    Excellent work! I remember getting so attached to things like this as a child!

  • Yes, I did too and especially this as it seemed to express itself more than I could at the time…sad/happy and angry…and all at the same time! x

    Awww that’s such a wonderful painting. I remember those things in school, we all ended up with bumps and bruises but they were great fun.

    Has that moon hopper got a tear in its eye Vix or is it my imagination/short sightedness? A gem of a work, as always ~ Anni ;)

  • Thanks Anni! 8~)
