☆ Captain of Destiny [a new painting]

After a bit of an up + down week, a sick Mr Mac, a busy schedule + some very tired girls (myself included), I managed to grab some serious studio time yesterday. 

I love Thursdays! Thursdays are my day. The two big girls are at school so I only have the wee beastie to demand my time. She is only nine weeks old, so I am pretty much free to do anything I want on this day. 


I jokingly said to some one, (when I waxing on about how much I love Thursdays + all the amazing things I could do), that if I really wanted to I could have champagne for breakfast.

She said to me, "No you couldn't!" 

"Why not?" I asked

"Because, well, you can't. And anyway you are feeding the beastie, so you can't drink"

And it made me sad that a. she missed the point, and b. if I really wanted champagne for breakfast there are so many other options....

But back to how much I love Thursdays, after a slightly trying week + some moments of being serously stuck in the studio, I woke up with this idea in my head.

She is the Captain of her Destiny, she can steer her ship where she wants to, when ever she wants to.

And so am I.

I am the captain of my own destiny + if I really want to I can have champagne for breakfast.
