A Sanctuary under the Sea

Here is the Dog Keeper’s sanctuary, in the Goblins’ realm, underground, at the bottom of the sea. It has its own thermal pools and the windows are made of polished crystal. Goblins work hard at making their homes the epitome of Hygge and are skilled in all sorts of crafts. They are also avid readers. Unfortunately for me, these books are written in Goblin. l cannot even decipher the titles, I can only imagine what they are about… This is the little story of the Dog Keeper, the gentle goblin who takes care of our beloved dogs when they depart from this world.

The Goblins’Portal

The Dog Keeper welcoming our beloved friends.When my dear Loki died 6 years ago, in the evening, I saw him. He was so happy because he didn’t feel the pain any longer, he was feeling so fine and he looked at me, uncomprehending, he felt my (bottomless) sadness and wondered why I was not rejoicing. A few days later, I dreamed we were bathing together in the sea. I was so glad he came to visit me. The sun was shining and the water was crystal clear. I know he will be here for me one day, by the Goblins Portal. Wagging his tail. Bringing his ball at my feet.   This

The Dog Keeper

Soon the end of the Midnight Sun… looking forward to seeing the stars again in one month.. This is an image in a long series about the Goblin world. Goblins love animals, crafts and music. I know my Loki is with them.I had fun painting the cave, this little Goblin’s home. I dreamed my Beloved and I lived in a big mansion by a river. The style was very 1920’s and there was a big conservatory (like a glass veranda) and many rooms. We decided to open a bed and breakfast but on our own terms. We wanted only a few guests and to keep to a reasonable price so that it

Into the Forest We Go

The grey skies are back, yeah! It hadn’t rained for a long while. I love the sound of rain at night, I always sleep better. Spring is here!   This is a detail from the animation I’m working on. I’m having more and more fun every day. And a wallpaper

Waterfalls

I’ve always been enthralled by some aspects of Japanese and Chinese cultures. Lately, the pull has been so powerful that I started to study Chinese again, but not just pinyin, the characters too. I’m also tempted by Japanese, but as usual, I have far too much on my plate! Finally! It took nearly six months to complete this animation. The animation took just under two weeks, the painting itself took ages. It was quite intense and immersive. I can’t believe it took so many hours every day for nearly half a year, just to produce a video of 3 minutes. But this makes me so happy. Spending my days in imagination’s thrilling

Soul’s Sweet and Deep Music

I’ve finished the first part of my little project of an animation. I say “little” but I actually spent 4 months painting a single scene, and not just a few hours a day. This was fun. The music is La Celtie et l’Infini by Alan Stivell. Here is the animation:

A Bookmark

This is my first digital painting made with a fantastic program, Clip Studio Paint. This software is really amazing, I much prefer it to Photoshop or Corel Painter (which was great… years ago). On top of it, it’s very affordable. I mean really. This is a bookmark which I might order prints of, and sell a few on Etsy. But first, I think I will paint several bookmarks and perhaps sell them as a lot. Or not.  This mansion is called the Lodge of the Northern Woods. It has numerous  fireplaces, an excellent cook and a very charming host. It is not possible to book in advance. It’s the kind of place

A Magical Garden

Summertime is when I work the most, therefore it gets very tricky to find the time and energy to paint. It happens quite often I manage to paint just a few hours here and there on a painting only to give up after a few weeks because the vision is gone and I lost the connection with what I had in mind. This year, though, I’ve changed my approach. I’ve been working on some very small projects which take only a few hours to complete, so there is less frustration. I’m in the process of creating libraries of elements which I can incorporate in a composition. I’m planning to make several libraries,
