Some days I wear my hair, other days my hair wears me. by 

I was doodling the other night, as I do, and my doodles became this mermaid, with plenty of hair and a certain frustrated expression. I looked at her, and knew just how she felt… How often I’ve seen that expression on my own face on a bad hair day. Lol.

I drew this with pencil, photographed it (my scanner’s broken!) and coloured it in photoshop. I painted the background in photoshop and also used a texture from Leslie Nicole’s site, French Kiss

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.
