Well Being, my Sanity hobby

Well Being, my Sanity hobby

Only a day left of the Easter Holidays and while I absolutely love my kids to bits the work they generate feels inhuman, I’m sure there is plenty of you nodding your head to this in agreement, if not please send me your tips for surviving school holidays 🙂  So in the world of Well Being I’ve noticed a trend that us mums just don’t have the time, support or funds during the holidays for some Me Time, totally understandable and during these periods it gives me time to paint which is my second love.  I thought I’d share with you my latest paintings, inspired by a trip many years ago to the Harry Potter Studios near Watford (best day out we’ve had for years) I saw the pre-work the art sketches for various characters, one really stood out to me and that was a computer generated image of a dementor so the black painting is the first attempt and the second painting was me trying to paint the negative of the first.  Putting them side by side I now want to refer to them as Mr & Mrs.  I hope you enjoy.  Next I’m attempting a large canvas of a white peacock, wish me luck!
