I am tired. Physically tired, yes. But also mentally. I want to curl up and sleep, far away from the noise and bustle of this busy, busy world. I want to forget my problems. And other people's problems too, which always weigh on my mind too much. To stop worrying about things that will never change. I want to cocoon myself in quiet and solitude, and make small things of beauty and large things that take time, and not speak...and sleep and sleep some more. Not forever. For a little while. But I'm a mother, a wife, a friend. I have people who need me. How can I find the balance?
Art imitates life. Nasturtium leaf pendant.
Just a pyrographic doodle...because the disk cracked when I put the second hole in it, so it became a practice piece and I could just play.
My first painting as a 'professional' artist...and my mantra!
The kettle is on, please do come in, up the winding stair and if you're tall, you might have to duck at the top to avoid the ridge beam! Feel free to browse amongst my bits and bobs, and apologies if you have to blow dust off a few things! But please remember, the written musings and painted pictures here (unless otherwise credited) are my work and therefore copyright.
To my fellow wanderers and footloose followers-an update!
If you like what you see and read in this little corner of the giant attic in the sky that is the world wide web, please consider 'following' my progress as I wander along, getting distracted by butterflies and interesting cloud shapes as I go.
