Last night was met with little sleep. Leila was up several times to nurse and when her little eyes would finally close, my mind was racing with new ideas and images of paintings in my head. But, my creativity had to wait until after we ran a few errands this morning, one being a trip to the mall. Leila loved all the lights and I didn't mind all the oohs and ahhs from strangers over her cuteness. I would politely say "thank you", but secretly I was beaming with pride inside. By the time we got home it felt like we had been through a marathon...running errands just isn't the same with a baby in tow. Probably because I literally am running...hmmm. I would just rather stay cozied up at home reading books and playing, but I guess life must go on.
Here is the beginning of one of my middle of the night visions. Just getting some color on the canvas right now. But, when complete I'm hoping for a poppy field that will look so refreshing you will want to become the very girl in the painting to smell them all for yourself.
