This one for Miss 7, is about 80% there, (Miss 5’s is done). They get back from a week away tomorrow, and I will have both paintings ready for them…cant wait to see their faces! I think I will be more excited than they will be.
I wanted to, after all this time paint something for my children. (been RATHER slak, painting my heart out for me me me me oh, and …me)…. but nothing for my family oops!
I have two full on vibrant feisty lil Goddess’s, Miss 5 & Miss 7, chalk n cheese, in almost every way except their determination, their strength, their sheer will.
Miss 5, who likes to go by the name “Rainbow’, (after I had asked her “if mum painted you a picture, what sort of things would you like in it?”_…. after a nano seconds hesitation she announced “A rainbow (SHOCK HORROR) and a heart please mum”.
OOOOOKAY, done. Quite happy to spend a day doing something non adult like, get in touch with the ‘inner kid’ so to speak, felt great!
A day later and Im this far, I feel like its almost done, few little tweaks here in there, but hmmmmmm, yip. 🙂
Next up, is for Miss 7,…there will be WW3 if they are really totally different, because I can guarantee they will both want the same one, I can hear it now, “I want the heart one!” “I like those colours better!” grrrrrr,… so I’m still having a heart and a rainbow, and same colours, lots of twirls & swirls, …….but….
here’s the start of it: obviously a work in progress….
will keep you posted, if its as quick as the last one, shouldn’t take long at all.
