I've been playing with ink lately, and had a few nice results.
The theme was crescent shapes(boats, nests) and waves(hillsides, trees).
I love playing with the ink in an organic way, and allowing it space to say something.
Obviously I'm still working out the best paper. Some worked better than others, and some buckled more than others. Looks like the Bockingford is the best.
I hope you like what these had to say. They make me feel restful inside.
Always something to notice and value with my restless spirit.
I will be doing more! I feel I've found another voice to express with.
Bushy's response to that was "Yes, because you needed another one! "
Poor long suffering guy!
In my last post I alluded to some health issues in the family.
Mr Actor has been extremely sick with a streptoccal infection which attacked his kidneys causing all sorts of reactions in his body, and blowing up his OCD. So now we are reintroducing him to school. In order to do that I am sitting in the car park for the three hours he is managing at the moment. And he can come to me if he needs support.
In order to make this pleasant for me I'm bringing our campervan Brumhilda...yes all fixed again after the engine blowup in this post...so I can have a table to write and eat at and loungeroom to knit in. Very pleasant.
Mr Actor joins me for morning tea :-) Yesterday was his second day, and he did really well after a rocky day the day before.
I put this out there to help normalise and reduce the stigma on mental illness. It's just another illness, and not our fault or something contagious. But it is interrupting our lives for a while. I say that if he can learn these lessons at 10 he will be way ahead of the pack. Learning to challenge your own thought processes and reintroducing more healthy ones is one of the hardest things he will ever do.
Poor kid. And I am absolutely privileged to support him through it!
Some selfies and glamour camping pics in Brumhilda.
Til next time, keep on creating!
