Sultan Daughter

This legend is about a Christian knight who was rescued from the slavery by his true love; they stayed together forever, never mind the knight’s wife waiting in the castle… and they got blessing from the pope. Sounds like a scenario for early Hollywood movie, doesn’t it? I can hardly belive this story comes from Middle Ages.

Ickendorf

Each next legend in Astrid’s set is more crazy then the previous one, I think. This one is about an underwater town, to be seen just once a year and for a short while.

Carrot Story

Another German legend illustrated for Astrid, and this one is quite funny…

Half completed! There will be a new book soon, Yule Spy by Roger Easton. And yes, the boy is going to get the green bike for Christmas – I think I can tell so much. How he gets it, this is in the book.

Facebook art challenge, continued. “Cover”! I searched my photos and I could see I can paint one of two things: rural landscape covered with snow, or rural landscape covered with dry leaves. Everything’s rural about the place I live in. I have chosen leaves. it’s cold day, even without painting snow.
