Hello dear souls.
You find me in a restless and wistful state of mind at the moment. Do you ever feel like that? Like you can’t settle long to any task, that life is held in limbo somehow, and the mind wanders aimlessly to places far away and lends itself to dreaming quite a lot.
And add to that mixture, unsurprisingly, the creative juices seem to have stopped flowing. All dried up, nothing doing.
Oh dear, it’s a funny old state of affairs when life suddenly goes all tipsy like this without warning, and all the comfortable normal stuff is suddenly quite bland and very uninteresting.
I find my weary little mind asking some rather Big Questions too, about whether this part of the world really suits us any longer, but if it doesn’t – what then? I find myself hankering for my life by the sea again, having a beach on the doorstep and always being amazed by that. I know, some of you may be reading this and thinking ‘yep, we’d all like a bit of that!’ but this thought is starting to drive me to distraction and the feeling of being landlocked in the middle of the UK is sending me quite claustrophobic!!
I don’t want this to be a maudlin post, but I want to be a real person here and share what’s really happening in my little world. Im going to continue musing, listening to the things that keep popping in my mind and see what evolves.
In the meantime, whilst my head is firmly ensconced in dreamland (where I live in an arty and bustling little beachside abode) I will share with you some pictures of some new Hand Illustrated greetings cards.
These are pencil and watercolour drawings on Canson watercolour paper,which has been mounted onto a blank white card, titled and signed…
…and both of them are available in my Folksy and Etsy shops ~ the links are in the sidebar 😀
Similar cards have sold well before in the little gallery in Lincolnshire, and apparently some people like to buy them to frame as they are in effect, tiny original paintings!
I hope you like them!
This is quite a short post today, (a day later than usual my friends as yesterday I was to preoccupied to write anything) as Im off to town very soon. I want to welcome some new followers who have joined my blog recently and to thank you for stopping by with such nice comments – Im still in awe of the lovely people I have had the pleasure to meet through blogging and Im looking forward to meeting many more – oh, I must apologise too, been a bit poor on Blog Visiting this last week, but hopefully this post may go a short way to explaining why.
Hopefully normal service will soon be resumed and life will soon find a scoop of normality from somewhere to relieve this unsettled feeling.
Til next time, sending mucho love your way…
