Being a mother and artist- passing it on

A brief hello to you all from our south coast holiday where we are reveling in the arrival of spring – blue skies, 16 degrees celcius and the smell, sound and touch of the seaside to revive me. Happy, happy.

Today, on the beach, Isabella declared that we will make a Family Picture in the sand. And so we did – for about an hour, all four of us! Loved it. Here’s a preview – Perot Land Art, Part One! I will post more at the end of the week.

In the meantime, I want to pass on a link from my friend Dana, about a film that I heard of in the fishbowl last Autumn,  which Dana has happily reminded me about.

Who does she think she is – a film about women, mothering and art…oh boy! The trailer strikes a chord or ten. Hoping that I can gather a bunch of us Londoners to watch together…how about it? Pass it on…

    oooohhhh yes! What a fab idea. I'll be there to watch it and I'm sure there are a few others nearby who would be up for it too.

    just made a miniature garden with Gabriel today (well actually I did most of it!) and love your little beach art scene – reminds me of a mini garden too.

    Just thought I'd come and say hello since I'm another arty mum. Haven't heard of the film before – definately sounds interesting. Your mosaics are beautiful – I always fancied having a go myself.
