SURROUNDED BY FOREST


Hello from under a bright blue sky. Such beautiful days for the summer to start to wave a slow good-bye. Starry nights, crescent of the Moon hiding low and yellow. Stars that wave from the darkening sky. Then the needles of the Sun in the morning pinching again. A farm wedding, long car rides, raspberries from an allotment garden and beautiful concerts. Swimming, blueberries, bonfires.

Last week the photo above arrived. It is taken by Liesl and of her own arm. With a drawing of mine tattooed on it, a commission of this drawing. A sweet girl that carries a small forest with her.

How are you?

Wind in the birch tree leaves, have a good day!

(The photo is by Liesl. Thank you Liesl for asking the permission and buying the copyright to use my drawing.)

  3. What a great tattoo, I'm hoping to get my on my 25th birthday which is very soon! Also I'm glad you're enjoying your summer, it's been raining in Manila. I miss the sun so much.
