busy a-hunting

I keep meaning to post something new and interesting here, but somehow I keep getting too busy with other things. And when I do sit down to write, I feel lost for words. Maybe it's because I'm worried about a number of things right now. Or maybe it's the sleep that I'm not getting enough of. Or maybe it's Sofia going through a difficult phase right now, constantly crossing boundaries and throwing horrible tantrums that make me just want to weep in a corner. Sigh.

Sadly, I haven't done any proper pictures recently, as I'm busy job hunting. I've realised that one can't afford to be a starving artist if one has kids to take care of. I'm consoling myself with the thought that having a stable job (instead of freelancing) would mean I wouldn't have to worry about money matters and I'd be able to concentrate on doing the things I love in my free time. That's the idea anyway. I have a job interview this coming week which I'm really excited about, because it's with a company I'd love to work for, and it involves a role that I'd actually love to do. Wish me luck, please!

Anyway, here's a painting I made a couple of weeks ago. I'd love to do more pictures like this. This is only the first of a series, I hope. Children and their wonderful, wild imagination are definitely my favourite subject.

What a beautiful picture.

Thanks! This is one of my favourites from last year. I'll probably put some prints up for sale in the shop. :)
