Quote print in Etsy shop now!

Finally available in my Etsy shop: my very first handmade Quote illustration! An inspirational quote from the 2015 Disney movie Cinderella inspired me to create this elegant, colourful ink drawing.

Like most of us, I guess I have been waiting for spring to arrive, after a winter that somehow seemed to last a little longer than usually. With a world in tumult & my faith in humanity tested more than once, these simply words of encouragement have helped me to keep my eyes on the horizon & to realize that real change often starts close home. It starts with me, with my own hopes, believe, resilience & with my own courage to look at what it truly means to be kind and courageous in daily life. And even though I haven’t even come close to perfecting the art of kindness nor courage, I guess I have at least learned to aspire both as often as possible.

So, if you need a little encouragement, some positivity or simply want to purchase a beautiful piece of art, please feel free to hop over to my Etsy shop & have a look at this beautiful print. It is a print of one of my original handmade illustrations, printed on Satimat natural 150 gr paper. Lovely to frame or stick on your wall with colourful some washi tape.

Love for now & see you in my Etsy shop!

Wide-eyed wandering, Week 5 to week 8

SONY DSC

– A sky drenched with impermanence –

It’s been a while. A very long while, I should say. After a couple of weeks away from the computer & few weeks of holiday for my camera and pencils, my silly neck & shoulder are still bothering me, like they have done for months now. So, I should still be careful & stay away from this computer screen as much as possible. But throughout the last couple of weeks, I at least did manage to make a few weekly photos, which I would love to share with you here today. Furthermore, you’ll have to bear with me a little longer, until my shoulder gets better & I can give this blog the full attention it deserves.

But there is good news too. During my little hiatus, I finally did make time to order some new photo prints to add to my Etsy shop. And I also dug up an elegant, line drawing I made last summer & which I’m really proud of. I brought it to my local printer & it will be available for purchase in my Etsy shop real soon. So, that is something to look forward to! More on all this soon. I’ll leave you with these pictures for now & hope to be back here in not too long…

Love, Naomi
