The brief that was delivered to my inbox on Friday evening informed us that Tara has a mild obsession with a certain element of nature:
Anyway, to indulge me and my obsession, this week's theme is: Trees.
Simple as that. Trees near your home, from a holiday, new trees, ancient trees. Trees you used to climb as a child, trees you picnic under. Trees.
My first thought was of a very special tree to me, and to The Boy.
His room is quite small and therefore needed something special doing to it. I had always wanted a room for my child that would be a place that was individual. Somewhere to spark their imagination and provide them with play opportunities. Somewhere to send them off on that soft white cloud to the land of nod with pleasant dreams.
We decorated his room on the Easter Bank Holiday 2009 and each single leaf that I painted was detailed with overwhelming love and attention for my unborn child.
