‘You’re taking the bike?? In this weather? Are you nuts????’ ‘ No, I’m Dutch’
It’s raining and it so gray outside here in Leyden, The Netherlands. Well, I guess that’s what our little country is famous for: rain. Still, I am really looking forward to springtime. The smell of new flowers, the feeling of nature waking up. Of us waking up actually! Here is to that bubbling spring feelings!
First drawing of the day. In fact I was only warming up. I decided to share these pages with you, just as they are, to show you how a drawing sometimes starts.
I wrote a little about the rain:
tic tic, toc toc, tac tac
rain, rain, rain on my roof
I am sitting here and listen to the song of the drops
hoping the gutters don’t leak, the rooftiles are still in place
and I remember that I forgot to let the house get painted on the outside
a moment to stay in bed a little longer
but I am not going to do that, because I also love an early start of the day
hey, there is an enormous bird sitting next to my bed
some sort of ‘angel in disguise’?
