|Marigold doesn't use cleaning fluids to clean her house, only magic.|
So it has been a busy week for me. The kids have been on 1/2 term holiday, builders have been in our flat making our home fit for a royal family and to add to the chaos my drive at making a living with my art is still going full steam ahead. Although, I have to admit that every now and again I do think- what is the point? I'm lacking in so much space for my creations and my full time job as mother is inhibiting yet at the same time a constant pool of ideas which leaves me with no choice but to reach for my camera or sketch book. It would be so easy close the lid of my watercolours and call it a day but with that the lights in my world would be turned off.
I'm sure my dearest parents who have very kindly taken us in whilst our renovations take place along with my husband and kids would be relieved to not see me with my head stuck in a sketch book.
All I can ask from all of my family is to please have patience whilst this work is taking place. Maybe sometime in the future my art will finally pay some bills and that I will manage to finish the book that I have been gestating all this time. I am so very grateful to them all and look forward to hopefully one day make everyone proud.
So it is with Mother's in mind that I submit this weeks IF topic- Fluid. This Illustration is a re-work of a character that I designed called Marigold. The first designs I ever did of this magical cleaning fairy were done back in 2010 using marker pens. I have now brought Marigold into 2012 using watercolours. I hope you all enjoy.
Once again Thank you for taking the time to stop by and any comments left are truly appreciated.
Love and Art to you all
