Early - to wake up

this buck is too early so now has to wait till the first morning light will arouse the outside world. i wanted to draw how it feels when i'm not awake yet but it's almost like begining to feel the world that's about to come to its senses at the other side of my eyelids and even with my eyes shut it is as if i could see my one of a kind mister hawthorn beside me and that's the door of my wardrobe left ajar and now i swear it is my carpet on the floor and that's my gitar at the corner and there are my toys and my schoolbag too for sure and when my mum wakes me up everything is in the exact same place the way i saw it a few minutes before while i was still in my dream. interesting isn't it? and you can read out of the eyes of the trees and the clouds oh dear you are too early! you are not expected till quarter to seven in the morning. And see he is still flummoxed and his dream is there gently laid over his back.

this drawing shows a clearing under the cover of the early morning mist you can see most likely when going by an intercity train still feeling a bit of some sleeping powder in your eyes and there they are just lines not moving but you can be sure they are there and they are real. for me that's the best part of traveling by rail to my grandparants. and on the way i know where to find those deers and rabbits and the birds i can see them even if my train's flying that fast cos i'm a pro a keen observer

  6. hi shelby healey. he is not winking he is like a border a dividing line and the bright side is the deer's dream and the sleeping side over the frontier is everything that is real the forest itself so he's like a boundary tree whose one side is always sleeping while the other is awake therefore he sees everything cos when in the real world it is daytime your dreamland is snoozing you know he is not meant to wink but sure it can be seen this way as well so he makes those who've arrived to the border early and therefore flummoxed by sensing those both worlds feel easy and calm so you do know now bye and thanks for dropping me your line

  11. A very nice idea, deserving a fairy-tale! I like the tree, which is the dividing line between reality and dreaming (sleeping). I like that all the trees are smiling. And I've just noticed a little cloud in the shape of a heart, as if embracing a star?!

  12. hi Lili! I love how the day and night mix in that middle space, one eye shut, one eye open! The beginning of a new day is my favorite time of day! Beautiful little drawing you did here!

  17. Hello LiLi I cannot believe you only have one award so far! But I think you deserve a lot more. I have a feeling it won't be a long wait - you are very charming and realy are developing your talent.

    Thankyou for the comment on my blog. It wasn't me who was the unhappy boy in the background.

    I was the sad Geppetto in the foreground ....
