ABOUT WEATHER & FRIENDS FROM AFAR


Dear You,

Never I guessed how many stories I would hear. Never I imagined all the weather reports that I have heard from you. The detailed descriptions of your surroundings, season or the day that you have had or the day that you are heading to. I love to keep on reading this book. It feels like traveling. A moment in rain, a moment in a beach, a moment in your baking kitchen. Thank you for being able to do so. Thank you with a curtsey!

Here the weather report is blue skied, brittle shadowed and long beamed. With walking and humming with birds. Breathing the new spring air and collecting freckles on nose.

This is a portrait that I painted for Claude Monique. The story of the painting is a Haitian proverb. Tipa Tipa ti swazo fe nish li. Bit by bit the tiny bird makes her nest.

Bit by bit I pour a cup of tea to all of you! Happy spring, happy March!

Hearts.

  6. Wonderful portrait and proverb. The morning is dull and flat feeling here in San Francisco. There is rain. I hear cars and buses moving through puddles. It is 10:30 AM and I am without breakfast. I need to venture out with my umbrella and follow your lead. I will walk and hum with birds today too.

  15. Hi Anna

    Thank you so much for the illustration. Two people that are very close to me. My sister and my best friend were both so in love with the illustration. My sister said wait a second that looks just like you. I'm really glad that someone with such a great heart has made this portrait. I am looking for a vintage frame for it. I think I will give it to my dad for his birthday. He'd often speak in proverbs. Have a lovely day.
