Thank you and a bit of Sea, Sun and Sand!

My dear Friends, first of all I wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who participated in my little competition and told the world about my fairies! The winners and the lucky owners of the new sets of fairy cards will be announced on Monday 13th August, so you still have time to join the fun if you haven't done it yet!!!

I have been really busy this week catching up with all the work after spending a month in Ukraine. Therefore, I have something to show!!! A very talented lady Kate asked me to create a couple of pictures for her kids' bedroom. She has an older girl and a little boy and she wanted the pictures to be drawn in maritime theme to match the interior. The pictures had to be fresh and sunny and very positive.

I hope I managed to catch the spirit:

I wanted each child to have their own picture, and I wanted each picture to stand well on their own as well as work together as a set. Also, although the children are on different pictures I tried to make sure that everyone could see - the children are together and they love each other! So I drew the girl rushing through the waves to her brother and the little boy meeting her excitedly on the shore.

Here are the drawings a bit closer:

  3. Hi, Elina! I found your blog and I must say it's wonderful. I enjoy your art and your other picture book related posts. I read that you were in Ukraine recently, and I'm sorry to hear that your parents were ill. I was there two months ago for almost a week for work. I didn't get to go out much but that's life. I look forward to visiting your page again. Cheers!

  10. Hi Elina, I'm contacting you because I fell in love withe the painting of the girl on the ship. In 3 weeks my daughter will be born and in The Netherlands it's a habit to send all of you friends en family a card to announce the birth with name and details. I'd love to use the image of the girl on the birth announcement. I'm wandering how you feel about that and if you have it in high resolution (maybe scanned?).. Hope to hear from you. Thanks, Sanne_op_reis@hotmail.com
