I've been drawing a lot, just when I thought I had no motivation for it... I think the comments helped, (thank you very much!). Then, very often, just at the moment I say something, or write it down, I begin to do exactly the contrary. Last time, I told a friend I'd never cut my hair short again... And less than a week later I had it cut shorter than ever...

Little fantasy, about things I find nice, places I'd love to visit...

I can't wait for the weather to warm up so I'll be able to take those diving lessons I promised myself. Always been scared of the water, and now I can't seem to stop drawing fish and ocean related things.

Petit voyage

I've had trouble finding things I wanted to draw, lately. I had always a "good" reason to do something else. I finally found images I liked and just did them, just to get into it again.
This is in Mongolia, but I don't remember if the family is genuine or comes from a movie.

This is a house in Troyes, in the Champagne area in France. With a lovely scanner print right in the middle of the image!

This is in Brasil, in an island when the little green parrots are apparently nice pets for the children.

And this is a stamp from French Guyana, where one of my best friends lives. I miss her!

I drew them all on one page at first then cut the page in pieces because the whole result was horrible...
and I still don't feel much like drawing. I've got a bad motivation problem...


Nice surprise for me the other morning because Captain Elaine sent me this award :

I love Elaine's journal and paintings, so I was glad!

Proximidade is described as follows:'

This blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes for self-aggrandizement!

Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!'

The rules are: This blog award should be sent to your favorite eight bloggers and they, in turn should forward to eight of their favorites. You should include the text for Proximidade (above) in your announcement blog.

I'm a bit impressed with the award description. I'm not spending much time blogging, these days, and I'm not sure I'll be able to deserve the kind words in the future...

Anyway it's nice to receive ; ) and now I'm passing it to eight of my favorite blogs :


Et voilà!

3 bouquins, 6 cartes

The holidays are over, I'm back from Paris, back to work, broke, and satisfied - it was great!
I haven't drawn anything for weeks. This is the last thing I did along with the calendar pages : books I've read in december.

I've used pink for the background just because I could! Because I have pink watercolor paint now! And light blue, so I now have 10 different colors to play with.

Made these little greeting cards with my scans, Flickr's toys and paper and glue.

It says "Bonne Année" on the cards, and that means "Happy New Year".
So, HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone who passes here!
