dc driftwood

and there, by the sea one day, the little girl met
driftwood man.
he was shaped by salty water and wind and he had travelled a long way.
he was filled with stories, tales of shores near and far,
he told her about the secrets of the sea.

Mano presented us with a theme which tingles the imagination,
please take a look at this creative centepede's blog,
you'll find more driftwood there.

wishing you all a warm weekend


  1. beautiful!
    all your paintings are little tales
    and this one a precious one
    the sea, a driftwood man....
    and again
    I could see a children's book!

  4. he may be a little grand for my own imagination, he is even scaring me a bit, seriously. but i'm impressed by his veins/muscle though.
    unexpected, this!

  5. Dear Renilde,
    first I thought of a skeleton, but the little girl seems to be fearless... Now I see, of course its a (huge) driftwood man!
    Amazing the story, a fairytale, very well-narrated and painted by you.


  6. There's the seed of a lovely book there-no?

  7. your fairytale is so lovely. first I thought "the poor man", but when I read your words, there is a great magic and I'll meet him for to hear his stories. beautiful driftwood picture with great sky - I want to go denmark now...
    thank you for participation in this challenge! :-) mano

  8. What a fascinating interpretation of our theme, Renilde. This image will be in my dreams tonight. -sus

  9. wow Renilde!

  12. Do you know the driftwood sculptures made by Heather Jansch? Thats what I thought of, when I saw your lovely painting. It must be able, making such a person too, or not?

  13. I think it's beautiful, very fascinating and dreamy! I love the colours and what a breautiful sky! I wish you a nice week and thank you for your comment!

  14. You must see these and maybe you will be inspired to build your driftwood man. Beautiful

  15. Renilde I can count the goosebumps this gives me on my arms and everywhere!!! I wish this were a storybook completely illustrated by you. This is magic to me...this painting...what it evokes in my own imagination. Driftwood Man has such a regal stance. Even though one can see through him -- to the ocean beyond, where he came from, he is not scary. Just regal. Gosh this is awesome. My hat is off to you, art friend!! Hugs, Norma, xo

  16. I wonder what it would be like to meet a drift wood man on the beach...and I agree with Annamaria you are so ripe for a book of stories!!

  17. your drift wood man is so gorgeous. very eye catching :)

  18. Great match between the story and image! Bravo Renilde!
    And thanks for sharing.

    Have a nice week****

  19. Your work is amazing!

    I love the little girl with driftwood man I can feel the wind whistling behind them and the sound of the waves beautiful!!!!
