The 2016 Art Journal Adventure - Week 13 - Illustrate a Qoute

Hello and welcome

I am following Joggles inspiring blog and since January this year, Barbara (the owner of the blog) has been running a Challenge called "The 2016 Art Journal Adventure" both on her blogg and on Facebook, with a new theme every week. Last week the theme was "Illustrate a Qoute". And I have long been thinking about one of Bjørn Bjørnsons poems "Jeg velger meg april".
Below you can read the poem (in Norwegian):


Jeg velger meg april
Jeg velger meg april
I den det gamle faller,
i den det ny får feste;
det volder litt rabalder,-
dog fred er ei det beste,
men at man noe vil.

Jeg velger meg april,
fordi den stormer, feier,
fordi den smiler, smelter,
fordi den evner eier,
fordi den krefter velter,-
i den blir somren til!

Bjørnstjerne Martinius Bjørnson (born 8 December 1832 in Kvikne, Norway - died 26 April 1910 in Paris, France) was a Norwegian playwright, author and poet who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1903 (Source Wikipedia).

I think spring is so beautiful, where everything starts to sprout to life and where birds sing ♪♪♪♪♪
A delicious waiting for the summer, just like Bjørnstjerne Bjørnstjerne said in his poem.

I want to illustrate the spring and the poem so here it is my contribution to week 13 with the Qoute; Jeg velger meg april ( I choose April).


Here is some close ups:

Hugs, Anita
