self portrait! hehe..
marker pens, oil paint & coloured pencils on bristol paper, A4 size. i didn’t count, but probably about 8 hours work.
it can be sung to the tune of “white Christmas” (ick!)
it’s no secret in my family that i hate this time of year! the busy rush, the expense, the stress, the having to catch up with people who have made themselves irrelevant in your life the rest of the year..
add to that my work in the hospital, which continues xmas or no xmas! and i often found over the years that the pressure from those who believe xmas can ONLY be on the 25th meant i’d come home from a busy shift & find myself cooking &/or socialising! i sympathise with those poor buggers who didn’t want to spend xmas in hospital, & i sympathise with those poor buggers who try to end it all at this time of year (we always get a few!)
I have to fight with my ex over who gets the kid too! sigh! and don’t get me started on the stupid fake snow in the middle of an Aussie summer!
now easter: i love easter! it’s everything xmas should have been! a nice relaxing few days off, dinner with family & friends when you want it, IF you want it, some nice little choccy eggs instead of expensive presents, and the weather’s usually pretty nice here in Oz!
actually, i feel a lot better now i’ve drawn this! :)
