BUT in the meantime, I get to make stuff.
|Unfinished paintings of tangled up bunting on the grass. Hope to do more of these.|
|Garden lantern based on some Spanish ones I saw.|
Demonstrating is a great motivator. It pushes me out of my comfort zone and makes me try new things.
like skull sculptures, (who'd have thunk?)
or landscape painting
|Mine is a bit Reg Mombasa- ish|
with my sons (how special is that?)
|His is a bit more lyrical and, dare I say it- feminine!|
|It really had to go.|
It seems I am aways conscious of making memory points for them to have in case I can't remind them in person. After I impulsively indulged in a therapeutic end of term pedi the other day, the girls asked for a $5 manicure each. At four and ten years old, I would once have thought they were too young or it was silly. These days I go for the memory making option. Hopefully we'll all sit around and reminisce about their first manicure when I'm ninety!
