Echte liefde zit in de kleine dingen. Dat laat kunstenares Amanda Oleander op prachtige wijze zien in haar illustraties over de liefde.
Liefde zit vooral in het gewone, en niet in het bijzondere. Als je toch een partij honger hebt, maar hem het eerste hapje gunt. Wanneer hij als in blok in slaapt valt en jij nog een tijdje naar hem blijft kijken. Vol trots. Liefde zit hem niet in groots en meeslepend met elkaar leven. Liefde is klein, puur en vooral liefhebbend. En dat laat Amanda op onovertroffen wijze zien met haar illustraties over de liefde. Op Instagram maakt ze hier furore mee. En dat snappen we maar al te goed.

Drawing 86/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. When you love your partner so much their toes, feet, hands, ears, nose, hairy legs, and pretty much everything is the cutest thing you've ever laid your eyes on even if it's pretty average to the rest of the world. // Speaking of hairy legs, I'm live streaming my laser hair removal tomorrow on Periscope if you'd like to tune in again 🤗 // and.. I posted a time lapse video of this drawing on my Instagram Story. Full videos will be uploaded to my YouTube page. ✒️🎨 ///Link in bio for prints and originals ///
Echte liefde is als hij niet afknapt op je grijze haren, maar je helpt om ze te laten verdwijnen. Of als hij je niet wakker wil maken, terwijl je ondertussen het hele bed hebt geconfisceerd. Hij besluit met een randje van het bed genoegen te nemen.
Drawing 56/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. When you see a white hair and it reminds you how old you're getting and all of the things you wanted to have accomplished by this age. So you get your partner to come help cut them out or you pull them out yourself because.. who needs that rude reminder? ✂️✂️✂️– So after this post I've been getting messages about how I should be proud of what I have achieved at this age, and that I'm not that old..etc. I know I'm not that old, thirties are great years and I'm looking forward to them. And I am really happy about how far I am in my career, but as a women who wants multiple kids and wants to tour the world and publish books and work an a ton of projects it gets a little messy at this age since the older I get the closer I am to my internal ticking clock of having children. I'm not ready for them but I do want them in the future and before them there's a lot I want to do, many places I want to go and things I want to accomplish. My mom got married at 23 and had me at 24. She always gave me this piece of advice: "Do what you love before you have kids, travel, spend alone time with your partner don't rush into it." I take that advice to heart and have followed it but I think it's normal to feel that pressure when I am reminded of my age. ✨
Drawing 55/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. When she/he takes up the whole bed. I think I figured out why one person in the relationship is always on the edge. It's because the other person is probably the colder one and keeps cuddling up for body heat. Then the other person gets too hot, keeps scooting over until he/she ends up on the edge. 😅

Amanda zegt over haar illustraties: ‘Ik ben geboeid door de manier waarop mensen zich gedragen achter gesloten deuren’s. ‘Intieme momenten die we nooit te zien krijgen. Dat zijn momenten die moeilijk kunnen worden beschreven, en daarom teken ik ze.’
Drawing 38/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. This drawing is inspired by my good friend, @gracesmithtv and @bernardofeitosa. I caught up with her yesterday and when I asked her how everything is going after giving birth to their first child, Patrick, I had to turn it into a drawing. I tried to show the messy room full of love, help, sleepiness and her multitasking like a #superwomen.
Drawing 77/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. When you plan on watching a show or movie together and you fall asleep immediately. 🤦🏻♀️ // This is inspired by last weekend when @joeyrudman and I said we were going to binge @strangerthingstv and I fell asleep after the second episode. He ended up binging until episode 5 and then rewatched them with me the next night. 😊🙈
Drawing 64/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. This is inspired by a night @joeyrudman and I drove up a canyon in Malibu at 11 pm to watch a meteor shower laying on top of his car. It was a really magical night. We were completely sober but felt like we were on something, it was something I have never experienced before. Pure magic✨ // The best moments are usually tucked away in our memories. I draw them because I don't have a photo but I want to look at an image that will take me back to these beautiful moments that weren't recorded.
