The Cold

By Oumbra

Another play on words.

A name for the common cold is "guturai" in Romanian. The word for quince is "gutuie" ..you see where this is going?

In winter I get these colds that last for weeks and haunt me all the season so my nose is always red and runny, I sneeze and I cough and I feel like cr*p, generally you don't want me around.

So I just thought it would make me feel better if I turned things around and made them cuter and nicer, that is: think of myself as a quince girl instead of a mopey person with a cold.

pheew..that was long!

your art is very strange and interesting! I decided to post on this one, but the other paintings are also very interesting.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my doodles :)

Why Blue Bicycle?

Well, some time ago I had a dream in which my cat was the owner of a coffee shop called like that.

Remembering the dream in the morning and all through the day made me have a really good time so it stuck with me.

Also, blue is my favourite colour and I see bicycle riding as a fun activity, care free and full of adventures. Pretty much how I feel when I paint.

I wish there was a coffee shop called Blue Bicycle.
