This sketch of a corner of my lounge room, I created a couple of years ago. It was done in the evening, by lamplight. So there are sharp contrasts between the dark shadows and light. I don't usually make art at night because my eyesight is not so good in the evenings (esp not in lamplight), but the mood took me and I quite liked the result.
On the homefront there has been lots of work happening in the garden - weeding, mulching, potting and pruning. The weather has been sensational (up until todays rain) and it has been a pleasure being out in the sunshine, stretching and breathing in the smells of the earth and plants.
I am looking forward to my weekend when I will get to catch up with my ENTIRE family. We are all attending a reunion organised by my Aunts and Uncles. It will be the first time in ages that my sisters and brother and I have all been together in the same place at the same time. Amazing.
Not much art happening lately as I have been giving time to the garden and other domestic chores. But my painting course is going well and I have recently purchased some artist quality paints, moving away from 'playing' with student quality. This is part of my plan to evolve into a serious artist. Seriously.
