Darling Buds of May by micklyn

Ok, I know. It’s not May. But this is the Southern hemisphere here where I am, and it is Spring time all the same. Darling buds of September just doesn’t have the same ring to it, does it?

I seem to be a tad obsessed with miniaturizing my little ones… perhaps there is a subliminal longing to keep them as small as possible as long as possible? I don’t know, maybe it’s just because it’s really fun to do. As a child I loved stories like ‘The Borrowers’ and Charles Kingsley’s “Waterbabies” … The thought of little people was so fascinating. I wanted one!! A pet person to sit on my shoulder and talk to. I have ten now, totally worth it, only they’re not this small. : )

PS Mila’s birthday is in May, so maybe the title is perfect after all.

Blending done in Photoshop CS5 using my own textures.

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.

    _Mila has never looked more marvelous! I love how you are shrinking your children and I subliminally wish I could FREEZE them at a young cute age and THAW them out for holidays so I could selfishly enjoy them. Now I want to FREEZE my grand daughter as soon as I can catch her. Your work is always a joyous celebration of childhood innocence done by a great and loving Mother.

  • Thank you ever so much for that lovely comment, Seth, so encouraging and uplifting. : )
