"I'd Like To Be, Under the Sea.................."

Another friendly creature from under the sea.

I am currently working on another Bush Series painting - a moonlight grevillea, lots of green and yellow this time.

My son is on school holidays at the moment, so the house is full of kids again. I'm painting every chance I get and I'm back into Yoga, (I can't keep away!) it is essential after sitting still and focussed for a couple of hours. The garden is having its winter rest, which means I get a rest from garden chores too.

I am listening to birthday CD's - Missy Higgins latest (popular Australian talent) , Coastal Chill 07 - a compilation of laidback Australian musical talent and a Melanie album with her songs from the sixties Woodstock era. She is an acquired taste for some, but I love the raw and unusual sound of her voice, and of course I'm big on the sixties era, as you know.

Now, I am headed for the kitchen to make some meatballs and tomato sugo for dinner. They were debating on a radio show this morning about whether it was "authentically Italian" to add garlic to the tomato sugo. Me, I just love garlic, so it's going in! Ciao!


  1. I LOVE you creations ... I would kill to be able to pain like that ... I love the bright colours and sense of energy your paintings create ... if you have a show you have to invite me ... seriously I'll drive up from Canberra!

    Stay with the yoga! I let it go for awhile and wow, I noticed how it really does a body good!
