NIGHT 281 – THE STORY OF ISHAQ IBN AL MAUSILI

Family emojis

👩🏽/👩🏻👶🏽👦🏽🧓🏼/🎅🏼 There are no emojis for mixed families; myself and the kids are mixed ourselves and as usual are not represented at all, and also no emoji for my husband, who has a young face but grey hair and grey beard! Santa is the closest – sorry!

(He doesn’t look like Santa, at least not yet!)

NIGHT 278 – THE STORY OF ABD’ALLAH IBN ABI QILABA AND IRAM CITY OF THE COLUMNS

Teaching Feng Shui 風水 风水

The wind 💨 and the water 💦

Magic water paper + water blaster + sun 🌞

To be more precise:

Magic water paper + water blaster + brush + wind + water + washing line + 2 pegs + sun but it is very very quick and easy to set up and you will have a BLAST 😂

The wind is there moving the characters. The water makes up the characters. Do you think this symbolism is lost on children? I don’t…

Plus in this hot weather 30 degrees Celsius it dries really quickly so you can do other characters eg 日and others that are easy to see from far away.

Ideally I would make these characters into kites and launch them into the sky and water blast them from there but… I’m not that good at flying kites 🪁… one day…

NIGHT 276 – THE STORY OF ABD’ALLAH IBN ABI QILABA AND IRAM CITY OF THE COLUMNS

Feeling hot hot hot 🌞

My secret to staying up at night and working… apart from generally having enough sleep, I love face mists. They literally wake me up – spraying water in one’s face is not the most pleasant of ideas in theory, but in practice if you use one infused with beautiful ingredients it can be a lovely pick-me-up.

The opposite of a prank joke, basically!

And… this is probably my favourite tale from the 1001 Nights: Iram the City of Columns

Painting I did in my teens. Forgot the title (as is a teenage work, not part of my properadult art portfolio)! Obsession with floating islands, strange landscapes, onion domes, levitating Buddhas and random pagodas already
