Another fantastic idea for adding colourful rainbows to your windows for those to see on their daily walks.
I posted last week about the rainbows currently popping up in peoples windows to give thanks to those working during the Covid-19 lock down and how I love to see them when out.
This one is made of a stack of books in one of our neighbours windows. I had spotted it last week and then went looking for it again so I could photograph and make this sketch.
Just by a strange coincidence it happens to be World Book Day today also, which makes it doubly fantastic! I know for my children, now 9 years old that books are a huge part of their lives and especially at the moment they can provide an escape from the lock down.
Rainbows bring colour and hope to neighbours windows during the Covid-19 pandemic.
During the current Covid-19 lock down when everyone stays at home apart from our daily walk for exercise it is wonderful to see so many rainbows in peoples windows.
I think the rainbows in windows idea started as a fun game for children to spot the decorations on their daily walks but has now become a way of saying thank you to NHS staff and key workers who our going out to work, putting themselves at risk to look after those who need care.
When I am out on my walk with my family I know the colourful windows really lift our spirits during this strange time when a lot of what we take for granted, like seeing loved ones and having a day out are no longer possible.
I wanted to capture a few of these with my sketches and put them up on my virrtual window, for a lot more people to see. I will try and do a few more and I hope you like them and they make you smile 🙂
As the world is in lock down due to the Covid-19 Coronavirus and people can’t be with the ones they love, I am painting personal gift cards.
I was thinking of drawing some ‘just to say’ cards before the outbreak started as I thought it would be lovely to just send a card to someone for no particular reason. Just to say… I love you, I am thinking of you, you are not alone. For example.
So when the lock down started and I could see people couldn’t see their loved ones, celebrate life events and be there in person for each other I thought it was an ideal time to receive a card telling you that people are thinking of you.
I hadn’t originally thought of painting each one individually though! But as I cannot get to the printers and have extra time on my hands now a lot of my work has been postponed or cancelled, then I thought why not make mini sketches for each one.
Each card is £4.95, which includes UK postage (for overseas there is an extra £1.50) and 10% from every sale will go to the NHS Lothian Covid-19 Appeal.
When ordering your card you can request a particular flower for the front (I have also drawn rainbows) and also a message for the inside which I will hand write for you, before sending direct to your loved one. You can order your cards at the link below.
