One more attempt at painting my 2 year old. I took a picture the other night while putting her to bed. She loves her room staring at the rocket ship at the wall, painted stars, art by few DA artists I purchased while back, and some got as present and twinkling star fairy lights above her. Every night we cuddle and go through the routine, we read "Its a Tiger" by David LaRochelle and scream through house A TIGGGGEEEEEERRRRR!!! ARGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RUUUUNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! then we sing, about two dozen songs then she turns around cuddles rocket ship pillow while resting her head on bedding with embroidered stars kisses me and falls asleep. I cherish these moments. I enjoy putting my babies to bed, first Laila the 6 month old, then Stella the two year old terrornaught, and finally Illyana 10 year old angel.
I painted to this listening to Chopin's Nocturnes www.youtube.com/watch?v=Idimyy…; I love listening to his work, has deep profound sadness that I feel inside, its like listening to a best friend talk to you, who understands what goes on inside your heart and soul. It also feeds my OCD. I spent days getting the lines of the shirt right, and listening to Chopin lets me concentrate, keeps me in focus on one thing - painting. I can then ignore most of the voices inside of my head.
I sent photo of this painting last night to my mum, she wants it, I am not going to give it to her this is Stella's I made it for her, so she can cherish it when she grows up. I enjoy watching her grow, talk and argue, even when she is naughty I see strong spark in her that brightens my world. She is my star. I love her dearly. I love her dreaming. She is incredibly smart little chatterbox.
