A Painting is not a Fish

I’m worried. Really worried, I mean. It looks like we’re going to run out of paper, panels, paint and stuff already! If there isn’t a good supplier in Tylenay, we’re going to have big problems! Of course, I could cut down on my painting and sketching, but the world is…

The philosophy of painting, or why to paint.

Gralen — I’ve been here before. Lesla and I were ambushed when we were on our way to Gralen, and shortly after we met the youngest shard-like offspring of Ar — the Nameless. Now master Jeran and me, we’re here — and it’s pretty peaceful. Though that doesn’t mean there’s…

We’re leaving!

Oh gosh, my master, he’s such an old man! Well, he’s plenty cute, and wise, and not all that old! But it’s such fun teasing him! And anyway, we’re in such high spirits! We’ve been all over Veray to sketch and draw and paint (in tempera, to make quick color…

Fun and fair in Veray

Early spring… Lovely weather… Agreeable companions: even Maile the carter’s dog was well-behaved! We stayed in the half-way inn, Inn Halfway, as it’s called, where we’ve been almost regulars. The food is good, the white dog is still there, she’s the parent of carter Maile’s dog, and, well, I had…

Dol-Rayen

We slept very well in the hay-loft, close together under the rough blankets. When we woke up our seal was still there! We said our prayers and repaired the holes in our heads — I still couldn’t see what Vurian did but I could see that it worked. “If I’m…

Fighting on the sea

After a couple of days I felt better. At least I didn’t feel sick all the time any more, only when there was a bit more wind than at other times, and when I ate anything and forgot to look at the sea for a while afterwards. Rhinla was high…

Dreams!

Ever since we’ve been in the Order House in Essle, we’ve been having the weirdest dreams. Well, that was sort of what we wanted, we wanted to dream with Vurian, and help him figure out which Gods he wanted to get out of his head. This is the first of…

Back in Essle!

After all the hard work we put ashore and made a small fire and sat there eating some more of the pancakes. Not all, so we’d have some left for breakfast, but a lot, because we were all very hungry. Rhinla thought of making fireworks! She took a willow-twig, lit…
