feeling wonky!

Hi beautiful peeps!
I've just signed up for Blogtoberfest and you can too by clicking the little link somewhere over there on the right....I'm not even sure how it all works yet but I can feel a giveaway coming on and it also means that I'm making a commitment to blog every day this month which means you'll be getting the good, bad and the ugly and today I'm totally feeling like a mixture of all three...I dont really want to go into it suffice to say that I'm in a seriously self doubting mood and I'm just going to have to ride it out...my studio feels like a good place to hide today I think...both of the girls are working at their weekend jobs, Marco's waiting for the wind to pick up so he can go kite surfing and me, well I think I'll just go and dip some fingers in some paint.

Saw this a few months back and then again today on my friend Donna Heart's blog and just had to share...sometimes we just all need to lighten up, find our silly side and let the giggles and kookiness out....watch out..its contagious!

Tell the truth I've been feeling a little kooky lately...painting very loosely and without a care...watching little creatures emerge from my work on their own volition, feeling a bit like Alice in Wonderland......Isn't it fun!!!
