Hello friends,


this is to let you know that I have finally opened an etsy-shop. It's something I wanted to do for quite some time. It's not just for drawings - I also love making stuff.

Please come by for a visit and cookies - and maybe you'll see something you like!

The shop can be found here:


www.etsy.com/shop/madebynadin?…


First up: Three beautiful cards with photographs by my husband empire-of-raindrops.

See you there, and have a beautiful day!

I have proudly been making a mess with pencil and paper as long as I can remember.
At the age of 7 I decided to draw portraits of my stuffed animals and over the following years aquired the basics through observation, practice and the occasional art-course-ran-by-some-artist my parents sent me to. Mainly because of these courses and regular clashes with my art teachers it took years until I started drawing because it was part of me and not because other thought I should.
So generally speaking I am a mainly self-taught traditional artist who draws because it's part of me. Like, if I would stop eating chocolate - that would be weird... :)




Where I am at the moment says nothing about where I can or cannot go.


Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore.
Dream.
Discover.

To make you smile. by nadinmadeamess
To make you smile.
This is my contributing to the "Gift of Art" Challenge.

When I was little we lost my little brother before he was even born. I still miss him, even though we've never met. And I know he is waiting for me in Heaven.
My little child-heart was so sad to let him go.
Since then I have had this dream-hope that butterflies could fly up to wherever he is and bring him little greetings and news from down here.

On the 24th, my family will come together to celebrate Christmas as every year. Once again he can't be there.

If I could give him anything right now I would send the most beautiful blue butterfly to him, to make him smile and tell him that he is loved.


Artwork details:
  • A3 size
  • mixed media: charcoal, Derwent colored pencils (Studio and ColorSoft), acrylic paint
  • working time: approx. 10hrs in total


Created exclusively for this contest.
