No matter how much I loved the winter, which was so nice and beautiful, I am so happy the spring is here. Not much snow anymore. The days are longer. I have seen the first spring flowers in bloom.
The last time I drew a wolf, I said I would never draw one again. In fact, to never draw anything ever never again. Some time ago I saw a picture of a wolf. Probably, photographed by the the same photographer of the same wolf that I have already drawn twice before. Just slightly photographed from a different angle. Well, I could not resist making a third attempt. As always, I’m not happy with the result. But my husband says, as usual, it is good enough. Hmm, I better not say ever never again 😉
It was so much fun and so relaxing to draw the first one so I did two more. Luckily my husband had one more marker. I said the one I already posted had two many sections. Well, these have the same amount. I should have planned the lines a bit better. My husband suggested I draw even more of them the we can use them as wallpaper. Yeah right ! Hah-hah-haaa.
I yesterday happened to see a nice clip on YouTube, by the Craft Train, how to make a doodle hand print art. I remembered that I have exactly the same color yellow and purple drawing papers for handcraft at home. Here is my version. I made way too many sections compared to the ones I saw on YouTube. Anyway, it was so nice and very relaxing. I’d love to make an other one right the way but, my marker pen, felt tip pen run out of ink.
Today we were in Iittala at the Naïve art exhibition together with good friends. It’s celebrating it’s 30th year this year. Last year we were there for the first time. It is so nice. All the paintings make you feel so good. Lots of cute animals and flowers which I love. One walks around smiling broadly. There are so many small details in the paintings to find out, to discover. After some thinking, I have to say my favorite artist this year is Riitta Kolari. Our friends live not far away from Iittala and asked us to come to them for afternoon coffee. Thank you so much for the nice company at the exhibition and for the good coffee.
This is the second time I have drawn a wolf. First one was seven years ago. My goodness, time flies ! I need to draw, draw, draw to get better.
Also this year every household received a coloring card from the Finnish post office. As I said last year, it’s probably meant for kids to color but why not seniors as well.
. . . by the drawing bug 😉
One last drawing for now. I’m going to not draw anything in the nearest future 😀
I hope you all had a great New Year’s Eve and Day. Here are some photos from yesterday, my first day of the year. A few centimeters of new fresh white snow in the morning covering the remains of the New Year’s fireworks. A new drawing which I’m not satisfied with at all. And, my first time, beetroot blue cheese casserole. It was yummy.
