drawing challenge "CALM"

This weeks drawing challenge is tributed to the theme "CALM"
from our lovely host Veronica.




While I'm sitting here thick fluffy snow flakes fall from the sky
and this feels for me calming. 



The world gets a little more quiet  and calm with snow and it reflects
more light on a grey winter day which is especially welcome
after all this damn grey nasty rainy days!



But this wasn't what I initially wanted to contribute to the theme.
I guess we all suffer of to much distraction from outside, not only
bad political news, but also all this plings, tweets and zirps all
day long around us.



Sometimes it really drives my crazy and still I feel addicted and
I know I have to reduce it for not losing my conection to
my true inner self - I hardly can remember who that was.
Therefore bought a new sketchbook (and here the same: do I
need another sketchbook? Certainly not!) and a small watercolor
box and  started to draw/paint this little birds to keep my mind
focused on something beautiful and nature related and hopefully
calm my distracted mind and get more focuse again.





So keep calm and draw on and don't forget to Veronicas' site and
find all the other beautiful contributions.


Wish you a nice sunday

Haben dir gestern ein bisschen die Ohren geklingelt? Wir haben bei unserem Minibloggertreffen beim Kunstkisten bauen an dich gedacht bzw. von dir gesprochen. Du hast einfach in unserem kreis gefehlt....
Herzlichst

when i see snow, something in me calms, like your lovely photos.

your birds are all quite charming. I enjoy seeing them. I hope to practice making birds too.

yes, there is so much around us to distract....

A very calm scene from your studio window has allowed you to find inner peace and create these well painted birds! Well done! Thank you for sharing!

Ja, that kind of tweets are truly sweet, dear Barbara!
Beautiful painted! So vivid. I can hear them.
The snow today was very calming and fits so well to our dc, right?

Time for a trip to Italy via Galerie der Gegenwart on a Friday in December?
Love
Ariane. Rose

your 'winter' garden!! oh my gosh look at that snow effect... snow calms me right down too, al that white, all of a sudden, like someone just paints all the sorrow out!...

your bird collection is discernibly growing! i get this feeling there's no stopping you on the tiny pearls of beauty we now have to miss for a while. you make 'em pop off the page, so real are they... n♥

Liebe Barbara,
manchmal ist ja einfach schön, den Flocken zuzusehen, wie sie tänzeln und landen und sich dann eine Stille über die Landschaft legt.
Deine Vögel gefallen mir gut ... bin gespannt, wer noch in deinem Skizzenbuch landet
Herzliche Grüße
Sabine
