I quickly sketched this yesterday while I was on a teabreak at work and quickly coloured it during another cup of tea at breakfast today :)
And while my little sketch featured heavily around tea and quicknesses it has also surprisingly taken me on a bit of a journey, with a few revelations and realisations.....
This is only the 3rd piece I have ever created that features the pregnant form....which is pretty astounding considering I absolutely LOVE the pregnant body!
Women's curves at their utmost beautiful, housing another growing being...simply awe-inspiring!
It's also pretty crazy when considering that for the last 11 years midwifery has passionately filled my life.
So my journey took me into wondering why I have kept my 2 passions in life soooo separate-
being creative and being a midwife, especially when midwifery at its best relies solely upon intuition, openness and trust :)
I feel like I have been a bit foolish!...to take this long to realise just how divided I have kept myself! But I also feel that kind of deep sigh that comes with the dawning of a truth we actually always knew..it was just a bit hidden!
I want to share the first ever drawing I did celebrating the pregnant body , which funnily enough I did loooong before I became a mum or a midwife 15 years ago!
And the second one you'll maybe remember inspired by the lovely Louise Gale and her colour challenge I took part in August!
So there you have my 3 pregnant pictures......I have a feeling there may be LOTS more to come!
Thankyou for indulging me and letting me share :)
