Illustration Friday - Impatience


When saw the word for this week I straight away thought about my own impatience. My mum and step dad are away in Europe at the moment and are half way through a 10 week trip. I'm really happy and excited for them that they get to spend some time with my brother and his family as well as catch up with lots of family and friends in Wales and see lots of new places too. But on a selfish note, I can't stand them being away. I'm extremely close to my mum and like to say that I feel the same way about my once evil step father (lots of teen angst on my part there but that's a different story). Nowadays they are two of my closest friends and I miss them alot when they go away. Also as soon as they left for this trip life here seemed to become very stressful, (but that's a whole other story too). I can't wait for them to come home and feel like I'm watching the clock and the calendar very closely and time is dragging. I'm becoming very impatient. Only about 5 weeks to go though so that's good. For some reason I was very inspired by Alice in Wonderland when I thought about being impatient with time and it made me think about when she falls down the rabbit hole. Anyway hope you like.

Alice in Wonderland popped into my mind as soon as I clicked on to your image :) Lovely job and so wonderful that you have such a deep and loving bond with your mom! p.s. i use liquitex acrylics for 30 plus years.

I would miss my parents terribly if they went away too.

A wonderful take on the IF topic! I hope the next five weeks go more quickly for you.

Hi Nicola!
I remember last year, my parents went away for 3 weeks and I felt so lost at home without them!! So i kinda know how you're feeling. Ten weeks is a long time but they'll be back before you know it:-)
I love this piece, especially the expressions on the faces. I love that you've got lots of different elements in it and you've put them together- great work as always!
