Bean came to me one morning and said 'Mama, I am going to catch a mermaid'
'Oh' I said.
'How do you do that?' I asked.
'Well' she said, 'First you get your fishing line, tie something to it...
And then you through it in the water. Then you catch a mermaid'
'Thats a very cool way to catch a mermaid Bean'
And so this painting was born.
My kids are my greatest source of inspiration.
Some days it is so, so hard to hear them, through the noise, the tantrums, the tears, (like the easter hang over from hell we had this week!),
And then there are moments of sheer joy + clarity which make these moments seem so insignificant, and it is in these moments that I find the best stories + inspiring ideas.
This painting will remind me on those very hard days to listen harder.
Have you thought about where in your life you should listen harder? I would love to know what you heard.
Next week I will be starting a spotlight series featuring the artists who join me in the Easter Tag swap, so stay tuned to see some of the amazing tags that were created for this swap.
By the way did you see that this months give away is now open for entries?
