This little paper box was for today’s Lilac Grey #colour_collective on twitter.
It pushed me out of my colour comfort zone – I don’t often use purply colours, but I loved using this grey today.
This was going to be 3 dogs walking in a park, until a scribbly pink tree I’d done for something else fluttered out of a bag I was emptying…and I put the 3 dogs aside and used this one.
And thought I’d quite like to be sitting reading under pink blossom.
There’s some wonderful work for #colour_collective by so many artists on twitter tonight – the colour was Limpet Blue and as I’d woken up wanting to draw an ice cream van it seemed to fit in nicely.
I finished this today; and when I watched my kids trying to whoosh down our lane on a tiny skateboard I wished I could make them a real go-kart.
The Wolf from my previous post is going on a Night Time Scooting Expedition…
I just can’t convince any of these creatures to get back into their boxes…
We’ve been dreaming of Spring…but then today there was a brief and beautiful flurry of snow, and Proper Winter Things seemed a possibility instead of just a memory.
The snow lasted long enough to soak me on my way back from town, but the kids only caught a glimpse of it from their school assembly.
Shouldn’t schools fling open their doors with glee and bundle coats and hats onto one and all when it snows for the first time in years? My 6 year old can’t remember ever seeing snow.
On inclement February days, stoats usually stay inside and listen to opera.
This week I’ve been scurrying back and forth delivering Asterix books, medicine and cuddles to my boy with earache. (Note: this is my Imaginary House. My real house is very, very messy).
