The watercolour mouse was the first painting created for “The Scruffy Dog Story”. This painting was called “Big Dreams”. Furthermore, it represents all of us that have big dreams. We hope one day that they will come true.
I am always thrilled when people keep in touch. Even more so after they have bought one of my paintings. Above all, any piece of artwork from a greeting card to an apron, I am grateful for any purchase. This mouse painting was one piece had gone to Hong Kong all the way from the U.K. You can read the journey here
I was thrilled to read the next chapter of the watercolour mouse painting when I received the following email. Likewise, for me, my journey as an artist will be to go to China next month on an export mission. In Hong Kong, the journey has now continued as follows. Here is her email…..
Just updating you on the story of the little mouse with big dreams.
Well, Ollie is now 3.5 years old and is going to pre school now. Next year his parents will be looking into primary schools for him.
The painting is now living in his playroom and the mouse keeps him company. Ollie plays with his kitchen, his garage and other toys that little boys collect throughout their Christmases and birthdays.
In addition, the glass version sits on my corridor wall in Hong Kong. It reminds me of my year that I took a sabbatical to look after my daughter and Ollie in his first year. I’m feeling blessed that she got a 2:1 in her history degree and now working in London in her dream career.
So big dreams do works.
