Since the last entry I’ve made:
- 3 owls
- 2 giraffes
- 1 huge rabbit
Me and Simon booked our hotel and flights tonight. It was a toss up between Rome and Amsterdam. Financially Rome wasn’t an option, so we’re spending five nights in Amsterdam and I can’t wait!
Here’s a painting I just added to my Etsy shop. I painted this canvas for two reasons. I’d started a canvas like this years ago and never finished it. It had a smudged brown background and a blue fence, which I planned to put ghosts behind. I love how this one turned out, and how the smudged brown border turned into an oval frame.
I remember having a book when I was little called ‘The Little Ghost’. The front cover was a grainy illustration of a ghost in an attack with a big happy smile. Since then I’ve always loved the idea of ghosts being friendly, playful and not at all sad that they’re dead. I added little twinkling stars, and some daisies on the hill to make it seem a cheerful playground for the ghosts.
