I have had a teensy bit of time lately to do some plain old art. Not for clients or anyone, just for me. I decided to expand on a favorite motif of mine, the tea pot and cup with little puffs of steam.
It was nice to just draw and paint for fun. I crave quiet becasue there is so little when you are at home with a three year old. Doing this helps replenish the well.
In other tea news, I created a mug for a dear friend with this image recently.
Thats me on the left and thats her on the right, back in the UK, where they will be moving this week. We both have little boys and have been having tea once a week for over a year, as well as seeing each other at the school drop in. Its been just huge for me to have finally found a friend who gets me, on this journey of motherhood and marriage. We share similar feelings about it all and talk about it freely. What a gift. I'll miss her so so much. I drew this picture imagining we can still do our tea dates across the sea, perhaps by skype?
