Rainfrogs: pandemic alternatives to hugs and greetings

Some greetings can remain the same, anything involving putting hands up is timeless and universal, perfect for any occasion.

There is a range of new age hugs developed over the 10 months. Here is a formal type of alternative hug for congratulating people you know.
Here we can see an example of a more friendly alternative hug, as you can see, the arms are almost touching, but gracefully miss.
A beginner level alternative pandemic hug, no dance skills required. The key is to do a regular hug but reversed. This is also the perfect position to share chip updates after your vaccine.
Here we can see a pretty intimate gesture. As you can see it involves putting a hand on another creatures face, so this is more of a nostalgic moment, a remainder from the time you could do that. If you do this the recipient will be taken back to a simpler time and will be able to relax for a minute.

Abstract raven paintings (Ink art)

My eye started twitching from joy, I saw a jackdaw looking for food and it found a bug, picked it up and went to a nearby puddle to wash it before eating. What a neat little dinosaur.

Had some fun too,  painting smoky ravens is always a great feeling. Splash splash! I added four new artworks on paper.

Get some ink and get to painting!

Early morning (landscape painting)

Acrylic painting on canvas, about 12 x 12 inches (30 x 30 cm).

Early morning Southern Estonian landscape. I was trying to think of a place that I’d love to walk into in the morning and remember all of the elements that give out a sense of  calm.

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.
