My Lovely Dad

This is such a hard post to write but I felt I should just let anybody who reads my blog know; my Dad died on Saturday 23rd August, just before midnight.

He was at home, with my Mum and sister.

He was a wonderful Dad and Grandad. I miss him so much and I can't believe he has gone. xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Illustration Friday - "Sail"

I should have been working towards our next exhibition, but only having an hour or so to spare, and no fusible web to carry on with my doll, I couldn't resist having a go at this topic. It's done with sgraffito - scratching into oil pastels. I've never done it before and I enjoyed it. I'm having a difficult time at the moment and it took my mind off things slightly- for a little while at least.

I've been having trouble uploading the image so I do hope I don't make some terrible mistake! Also it looks a bit "liney"...oh well. It's the thought that counts.
