Being Creative, Fire

“Firelight will not let you read fine stories but its warm and you wont see the dust on the floor."

Had to think about this one a minute....
I found fire tough to draw.... so I went with glitter!
It's twinkly in the right light...

I do love a fireplace to cuddle up beside.... which always draws a warm cat to your lap.


  1. OOOOOh Melody how beautiful! Love your mices roasting and dining on their very own pumpkin seeds. That fire does have a real spark(le)!
    Your words, as ever, complement your illustrations amazingly well and I just love your thoughts and ideas!
    Thinking of you and your warm cat by your fire....can't imagine any dust!

  2. Thank are so sweet!

    Dust? I don't see any dust. ;))))

  3. It's lovely again Mel ... the fire does sparkle this way ;-) and the use of real pumpkin seeds looks wonderful. Looking at this I would love to join the mice and warm my hands at the fire. :-)

  4. You've done it again!! You've made me smile and gasp at your lovely illustration work!! I really like how you worked with the theme this month, and once again you have captured a fabulous scene full of warmth and character! Brilliant!

    Love Julia x x x

  5. Not sure those guys would want a warm cat to be too close! It's lovely and I think the mixed media is a wonderful idea.

  6. I love the mixed media you've added to this :)
