The sun is hiding since 22 days. It feel even longer and the longing for soaking up some sunbeams grows with every day a little more. But today for a short moment she showed up to ensure us that she's still there.

*peachy flowers

After I have told you that I am playing around with watercolors a lot lately, I wanted to show you some of the results. I painted a lot of peachy flowers and created new patterns for my spoonflower shop. I really like how they turned out and I am learning so much while making my experiments.

*linden garden | part 3

The last part of our walk in the misty linden garden. Today in the morning I somehow could smell the snow, it's not here yet, but it feels near. Like most days I am deeply occupied with painting with my watercolors. The hours go by so extremely quickly then! The days are rushing past me, but I feel like being in a save bubble floating around comfortably and peaceably.

*linden garden | part 2

Every time I visit that place I have to take a picture of this weird blue circus-like cage and every time I wonder how it looks in winter when it's snowing. So far I did not manage to be there in winter time, but maybe this time!

*linden garden | part 1

Every now and then we visit the garden of a private castle with its beautiful big old linden trees and stone statues in between. This time it was very misty again and this gave the whole place even a more special atmosphere. It was like wandering about in a dream and I just waited the trees to tell their stories to me.

*misty mourning | part 2

The storms are still going on. We decided to make a forest walk despite of the heavy winds and the deeper we got into the woods, the better and the more sheltered I felt. My whole being needed that so much today.
Which are the places you visit that make you instantly feel better? Do you have your secret spots that you regularly seek to feel balanced? A pretty place next to a lake or the sea or a lovely old Café?

*mushroom studies

The mushroom theme is not letting me go :)
So I made some watercolor studies of different forest fungi.
It was nice working with many layers of color to create some depth and to learn about how the colors react together in the end.

*misty mourning | part 1

The world is full of spiders.
In this misty times it gets even more obvious as their diligent constructed spiderwebs become all visible and I never get tired of admiring them.

We have such heavy storms right now, the wind was howling all night and the branches of the firs were constantly clacking against the roof of our home. Dreams of broken off trees were haunting me.
And the storm goes on.

*mushroom & animals

Recently I started an illustration series with mushrooms and animals that I wanted to show you, but I am not sure if I will continue so soon as I am working on something different again right now. :)

*holding on to the last leaf

Of days full of red, green and grey tones.

I take a lot photos of flock of birds, but unfortunately those pictures are often missing when I collect my developed film from the shop, same happens with cloud pictures. Obviously the machines or employees sort them out, because obviously they look like underexposed pictures or something like that which really often bugs me. I don't have a good negative scanner, maybe someday I will invest in one to be able to scan all those lost sky pictures.

*frosty mornings

The mist rises from the empty fields and your breathing air becomes visible, all the green tones are coated with a shiny white layer and your cold fingers make you feel alert to the core. 
A season full of contrasts – inside and outside.

*some things

Some things never change. Like for example, me enjoying climbing trees. How about you? What did you used do a lot in your childhood that you still enjoy today?
