We all have memories of falling in our dreams, swimming in a deep, dark sea...

This is my man, after a good week of surfing. Taken with a Lomo Diana F+ in Capbreton, France.
good mail day

I have had a fairly unproductive week this week with helping my husband's nephews revise their English for the start of school, it is only an hour a day, but as I don't teach kids normally (didn't teach kids, excuse me), I find it kind of stressful. So I spend a lot of time searching for something that will amuse them into at least participating and perhaps learn something on top of that.... so honestly, I have only really started to draw again today after drawing on Saturday (almost a week, be disgusted).
So, to keep my mind off it, I have been sending submissions: I sent one to illustration promo, run by the same guy that organised Mail Me Art, then I send some cards and stickers to people who are going to put them in a collective promo pack... then the above piece is for Good Mail Day, organised by the podpost people ... phew. I have a few more things to post... and I am done, for now.
Etsy Finds! Ouais!

I have found myself sent to thousands of inboxes this afternoon via Etsy. Wonderful Amanda Blake featured me in her picks for The Storque: Finds... pretty happy!
I am pleased to own "Carlotta", this little painting below of Amanda's (as of yesterday, which was my birthday, it even arrived exactly on the day). It now has pride of place in a very visible place in the living room.

I took this photo in the corner of the studio of my man's Grandfather with a Diana F+. It came out all red.
