Message from the past

 Click image to enlarge!

Little Ingrid is my grandmother, born 1904. 

And this above,is her early christmas greatings. 
Last time I met her I asked her to recieve her Postcard files. I had already copied her albums. And she gave it to me. Soon after that she passed away. 
Now it is such a nice memory of her. 
The photo of her probably from 1920. 

Another promt this week is Snowflake for TIOT, so I created a snowfall. Canvas 40x40 cm and stickers.

Alien butterfly world!
Longing for sommer?? Here is one for you. 
Painted on A4 paper using Tempera, sawdust and stickers. 


Not sure if I am done with this or if it is a "work in progress", 
What I was thinking about from the start was "Milky seas, also called mareel"
But I kind of like how this turned out. So, continue or make another is the big question??
