Welcome to the blog of Melanie McDonald ! I'm a professional artist, my life is divided between my home in Newquay, Cornwall and my renovation project - an 18th Century farm - in North Brittany, France. My inspiration comes from the beautiful beaches, skies and seas of Cornwall, Brittany and Scotland. This is where I share my paintings and photographs, I hope it inspires you.

You are my daughter.

You are my daughter, you were born
So innocent, so full of need
There were times we were friends but times I was so distant
Each night I'd watch over you as you went to sleep
Before I was so afraid of the night
You seemed to take away the places that I feared
You lived inside my world so softly
Protected only by the courage that is your nature
You are my daughter
And I love you
May all of your dreams come true
We were so different then
So similar over the years
The way we laugh the way we experience pain
So many memories
And theres everything to gain from remembering
Faces and worlds that no one else will ever know
You are my daughter
And I love you
May all of your dreams come true
I want this for you
They're gonna come true (gonna come true)

Poem for Skye who was nine last week. (Cribbed with words changed from the fantastic Antony and the Johnsons - 'You are my Sister').
