Good bye, Summer! We miss you already!
Good bye, Summer! We miss you already!

I think the time has come to say goodbye to the sun, to the beach, to the breeze and to summer in general. We all know it happens every year but it’s still always a disappointment when it does.

Good Bye, Summer! Size: 40 x 30 x 2cm; Oil on canvas

It feels like not long ago when we were on the beach by the waves of the sea on our summer holiday without a care in the worldand now here we are – digging out our umbrellas again!
Summer was so much fun!

Good Bye, Summer! Good Bye, Summer! Good Bye, Summer!

 Good Bye, Summer!

 

My two little kids, Krisi and Bobi, hate saying goodbye to summer and it is hard for them to welcome autumn. As the evenings get shorter we think of all the things we are going to miss about this summer – icecream, playgrounds, beaches, waves, sand, the sea…and the freedom that summer brings. So good bye, Summer! We miss you already!

Say “Hi” to the cows!
Say “Hi” to the cows!
Farm animals like cows, sheep and horses are cute, charming, colorful, funny and fluffy! They have a way of bringing out the best in us.
Introducing your children to farm animals at an early age will result in a greater understanding of responsibility and compassion. I hope that through my art I instill a love for nature in the kids. This way they could become keepers of its beauty and value for years and generations to come. Nature art for children generates a love of nature, a love of learning and creativity. Art develops the willingness to explore the unseen in real life. It awakens the senses for beauty; opens the hearts and minds and fuels the imagination. This is what childhood should be about: having fun outdoors, going on adventures, exploring nature!

Do you spend enough time with your child?
Do you spend enough time with your child?
If you Google around the Internet with such search phrase as “spending time with your child,” you will find hundreds of opinions and advices given by experts telling you how important parent-child play and spending time together is for both parties.

As the years go by and children grow up we start to feel more and more guilty about the amount of time that we spend or don’t spend with our kids.
Today’s parents are busier than ever. Both parents – the mother and the father work outside of the home. And not just them – kids are being occupied with activities like sports, language classes, dance classes, music lessons…and others.

What is that?! A cankerworm!
What is that?! A cankerworm!

Cankerworm

Sometimes you come upon something so cool and amazing that you know it is something that will stay with you for a long time either in your home or in your imagination. A little creature called cankerworm has climbed all the way up to the 17th floor to say “Hi”. Krisi and Bobi were terrified, shocked and at the same time intrigued to find who was that.

-Bobiiiiii! Looook, “something”! What is it?!
-Don’t know, Krisi, but I am scared…haven’t seen such a thing never. I think it looks like the one with the shell.
– No, Bobi. That was a snail, remember – the snail after the rain. I think this one is came from the TV. It was in the TV and then jumped out of it because the TV is too small and there is no space for it.
– Oh, yes! You are right. Let’s call mom and tell her that this creature is alive and can jump around and creep and scramble. It may even enter some of her paintings! Let’s warn her!

And – yes! The little thing has jumpred into mom’s painting – it saw an apple! And it doesn’t look so scary now. In fact it is sweet, cute and is smiling at us 🙂

Magic wands!
Magic wands!

Kids think about magic most of the time. Toddlers are thought to live in a world of their own, a world in which fantasy and reality are undifferentiated. In their mind trees can talk, pigs dance salsa, the favourite train flies, cucumbers, carots and tomatos are a musical band, magicians come by night and dreams come true. Magical object can be seen and found everywhere.

Today Bobi came upon wind driven whirligigs and though they were “magic wand”:

-Look, Krisi, a magic wand! Its wings are spinning and also looks like a flower! They are so many! Like 15? Can they fly?
-Bobi, that is not a magic wand! It is called a whirligig and is so fun! The whirligigs are wind driven! You can take it and run around with it and watch as the whirligig  spins wildly with wind velocity! Or – just put it outside in the garden and watch its wings dance in the sweet little breeze! Like the weathercocks in mummy’s painting!
