Mathilda’s Dwarf House is ready

The house has got four inhabitants: Dwarf Mom, Dwarf Dad and two kids. My family complains I’ve cut it out too carelessly and the carton I have glued to the floor to make it stiffer is absolutely disgusting, but they are all old plane-model makers and in my opinion they have too high expectations (and where have they all been, when I was working? It’s easy to complain later!)

Family Tree

Mathilda’s paper house has to wait a bit, it was high time to finish the Grandma project and there was something to do about Patsy’s Christmas trees, too.  Now the last Grandma picture is ready. I love to start new projects, but to have it all finished  is also nice!

200!

WordPress informed me kindly I’ve published 200 posts so far. Good heavens, I must have done 200 pictures since I’ve started – what a huge  pile of paper! Greetings to all my followers, those wonderful patient people, who sacrifice a bit of their time to watch the pictures and sometimes to  comment them, too. Thank you. No matter if we talk about cooking or painting watercolors,  it’s always very important to have some feedback – without it, how could one improve his/hers skills? Even this simple thing, the number of “likes”, is valuable indicator for me. It really helps, and I’m grateful to you all!

And for anniversary, I’ll publish something untypical… The whole thing has been just  glued together (there’s also a back wall, not to be seen here) and now it’s getting dry. Tomorrow I will try to make a photo! Dwarf House Flat

Wedding Day

The eldest of three sisters’s getting married; as you see, we are really coming to the end (the story is about childhood…). There will be one more picture, with a family tree. This will be difficult!

Three Big Girls

Three sisters and Grandma again;  now girls are big. The eldest is a scientist, the youngest is studying to be a nurse, middle one is enthomologist, and Granny is proud of them all. I’m getting close to the end of this project. And woodpecker is back! We haven’t seen him for a couple of days, but today he has come twice, in the morning and before sunset.  “Before sunset” sadly means 3 p.m. now. Anyway it’s good to know he’s OK. He adds a hint of color to the  world outside.

Barbecue

Grandma story; the whole family together, in the garden. Two uncles at the table are important here, they are mentioned in the text. I’ve even got reference photos!Barbecue

The Duel

House of Chocolate

I’ve colored only half of one knight so far, but I’ve also finished old drawing today. It was started in September during our holiday trip. High time to finish it, before it gets eaten by mouses… well, I have seen no mouse on my desk yet, but there’s a lot of noise just above the ceiling. Mouses are moving to the attic before winter. I don’t blame them, I would do  the same, if other option was field under snow.  And talking about wild life; we have our woodpecker now. He’s been visiting us and tormenting the plumtree quite regularly this week. A handsome fat guy colored white, black and red, just like from a book.

White Knight

Here’s the other one.  Now I need to make a few strategic decisions about coloring both guys.
