Struggling.


With perspective...


With hands, and a pigeon that was bigger than a hen, when I first drew it.




And how to fill this big piece of paper, with pigeons flying, roosting, and whatever else they do...


Also struggling is my grandson who is a-l-m-o-s-t 4.  So as a bit of 'light' relief for me I did what I used to do for my daughters, when traumas loomed, new sibling, etc.  I wrote a book.









A bit of fun, can't beat it, eases the struggle.  And if you can laugh at yourself, you have just stopped struggling.

I LOVE your book. My mother did things just like that when the children were small. She wrote a letter for my niece to take in to her teacher all about her new baby sister. The teacher came out to the playground & thanked mum & guessed she'd been a teacher too !

Fish Spas Jill are trendy new parlours where you put your feet in tanks full of wee fishies who nibble your toes & remove all the dead skin !!! Jess & I tried to go to one in Brighton but both had Verukas so couldn't !

Perfect little book! You covered all the questions that children sometimes have about things that we take for granted. He will be well prepared thanks to his grandma.

What a good artist you are! I've been painting a wee tiny bit & trying to convince myself it's fun ;).
And such a good granny! I must remember your book writing idea for my littles.

As for your struggles with perspective, do struggle on because it looks really good to me.
