Night Time Solitude
The school holiday is almost over. I just can't believe how fast the weeks had flown by! Other than spending time with the kids, I've also been busy drawing my little thoughts away. Finding time here and there throughout the day, but mostly during the wee hours of the night when everybody else is fast asleep. It's amazing how a little quietness can bring even the tiniest vision inside my head to life. It's like falling into a hollow space in time where everything stands still but the movements of my hand drawing away.
I spent a few nights awake finishing off this drawing of Alice. It's incredible how I can stay up all night without sleep when I'm eager to see the end result of an unfinished piece. I know it's probably something I shouldn't make a habit of, especially when I need my health more than ever now that my baby is old enough to crawl all over the place! But I must admit that seeing a drawing finished is always a wonderful feeling, even if sleep is the price I have to pay. :)
How about you? Do you stay up at night too?
