IMG_3478IMG_3709 Today, I would like to share with you some old paintings I did. These are soon going to be 7 years old. The first picture is a painting I did of Tintin, hardcore Tintin fans will notice that I have taken the liberty to change the shape of the champagne bottle. At the time I did not even know Tintin, and now I have the whole collection… The Tintin picture was in a way commissioned. A friend of mine was in a band, and they wanted to do a Tintin themed concert, as the singer loved Tintin. Well in the end, it was the only Tintin decoration that they had. At the gig I even read out loud some poetry, which was a first for me. One of the poems I read was I carry your heart with me by E.E. Cummings, no one knew it but it was the one everyone enjoyed the most.  The second painting is one I did of Calvin & Hobbes, but that’s obvious isn’t it? I think that I still have it somewhere. I think it was done in a moment of not wanting to study. Today, it reminds me that I have been so lazy to when it comes to expressing myself through paining and drawing.  Around the same time I did a painting of Spiderman, but that one I didn’t think of photographing. It was a present for a friend, and maybe it is still decorating her home? 

I would like to thank Gulara and Ula for nominating me for the Five Photos Five Stories Challenge. In yesterday’s post, I mentioned why Ula decided to nominate me. Today, I decided to share some art with you as Gulara nominated me as my recent post on art had inspired her. Speaking of art, I would like to nominate Trista

The rules of the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge are: 1) Post a photo each day for five consecutive days. 2) Attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or a short paragraph. It’s entirely up to the individual. 3) Nominate another blogger to carry on the challenge. Your nominee is free to accept or decline the invitation. This is fun, not a command performance!
