Girl and Bear
















Thank you Jane for inspiring the layout...I think its nice to see them clustered together...but they are nice on their own as well...like your own work xxx
I like my bed spread in the background...its girly and dreamy ^------^

Im feeling warm and fuzzy looking at these...its coming back, I dare say...and I think this may develop into a much more 'worked' body of drawings/painting/sculptures/films etc...oooo so excited!!!

'It will be ok' is defo my favorite of these...the bear is beautiful, I wish he would come to life and keep me company.

I tried, with 'Hide and Seek' to put them into a place...set them somewhere...but when I looked at it again, i realized that I actually didn't like it. And I can say that now...I can say 'I like things floating on the page....I like the scale being totally off...I like how naive and simple they are...I like them'
I can breathe again...I don't have to justify, or explain or stand up for them...because they are just for me and if someone else likes them...great...but right now, that isn't my concern. Im just enjoying drawing, for the first time in YEARS...because there is no pressure...and no one is looking over my shoulder, asking what Im at, or, telling me that what Im doing is rubbish...
Right now, it doesn't matter if they are rubbish.
I love them
They make me happy...

deep breath.......

I feel like Im getting my strength back
It feels good....
So so good......
