Tweet for 1st April
"And this morning the shed is skimming the waves of a warm luminous ocean where dolphins play and mermaids sing their songs of joy and freedom."
As this calendar project develop's I find to my dismay that I am indulging my own fantasies as much as illustrating Joanna's tweets.
As a little girl I was constantly painting mermaids and admit I actually wanted to grow up to be a mermaid. To this day I swim in the sea as often as I can, the last time on Christmas Day in Bude - although the water there was much colder and greyer than in my painting.
