There is a very interesting project on the horizon and truly hope it works out. I might be illustrating a book of lullabies for a Russian poet/singer. I am really enjoying the illustrations and the music that I work with. This is my first take/sketch on a song, will be listing the original on Etsy.

Another year, a bigger number

This year I am no longer fretting about the 3 in the beginning of the number. 31--sounds good.
I got lots of presents, a wonderful handmade card from Andrei, a sculpted dog from Anna and some lovely books from Arkadi (Fra Angelico's art book was my favorite, as well as a leather bound sketchbook). My Mom was visiting as well and it was very nice to see her on my Birthday, does not happen very often now. We are also getting ready for Easter and I am having a great time making pysanki , highly recommend to anyone who has not tried! (here is a link to a simple kit)

We just watched the March of the Pinguins and the Winged Migration, I guess this piece was inspired by them.

My favorite flowers

I got myself some flowers yesterday, I thought I knew what they were called, but apparently I don't since google search shows something very different when I type in the name. These are my favorite flowers. I really like how they bend down,sort of like swan necks:) The cats liked them too. It seems like they do not only look good, but also taste good. Alas, the cats will have to be content with their cat food.
