What's a snowglobe if not a little world.

The fortunes of snowglobe isn't in the object itselfs it's in what you can see inside, a little world that makes you dream and brings your mind into a tale, a moment that keeps life and tousands snowflakes steal a wisheper.

Our little mices are still skating, as time goes by you shake the globe and can still say "Look it's snowing!!!"

Zephyrus ACEO

ACEO, 2.5 x 3.5 inches, watercolour and gouache , 2008.
Zephyrus was another of the Anemoi, the God of the gentle west wind, brother of Boreas. He was known as the messenger of spring. In one story, he and Apollo vied for the love of a handsome Spartan youth, Hyacinth. Hyacinth chose Apollo, which made Zephyrus mad with jealousy. He later found them playing with a discus, and blew a gust of wind that caused the discus to hit Hyacinth in the head and kill him. Apollo then created the hyacinth flower from his blood

White "Four O'Clocks", the "Alba" variety. White flowers are always my favorites. I always envisioned a garden of all white flowers. Wouldn't that be amazing!
