My Inspirations for February II

28 Feb

In February I’ve really been inspired by two artists; Kees van Dongen and Kandinsky, and other things such as Manic Street Preachers (anniversary!), peacocks, films such as The Young Victoria and The Invisible Woman. Japanese sakura trees, beautiful gardens and temples were also very inspiration, perhaps due to this late winter days when I long for flowers and spring the most.

I’ve also read The Lord of the Rings I and II this month, and I’ve started reading the third part.

    I have been impressed by all of the art you have done posts about this month, but I think I am most impressed that you have read books 1 and 2 of LOTR in one month! It took me nearly half a year to finish the whole thing so well done.

      Thank you! Coming home from school and reading LOTR has been one of my greatest pleasures these past weeks, and still is (I only started reading part III)!
