drawing challenge

This weeks host for the drawing challenge is the lovely Patrice and her theme is "moon". I tell you right away that my entry is nothing I made. This is a painting my dad  made. When I saw this weeks theme "moon" I just had to think about my dad and the only thing I could do is show you a painting made by him. I don't know why, everything that has to do with the moon, stars or the universe makes me think of him. He made quite some works with stars and the moon, although I thought it where a lot more, so that was funny... maybe because he used the colour blue a lot? Listen to the dark side of the moon? Has a lot of books of the universe? I don't know...but it just felt wrong to make something myself.

I wish you all a nice weekend and for more "moons" check out Patrice's blog!


  1. wauw....
    your dad made a wonderful painting!

    i like it that it's the arth

    Patrice A.

  2. dear Celine,the nice thing about these drawing challenges is that all those themes are surprising me each time with eye candy but also with words, thoughts of the person behind it and i like that.
    i wish i knew which melody your father had in mind painting this violin playing astronaut, lovely post, x

  3. O, that would be great playing on the moon. It is a exciting drawing and great color.

  4. so very nice... a man on his own on the moon just with the music he wants to play. so very romantic!
    and so nice of you to share this image and what it is about with us.
    maybe he plays "blue moon"?

  5. playing on the moon in blue... geweldig artistieke pa heb je, leuk om te zien en te lezen :-)

  6. Very personal choice, which definitely shows where your talent comes from! I love that deep blue colour! And how poetic to play the violin on the moon? Maybe it's the only language Aliens might understand?

  7. Like father like daughter when it comes to talents!
    I wonder what a violin would sound like on the moon?
    Would it echo? Would it float out to the universe?
    Would we hear it in our dreams?
    Happy week to you, Celine. xo Carole

  8. A fascinating tribute to your Dad, Celine. I am with Carole in wondering about the sound of the violin on the Moon.
