The Thoughtful Guy by micklyn

This is Hudson (4) and Belle (who is not so tiny any more.) Hudson keeps doing these little doodles and drawings and bringing them to me and asking me to “put them in the computer”. While I love him to bits and think his creativity is great, I do kind of get tired of scanning endless abstract squiggles. So I thought I’d combine one of his artworks with one of mine, to make it more interesting for me… ( : So this is a portrait of the artist and his art.

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.
