Back to normal


I´ve been doing a huge project for a couple of weeks (hence no updates here), which included collecting images, drawing, photographing, scanning, printing, doing some research and putting it all together into a book, and then giving it away. It was fun, but now that it´s all done my fingers are itching for some basic drawing, drawing for it´s own sake, drawing for the heck of it, drawing because it´s fun, drawing for no good reason at all. Turned to the most boring and basic stuff at home for some inspiration, and completely lost track of time while drawing a simple dish brush. Ah, good old drawing habit. It´s good to have you back.

Wonderful drawing Nina! I know just what you mean about not wanting to make art into work but rather to just relax and enjoy drawing. Congratulations on the sale. I can see why they loved the pictures!

Great subject -- our every day objects, just lying or hanging there!

Hello from Italy, Nina!

I haven't been reading many Blogs lately, but I'm a wee bit under the weather and have been 'told' to take it easy. Might be my one chance for catching up with my Friends...

Nina, this drawing of your kitchen brush is wonderful! I love the clean (no pun intended!), simple lines and the colour.

Congratulations on finishing your project before the Holidays! Makes it more relaxing all around.

Buon Natale dal'Italia e Tanti Auguri per l'Anno Nuovo!

I love this - how come everyday stuff can look so good when drawn/painted??
