Sweeter Now

I was planning to do the study in water colour pencils but in the end the oil pastels won out – the colours are so vibrant and tactile. It was so lovely working outside in the woods and the light changing under the leaf canopy gives a real sense or time passing.

The strangest thing though is writing about it afterwards….

Nobody: What’ve you been up to today Lou?
Me: Well, funny you should ask, I’ve been working on a Time Lapse study for Sweeter Now.
Nobody:…..
Me: it’s one of my songs
Nobody: ah, ok. What’s it about?
Me: Being a mum, loving being a mum. But also being a mum who sometimes sucks at being a mum
Nobody: shuffles awkwardly
Me: I didn’t write it for you.

😂😂😂😂

day off, mum life, mom life, Family time

Beach Day

Today’s been a beach day 🌞 went in the sea, built sand kingdoms, watched the tide come in and take them away – oh and I got burned 🥵 as I was a bit slapdash with the sun screen missing half my legs and entirely forgetting that the back of my top was MESH doh 🙄!

Back in the cool of the woods my burn is, well burning 🔥 so exiting these cool green time lapse videos have been quite soothing. I’ve been playing with the speed of the time lapse to play with the whole passing of time and I’m pretty pleased with the results so far 👍

As I have aphantasia I have no idea how things are going to turn out – just a feeling, a description rather than an image in my mind so I’m always as surprised as everyone else at the end result and that’s kinda cool I think.

Anyhoo I’m going to watch a bit of Breaking Bad before bed – love it when a program is better each time you watch it
