my white room


i never saw a moor—
i never saw the sea—
yet know i how the heather looks
and what a billow be.

8/4/13

time after time

going back to the city but staying there
where the trees are guarding us. 






every year brings more and more comfort to my drawing
hand, every year it gets a little harder to go back to the loud 
noises and smells. 

i kept a diary of the moments and lines in black and white
and three days before leaving started a colored one, have
never tried this. drawing while i walk in the forest - feels 
free, very close to my heart. 












i hope you are well, dear ones

















летом заканчивается год и начинается новый, так было всегда. 

все время были лес, озеро и краски. и родители. знакомые дороги,
только в этом году нет кукушкиных слез. и цвета немного желтее
из - за июня без дождей. совсем близко появилась морошка, много 
листьев и засохшие цветы, которые не стали ягодами. а потом начались
ливни и лес стал прежним,  с мягкими кочками и узкими лужами, там
где на дороге положены бревна. я все это очень запомнила глубоко в
себе. и поехала обратно

  8. dear olga,
    welcome back! i'm so glad to see you here again.

    i can see the forest in which you've spent days
    through your drawings, feeling cool clear green air.
    you deliver me the silence and the tenderness of nature.
    thank you...
