☆ Space [illustration friday]

Illustration Friday's prompt was an inspirational one for me. It was a reminder.

A reminder from a very simple message that my dreams are in reach if only I have the courage to keep reaching. A reminder for all you guys too.

Always Reach For Your Stars. Always.

Have a great week

☆ Secret [illustration friday]

When I was a teenager, I was the keeper of secrets, and I had one friend in particular, who would share with me her deepest secrets. Her secrets were not the typical teenage 'I have a crush on johnny' secrets, hers were horrific, heart wrenching, soul destroying secrets.

At sixteen I didn't know. I didn't know how to do anything but listen and be supportive, but I also didn't know how to let her secrets go so they weren't killing me. 

Perhaps if I had know that art could be my outlet, that exercise would relieve the burden, that hugs from little girls would lift your heart, I might have processed her secrets better, maybe I might have been a better friend. 

But now I have a secret, a big one, one I can't share just yet, but one I am excited and nervous about. And now that the house of sickness is on the mend (finally) I can look forward to getting back in the studio again!

Hope your having a great week

☆ The house of sickness + a wee break

Hey everyone.

What a start to winter we have had here! We have been so sick. My girls and I are now down with some flu. And while I am hoping we will recover very quickly, between two sick girls, a sick mama and a husband, who is probably going to contract something of ours, I think that instead of worrying about writing my blog posts, or facebook updates, or even that I haven't painted in the last week, I am going to take a wee break.

I am hoping it won't be longer than one or two weeks, but I just want to concentrate on getting us all better, because at the moment, I feel like shit.

See you on the flip side
