This week’s topic over at Illustration Friday is “Proverb”.
I slacked off last week and didn’t post anything for the “dessert” topic, but I’ve definitely made up for it this week! (Actually I did create something for the dessert theme but wasn’t happy with it so didn’t post it.)
I went a little nuts with this theme, and created not one but 5 paintings! I’m thinking of doing a few more and making a calendar of proverb paintings. What do you think?
I hand-wrote the proverbs onto the paintings after the paint had dried, using black ink and a calligraphy pen – one of the old fashioned ones that you dip in the ink. I was very relieved not to have any major ink-blot mishaps on the paintings (although I got lots of ink on my fingers)!

Wow, you were on a roll with these, they are fantastic! I honestly can’t decide which is my favourite.. you should definitely do a calendar!
Hi Kirsten, inspiring pieces! I wish I’m as productive as you… I think you should definitely take up poppylocke’s suggestion! Thanks for visiting my site 🙂
I´ll say you are on a roll!….wow,,,,I love it!! Wonderful clean color and I like all the proverbs…you have to do a calendar. I just posted a second proverb to IF too. I love this theme this week.
You have inspired me to post a few more of mine too:)
Hi thanks for the nice comment on my site! I love your style, I relate to it.
I think a calendar of proverbs is a great idea. let me know if you market it, it might be nice to have a daily/monthly positive engery reminder about.
Best to you!
These are lovely and I can envision them in a calendar. You are very brave trying that ink at the end of the project…
How lovely! I love those old-fashioned pens. The quote about acorns and trees is one of my favorites. Great job this week!!
Beautiful! I love how pretty colours flow. Very natural and peaceful!!
What a wonderful series of proverbs! I loved this IF topic because everyone have taken on a different proverb to illustrate!
Thanks everyone! I enjoyed painting these 🙂
Gina that’s what I’ve loved looking at everyone’s responses to this topic. There’s a few great proverbs people have chosen that I thought about doing but couldn’t think of a good idea for – everyone has come up with such great things!
