June 13, 2014 ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY
This week’s topic is:
I instantly thought about my daughters cat mask, when I discovered the http://illustrationfriday.com topic was Mask.
When I asked her if I could borrow it, she put it on and said….
“You can draw me mum!”
I wanted a bit of dramatic shadow so I placed her near a lamp and I took some photo’s. She is as crazy about art as me and I love her whimsical ways. I also love how she pushes me to create. At the moment she gets up and brings her pencils to the breakfast table. Amongst the crunchy nut corn flakes and the spilt hot chocky, she creates art. I can see her work evolving due to her drawing every day. I am lucky I am surrounded by such a passionate creative family.
I enjoyed creating this abstract dark image, a small playful memory of a rainy afternoon that I spent with my girl chatting, laughing and drawing.
We talked about our favourite movies and the movie we had just seen Maleficent. We are both attracted to dark characters in stories, I have a feeling she will be a goth girl one day. Black on black being her favourite outfit and the fact she thought Maleficent was the coolest fairy ever! (Her outfits were mostly black). We really enjoyed watching that dark fairy tale with a twist. What ever my daughter chooses to do in life, I know there will never be a dull moment.
On a completely different note, When I was younger, I swore to my family that if I did not get married, I would live in a house with ten cats. The bizarre old woman on the street who smells of whiskers cat food and talks to herself. I came close. (I do talk to myself).
I hope you enjoy the art I share here, I never know what will come next, it evolves with me as I live, laugh and learn.
Thanks for visiting, how do you relax and share fun times with the family? I will cherish the rainy day and my crazy cat masked daughter’s shenanigans till the end of time.
