Cats, ladybug and a heart

It's been another busy day over here but I thought that I would stop by to show you the little girls I have made. =)

I've been inspired by so many talented artists lately and among them are Adriana, Suzi Blu and Tascha. There are more wonderful women I admire out there that inspirer me with their art and words but I will save those for another day. ;)

As far as colours are concerned... well I still need to become a little more brave when it comes to that. I don't know why, but colours scare me more then I can explain. Perhaps I should try and force myself to pick up the brush everyday in something similar to my thumbnail book but... yeah... there is so much going on at the moment that I need to do before thinking about that. It is a lame excuse I know... Oh well who know what tomorrow might bring.

For you - made in june 2008. Black and white acrylic on watercolor paper.

Flickan och nyckelpigan - Made in june 2008. Black & white acrylic on watercolor paper. Colours added with caran d'Ache neocolor II crayons. Some glitter acrylic for her dress.

No name yet. I want to make something out of this lineart but haven't decided what it will be.

Katten & flickan - Made in July 2008. A drawing made with my Touch markers. My scanner didn't pick up the lighter shades so the background looks a bit strange.

Maybe you recognize this little thumbnail. It's was in my last entry when I showed my favorite thumbs from my thumbnail book. Well I was so inspired by it that I started painting it on a black canvas (that was inspired by Adri's Black canvas post). I'm not sure if I'm finished with it yet or not. My mother say it it fine the way it is, (she is the one who will get it), but I don't know... I still need to sign it however. The scanner didn't pick it up the way it looks in real life but I hope you will like it anyway. =)

Thanks for looking!


  1. i REALLY like the black and white paintings...they are not the norm. if your heart is drawn to them, then why not specialize in them??? you can always add color when the mood strikes you!

  2. you work is very beautifull.
    i like black and white drawings.
    keep up the good work

  3. Hi Annika,
    Thank you so much! I am so honored that you find me inspiring. You are such a great artist, I LOVE your work.
    I was afraid to color too, I use to draw realistic charcoal portraits in black and white and I always use to say that I didn't know how to use colors.
    You are so talented that I think you will be able to make awesome colorful paintings, if is that what you want.
    I think your paintings are awesome the way the are, but artists like to experiment.
    Have fun.
    Adri xoxo
