For all those who had a stab at guessing what I was sketching the other day, here is the finished drawing of a.......Black Truffle!! Some of the guesses were very clever, but no-one was quite on the money😄I was reading an article on truffle farming in Australia, and was inspired by a beautiful photograph of a cross-section of a black truffle. Forgot how much fun it was to get messy with pastels, how striking black paper can be, and how much I love the intricate beauty of food crops😊 #milkthistleandco #milkthistlemakes #drawing #pastel #pastels #blackpaper #blacktruffle #foodgloriousfood #fungi #foodillustration #truffle #artist #illustratorsoninstagram @milkthistleandco

Been far too long since I've played with these babies!! I just realised after taking the photo in my previous post that I did that entire sketch with my left hand! That is one of the little adaptations MS has forced on me-being more ambidextrous when my right hand won't cooperate! The brain is indeed plastic. Meanwhile, is it just me or is this case of pastels just beautiful?😊😊 #pastels #chalkpastels #ms #adaptation #ambidextrous #plasticbrain #allthecolours #allthecolors #possibilities #rainbow

On the dark side. Sketching an odd little curiosity of nature after being inspired by a photograph in a magazine. Guess what it is...? #hint #youcaneatit #artist #wip #pastel #chalkpastel #blackpaper #blackbackground #darkarts #milkthistleandco #milkthistlemakes @milkthistleandco

Latergram. My golden girl. Nice to look back on good times after what has been one of the most difficult weeks of my life. Even with a stay in hospital, my recovery from this MS relapse has been slow, and even regressive at times. I haven't ever felt as incapacitated as I have this week. It took alot of strength for me to not fall apart, to BREATHE, stay calm and be patient with myself and my recovery But honestly, if it hadn't been for the support of my family, I don't know what I would have done. They have never made me once feel like a burden and that alone has a big impact on where my headspace is at. I am a very lucky girl indeed😊💛💛💛💛

Forgot to post this from a few weeks back! Little blue-tongue hanging in the veggie patch. S/he was NOT happy. I've never seen the tongue look so wide before! Maybe coz it was trying to show us how tough it was and to back the F off 😄😝🦎💙 #bluetonguelizard #australianreptiles #veggiepatch #bluetongue #backyard

HOME. Munching on edamame, because in my opinion there is nowhere near enough green veg to eat in hospital!!! (Mash, chips and pastry on the one plate, and like 2 spoons of veg😳) And also, a beautifully coloured bandaid where they took my cannula out courtesy of Ruby, because in her opinion, a plain one was too BORWING!!😄😍🌈 ALSO----- A HUGE heartfelt thankyou for all of the kind comments wishing me well on my previous post. It really does make a difference when you're in hospital on your own, feeling pretty ordinary, and you feel the beautiful love from wonderful IG friends. THANKYOU 💞💞💞#home #happyplace #ms #multiplesclerosis #ihavems #onthemend #betterhospitalfoodPLEASE

Well. My MS was feeling neglected and decided to rear its ugly head. Hanging in hospital while I get the good drugs😉💉💊#ms #multiplesclerosis #ihavems

Happy Mothers Day from me and the critter who made me a mumma! I hope all the mothers and mother figures were showered with as much love and 'make-ups' as I was😆😊😍💄💋
