Spring, no, summer has started!

School holidays are over and I'm slowly getting back into my daily routine. Didn't have anything to show last week, which means I'm now one week behind with my weekly sketches. But no worries, I'm sure I'll be able to make one extra some time in the next weeks :-)

But first the most important thing (for me at least): spring has well and truly started, we even had summer temperatures the last few days. And it feels so good. Oh, I truly am a sun lover, I hate cold and snow and dark grey days. I can hardly believe that only 3 weeks ago we still had snow! So for those of you that are still struggling with snow and ice: spring will come, just wait and see! Here are some pictures to bring you in the mood :-)

 Our rose bush. It had so many buds already when it started snowing again, so I was worried there wouldn't be any flowers. But see: they all came out :-)


our dog can't get enough of the sun ... 



 hmm, this smells sooo good. This one also had buds since a few months already, but the snow didn't bother it, luckily!

Our cherry-tree .... Look at that sky!

And now for my weekly sketch:


She is looking either very sleep-deprived or very sad .... Oh well ...

And here's some progress with my painting:


Still loving experimenting with some new techniques.

That's it for this week, except for the funnies and thinkies of course :-)





some comfort for those of you still struggling with winter ... 










This is a test admission for the academy of the arts in China .... Wow!


Linking this post to Paint Party Friday and looking forward to visiting some of my favorite blogs. Thanks so much for stopping by, it's truly appreciated! 

Wishing you a wonderful end of the week and lots of joy. Take care! ♥ ♥ ♥

Quick post

The kids have two weeks holiday from school, and somehow I never get much art done then. It's not as if they're still small and need looking after, one is 17 and the other is 15, but still. My daily routine is just that bit different and it's hard to fit the art in.

I just managed to do a sketch. Not very happy with this one, somehow she reminds me of a dog, but, well, it IS a sketch ...

I did paint a bit, and oh, it's so much fun. I always love trying out new things. I get bored easily so I need to change things up a bit every now and then ;-)


And that's all for this week. Except for the funnies and thinkies of course :-)

Here goes ....



















Linking up to Paint Party Friday, the weekly blog hop-party where everyone is welcome!

Thanks so much for your visit. I hope your day is kind to you, and I wish you a warm and joyful weekend! 
See you next week ♥ ♥ ♥

March is almost over ....

Can't believe we're almost April. Probably because the weather has been so cold and winter-y up till now. It's getting better though, slowly but steadily. Can't wait to finally be rid of those bare trees. I long for green and blossoms and walking outside without a coat.

Since it's a new month, I made another wallpaper. This is how it looks:


and here's where you can download it!

I've been having fun with my new painting. It doesn't look as if much happened on there but I added quite a few more layers to it.


And lastly my weekly sketch of course:



Ending with my funnies and thinkies :-)


















That's it for this week! I'm off to bed now. Will be linking this to Paint Party Friday tomorrow. Thanks for your visit! I wish you a pleasant day and a wonderful weekend full of Easter eggs ;-) 

Take care, I'll be back next week ♥ ♥ ♥
