Can it be true that I hold here in my mortal hand a nugget of purest green?

This post on Paris Breakfasts made me think about my recent love of the colour green. Over the past few months I’ve bought a handbag, shoes, dress, necklace, cuddly frog, more shoes, bowl, vases, flowers to put in the vases - all in green. My Caran D’Ache Light Olive Green pencil is being worn down faster than any other colour in the box at the moment!

Everyday matters challenge 116 – Something green
I was delighted to discover that the latest challenge is to draw something in my favourite colour of the moment. This lovely soft cuddly frog was from Ikea – I think it is so cute! I decided that since I don’t have a handsome prince I may as well have a frog to kiss instead!


Everyday Matters challenge 112 – Something fresh
This tiny vase was one of a set of three also bought at Ikea, and the flowers I bought to go in them seem to be lasting for weeks!

These are gorgeous too! It's wonderful how you get that froggy looking soft and cuddly, you have a knack for that. I've just bought myself a small book with brown pages and wasn't sure how to use it but you've inspired me to use my pencils in it, the colours look so good against the background. Love both these illustrations!

Great frog! I'm so glad that I had a minute to visit your blog and to see all of the EDM challenges you have posted. They are unusual and quite wonderful!

I am also a lover of green. My Dad loved green when we were kids and we always teased him...he bought everything green. Now, green is back! These are two cute drawings. I really like the kraft paper color background on your drawings. All are lovely.
