Well...It has been an exhausting and exhilarating two months. I am back in Australia; the trip home to Ireland was not for leisure but to spend quality time with a loved one who is still recovering in hospital. There were very sad times along with some heart warming moments, having the love and support of family and friends really helped.
I have always enjoyed walking by the banks of the river, parklands and woods near where I grew up. It is one of those places I liked to go and spend quiet reflective time. Listening to the sweet sound of the birds, the rush of the water over the rocks, the fragrance of wild flowers while embracing all the sights of the countryside. It's a pure delight for the senses.
I thought I would share photos where the inspiration came from on this trip to Ireland, for my illustration "Watching Clouds". It was hand drawn and painted digitally a couple of years ago and holds some lovely childhood memories for me.
Enjoy the rest of your week.
Until next time, Happy Creating!
