I started this idea a while ago about self publishing a small book on my efforts as an artist between being a Mama to 4 kidlets. Almost impossible!
I really early on in my "career" as a Mama had difficulty realising that the time I had, had to be channelled towards the children and not my own arty passion. Visions of being an fine art oil painter or one of a kind precious jeweller had to take a back seat for now. So the children's world opened up to me with the amazing talents of children's illustrators...could I do that? I ended up trying with the first book " The Dragon's Gift." written by Tom Allen.
So where am I now...developing more illustrations for another self -publisher. We'll see.
But yes I miss jewellery & enamelling.It's not to say I can't do it now. But finances & time are the culprits. ( may'be I don't manage my time efficiently...quite honestly do I need to be perfect?..I can't. :)
Funny I haven't looked at this cover Idea for a while ..and I want to change things!
