Olgas Odd Friends by Anita Inverarity

Original Ink Drawing by Anita Inverarity

Quirky Quines- Series 4- Animal Whimsy
This is from my series of Scottish Inspired Girls
“Quine” means girl in the North East of Scotland.
Its my local dialect and we call it the Doric.
In this series the girls are joined by their furry & feathered friends :)

Olga came over to the Shetland Isles in her hand-made Viking Boat with her friends the Owl & the Pussycat (a little inspiration from the Edward Lear poem in this one).

    Beautiful. I struggle to express what I feel about your work. One emotion it inspires is a feeling of peace. The faces all seem so placid and at peace. Even the cats and other little creatures look friendly. You must have a reservoir of peace in your soul to be able to depict the feeling so well.

    I sent you an email but I don’t think you received it, so I have cut and pasted it into a Bubblemail for you tonight.

  • Thank you so much Dave for your wonderful comment :)) All I can say is its the process of “doing” the art that gives me a sense of peace. Yes on relection, thats definately the case :))) I will catch up with your bmail in a mo xxx
