desperately hoping it won't be long 'til we see the first signs of spring here up north. it's the end of march and we still have a lot of snow. how many more weeks before spotting the first coltsfoot? Stephanie is hosting the drawing challenge of the week: blossom and i bought myself a sketchbook! loving it!
Veckans utmaning blommar hos Stephanie. Här är fortfarande hopplöst snöigt men det är redan slutet på mars så det ska inte dröja länge innan det svänger och vi får börja spana efter årets första tussilago! ååååh. jag längtar efter att få dricka årets första kaffekopp ute på terassen.

sweet fru mju,
replying on your query about the illustrated books... they are 'fables de la fontaine' stories, written once upon a time by frenchman jean de la fontaine. through the years many editions of these highly moral fables were printed, the most popular ones into fairy books. illustrations vary. these i found, came truely cheap, and i will most certainly cut them up, in time.

Jag längtar också. Och faller för dina vårblommor. Den andra bilden är min favorit, jag känner för att lyfta pennan och rita den sista delen av knoppen. Sugen på att rita i blyerts igen. En krispig men ändå mjuk spets mot vitt ritpapper. Kanske jag lyckas plocka fram det till nästa lördag. I sån frid som i ditt fönster.
