A little whimsical creepy piece which just came out. Probably inspired by my love of all things Tim Burton & the dark imaginings of “inner childhood” when spooks and bumps in the night seemed as real as anything in the daylit hours.

    Anita, I like the flow of lines and that mysterious little, set of eyes, peeking out. That the cat and her are in the journey together protecting one another. :) xo

    I just finished a Nora Roberts book about a little girl named Emma, who expressed the magnified feelings and emotions of how it feels to be a child and when every blade of grass that moved sounded like monsters! What you said here brought that back deeply! I love this!

  • Thank you Ellen :)) Sounds like a good book. You know when I was little I had what I know know is called “clairaudiaunce”- Hope I spelt that correct but basically I could hear things that were not of this realm, it made for a very frightening childhood lol. In my mid twenties I started having very vidid “clairvoyance” vision but funnily enough without the sound. Once a “medium” told me I was sensitive and could do what she did but I wasnt ready and I wonder if thats why I’ve never experienced both together, and quite honestly dont want to lol. I sometimes remember quite strongly those childhood memories but thankfully nothing much spooks me these days :)) x

    I’ve not heard of this term, which I won’t try to spell, but I too have been told I am an ‘empath’ and also called a ‘sensitive’? I feel things too deeply and can’t hear or watch violence and such… I’d not want to see too much either! smiles…but so glad you can imagine what you do do!

  • I think its v.common in creative types :)) Your sensitivity comes across in your beautiful paintings & the flow of your lines xx
