Drawing challenge / Treehouse
A few weeks ago, to be exactly the 14th of June i had
been mowing the lawn.
It was a warm and sunny, but rather windy day and afterwards
i was sitting under the birches enjoying a cool drink and the
sight, as well as the scent, of freshly mown grass.
When suddenly i heard an unfamiliar sound above
Looking up i saw a big sheet of paper falling out of a birch tree,
and ening up there, before my very eyes, was a plan of a house.
I was pretty amazed (and yes they are building a new house in a
neighboring street) and my imagination kicked off :)
; a house falling out of the trees, a treehouse...
During the following weeks an image came into my head and just
when i had started to paint ' the treehouse',
came up with the theme of this week
so here is my treehouse
have a lovely weekend!

that's what i do now
i'm surrounded by them, from my kitchen window
to the kitchen garden
i store them, file them, memorize them
a stock for grey and dark days still faraway
a supply in my head that i can call back to life with paint
these are the days of colours
the enchanting days
swimming and diving into color
