Owls and owl

What else do owls do? perhaps, they like to catch moth in the early evenings and at night - dance some cancan.

Owls like ballet too

"Dance of the little swans" as interpreted by 3 white owls.  I just looked it up in wikipedia and there suppose to be 4 swans, oops :)

The Owl and the Pussycat

At least one owl liked to spend its' time with the cat, and it played guitar (together owl and cat could navigate a pea green boat, eat honey and they knew that money could be used to purchase a ring from a pig, oy) "the owl and the pussycat" by e.lear


Yes, there are a lot (and I mean A LOT) of drawings, paintings, prints of owls out there.  Owls are expressive, easy to draw and cute, cute, cute. They have an image of nocturnal bird who is wise and thoughtful. They eat mice, but so what? Mice are rodents. But sometimes owls are friends with some exceptional, intelligent and courteous mice.

if you look carefully it says "sweden and norway" and "valkyrie's song" on top of the page, it was a total accident or not :)

Some watercolor on the pages of an old physics book and some ink drawings. I tried to put the least thought into these :) Just moved my hands and saw what came out.

the next one was based on one of Nina's drawings. I wonder - does it have something to do with plastic surgery?

playing with watercolors some more: fox

and finally, three drawings about my personal phobia - insectophobia. I will post them also on the phobia s blog http://aphobiaaday.blogspot.com/  I would really like to illustrate more phobias - there some
fascinating ones.

the next image is tentatively called "the mysterious disappearance of watermelon #1" (i am sure all my articles are off but this is the best i can do right now)

V. is 17 years old. This was V's first new coat. All the previous ones she got from her older sisters. On the first evening of wearing it V. ripped her new coat while climbing over the fence in Petrov's Park. Kazan, Russia 1959

winter, purple coats, hats, book

Can one dress like this in Alaska?
Cold winter of 1932. Reconstruction based on the description of long lost photograph of Marina Tsvetaeva and her son Mur during their visit to Musée d'Ethnographie du Trocadéro in Paris.
Cold winter of 1932. Drawing on pages of the "Around the world" geographical series, for third and forth grades by Stella W. Carroll and Harriet L. Jerome. This chapter is entitled "Alaska".
For some reason there is a picture of the stature of William Tell right before the "Alaska" chapter, I suspect it is related to Switzerland chapter (3 chapters later) ;)
