bertie plays the blues

The characters in the books of Alexander McCall Smith often inspire my etegami, and one of my eternal favorites is little Bertie. He is such a treasure!!

Here are more AMS-inspired etegami. It seems that the oldest goes back to 2009.  How time flies!


  1. Wonderful as always! The *Olfactory Tapestry* and *Brother Fox* are my favourites...the former because after almost 10 days with a flu that deprived me of taste and smell, this morning, I could smell the aroma of coffee....what a joy! The latter, because I am such a lover of Foxes and anything Fox-Related!

    Happy, Healthy Christmas to you and yours! May 2014 bring health, joy and more Art!

    Hugs from SF,

  2. I'm with Robin, they are also my favourites! Interesting details in both of these, but the fox etegami with the crisp edged houses and bleeding inky hills is especially wonderful.

  3. I always enjoy Alexander mcCall Smith's books and your etegami are wonderful. I wonder if I've drunk that specific type of Malawian Lost Tea, I remember enjoying the tea when I lived in Malawi!

    Seasons greetings!

  4. Happy Christmas, Debbie! I also love this author. I really like your cards, especially "verbs" and the last one with the fox (so true about living in the world!). Sending you hugs!
