We’re mourning for our dear dog Tony (grey Scottish Terrier Mix, 2000?-20.10.2014).

4 Years, 5 months and 9 days full of fun, worries, pride and small adventures…

I can’t describe how much I loved this funny, sweet, peculiar dog! He enjoyed life and made us very happy.

In Memory Of Tony 1 by rieke-b

We will always miss him terribly. Many tears were cried already and many more will follow. You simply can’t prepare yourself for a pain like this… I keep feeling like I just touched his fur a moment ago…

Talking about him for many hours, going for long walks, caring for our other two pets, looking at photos and videos, drinking lots of tea and lighting candles already helped us to comfort our hearts and slowly get used to a new daily life.


I’d like to say a big Thank You to everybody who looked at my pictures of Tony and thought he was cute. :heart:


Sad greetings,





In Gedenken an Tony.


Wir trauern um unseren lieben alten Hund (grauer Scottish-Terrier- Mischling, 2000?-20.10.2014).

4 Jahre, 5 Monate und 9 Tage voller Spaß, Sorgen, Stolz und kleiner Abenteuer…

Ich kann keine passenden Worte finden, um zu beschreiben, wie sehr ich diesen lustigen, lieben, seltsamen Hund geliebt habe! Er hat das Leben genossen und uns sehr glücklich gemacht.


Wir werden ihn immer schrecklich vermissen. Viele Tränen sind schon geflossen und viele mehr werden folgen. Man kann sich einfach auf einen solchen Schmerz nicht vorbereiten… Ich denke immer noch, ich hätte ihn gerade erst noch gestreichelt…

Viele Stunden lang über ihn reden, lange Spaziergänge machen, uns um unsere anderen beiden Haustiere kümmern, alte Fotos und Videos anschauen, viel Tee trinken und Kerzen anzünden hat uns schon geholfen, unsere Herzen zu beruhigen und uns langsam an einen neuen Alltag zu gewöhnen.

 Ich möchte allen Leuten herzlich danken, die meine Bilder von Tony angeschaut haben und ihn süß fanden. :heart:


Mit traurigen Grüßen,

Knowledge follows the will to change...

Hi! I'm Rieke, a traditional artist from Germany who grew up drawing comics and cartoons, animals and nature and simply loves to draw and paint. I’m mainly self-taught, but learned how to use acrylic paints at a College of Further Education.

I'm one half of a creative team of sisters who work together closely, so I'm glad to have a spare brain, pair of eyes and hands roaming the house. :D
My older sis, Jelka :iconjerseydays: , creates gorgeous one-of-a-kind art dolls and I'm happy and proud when I can paint their faces and body parts.

Jelka is also a great author and comic artist and helped me to improve most of the artworks you can see in my gallery.
My family and pets, telling stories, humour, learning about animals and the search for chemical-free insight keep me together. :D

I can't tell you about all my projects and ideas because I prefer to show finished works than talking too much. My art tells a lot about me and my personality, anyway. ;)

Interests: caring for my pets (dog & cat), learning about nature and animals, traditional art, music, yummy organic vegan food
Favourite musicians: The Beatles & Paul McCartney's solo works, Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, Brian Setzer & Stray Cats, Tori Amos, Mari Boine, Sonny Landreth, Neil Innes & The Rutles, Sting, Rory Gallagher
Favourite authors: Terry Pratchett, Cesar Millan, Scott McCloud
Favourite artists: Don Rosa, Mort Drucker, Tome & Janry, Rien Poortvliet, Paul Kidby, André Franquin
Favourite words: Brot (bread), FWOOMP, Phalacrocorax carbo (Great Cormorant), Pi-pa-po, GLOOING :D

Traditional art commissions: Finally made a price list, yay! See my DA journal here:…

:llama: NO LLAMAS, please!! I don't collect them and I feel guilty when I can't return them.
