Party Time

The last of 12 main pictures (just right for carnival, isn’t it?).  Actually it’s  no. 11. The real last picture  is  the one with sleeping babies, but this scene was ready long ago. I have spent most of this month drawing babies. I have no patience to count them all, but there must be about 80 pink babies in the book. More will come  (book cover, title page, and perhaps additional pages for coloring)  but I don’t want to think about it now.  My plan for tomorrow is to go out and dig the garden. I love this job, but the number of babies is overhelming.

Tea Time

Three sisters and Grandma, illustration no. 4. I really should finish it earlier, but it was so sunny and warm this weekend…  summer is back with a short visit. This special October weather is called “babie lato” here, it means: old wife’s summer. I have no idea why. I wonder if it has a special name in other languages, too. Up from Friday we are doing things like gardening,  painting windows and riding a bike – everybody’s out all day. My Basia is useless, she’s already wearing her winter coat and now she would rather die then trot.
