a little legend who wears peacock feathers in her hair…i wonder what her story is…i bet it’s fascinating….perhaps there’s a little bit of you and a little bit of me in her….i’d like to think so.

art as therapy….definitely, this piece was therapeutic…… i was lost in 3 hours of whimsy when i created this between 11pm and 2am this morning….

it so pleased me to use peacock feathers, we have had a vase of them in mum’s house from as long back as i can remember…and below you will see a little picture of my mum when she was a little girl posing for a photo with her peacock feather fan…i have always loved this picture of my mum. From what I understand she is on her way to a dance, all dressed up in kimono as a dear little geisha… a red haired one with curls to die for…mum i hope you like this….dedicated to you with love … xxx

So you see, that kimonos, peacock feathers and the love of beautiful adornments have been intriguing me my whole life, my mum is so creative and sews beautifully, and used to make a dresses for herself and me, she would be sure to purchase extra fabric to make me a little dress in a different style to hers, to bond us closer as mother and daughter…what a lovely thought

    Oh my Karin …you must channel these wonderful images and characters from heaven.How adorable and sex at the same time is she? and the peacock feathers …. just add that little bit of je ne se qaoi (no idea how to spell t but hope you know what I mean). Wonderful work and just the sort of feelings evoked to bounce me nicely into this Sunday . :) xo p.s you were in your studio at 2.00am just enjoying the aircon weren’t you and this darling popped in to your amazing mind announced ? LOL:)

  • lol…so happy you like her V..and thank you so much for your gorgeous response too…i went to bed about 11pm and took my pencils and sketch pad with me, so no air cond, but it wasn’t too hot…the main problem i have now, is oooh sooo tired and sleepy! lol

    I get this terrible urge to create very late at night, i think i’ve always come very alive at night (one of those nocturnal animals) which really should sleep throughout the day, but I’m away then too lol… whch is silly as i really need lots of sleep to function at best, so anyway, i was very sleepy then came awake at the idea of creating a girl from my heart… and so she was born :) xxx
