hands try to hold on to nothing
time is slipping right through me
it takes me several places 
and I see several faces 
It changes me 
but I stay the same

January has passed, February has come

Tremella mesenterica, also called yellow brain fungus!
When I went on a walk on a rainy day in February I couldn't help spotting these yellow fungus everywhere! Their colour is quite outstanding and they feel funny.

Mushrooms are truly one of the most fascinating sources of inspiration. I admire their incredible variety and cherish those autumn days where little wonders grow everywhere! I've made quite a few mushroom paintings already. By putting lots of different mushrooms next to each other in one painting, I think that their magical appearance can be captured quite well.
