All that is missing is a good book. We went camping this summer and I made a quick sketch of my daughter swinging happily in the hammock. It turned into this beautiful drawing. I spent a lot of time in the hammock myself, happily reading a book. A few days living in a forest is good for the soul.
Charlotte danced through the forest, her cape twirling out behind her. This is an illustration I did for a children’s story I wrote. She is a tree that comes a live. I think I started the story with the image of a tree spirit dancing through the forest with leaves and branches spinning off behind her. She is a birch tree, and her cape is made of birch bark. I love the inspiration that comes from sitting in the forest and hearing the leaves twirling and falling all around me.
