Darkness Came To Eat Me...

A Fish

A Storm

Rosette managed to escape from the flock of Butterflies only
to be caught in a storm
and losing direction again.
"Where is the Polar Star when you need it?"

A Cutie

Lately I have been listening to David Sylvian a lot. It seems I can't get enough of songs, poems, images, quotes, metaphors referring to water, sea, rain, rivers, tears...seabed, seabirds, sailors!!!, shipwreck, sails,...
...falling through the sea, down, down into the flames...
Can you, lovely people, relate to this?

Check this beautiful song by Sylvian called Waterfront:

On the waterfront the rain
Is pouring in my heart
Here the memories come in waves
Raking in the lost and found of years

Oh, the sadness, oh the beauty!

Just Living Is Not Enough !

Sea Birds and Butterflies Series

"Just living is not enough,"
said the butterfly,
"one must have sunshine, freedom
and a little flower."
Hans Christian Andersen

Our adorable Rosette was lured into the colourful Land of the Butterfly and got lost.
Let's hope she will find her way home before darkness falls...

Watercolours plus some digital help by Mr.X in Photoshop (which I'm slowly learning myself).

"I only ask to be free.
The Butterflies are free."
Charles Dickens

Sea Birds and Butterflies Series

Oh...The Sea, The Sea...
I am very pleased with this two little paintings, Miss R.B. agrees...
What do you think? Anybody out there?
The title comes from V. Woolf's book To the Lighthouse, I think there will be more paintings in these series (love this word, sounds so professional :))) coming soon.

Sleep Tight...

Good night, sleep tight,
Wake up bright
In the morning light
To do what's right
With all your might.

Good night, sleep tight,
Don’t let the bedbugs bite.
And if they do
Then take your shoe
A nd knock ‘em ‘til
They’re black and blue!
