Mapping Thoughts

She is called Thought and came out of a thought. This one is actually heavily influenced by scrap booking {hullo EssenseVibez!} as I loved the little flourishes I saw all over the scrapbooks that I loved and I wanted to put them all over the place -- all over the place. I didn't necessarily want to stick something on the piece so I sat down and drew in each little swirl and dot...I sharpened many pencils that night.

I have another thought and that's a series of postcards. I have this perfect little book of post card sized watercolour paper and I want to put things on them. I'll be working on those soon.

I'm writing from the south of Trinidad today. Public holiday today and I'm at my sister's house with the family. Been a good day; quiet, reflective and a little pained. But that's not always a bad thing. I've been having many thoughts about myself, my identity and my life, not all of them good but it's a thing i have to work through.

Aleesuhn -- Do it! I love feeling inspired so I'm excited for you!

Retromus-ik --People do say that I draw myself alot but it isn't intentional and I never see what they see :p. Thanks alot and yes, south is lovely, quiet and homely. Very different from other parts of Trinidad.

Nana -- your first words usually get me laughing! Damn girl. Awesome! :]
We just started the rainy season here so we have lots of rain, hot, hot sun and humidity. But it's still quite nice.
