The Art of Life
Photobucket I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed. Photobucket

~~I've mentioned before how much I love vintage children's illustrations. Today I've been ooohing and aaaaahing over the lovely work of the Belgian artist Marcel Marlier.
Such innocence and sweetness captured.

Hi Kasie

Her work is "Beauty Full".

What a wonderful source of inspiration.

Lots of love

Ever since I read "Martine au zoo" in 1993, I have admired these illustrations, but I didn't learn the name of the artist. I, too, love vintage illustrations of children. And Marlier is awesome! I'm happy to have rediscovered his work. There is a modern version of the Martine series with different illustrations. Why would anyone substitute these charming pictures! I'm buying a version of the original "Martine au zoo" today. Thanks for posting.

I enjoyed visiting your blog.
