Three years ago, Ellie went to sleep in her tent and never woke up.
Today is the last day of World Watercolor Month 2016. Thank you Doodlewash for organising it and thank you everyone for taking the time to drop by and being so supportive with your kind words. It means a lot to me :)
Instead of sharing a sketch or a painting with you tonight, I made this video, just to say Thank You!
Have you ever met your totem animal(s)?
Below are a few sketches of the sleeveless, box style hooded cardigan I’ve been knitting intermittently for the last few months…
:) YOU – and I – need to remember this:
Why do we always feel that we have to work hard on ourselves? On our relationships with others? On our job? Well, on everything. Why do we believe that everything has to be hard work? Why can’t we allow ourselves to deserve an easier way?
Why do we believe so hard in the “no pain, no gain” motto. Why not being easy on ourselves and allowing ourselves to take the easy route so we can fully relax into it and enjoy it, instead of choosing pain and hardship?
I have been painting a lot lately… To unwind and center myself after some pretty hectic days, trying to keep up with Boy’s home-ed schedule.
This is what our artful morning resulted in:
We first started with a bit of dancing, to shake off the cob webs…
Then following the theme of dots and pointillism, Boy made a painting of an explosion of fireworks…
I would be very surprised if anyone could make any sense out of all these pictures… You are more than welcome to have a go in the comments at the bottom of this post though!
“A picture is worth a thousand words” they say… I’ll save you the reading then :)
