I don’t have a lot of words today for I am enjoying my holiday, relaxing and doing nothing.
But I like to share some sweet little eggs I had painted to my sweet daughter for Easter breakfast.
Creativity has no limits and i believe that the more creative things you do the more creative you will be. and when you allow your imagination to take flight, you enter into a world of magic.

It is wonderful that my love for art and watercolour can be transfer to the egg.
Easter here in Norway is the world’s longest Easter holiday. It´s a time to go skiing in the mountain and stay all day long outdoor in the fresh air, or to relax with family and friends in a cabin just talking, reading crime novels and playing Yahtzee.
Other people including my mom, like to stay home and spend some time gardening. The winter is over so Easter is a good opportunity to tidy up the plants and shrubs and get the garden ready for spring and summer.
This year I will go to my friend’s cabin which is near the city and there is no snow (yippie!). I will make the Easter breakfast which will include eggs – boiled, scrambled, fried. The boiled eggs will of course be painted before we all sit down and eat together. One of the DIY activities we will be doing is to drain the eggs and paint them, and this must be the number one DIY activity among grown-ups and childrenat Easter.
Chickens, Easter eggs, (and sometimes Easter bunnies) are symbols for Easter. Yellow is the color for Easter so therefor I have painted my tray yellow so that it will bring out the colours of my exotic flowers and to lighten up my living room.
Daffodils and Fritillaries
love this exotic flowers and are now so inspired to do more watercolours.
Here I am using some wooden eggs that I found in the store. I suppose anything will do. I am looking farward to give these eggs as a present, so I am going to make them last for years, much longer than real eggs.
First I opened a book that I love for some inspiration,
and then I Googled for some pictures of pussy willows.
I like using pencil before I paint or draw. Then I start to paint using acrylic and watercolours.. After the paint is dry, I use a permanent pen to outline everything.
I do the final details in different colors using the Posca pen.
I been testing watercolours from Jane Davenport and i really like them. The Peerless Transparent Watercolours come in sheet form and i never seen anything like it. See more on youtube
