I've been mesmerised doing this piece, but I think it's time to move on to something else. I seem to let myself just DOT, and therefore I dont have to think. It's a bit trancelike. My escapism if you like. But my mind is screaming out to express itself and only other artists would appreciate this thought. So many, many other thoughts and ideas are whiring around, and I'm trying to jot down ideas, so that something clearly jells. I'm jumping between painting, drawing, sketching, and fiddling with dots. LOL.
This is where I'll leave this piece. I didn't manage to convey the lightheartedness and fun of a sleepover, so maybe I'll try again later.

This is a Work in Progress, and something thats been in the back of my mind for some time. Have been reading a book by the name of " drawing from within"-unleashing your creative potential. And one thing that gave me a bit of a kick start was a chapter which concentrated on artist block, and he virtually says........draw, just draw and draw, and something will happen. Stop waiting for the masterpiece, just draw, so, I called for a bit of inspiration to practice on, and remembered Teone, suggested I paint something relevant for her age group. So Teone if you happen to check this out, its not finished, but its coming along, dont you think. As a drawing excercise, its been fun, because, its not really realism and its not really contemporary.....yet.
