Rainfrogs, enjoying the spring of 2021

Eurovision is back on! May!

Enjoying the very early spring, it’s a bit hard to focus and look at things since it’s too bright from ice and new Sun. April! https://www.etsy.com/listing/1028128225
The earliest spring of all early springs – the first roadtrip gas station break, a handful of willow branches with fluffy catkins (willow chicklets!) and the upcoming cold from looking at some icy lake beauty for too long. The first days of March!

Cool strawberries

The rainfrog enjoying a nice new job it got in May, it’s really interesting and cool to pick strawberries through the winter, because they grow frozen so they’re like cute natural popsicles . So you can enjoy a nice ice cold treat in a warm home you definitely have on that year long strawberry season salary.

Cows of Eastern Europe (Drawings)

I thought I might have some fun drawing cows and here they are. I paint them with ink and onto canvas. All of them are added to the shop and can be shipped worldwide.

Here is a diamond cow, she is really a hardcore cow with a crystal clear goal to eat green grass all day and be suspicious about vans.

Here is the strawberry city cow, she is really extremely pumped because she is high on pesticides all day. strawberry cow round funny cow drawing painting art

Here is the cow enjoying a nice walk in the botanical garden in the fish pond.  She hasn’t been out for a while so not sure of the etiquette entirely, so to blend in she eats the roses and pees on a bee to establish dominance, builds a house underwater like a beaver and lets her kids stare at the ducklings until the ducks get angry and grow back into dinosaurs and start hunting cows for revenge.  #Blessedcow drawing in a monet style pond watercolor painting funny cow art

Here is the cow in the middle of a trust fall, she has a good cow support so she will be fine,  but there is one cow stuck in the bog so a bit problematic and another one is out of the equation because she is too nervous to watch this. Cows don’t have enemies among the group.

The rainfrog chronicles cartoon drawings

These are ink illustrations on paper and are available here.

“The rainfrog is going to steal a cow instead” is inspired by a story I heard about the tribes in isolated forests where the process of proving yourself includes showing others that you can kill someone from the other tribe. At some point the tribe elders realized a single killing ends up being a long line of separate inter-village bloody vendettas which will never end and that isn’t useful for anyone. After that they’ve come to conclusion they will secretly start stealing cows from one another instead of killing one another. Chivalry is not dead. So if someone pisses you off, it’s a possibility that you can solve it by stealing a cow, but you have to do it in a really skillful and an impressive way.

“The spider saga” – the rainfrog is truly considering what Mr.Tolkien has written into his diary: “True courage is about knowing not when to take a life, but when to spare one.” And then Mandela had gone and said: “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” After that you have to consider the words of Winston Churchill “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” And at the end of the spider sagas, you can reflect on the thoughts of Oscar Wilde: “It’s an odd thing, but anyone who disappears, is said to be seen in San Francisco.”

“First flower of the spring” – for a Nordic rainfrog, the spring is extremely important, because it’s rebirth for most of the nature and everyone has to relearn some of the daily things. You’ve forgotten completely how the ground looks and that there are colours in the nature, and daylight, you crash your car a couple of times because you have forgotten the Sun, you crash your bike a couple of times because you have forgotten the physics, you start remembering feelings. Sometimes this is all delayed, so you’re a bit angry at the weather, curse you, weather!

But at the end, every rainfrog gets a kick out of the first yellow blossom they see and it makes them think of the wonderful blooming summer ahead.
