The Mousesses

I've been wanting to do a bit of painting for a loooong while, but only got around to it today.
This is a dinky little acrylic on canvas, 5" x 7", still waiting for a lick of varnish...
She'a a 'mousess', Antoinette, part of a series I'm planning. I don't want to give to much away, but those of you who have heard me mention Hogmouse Hall might be able to guess what else I'm going to paint.

Do you remember that scene in the film 'Amelie', where her pictures talk to each other at night while she's sleeping? Well, that's the kind of thing I can imagine this little mousess doing...she just needs me to paint her someone to talk to now.

I'm planning on sorting out my attic tomorrow, the door to which is fianlly unblocked from kitchen cabinet doors and tools.
I'm enjoying being off 'work', I never thought I'd say that, it never seems like work because it's such a passion of mine! But it's given me the chance to escape into my own little world for a while. I can paint what I like, what colour I like etc!

I'm going to turn in early tonight, I'm hoping I to actually get some sleep, (bump and labour anxiety keeping me awake!).

So night night all,

don't let your paintings keep you up all night chattering!
