Beloved little houses

Wende Dein Gesicht der Sonne zu, dann fallen die Schatten hinter dich.
(aus Afrika)

Es war aber nicht nur die wunderbare Frühlingssonne, die mich inspiriert hat, diese zwei kleinen Bildchen mit meinen geliebten Häuschen zu bemalen, sondern auch meine Schwester, die diese Woche Geburtstag hatte. Ich habe diese zwei kleinen Bilder für sie gemalt damit sie weiß, wie sehr ich ihr sonniges Gemüt liebe, das mir auch bisweilen hilft, die Schatten hinter mir zu lassen. 

In English this quote from Africa means: 

Turn your face to the sun and you will leave the shadow behind you. 

Well, and not only the first sunny days of spring inspired me to paint these two little pictures with my beloved little houses but also my sister who had her birthday this week.
I painted the pictures for her as a birthday present since with these little colorful pictures I wanted to let her know how much I love her sunny nature that helped me too, to leave the shadows behind me.  

P.S. I will link this post to APR and the Sunday Sketches and send my very best wishes to Jen whose birthday is today. 




  1. Hallo Stefanie, beide Teile sind so wunderschön, Deine Schwester hat sich bestimmt sehr gefreut.

  2. I enjoy your bright, colourful houses by the sea, and particularly the curly smoke rising into the sky. I wish I could be there today.
    I have not heard the African quote before, but it is so true, and so good to remember.
