Pink in July (ink paintings)

I guess the pink tones have creeped into the recent paintings because the whole world has been so fluffy recently. This week has been weirdly productive though! And it is caused by one thing only – the cool air arrived from Norway and it is giving us a week long break from the cute century record breaking heat wave. Trying to get as much painting time in before the next heat wave starts. I can’t believe that you southerners have to deal with this every year! I have no idea how you manage.

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!

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.

The smoldering raven

Was experimenting with colors a little bit, so todays raven came out orange-red. I uploaded them into the shop also. https://www.etsy.com/shop/5erg.

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.
