Everything takes much longer than you think it will

A little sketch made a while ago during warmer weather at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne. It took longer than I thought it would when I sat down to do it. I was in such a jovial mood, sun was shining, the grass was warm to sit on and then I realised how much foliage I had committed to sketching. I'll be honest, my hand started cramping up and then I was bored. But I was stubborn and drew what I saw. Sometimes I'm lazy and stubborn at the same time when it come to drawing, especially when lying in the sweet smelling grass is such an attractive option.

Also congratulations to Vaughan. You have a print coming your way! Thanks to those of you who  left a comment to celebrate the opening of my etsy shop.

What if we lived in a rock pool?

What if we lived in a rock pool?
What if we swam around all day?
You and me,
And the sky and the sea,
Eating cake made of seaweed.
We could invite our friends for a cup of salty tea,
And even though our skin might get a bit soggy,
If we lived in a rock pool,
I’d be happy,
Because you’re in the rock pool with me.
