Lies!

“I’m NOT tired Mummy!”

and then –

I drew this this afternoon – I am so close to finishing two drawings. They have been quite technically challenging so I guess I procrastinated with this one. It’s nice to be a bit looser and experiment with the softer back ground.

Another one to add to ‘drawings of my daughter sleeping and/ or sick.’

Painting and pelvic floor exercises

It’s the first day of school holidays and I was really excited about it because it means lazy mornings and pj days and spending time with kid in the studio. It means maybe we will go to a reserve and swoon over animals, it means special treats and probably some time out.

Today we went for a long walk and borrowed books and made an easter egg decoration for daddy. She shared toys with another kid and then we came home for sandwiches and painting.

We shared mummy’s easel:

And then I sat at my desk and did a little painting of a skull, and my pelvic floor exercises – because I am a multi-tasking genius.

Then I made dinner and spilt bread crumbs all over myself and into my slippers. I heard the post person go past and he had squeaky wheels.. He totally needs to oil those wheels.

I also found this, this is a detail, a portrait of the most glorious Angie Hart. I am going to finish it because I think it is so beautiful.

I also have the pieces for another large drawing to begin soon, painting is just a lovely holiday right now.
