run away ...

so much going on in my life and my thoughts at the moment i'm going to explode ... it's time for me to go on that holiday where artists go ... phones off, good expresso, heaps of charcoal, expensive paper ... i'm packed and ready to go ...

Now for some, this may not be such a big deal, but for me, it is. To have an artwork in an exhibition is a dream come true ... not for me - but for my two little boys - it teaches them about hope, trust and belief ... that even through trials in life, we can eventually pull through - to hear my nine year old say, "Mum i'm so proud of you" as soon as he turned the corner and saw my artwork hanging up was priceless ... a moment i will never forget.
