Illustration Friday 'Fleeting'


My life feels like it is divided into 3 major parts. The first being my life growing up in Wales, the second when I emmigrated to Australia at 15 and the third when I started a family of my own. I guess that I feel like my childhood ended when I emmigrated and I associate my childhood with growing up in Wales and spending it with my family and friends over there. I wish that I had savoured my childhood while I had the chance as I'm sure most of us do. Also rain is very fleeting for me at the moment as I'm living in Australia and we have been in a dreadful drought for the past 5 years at least. Coming from wet windy wales, I didn't realise just how much I would miss the rain and everything that it brings with it. It's very brown over here compared to where I grew up and I do miss it. So the picture I have drawn represents me as a young girl soaking up the rain.

Hi Nicola! thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment. I am sorry for the dry season Australia is experiencing, I was just reading all about it in National Geographic. It would be such a wonderful blessing if the weather patterns would turn around.
I really like your drawing, and I think like you, wish I had savored childhood a bit more...maybe we all do!
