Illustration Friday Cocoon, Sunday Sketch and Mixed Media Monday 'Mothers'
UPDATE: Well it seems that this piece also fits this weeks Mixed Media Monday challenge hurrah! I have to say this is currently one of my favourite pieces and I really enjoyed making it!
Hi everyone, well this weekend I combined the two challenges as I had already done the sketch for this painting. Mothers day is next weekend over here and I wanted to do something to celebrate this occasion. This year I have already seen a family member and a friend welcome a new baby to their home. I have another friend who is due later in the year as well as another family member expecting his first. It's all go go go! All these new babies reminded me of those early days when you are struggling for any scrap of sleep you can get, and can sometimes feel overwhelmed. But there are also those precious moments in the wee hours when you hold your little one all wrapped up in a cosy cocoon of blankets and feel very content. New borns often remind me of little grubs when they are tightly wrapped in the cocoon with just their little head poking out heheheh. I sometimes miss those moments and almost feel like doing it again....almost heheh I like my sleep too much now! ;0) So happy mothers day to all those mothers out there!!
