bittersweet
























This is a sketch of my mum and me. I drew it when we came back of a holiday in Finland in 2006. We went swimming and had so much fun with a underwatercamera and diving goggles. The sketch isn't very good but everytime I see it it makes me smile, because of the silly stuff we did. Today it's 5 years ago that she past away and I'm glad that I made this weird sketch of us.

  4. it is good to have memories at least, this drawing is a tresor... you know, your post touches me a lot, my little brother went away in January, it makes 8 years now... it is not my favorite time of the year.
    (I am thinking of a lot: I should tell it on my blog or not? I am not sure about)
    Sei ganz lieb gegrüßt,
    x Stefanie

  6. Hi, Celine!
    I do not think it's a bad sketch
    It is a sketch made for you from your feelings
    And there are no rules that say a given feeling is better or worse than another
    This is a drawing that for your mother (and for you) is more valuable than another maded for any artist worldwide. I'm sure she, from where she is, loves your drawing. :)
