My new delicious whirlwind with paint!
I present to You.... Madame Butterfly! My latest Painting! And a very girly pretty one at that! I had a great time creating her! Originally she was just a black and white illustration ( and the logo for my business), but I decided she needed a splash of colour to bring her to life! So here she is, she will be available as a print soon in the Gallery too!
I've been thinking about the feature article I did on Ashley G in the Creative Cabinet in Madame Butterfly. She says she believes that what You are most happiest doing during Your childhood is what You will be most happiest doing for the rest of Your life! I think that statement has come true for me in many ways! When I was little I loved to draw and paint! I loved sending things in the mail! I loved creating my own magazines! I loved creating beautiful rooms on paper by cutting and pasting things and furniture from magazines and catalogues ( my mum would draw me a big empty room to fill!) I loved to read and make things!I loved to make my own greeting cards! I loved to play in my Nan's sewing room and sew and sort all her buttons! I loved to visit art galleries and look at what others had created!
Amazingly I am still doing all of these things right now, in my life and business in some way! And I am Happy!
