patience...





rummaging around my plans chest i stumbled upon these 2 small watercolours which 
i painted way back in 1998 when i worked solely as an illustrator/artist. 
it was in this year that my husband left me for a friend of mine. 
(actually the most generous thing any friend has ever done for me 
before or since. seriously). our son, storm, was 2 at the time and i remember 
clearly sitting on the stairs together, crying, as his dad shut the 
door behind himself, and on us. i needed to earn more money and quick, 
and so turned my fleamarket hobby into a business which slowly but 
surely encroached into creative time until it blocked me from 
continuing my art practice. today change is in the air. soon i will only 
sell vintage lovelies online and get back to what i should have been doing 
since dot. drawing, painting, collaging, sculpting, assembling, monoprinting; 
playing with an intelligent eye...

And your follow up comment just made me laugh out loud.

You are more amazing to me too! To paraphrase what someone said when my friend faced a similar situation - you didn't deserve what happened and he didn't deserve you! I like these too, good to see you may be getting back to your talents :)
