I've got to catch up on sleep - I am so tired - it's so hard when your kids are sick - not just the physical stuff they go through, but they are just so unhappy - which in turn makes you unhappy. today is a new day - and he is getting better, but ever since he's started kindergarten it seems that he gets sick more often - they all pass around their germs. I don't know if I've mention this before, but I rarely get colds - john thinks I'm a freak of nature. he still doesn't know how I function without coffee in the mornings. I remember going about 8 years without nothing not even a headache - I'm fortunate I guess - in turn it makes me have a low tolerance to pain - which is not such a good thing especially when your going through child labour.
the image above is paintings I did about 10 years ago - I mixed each of the colours to be different tones of sepia ink. the exercise was to create compositions restricted to it's size and based on a grid. these are hanging in my bedroom and as I lay in bed I keep staring at them and think I want to do something with the imagery I created. I am thinking of recreating similar pieces but with my natural dyed fabric. I will do some on the weekend and hopefully have something to show you. tomorrow I will have pictures to show you of a new pattern.
