My muse has been absent over the last 5-6 weeks. I know why she hasn’t been here; After all – you can’t loose your sister without something having to give. However, convincing her to return has been difficult. But I am not going to dwell on that here as I have done so in my personal hand written journals. What I am going to post about here is the return of my Muse.
I had a couple of good friends over for a girlies art night on Friday. It was a great night with lots of talking, laughter, food and a few wines. The loving, relaxed and creative atmosphere was just what my muse was looking for and she has returned with a vengeance. Woo HOO.
And this is what she sent me……
The mermaid was already drawn and the tail painted. It is one created in a mermaid shaped journal made during the online class “Mermaid Circus”. The balance of her was painted on Friday night. Then yesterday I decided she needed a friend. That is when the Butterfly Fish evolved. Neither are finished yet but I love how they are evolving.

After the fish is complete I will scan it, reduce the size (significantly as it is A4 size at present) and collage it onto the Mermaid page. I will post the finished piece once done.
