Mixed Media Monday - Play


This piece seemed to fit the theme for Mixed Media Monday. This character is based on my wonderful cousin Clare! It doesn't matter how old we are I'll always see her as the 17 year old, who used to have her own distinct style, and would wear tie dyed shorts with her doc martins, she was obsessed with the 60's especially The Beatles and John Lennon and would play their records over and over, she introduced me to that wonderful music. I always wanted to be like her but somehow when I wore the tie dyed pants and doc martins I just looked ridiculous heheh. Nowadays Clarey is a very talented hand bag designer and Mother to a 1 year old daughter and 4 year old step son. Lucky for me she is just living in the same town and emigrated like myself to Australia!!! Hooray!!!

It's like looking in a mirror babes! I feel honoured that you drew me and with such lovely eye lashes too. I LOVED the 90's and being different and cool BUT most of all I loved having a little side kick who would hang on my everyword and who i tried to teach to be cool as well... cos it doesn't happen now does it? I look to you for inspiration ;) Loves you

Nicola, this is a gorgeous, colorful piece. I really enjoyed hearing about your cousin. Looks like her arty ways as a youthful person has paid off dividends as an adult.
