A change in perspective

Some mornings you wake up and it all feels like an uphill battle....Doesn't it? And sometimes it feels like an insurmountable wall....

And then you get some lovely mail from Guylaine from Montreal, with some beautiful little ones...



And you get some warm and sweet comments on your blog, and then you find out that Katharine of Woollywotnots has just featured your work on her blog along with some other lovely artists and blogging friends!



Then you feel surrounded by something warm and soft and gentle....



And suddenly life seems like a manageable, exciting landscape, full of colourful goodies!


Hmm, what changes your perspective on a grey day?

I really liked the story unfolding! :-) The lady is very cute and I like her photographed on the steps. They are very steep for her! Lovely to hear about your special surprise through the post. :-) I love the pom poms. They look very much like the colours in your work. Is this the secret to super art... lovely colourful pompoms for inspiration! :-) I loved the photo of the pompoms all scattered about with the tree. You're very funny Annamaria with the picture of the lady snuggling in pompoms and feeling all warm! Such a cute post! :-)

Good to be back into reading blogs agin - and yours. Fireflies have been lighting up my dusks - just fantastic, meadows seem more alive with little orbs of magic!

i feel like that little woman trying to climb those steps more often than not.

This is just so beautiful, Annamaria... this is exactly what it's like, isn't it? I've been facing blank walls a bit myself lately... I've taken a leaf out of your book and started doing sketches in a little sketch book :)
Congratulations on your features/mentions on other blogs - your work is so divine it does deserve it :)
I love your little girl and tree - are they on wood? I've just started experimenting with drawing on my balsa wood too! Very poor example on my Flickr.
Take good care. Love, Kylie x

Great story, and don't we all feel like this sometimes. Doing something nice like baking or sewing or gardening is a good deterent to a gloomy grey day - productivity works for me!
