Dedicated to my favorite Tree that was killed by the last tornado we had about a month ago. It was a very old oak Tree with huge roots. We would sit under it and have lunch on nice days. It was blown out of ground completely and lay like a huge whale tossed onto the shore...We miss you Tree!

It is very hard to write about this...
I will use this blog post to say good buy to my 3 unborn babies. Two of them I have lost this year, one very recently. I have not been blogging well this year, and I have not been painting well this year. I have not been doing many things this year.
I will never see them smile, and I will never be able to hold them. I will not know what color their eyes were. I will not know if they were going to be good at math, or drawing, or dancing....I will not get to watch their first steps, and I will not be able to watch my older kids become big brother and sister. But this is life, and it keeps going. I am blessed to have 2 children, who could have easily not be here as the rest of them. Sining a lulluby to the little ones, I know that they are being taken care of. However for me pictures always spoke better than words. The one above was painted today.

Another animation by Elizaveta Skvortsova. The movie is without subtitles, so I will briefly tell the story here. The main hero (black with the white face) is death. Once there was a very cruel king, who lost the war. When he was coming back he noticed a couple that was kissing and seemed very happy. The king got mad. He thought that since his fortune was bad everyone should be in sorrow. He took the girl and threw her into death's hands. But the girl was very much alive. She asked death to let her go for one night, to see her beloved. Death agreed, and fell asleep. A long time passed until she woke up and went to find the girl. But the girl kept saying "I can't go yet, my beloved is asleep, I can't wake him up". And death waited, and waited...

It's horribly grey and rainy here these days. The kids get to be extremely annoying, and I get to be very irritable if we stay all day inside. Out of boredom and desiring to recapture some of the old ideas I go digging in one of the "boxes" filled with my old works, half finished and waiting for a day like this. This creature has been waiting to come out into the world for some years now. 8? 9?10? She got a facial lift and a bit of a makeover, and I am honored to present to you this old friend of mine.
