inspiration . amanda blake


i was relaxing/drawing/chatting with the kids at the table the other day when i realised i was drawing a boat pulling into a shore. the background was all pretty usual ~ mountains with trees and a few signs of life. but, i wondered ~ why am i drawing a boat?? i was a bit surprised. . . then when i was reading blogs/surfing etsy i realised where my subconscious had been visiting!

i love amanda's characters and i also love her landscapes, and her boats!

:: she waited for the ice to melt
:: when the sea had turned to purple they knew they had gone too far
:: she had made a promise to the bees

amanda blake's shop + blog.

Amanda's work is really beautiful!
How fun to draw with your boys - perhaps time to show some of their art? I love children's drawings - they are so honest!
