Siesta Mode

This is how I still feel like after the holidays. I suppose I am not the only one? Lazy and tired from too much food. So I decided it is time to go back to aerial hoop tonight!

This image is part of my Mexico travel book from last spring. I decided to fill up the remaining pages during the Christmas break and I still have a couple to go. It is nice to dwell in memories full of sun and bright colours.

This is one of the lovely street dogs I encountered during my walks in  Malinalco, Mexico.

Inktober Leftover

I originally started drawing this one for the last prompt of Inktober titled slice.

But as the woman has finished eating almost all the cheese, I thought that the drawing did not fit the prompt that well any longer. Therefore, what you get are the leftovers.

At the Dreisam in Freiburg, Germany

Travelled to Switzerland and Germany last week, hence the break on the aerial themed illustrations for the #WorldWatercolorMonth. But I will continue from where I left off in the next week.

Until then, sketch from yesterday. I had a fabulous day with excellent company. We were sunbathing at the Dreisam river in Freiburg. Despite 35 degrees celsius I managed to get these two sketches done. Loved being in the sun for a week. Unfortunately it didn´t last long and I am back to the harsh reality of wet Icelandic summer again.

My friend Elise, having a nap in the afternoon sun. The grass is completely dried out and burned as it hasn´t rained in weeks.

On the streets of Malinalco, Mexico

These guys napping in the shadow during the afternoon heat. There are plenty of street dogs around here but most of them look well fed and they are very friendly towards people and vice versa.

They didn´t even blink once when I passed and watched them.

On the streets of Tulum, Mexico VIII

There were not as many street dogs around as I would have had expected, but a lot of people actually have dogs. I really miss having a dog. This one was snoozing in front of a paint supply shop.

Observation: It´s too hot to move during the afternoon heat.

Siesta, I love you!

And one more! One of my firsts and one of my all time favourites that is gracing this white wall in Oulu, Finland.
I will visit it soon enough 🙂
