Great News! My Calendar is UP!

featured

I’ve been working on this project since the beginning of summer, and it is finally up!


The calendar is available in my store!

I can’t believe it! I spent so much time on this project, and I am so proud of how much my paintings have improved. The calendar features some of my best work and favourite paintings.

I hope you’ll visit the shop, if only to see the different pictures I shared there. I will slowly update my portfolio as well so that each painting is nicely featured. Some of the calendar pages will also be turned into prints and cards and other fun things, but the calendar is a bargain. You basically get 12 prints for a little bit more than the price of 1, plus a wooden hanger, stickers and the calendar grids.

I am lucky enough that my partner is a woodworker, and he was able to make the pine wood hangers that solved all my binding problems. I came up with the solution, and he was kind enough to make the wooden parts at just the right size.

I also made some stickers so that you can personalize the calendar to your life. I’ve included moon phases, birthdays, important dates and other cute symbols.

To make it all even more special, I also added some descriptions to the back of each page. I summoned my poetess heart and wrote some whimsical little paragraphs describing the animals and plants featured in each painting. I hope these little stories will make you even more curious about the natural world and make you want to explore and observe.

I really like the idea that you will have 12 prints and that you will be able to display them once 2023 is over.

And if you are wondering what I’ll be doing for the rest of 2022, well, I’ve started work for the Lunar New Year! Next year will be the year of the rabbit, or the cat in Vietnam. I jumped at this opportunity to paint cats, and I’m excited to create a few pieces for the occasion.

The regular newsletter will be back next week, but I just couldn’t wait to tell you about the calendar!

Please visit this page to see a little video and more pictures!

Take care 🧡🧡🧡

This week I’ve been thinking a lot about the next few months and what projects I want to push forward. At the beginning of the year I made a long list of plants I’d like to draw, and even if many have been crossed out, many more are still waiting. Other ideas have made the list even longer! So, I’ve been organizing, prioritizing and trying to make decisions. I’ll keep you posted!

The weather is finally looking up, and we just came back from a little break in the sun with the cats. Our old lady cat is such a sun lover and was so happy to lounge outside for the first time this year.

In other news, I’ve also completed the knitting part of my sweater (remember when I shared just the collar?). I still have a few finishing touches to work on for it to be completely finished, but the larger part of the work is done! Yay!

That’s it!
Until next week,

Take care 🧡🧡🧡

This week, I’ve been dreaming of summer. With our little seedlings growing each day, it is so much fun imagining our garden in just a few weeks. We are planting some different varieties of sunflowers this year: teddy bear and mammoth sunflowers seedlings have sprouted! Maybe it is because of that that I wanted to paint this sunflower. Yellow flower present very particular challenges because yellow paint it quite difficult to move around once it is on paper. Shadows are also different because you don’t want the bright yellow to turn grey or murky. All that makes for a very interesting painting experience. The sunflower also presents its own particular challenges. This time, I’ve surrendered and kept the centre of the flower quite simple, but I think I’ll research some more on the double spiral the seeds form and on how to draw them. In any case, it was once again a very fun painting to work on, and I hope you’ll like it too!

If you want to see more of my painting, head over to my portfolio!

Outside the atelier, I’ve been compulsively checking on our seedlings. Some of the seeds we bought this year were marked as having a low germination rate. So of course, they almost all sprouted! I’m not complaining, but it does mean that we will have some separation work to do. I’m hoping we will be able to do this with minimal disturbance and have good results. Any tips are welcomed!

That’s it!
Until next week,

Take care 🧡🧡🧡

Book Review: The Wild Swans, by Bernard Villiot and Anja Klauss

Book Reviews

(Par ici en Français!)

(Unfortunately, this book is not yet available in English. I hope you will still look for it as is it simply stunning!)

Another week, another great find at the library! The book fairies have been on my side lately, pushing forward lovely albums. This week, I’d like to share Les Cygnes Sauvages by Bernard Villiot and illustrated by Anja Klauss.

Where to start? There are so many things I liked about this book. First, the story of the Six Swan Princes is not one I know from childhood. Fairy tales from childhood and stories read later on have a different feel to them, don’t they? And this story has every fairy tale element one might wish for: wicked step-mother, absent father, animal transformation, sacrifice of a young sister, nonchalant prince, accusation of witchcraft AND magical flowers. It is such a beautiful story with so many things to analyze and think on. This story is already filled with magic, darkness and hope, and the illustrations by Anja Klauss succeed in adding even more to it.

Again, where to start? These illustrations are truly stunning. Their style reminded me of the golden age of illustration and work by Kay Nielsen. The graceful silhouettes and botanical patterns add a touch of romance that is perfect for this fairy tale. The modern colour palette composed of striking reds and deep teals create a dreamy and surreal feeling that envelops the readers. I am out of words to describe this incredible body of work. I went to explore Klauss’ portfolio, and I fell in love with each and everyone of her pieces. Every single one is imbued with so much magic, and they made me want to fall head first into each of the universes. I think this is it: the strength of the world building in these illustrations is just stunning!

I had such a good time reading this book and discovering the amazing work of Anja Klauss. I hope you will be able to find one of her books and share this wonderful experience. I might have called for other books from this amazing illustrator through the interlibrary loans… Stay tuned for more!

Book review: Les Cygnes Sauvages, par Bernard Villiot et Anja Klauss

(Ce livre est disponible en français: youpiii! )

Une autre semaine, une autre belle trouvaille Ă  la bibliothèque ! Les fĂ©es des livres ont Ă©tĂ© de mon cĂ´tĂ© ces derniers temps, en me poussant de jolis albums. Cette semaine, j’aimerais partager Les Cygnes Sauvages de Bernard Villiot et illustrĂ© par Anja Klauss.

Par oĂą commencer ? Il y a tellement de choses qui m’ont plu dans ce livre. Tout d’abord, l’histoire des Six Princes n’est pas une histoire que je connais depuis l’enfance. Les contes de fĂ©es de l’enfance et les histoires lues plus tard ont un caractère diffĂ©rent, n’est-ce pas ? Et cette histoire comporte tous les Ă©lĂ©ments de conte de fĂ©es que l’on peut souhaiter : belle-mère mĂ©chante, père absent, transformation en animal, sacrifice d’une jeune sĹ“ur, prince nonchalant, accusation de sorcellerie ET fleurs magiques. C’est une si belle histoire avec tellement de choses Ă  analyser et Ă  rĂ©flĂ©chir. Cette histoire est dĂ©jĂ  remplie de magie, de tĂ©nèbres et d’espoir, et les illustrations d’Anja Klauss rĂ©ussissent Ă  en rajouter encore plus.

Encore une fois, par oĂą commencer ? Ces illustrations sont vraiment Ă©tonnantes. Leur style me rappelle l’âge d’or de l’illustration et le travail de Kay Nielsen. Les silhouettes gracieuses et les motifs botaniques ajoutent une touche de romantisme qui convient parfaitement Ă  ce conte de fĂ©es. La palette de couleurs modernes, composĂ©e de rouges vifs et de teintes turquoises profondes, crĂ©e un sentiment de rĂŞve et de surrĂ©alisme qui enveloppe les lecteurs. Je suis Ă  court de mots pour dĂ©crire cet incroyable travail. Je suis allĂ©e explorer le portfolio de Klauss, et je suis tombĂ©e amoureuse de chacune de ses pièces. Chacune d’entre elles est imprĂ©gnĂ©e de tant de magie et m’a donnĂ© envie de me plonger tĂŞte la première dans chacun de ses univers. Je pense que c’est ça : la force de construction des mondes magiques dans ces illustrations est tout simplement stupĂ©fiante !

J’ai passĂ© un très bon moment Ă  lire ce livre et Ă  dĂ©couvrir l’incroyable travail d’Anja Klauss. J’espère que vous pourrez trouver l’un de ses livres et partager cette merveilleuse expĂ©rience. Il se peut que j’aie demandĂ© d’autres livres de cette Ă©tonnante illustratrice par le biais des prĂŞts interbibliothèques… Restez Ă  l’Ă©coute pour en savoir plus !

So, did you guess which fascinating plant-insect duo I was painting last week? Well, it was the incredible Monarch butterfly and Milkweed team! These two exceptional beings have a symbiotic relationship: the butterfly helps pollinate the plant, while the plant provides food for the caterpillars. It is truly incredible to learn more about this relationship, and it made the painting that much more fun and interesting. If you live in North America and have access to some land, it is a good idea to see which milkweed species is native to your area and to plant some! They have the most beautiful blooms and seed pods, which makes them attractive plants to have around the garden. Plus, who wouldn’t want to have the chance of seeing beautiful monarch butterflies?

If you want to see more of my painting, head over to my portfolio!

Spring is finally here! Yes, it is still snowing, and yes some days are colder than what I’d like, but look! Tulips have started to show up, promising us incredible blooms and colours.

That’s it!
Until next week,

Take care 🧡🧡🧡

Book Review: Planting the Wild Garden, by Kathryn O. Galbraith and Wendy Anderson Halperin

Book Reviews

(Par ici en Français!)

This week, I found this lovely book at the library. I was instantly drawn to it because of its aura of tranquility. Planting the Wild Garden by Kathryn O. Galbraith and illustrated by Wendy Anderson Halperin was the perfect book to spend a quiet moment.

This book is a celebration of seeds and their incredible ingenuity and variety. Following different types of seeds and animals, the readers learn some of the many dispersion strategies plants use. One cannot help but feel awed by the many different ways plants have devised to propagate seeds. It is so interesting! I am sure many readers will be inspired to see if they can glimpse some of the wonderful seeds and fruits described in this book.

To go with this fascinating topic, the illustrations are dynamic, detailed and soothing. There is so much going on with all the seeds, yet one feels at peace and quieted by the muted colours and gracious curves of each page. One thing that particularly impressed me with the illustrations if this book is the line work. There are so many textures and details rendered in a simple and elegant way with hatching and subtle line techniques. It is so well done! Combining these fine lines with muted colours gives the entire book a vintage and nature diary feel that is incredible effective in captivating the attention of the readers. Another thing that was particularly well done was the composition of each page. Most page include beautiful large illustration framed with details of animals and seeds. These smaller vignettes make each page very interesting to explore. I particularly liked the different views and movement that they capture. It is truly inspiring work.

As I am closing the garden, I am collecting many seeds. I am always very impressed by the incredible variety of shapes and textures these seeds have. I felt so inspired by this book. I am certain all gardeners and nature lovers will find something to nourish their love for nature in this book.

Book review: Ballade en Mer, par Nina Laden et Melissa Castrillon

(Ce livre est disponible en français: youpiii! )

Cette semaine, j’ai trouvĂ© ce joli livre Ă  la bibliothèque. Il m’a immĂ©diatement attirĂ©e en raison de son aura de tranquillitĂ©. Le Jardin Sauvage de Kathryn O. Galbraith et illustrĂ© par Wendy Anderson Halperin est le livre parfait pour passer un moment tranquille.

Ce livre est une cĂ©lĂ©bration des graines et de leur incroyable ingĂ©niositĂ© et variĂ©tĂ©. En suivant diffĂ©rents types de graines et d’animaux, les lecteurs apprennent quelques-unes des nombreuses stratĂ©gies de dispersion utilisĂ©es par les plantes. On ne peut s’empĂŞcher d’ĂŞtre impressionnĂ© par les nombreux moyens que les plantes ont imaginĂ©s pour propager leurs graines. C’est tellement intĂ©ressant ! Je suis certaine que de nombreux lecteurs seront inspirĂ©s de voir s’ils peuvent apercevoir certaines des merveilleuses graines et certains des fruits dĂ©crits dans ce livre.

Pour accompagner ce sujet fascinant, les illustrations sont dynamiques, dĂ©taillĂ©es et apaisantes. Il se passe tant de choses avec toutes ces graines, mais on se sent en apaisĂ© et calmĂ© par les couleurs sourdes et les courbes gracieuses de chaque page. Ce qui m’a particulièrement impressionnĂ© dans les illustrations de ce livre, c’est le travail du trait. Il y a tant de textures et de dĂ©tails rendus de manière simple et Ă©lĂ©gante par des hachures et des techniques de trait subtiles. C’est tellement bien fait ! La combinaison de ces lignes fines avec des couleurs douces donne Ă  l’ensemble du livre une impression de vintage et de journal de nature qui est incroyablement efficace pour captiver l’attention des lecteurs. La composition de chaque page est Ă©galement particulièrement rĂ©ussie. La plupart des pages comportent de belles grandes illustrations encadrĂ©es de dĂ©tails d’animaux et de graines. Ces petites vignettes rendent chaque page très intĂ©ressante Ă  explorer. J’ai particulièrement aimĂ© les diffĂ©rentes vues et le mouvement qu’elles capturent. C’est un travail vraiment inspirant.

Alors que je termine la saison au jardin, je collecte de nombreuses graines. Je suis toujours très impressionnĂ©e par l’incroyable variĂ©tĂ© de formes et de textures que prĂ©sentent ces graines. Je me suis sentie tellement inspirĂ©e par ce livre. Je suis certaine que tous les jardiniers et les amoureux de la nature trouveront dans ce livre de quoi nourrir leur amour de la nature.

I’ve started a new painting! I’m experimenting with a different style for this one, and it’s very interesting. This is an idea I’ve had for a long time, and I had planned to work on it later this year, but last week I decided now was the good time for it. Can you guess what I am painting? Here is a hint:

Outside the atelier, things are starting to feel a bit more like Spring. Mind you, everything is still covered under thick snow, but there is something in the air. We are also excited to start our seedlings soon. It’s always such a fun moment to prepare the plants we will have in the garden once the “real” spring will be here. This year, I’m dreaming of flowers and colours all around.

As I work on my new painting, I have been listening to The Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend. Some booktubers have compared it to Harry Potter, so I had no choice but to give this book a try. It is very entertaining so far!

That’s it!
Until next week,

Take care 🧡🧡🧡

Book Review: Yellow Kayak, by Nina Laden and Melissa CastrillĂłn

Book Reviews

(Par ici en Français!)

Yes, another book illustrated by the incredible Melissa Castrillon is the star this week. What can I say, I just love her style! After Dear Little One and How Beautiful, here is Yellow Kayak written by Nina Laden and illustrated by Melissa Castrillon.

It feels like such a treat to be able to find so many books illustrated by Melissa Castrillon at the library. This book is incredible beautiful, and I had to stop for a while and organize my thoughts before knowing where to start with this review. The first thing that captivated my attention was, like in How Beautiful, the feeling that the illustrations are made as engravings or linocuts. The colouring and textures enhance this style in a refreshing way. Speaking of colours, once again, the limited palette is composed of incredibly rich and slightly unexpected colours which give the book a vintage feel. Another thing I enjoyed was how round and organic the shapes are. Many are repeated throughout the book which is an incredible clever way to create a sense of cohesion and harmony. Because of this, the book feels like a coherent whole even when each page is beautiful enough to stand on its own. Finally, the sometimes funny and unexpected creatures that appear in this book are adorable and so expressive.

As for the story, this book is infused with the most inspiring sense of wonder. It is a very peaceful story and book which will please all sea lovers. I loved how so many familiar and unfamiliar species of marine creatures were depicted, making it an ode to the incredibly rich biodiversity of oceans. Adding to this ballet of creatures, the text is written as a poem. This adds a level of magic to the book and is also a great way to introduce poetry to young readers as they will undoubtedly be enchanted by the wonderful images the text invokes.

This completes my partial overview of books illustrated by Melissa Castrillon. Any of her books is sure to enchant the readers with their magical and lyrical illustrations. This one in particular will please all sea lovers and young naturalists. It is such a pleasure to share all these beautiful books with you, and I hope these reviews inspire you to visit your library’s children section to discover incredible books and stories.

Book review: Ballade en Mer, par Nina Laden et Melissa Castrillon

(Ce livre est disponible en français: youpiii! )

Oui, un autre livre illustrĂ© par l’incroyable Melissa Castrillon est la vedette cette semaine. Que dire, j’adore son style ! Après Mon Enfant ChĂ©ri et C’est Beau!, voici Ballade en Mer Ă©crit par Nina Laden et illustrĂ© par Melissa Castrillon.

C’est un tel plaisir de pouvoir trouver autant de livres illustrĂ©s par Melissa Castrillon Ă  la bibliothèque. Ce livre est d’une beautĂ© incroyable, et j’ai dĂ» m’arrĂŞter un moment pour organiser mes pensĂ©es avant de savoir par oĂą commencer cette critique. La première chose qui a captivĂ© mon attention est, comme dans le livre C’est Beau!, l’impression que les illustrations sont faites comme des gravures ou des linogravures. Les couleurs et les textures renforcent ce style d’une manière rafraĂ®chissante. En parlant de couleurs, une fois de plus, la palette limitĂ©e est composĂ©e de couleurs incroyablement riches et lĂ©gèrement inattendues qui donnent au livre un cĂ´tĂ© vintage. J’ai Ă©galement apprĂ©ciĂ© la rondeur et le caractère organique des formes. Beaucoup d’entre elles sont rĂ©pĂ©tĂ©es tout au long du livre, ce qui est une façon incroyablement intelligente de crĂ©er un sentiment de cohĂ©sion et d’harmonie. Grâce Ă  cela, le livre donne l’impression d’un tout cohĂ©rent, mĂŞme si chaque page est suffisamment belle pour se suffire Ă  elle-mĂŞme. Enfin, les crĂ©atures parfois drĂ´les et inattendues qui apparaissent dans ce livre sont adorables et tellement expressives.

Quant Ă  l’histoire, ce livre est imprĂ©gnĂ© d’un sens de l’Ă©merveillement des plus inspirants. C’est une histoire très paisible qui plaira Ă  tous les amoureux de la mer. J’ai adorĂ© la façon dont tant d’espèces familières et mĂ©connues de crĂ©atures marines sont reprĂ©sentĂ©es, ce qui en fait une ode Ă  la biodiversitĂ© incroyablement riche des ocĂ©ans. Ajoutant Ă  ce ballet de crĂ©atures, le texte est Ă©crit comme un poème. Cela ajoute un niveau de magie au livre et c’est aussi une excellente façon de prĂ©senter la poĂ©sie aux jeunes lecteurs, car ils seront sans aucun doute enchantĂ©s par les merveilleuses images que le texte Ă©voque.

VoilĂ  qui complète mon aperçu partiel des livres illustrĂ©s par Melissa Castrillon. N’importe lequel de ses livres est sĂ»r d’enchanter les lecteurs grâce Ă  ses illustrations magiques et lyriques. Celui-ci en particulier plaira Ă  tous les amoureux de la mer et aux jeunes naturalistes. C’est un tel plaisir de partager tous ces beaux livres avec vous, et j’espère que ces critiques vous inciteront Ă  visiter la section jeunesse de votre bibliothèque pour dĂ©couvrir des livres et des histoires incroyables.

Book Review: How Beautiful, by Antonella Capetti and Melissa CastrillĂłn

Book Reviews

(Par ici en Français!)

Last week, I shared Dear Little One and got slightly obsessed with the brilliant illustrations by Melissa CastrillĂłn. So of course, I ordered a few of her books from the inter-library loans, and here we are. Today I received How Beautiful written by Antonella Capetti and illustrated by Melissa CastrillĂłn.

This time, what really caught my attention is how this incredible illustrator stylizes nature and animals. I love how expressive and graceful her creatures are, and the way she adds movement and textures to plants is simply stunning. This combination creates a universe that is dense and lively, making the reader want to fall right into each page. There is so much to see and observe! Giving this luxuriant universe cohesion, the limited colour palette is unexpected. I also thought the colouring was fun and reminded me of lino-cut prints. Once again, such a fun and richly illustrated world!

The story is once again very sweet. In this book, we follow a tiny caterpillar who wonders what “beautiful” means. It is a quiet exploration of the forest and its inhabitants. Each animal has quite a personal definition of beauty. I really enjoyed meeting them all, and particularly liked the slightly snarky blackbird. Engaging the reader in the same reflection, the story is calm and soothing, making this the perfect book to read before bedtime, or when a little moment of peace is needed.

This book is simply stunning. Overflowing with personality, charm and peacefulness, this book will enchant all readers. I had such a great time poring over the pages, and I am sure you will too! And, yes, there might be another CastrillĂłn book coming up next week.

Book review: C’est Beau par Antonella Capetti et Melissa Castrillon

(Ce livre est disponible en français: youpiii! )

La semaine dernière, j’ai partagĂ© Mon Enfant ChĂ©ri, et je suis devenue lĂ©gèrement obsĂ©dĂ©e par les brillantes illustrations de Melissa CastrillĂłn. Alors, bien sĂ»r, j’ai commandĂ© quelque uns de ces livres auprès d prĂŞts inter-bibliothèques, et nous y voilĂ . Aujourd’hui, j’ai reçu C’est Beau!, Ă©crit par Antonella Capetti et illustrĂ© par Melissa CastrillĂłn.

Cette fois, ce qui a vraiment retenu mon attention, c’est la façon dont cette incroyable illustratrice stylise la nature et les animaux. J’aime l’expressivitĂ© et la grâce de ses crĂ©atures, et la façon dont elle ajoute du mouvement et des textures aux plantes est tout simplement stupĂ©fiante. Cette combinaison crĂ©e un univers dense et vivant, qui donne le goĂ»t de se plonger dans chaque page. Il y a tant de choses Ă  voir et Ă  observer ! Donnant une cohĂ©sion Ă  cet univers luxuriant, la palette de couleurs limitĂ©e est amusante et inattendue. J’ai Ă©galement trouvĂ© le coloriage fantastique et il m’a fait penser Ă  des estampes lithographiĂ©es. Encore une fois, un univers ludique et richement illustrĂ© !

L’histoire est une fois de plus très douce. Dans ce livre, nous suivons une minuscule chenille qui se demande ce que signifie “beau”. Il s’agit d’une exploration tranquille de la forĂŞt et de ses habitants. Chaque animal a une dĂ©finition bien personnelle de la beautĂ©. J’ai vraiment apprĂ©ciĂ© de les rencontrer tous, et j’ai particulièrement aimĂ© le merle lĂ©gèrement narquois. Engageant le lecteur dans la mĂŞme rĂ©flexion, l’histoire est calme et apaisante, ce qui en fait le livre parfait Ă  lire avant le coucher, ou quand un petit moment de paix est nĂ©cessaire.

Ce livre est tout simplement splendide. DĂ©bordant de personnalitĂ©, de charme et de tranquillitĂ©, ce livre sĂ©duira tous les lecteurs. J’ai pris beaucoup de plaisir Ă  en lire les pages, et je suis sĂ»re que vous en ferez autant ! Et, oui, il se peut qu’un autre livre de CastrillĂłn vous soit proposĂ© la semaine prochaine.
