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.
One more Christmas card, for Barbara, my old customer. She’s a harpist (real one! in philharmonic orchestra!) so music motif is obligatory. Tea isn’t, but I’ve used it again. There’s always some tea at hand. I suppose I’m already tea addicted. I’ve used some markers for smaller details, too (lyre!). They are too bright to mix well with watercolor in any serious painting, but in a Christmas card no color is too bright, ever.
