ONE more sleep!!!

I don't have any paintings to post today so I thought I would post a pic of Ben's eye, I really love this image. I would die for some of those impossibly long lashes and I just love the soft colour of his eyes, a kind of slate colour. If you look closely you can see our kitchen bench and windows just to the left of his pupil. I said to him the other day, "You have beautiful eyes" and he said "I know".

I have been going through a few of my picture books, I love kids picture books and have a whole stack of them... anyway I have left three of them on my desk as inspiration for when I come back to mix in with thoughts I might get while I am away. I can feel something brewing in my brain, an idea is developing and I don't want to scare it away. So I thought coming home to a clean art table with a few of my favourite inspirational things waiting for my return might get me back into the flow of things.

By the end of today I think we will have most things sorted for our trip... when Ben woke this morning he said to me "is it today mummy" I said "one more sleep"... a big smile spread across his face and he was silent for a while. I think he can comprehend the significance of one more sleep as apposed to 9 more sleeps.

Thanks to everyone for their well wishes for our trip and I will be back soon with lots of pics and stories.

Godspeed to me... I like the word Godspeed, I think if someone wishes you Godspeed, it must be a very important journey indeed.
