A gift from nature
Children love to walk the streets and pick up pretty leaves, feathers and stones. This is a beautiful mind that you have for a while in childhood. As an adult, you are no longer interested in these pretty objects. If there is money on the street, we will try to give it. I love these little things that kids bring from time to time. When they bring them, the hearts they bring with them are so beautiful. These hearts are precious gifts that we receive at no cost.
I thought about nature for a moment. Nature brings us these gifts all day long. The fallen leaves that gently fall over your head while you walk, the fallen leaves that emit beautiful fall colors from the floor, the pretty shiny stones you accidentally find on the beach, the shells, and the birds chirping with a musical sound... Nature, like children, teaches us beauty every day.
Once upon a time, my friend Emilia showed me a red robin feather that she stumbled upon. She treasured it in her purse and showed it to me. I thought to myself that her heart was more beautiful than that feather. After all, that feather was something she happened to be sitting under a tree and picked up when Robin flapped her wings. I thought she had a bigger windfall than her lottery.
I am currently drawing and writing a children's book. The inspiration given to me by a friend has become a fairy tale book. Soon I will post this book here.
And today, I completed the previously drawn valley picture. Because I live in an area where there are not many mountains on a flat land, I sometimes miss valleys. Korea is surrounded by mountains to the extent that 63% of the land area is said to be mountains. And those mountains are rocky mountains that are dominated by rough granite. That's why it's easy to see rocks and valleys like this in every neighborhood. A valley like this is always in my childhood memory photos.
Maybe that's why when I drew the valley, I wanted to redraw this valley in a larger size someday. It's a small painting today, but I think this kind of work helped to soothe my homesickness to some extent.
