LIGHT DISAPPEARING, COMFORT INCREASING





Mornings are long, turning my head to see behind the lake once in a while if the day arises soon. The summer room (also known as a balcony) has been changed to a winter room. Spruce branches, moss accompanied with loud singers on the lake, winged ones. They have some new friends and I guess it is just about drawing their lines in the water to show the borders of homes of each of them.

Autumnal book Fridays continue. Yesterday after a slightly rainy bicycle trip with a warmer jacket and a woolen scarf wrapped around, a postman gave me a book, Illustrators Unlimited by Gestalten (, have you seen their space?). Back at home after hanging all those warmer clothes to dry and with a cup of tea in hand, the book took me to many new worlds. Always so much to learn and observe. Pages filled with adventures. First autumnal book Friday here. This Friday continues with binding a new sketchbook, making a new calendar behind it.

Have a good and warm weekend with apple and cinnamon scents.

Some of them are still available as original paintings, Apple Blossom Meadow also as a print in my shop, three prints left.)

  7. You know... you're so inspiring. Your words, your world... always make me feel happy and hopeful and inspired. And it's really a good thing, my dear friend.

    Anna Emilia, I've studied visual communication for my bachelors and now I am preparing myself to apply for graduate schools abroad. And the exam I had mentioned in my blog was TOEFL exam. :)

    Have a beautiful day, my gorgeous friend.xo
