hope floats...

(hope floats)

I did a painting a while ago with a mother and child... well I had a few extra faces left over and I had a play with them last night, this is what I have come up with. When I started I kind of imagined her as being bird like with her little wings instead of arms, but I don't think she looks very aerodynamic without an arm to balance her? I am now thinking if people could fly they would need their arms (like superman). I might do a little series of these this week as I am feeling hopeful at the moment.

For any people out there that are close enough and are interested in dropping by the Ormlie Lodge Design Market, it will be on Sunday 29th 10am - 3pm, 17 Omarunui rd Taradale (next to the Napier golf Club). Will be good to see you there...

Hi Katherine,

I love your new painting (and the others) and I think you're right we would need our arms to fly. It's been over 6 months now since I stumbled onto your blog and I thought it was about time I told you how much I enjoy dropping in occasionally and seeing what you've been up to. Hello from across the ditch.
