  4. They really look like having a wonderful day - a beautiful scene you have painted in your very special way. But what is with the bird sitting on the tree?? Is it happy as well? And the cat looks a little bit like the one in "Alice in wonderland" I mean the way I imgagine that cat.

    Im looking forward for more fantasie scenes of you.

  19. I can see you had such great fun when you fantasised and painted this. One could sit with a little child and look at the picture and between you come up with a story about what they are all doing and thinking. The green ZigZag bird in the tree looks as if he wants to join in. This is so colourful and enjoyable, the blue cloud and the imaginative flowers. I do love the way you have painted the grass and the pinks in the sky. I've enjoyed every moment of looking at this.
