The story inside a painting

Almost every painting I’ve done has its own unique story. Even if it’s not something too exciting I can still remember how I felt while creating it, what season it was outside, how I felt while creating the piece.

So, I have a little story to tell. It’s about two sleeping cats. I go to work during the week and I often sit outside alone during my lunch hour. It’s the time I get to (eat), think, daydream, draw, read or take pictures with my phone. There is this quiet playground where I often spend this time and get to do my thing or just look around and see the people passing by. Cats are of course in the picture and I took this photo one of the times:

Just #love

I still meet those two troublemakers when I go there and they are the faulty ones for inspiring me to draw more. They can perfectly tell the story of my painting. A story about piece and quiet, about autumn and love. Because sadly,

animals are much better teachers when it comes to love, rather than humans.

Animals are not jealous, nor greedy. They can either show love, be nice or just ignore you, which is still alright. They can tell a story of a painting so easily.

First a sketch, but a couple of days later, I could not get any sleep until I finished the watercolour on this one illustration that I am beginning to be so proud of:

The story behind a painting – Sleeping cats

It’s my baby, it’s the fruit of my inspiration and love. I miss the summer so bad, but autumn is so wonderful that I just can’t help it but enjoy it. Be alone when you need to so you can spot all the things that can actually make you happy. I called this blog Happy2cycle and I’ve realised that I need to do more to spread this message. It doesn’t need to be only cycling what makes you happy, you need to find your own story and inspiration. Happy thoughts and useful changes would follow, I guarantee this. 

And lastly, if you feel burdened, go on a diet and avoid bad thoughts and negative people.

Oh, and with Hope Sandoval’s new album coming out soon… I just can’t have a better month than October this year:))

About Kremi

Hello everyone! My name is Kremi and welcome to my blog about cycling and all the other stuff that come up to my mind in the meanwhile! This is something I’ve wanted to do for such a long time now, to share my cycling experiences and emotions with you. I had never really thought that cycling would bring me this much joy and feeling of freedom. What was I doing until now really? But better start late than never after all. Anyway, I often go on day trips with the local cycling groups to explore the sights nearby. It’s ofter in a over 50 km range, which turns into a good exercise too:) You will often see me post pictures from my solo trips, when I usually stop somewhere nice and quite and do some reading or drawing (my other two ever so ovely and favorite hobbies). So stay tuned and I’ll be more than happy to hear back from you too!
