School Holidays & Thinking of Prints

 School holidays have almost come to an end, which means when Monday comes all three children and my husband go back to school. My husband is the principal of the local Secondary school and my children go to the local primary school, so school holidays mean everyone is home. It means that we get to have family time each holidays without anyone missing out and I love that. In saying that..... Woo Hoo! Naaaaaaaaa, actually these holidays have been great. I am just looking forward to getting back to work (artwork that is, of course) =D.

 This first image is very special to me because it was created in conjunction with my 9 year old daughter, Louise. I had originally drawn half of the image up and was dissatisfied with it so I put it aside, not knowing if I would ever finish it off. Louise asked me if she could work on it. Once she had finished working on it and showed me, I immediately felt inspired to complete it. I told her due to her contribution that if I sold it that she could have the money. And guess sold. She is very happy indeed and I am one proud Mum.

'Coffee Gratitude' 

This image below came about from one of this years Lifebook classes by Tamara Laporte over at Willowing.ning. Thanks Tam. Tam's classes are always inspiring.

'Home is where Bunny is'
 Both originals have sold.
I'm planning on putting more art prints in my Etsy store, so if you have a favorite please let me know. I'd be grateful.
