One of my daughters-Lili, (she’s my middle daughter) is 16 years old and has scoliosis. She was only diagnosed about 2 years ago and was immediately braced for 12 months. Unfortunately this didn’t work for her and now she is about to have surgery.
I take her to a private Pilates class once a week since she’s been out of the brace to keep her spine supple and her core strong for this life changing surgery.
I sit in the car and wait for her at Pilates each Thursday evening and I took my iPad. I just doodled mostly, but 2 weeks ago I started drawing ladies. It has been my favourite thing to do lately and completely takes my mind off of the everyday things that make me worry.
Narelle was the First Lady and since then, I have drawn one to two ladies each day and post them on my Instagram.
Mostly they are made up with some random thoughts but some are friends and my daughters even requested one of them. Im not great at likeness to real life but I do enjoy drawing and colouring on the iPad. I use Procreate and an Apple Pencil. I also have a fabulous paper like screen saver on my iPad and it just feels like Im drawing on paper.
Technology certainly is fantastic.
I will share my girls on here as well as my crafty adventures. I hope you can see yourself in some of my drawings and relate to them.
Lilis spinal fusion surgery is this Wednesday, I think there will be lots of drawing this week as I sit by her bed while she recovers.
