☆ ESCAPE [friday art]

Just a quick on tonight - the Mac Clan are going to Sydney for the weekend, we are catching a bus + the train, which the girls will love, but it requires a bit of strategic packing and planning - which is slightly stressful.

I am slightly concerned about entertaining Bug + Bean, and the wee Beastie has be so unsettled since her four month needles (It was worse for me I think!) Having Mr Mac with us will definitely help, but it does mean that we will have to be on the top of our game which is slightly daunting considering how tired we both are.

I will let you know how we go but I really wanted to share this new painting with you. (and anything to take a break from packing!!)


I hope you all have a great weekend - I will be a bit late visiting everyone this week, but can't wait to see all the gorgeous art out there!

I am off to try an figure out what art stuff I want to take versus, what in reality I will use!

I would love to know your absolute must take art supplies - I figure I won't need the paints or markers this weekend, but definitely a sketchbook + pencil. The girls + I want to do some sketching at the aquarium.

By the way have you had a chance to enter this months give away? It is free to enter + so easy to do so.

Have a great weekend. I will be back Tuesday with another Featured Artist (and if you want to be featured quick! Hop to it!)

  7. She reminds me of Cinderella - I kept looking for the glass slipper.
    Gorgeous work!

  8. Escape is beautiful, she reminds me of Cinderella. Hope everything goes well on your trip! My must-take art supplies are sketchbook, pencil, eraser and markers ....

  9. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I'm sure it will require military precision to plan a weekend away with 3 little ones!! This painting is gorgeous - I love the way you've shown the movement with her necklace swinging out to the side like that!

  10. She's lovely Kirsten, I love her dress and the staircase is beautiful. Have fun! HPPF!

  11. Love her dress, and the look in her eyes. Happy PPF

  12. What a lovely illustration! So dreamy, and I really like the contrast between her dress color and the silvery blue palette.

    Whenever I'm traveling or just want to bring some art supplies in case inspiration comes, I always bring a small sketchbook, illustration pens, and color pencils in a pencil case. My other must-bring supply: music!

  13. I drew a similar idea a long time ago yours is beautiful

  14. Lovely painting, she looks like she could be in a fairy tale:) Have a great trip HPPF

  15. She looks gorgeous!!!! I would like to escape from the little family sometimes... Wouldn't you? Have a great weekend!!!

  16. So beautiful, she has a perplexed look on her face....seems you asked her to come along to babysit but she has politely declined!! She too feel it might be daunting!! Have fun, I'm sure the girls will be a hit on the train!! Take a deck of cards and teach them a memory game.... turn all the card over on a table and make them turn three and try to match them.... if they get a match they play again...until all the cards are gone!! Good luck!

    Hugs Giggles

  17. Fabulous! Have a great trip! <3

  18. I hope your time away erases the stress of getting ready to go away. Just beautiful painting. HPPF

  19. I like a sharpie marker for sketching--eliminates the whole concept of a mistake...
