So I’ve been itching to give watercolours a go for literally years and just never got around to it until just the other day…
I wanted to do a little illustration for my baby shower invites, and it felt like the perfect excuse to buy a mini set of paints and give it a go… Uh! I LOVE working with them! I think there shall be more watercolour illustrations in the future…
They may just be the perfect medium to combine with a little baby too as the paint dries so well and can be returned to easily too in the little pockets of free time I hope to discover in my days.
I’d like to do more illustration work in general and so maybe maybe baby will get me into gear…
Happy Tuesday Visionaries!

Mom bought me flowers for Mother’s Day.
I love you mom.
There are poems
that are never written,
that simply move across
on a still day:
slowly the first word
the last letters dissolve
on the tongue,
and what is left
is the pure blue
of insight, without cloud

“Stuff you should do before you’re 35. Move. Live a dream. Fail miserably. Dream bigger. Get your heart broken. Create your reason.”

That space between break and create…
interesting… I don’t see why it has to be till 35, but I 100% love the phrase ‘CREATE YOUR REASON’ I think that shall become one of my new mantras… hmmm…

Stumbled upon a ‘rainbow eucalyptus’ today. They’re completely natural and as ever with the natural realm… startling & amazing!
As the bark peels off at different rates & times, so different colours are seen and the rainbow effect is formed. “Nature’s brushstrokes” as somebody stated so beautifully… I can’t believe it’s really real…
And then one day…
beneath the soft white flowering gums came
a little hedgehog. To stand
& marvel at
the pretty snowflake blooms…
So the other day I had the literal surprise and intrinsically exciting pleasure of looking up and noticing that a tree near where I was, was a kind of flowering gum (the tree I’m painting in the baby’s room) and it was blooming too!!! (hehe okay, so that’s as exciting as my life is at the moment ;)
This tree’s blooms were tiny little delicate bursts and I was captivated for a good half hour beneath it, my phone pointed towards all its angles…
The painting continues, as does the baby purchasing (pram, chair, bath etc.) it’s getting close!!! Painting a hedgehog on the wall right now… and wishing I could do it lying on my belly - ah the cruel irony of wishing that with a bub inside…
