I know, I am repeating myself,
but I am so in love with the winter color palette,
all the pretty grey shades and the naked trees
unfold the prettiest green and red tones
and they are looking a little differently every day!

They say it will have minus degrees
throughout the coming weeks,
at the moment the ground in front of our home
turned into a sheet of ice.
Nice to look at, but tricky to walk!

Have a good start into the new week!


*playing with ink

Since the weather is not that great recently
I decided to scan and show you some of my random ink drawings
that I do without sketching out with a pencil before.

Fresh snow – soap bubbles – icicles –
calm forests – withered flowers dancing in the wind –
meltwater – weird foam formations – rabbit tracks



February is here already!

White tulips inside,
snow outside, the third day.

Postcards of my last illustrations.
Love how they turned out!

Journaling a lot, testing out different pens.

And enjoying organic "Kipferl",
a typical Austrian sort of croissant.

Have a lovely day!

*winter tones

I love how the first picture turned out –
it was a very stormy day,
the wind blew the dry snow around like sand in a desert
and branches full of thorns stuck bizarrely out of the white.
The sky had such beautiful grey tones –
what a great color palette winter has!


*One year

{Music: Les Sablons – Oskar Schuster}

Last year I made one picture per day out of our kitchen window
to create this kind of weather diary.


*here comes the sun

Finally the sun came out after weeks of grey skies
and with the sun came some sort of spring fatigue.
At this time of the year I am longing for fresh herbs from the garden,
but still have to be patient about that,
so I am adding fresh sprouts to my meals every day.

We painted our little storage room and Ronald built a wooden rack for it.
I love the smell of the freshly cut wooden boards!

We also had some renovation work in the kitchen and stairwell.
Recently we had a lot of issues with leaking appliances and electrical issues too.
There is always something to improve or work on,
but it's a really good feeling when something is repaired again, 
especially if you priorly have been improvising for a long time. :)
