Since the weather is extremely boring at the moment I want to give you a heads up on The Handmaid’s Tale. There’s already been 9 episodes released so it’s perfect to start watching during these rainy days. I get very emotional while watching. Can’t help myself. Just the thought of someone taking my daughter from me makes me paralyzed. I think the series brings up a lot of important and current matters, such as the climate change and surrogacy. In my mind, not many women would voluntarily give away the child that has been growing inside them for 9 months. It’s a bit scary how people defend surrogacy and try to claim it’s the women’s choice. I’m sure there are women who would carry a friends child by choice. But the extremely poor women in India, if they had choices like we do, they would probably choose differently. Just a few of my thoughts on a very sensitive subject.
As I told you in my last post. I’m working on Dahlias for Dahlia :) Just wanted to show you a few images that I feel inspired by.
The last couple of weeks I’ve been working on this Tiger. I know, a couple of weeks is a long time but I can only work when baby V is asleep so it takes me a while to get stuff done. This one is actually a present for a friend of mine who’s having a little baby girrl. It’s for the kids room, although they might not have one yet, but for the future. I will also be selling it as a print in my tictail shop since the original is already taken http://mwidergren.tictail.com. Next project I’ll be working on is for Dahlia (former fashion assistant at Odalisque) and her new apartment, and the motive will be dahlias. After that I have one or two more requests that I’m planning on doing before summer. Then, summer break with bae and bae.
