I am stuck in Barts hospital in London. Mum got dehydrated so drip in place..yes I have a 4 hour wait.
I was due to meet a friend to celebrate diagnosis of her medical condition. A landmark after many years of frustration.
I spotted hedggie on my arrival. Badly sewn eye. As soon as mum had drifted off , saline solution working, I scooted back to find hedgehog still looking hopeful for a new home.
Well lucky day. I needed cheering up and in honour of our recent removal of two hedgehogs causing a big stir in our chicken coop and stealing eggs too, I couldn’t resist.
My “writing ideas” book shelf needs a squint eyed prickly character to join the other motley crew of lost and founds. Although this year is speeding through fast, I still want to catch up on illustration ideas. But the jumble of current commitments can make it all too easy to chuck the towel in, but then why buy a hedgehog?
So how do I paint prickles?
