About a week ago, little Donaghy joined his brother Lemon to feast on seeds made of stars and cuddle up in bedding made of clouds. I will miss my furry little friends and so, in their memory I've painted them travelling to their new home.
A few weeks ago I set up shop in my kitchen, which is the sunniest room in the house and started working on a few ideas that I've had floating around in my head.
I really love having the time to paint again, even if it's only for a few minutes here and there. Having a 5 month old on your lap adds a fun little twist to the whole creative process.
A new year is upon us filled with endless possibilities, and yet I can't help but feel a little sad that 2010 is over. With the birth of my daughter, It was such a wonderful and memorable year that it is going to be hard to top.
Now that there is a new baby in the house, my toxic oil paints are all packed up for the winter and my time has been dedicated solely to her. I am already looking forward to this spring, when I can pull my oils out of hibernation and set up shop in my favorite outdoor studio, my backyard.
I'd like to say goodbye 2010, you were a most fantastic year and hello 2011, I can't wait to see what you have in store.
