drawing challenge No 164: GRASS




In my family we love to have a picnic
and I loved to play outside with my sister




Imagine a cave in a clump of flowering shrubs behind the house.
Like in a huge nest my sister and me padded out the ground with fresh tufts of grass, 
built a carpet of it (the adults weren't happy 'bout destroying the lawn)
We played 'neighbourhood' with our friends in the next bushes: we visited us, barefoot, brought some fruits and Schnökerkram, sweets, from the little corner shop.






For this week's drawing challenge No 164 dear Veronica is our host. Her theme is GRASS. 
I have taken my old linocut of green roses {made it in 1993, you find more of it here} have drawn with oil crayon a tuft of grass and added soil.

My sister Irena lives over 20 years in Canada. 
She and Frédéric came for a visit to Hamburg (Mom's birthday. It was her voiceover in a short film by the ecology group in Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg, started with: "The grass is green, but toxic..." in the early 80th). They are already back in Montréal, now. I have padded the ground of my heart with fresh sweet memories...





Thank you for your visit. 
I wish you a sunny Sunday, outside and indoors!
(in Montréal und Hamburg... and around the world)

For more GRASS please come to Veronica's pretty place

  3. Grass is so common and also so special. What if we couldn't have a picnic or play in the grass... Wonderful how you've combined your linocut with a grass drawing and soil. - eric
