Playdate with Sulea



Had a lovely afternoon yesterday - went for a painting playdate with Sulea. The peace and quiet was surreal as there was no 'mum mum where are you, I want' etc etc. Love my kids but I do remember TBK ahhhhh. Sulea and I talked painting and how we feel about it and I got to see her recent work in the flesh which is totally amazing, her expression blows me away. Another plus was the pumpkin/pecan cake BTW I need the receipe! so you can guess how much I wanted to come home to the end of the day routine LOL but when your child puts his little arms around your neck and says 'I love you Mummy'....and the bigger one to... well I suppose I'll keep them he he.


Anyway here is what I played with yesterday and last night and just a little bit this morning! it's called Heartfelt Release and I will be sending it to Ireland to a friend who visited last year. Margaret is a special needs teacher who chooses to work in a school in a poorer area as they need her help the most.

I was also thrilled yesterday when Sulea gave me one of her paintings. It's called 'The Loving Space' and words fail me to express how honoured I feel to have a piece of Sulea's work. Check out Sulea's blog shortly to see her what she was working on yesterday, be prepared to be amazed! So I think you will agree that I had a pretty good Sunday. Hope you all have a lovely week. Hugs, Carmel xxxxx

having seen both of these in the flesh (well in the paint really) they are spectacular, I was mesmerised by Sulea's painting, so soulful - you are a lucky girl to have such a beautiful picture. I love your painting too C, though it wasn't finished it had a lot of expression in it. Love the title and I am positive your friend will cherish it.

Carmel - this is beautiful! I am sure your friend will be so touched that you would make this for her.
Sounds like you and Sulea had a great day together. I get to meet her in person in June (whooo hooo).

Love the painting she gave you. Such a beautiful expression on the lady's face.
