My Star Son is obsessed with Unicorns, and rainbows and I like to encourage him in all things “mystical” so he asked me if I’d paint him a unicorn, my first thought was “ICAN’T” and I thought what example am I setting him if I jump in and say “I can’t!” so instead I said, “I’ve never painted one before but I’ll have a try” and kept my fingers crossed that I could do it justice. I did a wish for him on the blank canvas and then many layers, using Nikki Shannon’s http://www.energypainter.com/ process, and today I decided to finally get to the “actual” unicorn, so I asked the “unicorn” to help guide me and I must say I’m surprised with how well it turned out and quietly quite proud of it but when Will got home I didn’t say anything knowing he’d check the easel to see what I’d been up to… and then… he SCREAMED!! “OHMYGOD, OHMYGOD, OHMYGOD MUUUUUUM” so I asked him “Do you like it?” he was so excited, he said “NOOOOO I LOVE IT! OHMYGOD MUM you are amazing” and that my friends is why I do art, because my son thinks I am amazing!!
