Sales of this design so far – 2 sales – thank you!!

This was so much fun, a little nonsense drawing, i painted the sky with acrylics by hand on paper, and the rest is digitally painted over the drawing. For those days when everything goes wrong, or you think you’re going round the twist…

There’s a Butterfly on my Nose

There’s a butterfly on my nose
and an elephant in my teapot
with the moon strapped to her back
and a star on top of that

Life sometimes takes us by surprise, it doesn’t always make sense or go according to plan…i tribute this to my father, who is always getting into funny situations… like his hair is on fire and he hasn’t noticed…but we can smell something burning…. lol…..or his pants are on inside out…but he’s already out at the club when he realises, cos his pockets won’t work…lol … he visits the ’men’s’ to try and turn them in the right way,… and gets a lot of funny looks in the amenities as he’s changing… no one would believe the crazy scrapes my father gets into….it’s hilarious on the scale of Basil Fawlty

    Ahhhh, can relate to that really well… on days when things just aren’t working out as I want them to. She is just gorgeous – I feel like I’m looking deep into her soul… her eyes are big pools of water and I’m gazing in… mesmerised!! x

  • hehe…me too Kaz…i’m so glad you connect with her… lol…i often get caught on door handles, it’s extremely embarrassing but i LOL when it happens…as it reminds me how short i am…when i worked in the bank i would often get hooked on the handle while bringing my bosses their tea and bikkies and it was quite funny trying not to spill it everywhere…so many other funny things happen…but life just rarely goes according to plan does it!! it’s good to have a sense of humour and get some comedy and nonsense going on i find :) xxx
