I have so many thoughts which I would love to share. They come and go during the day when I am with Elliot. They all spread out somewhere in the corners of my memory at the end of the day. In the result of that the best will be to post gratitude list (the thought came during breastfeeding, the best time to unwind).
Gratitude list. April:

soda bread-my first ever,
bonfires, fossils and 'Autumn' by Ali Smith,
'20th century women' movie,
every single day and moment spent with Elliot,
grumpy days because then I appreciate happy ones,
being published in 'Juno' magazine
public library in Inverness

10 months

Elliot is 10 months now. 10 months of new life, new journey. My heart is full of happiness and gratitude. However there are days when I feel being exhausted would never stop. These months taught me to trust my instincts and follow my heart. It has been a lesson of new self and old self, of loneliness (living rural) and going beyond. It has been time of experiencing love every day.

Last painting I did during pregnancy. I have been sketching Elliot's portraits since he was born. They are my prints of love, tiredness (always sketching in the evenings), gratitude, fear of being not perfect. They are my prints of motherhood. They are my gifts for Elliot.

Hello dear ones. Sometimes I wonder will I be able to write about something different than motherhood. So far being a mum fills my life completely and everything is related to it, creating as well. We were visiting Edinburgh last week. I caught up with my women friends. Women as mothers, women who trying for a child, women occupied with their lives so much, women who closed their eyes and do not want to open them, happy women,  women who lost their tribe or maybe never had one, women who lost their courage to be who they want to be, women who are so strong and not even aware of their strengths, women artists, friends, lovers. We all are one at one point. We all have been there.

My works were recently published  at M.A.M.A (Mothers are making art). I feel honored and very happy to be there. I recommend so much reading an interview with Dyana who is a creator of Procreate project (M.A.M.A). Fantastic woman, beautifully speaks about life, art, motherhood and sisterhood.

Finally I proudly present art of my son. Because baby art matters, made with joy and love.

It is fascinating how fast we develop in the first months of our lives. We are incredibly eager, determined and curious to learn, to try. We love ourselves unconditionally and we are incredibly happy to...be, to live.

I still cannot express how motherhood is powerful and how it opens me, puts people, life, things in different, better perspective and light, how it  teaches me to understand more and feel more.
The most important of all I am so very much  grateful  to be, to be a mother....
