"A portrait of my child once a week, every week in 2013."

Casper: Today you helped me take my work home from the gallery and fell asleep in your pram on the walk through the Swanston Street icy wind-tunnel. Then you woke up with an angry fever and wanted to cuddle all afternoon. Cousin Sammy came over and cuddled you too. We read you Mickey in the Night Kitchen and you fell straight into bed, cake-free and dried.

Joining in with Jodi. Also on my Tumblr.


  1. Beautiful. Your renderings are so wonderful.

  2. Such beautiful, dreamy images Ruby. I love scrolling through your artwork.

  3. oh Ruby, Mickey is the best: "I'm in the milk and the milk's in me." These paintings like of them make me smile and nod to you the artist-mum, but also nod in recognition of the child-you I knew who knows how to stay child.

  4. I love the patterns in these Ruby as well as your glorious colours. mel x

  5. This is just too beautiful. Seriously. X
