The Magic Snake

This snake did not spend much time on my wall before my brother took him home for my nephew bedroom. I can feel a childrens' story coming on. Stay tuned...

I have reached a point in my creativity where I want to change direction, develop a new painting style, still using lots of colour, but different somehow. It's hard to explain what I mean exactly, its simply an urge that I have to evolve a little further and try something new. So I have had a break from painting and will follow my instincts, going back to basics - sketching, drawing, laying down ideas in a journal, making a map to follow, so to speak. I'll let you know how I go.

I had a lovely day Op Shopping yesterday - purchased a green 'as new' windcheater with hood ($7.00), a pretty bowl that I took a liking to ($0.50c!) and a summer top in the most beautiful deep turquoise (my colour) with a little embroidery at the front ($6.00), can't wait for summer to come so I can wear it. I just love the concept of donating money to charity to receive recycled clothing and 'stuff' - everybody wins!


  1. I just love your paintings ... they are so uniquely you ... bright vibrant colours and an indigenous feel!

    I can't wait to see what you do next!

  2. I'm not sure if this will be comment #2 from me or not...the other one seemed to dissapear into the void!

    I really love your paintings Patti...they are so vibrant and bold. I can understand your need to move in another direction, try new techniques etc. as I've been feeling the same way. I think it's a good thing to always be pushing our boundaries, learning new things and having new experiences. Good luck with it!

  3. He looks like a friendly, slightly cheeky snake - just like Tom!

  4. hello thank you very much for your comment:) I would love to see your own answers for virtual circle:)

    have a nice weekend

  5. Great snake, I love it too - good luck with your `journey'. I think you are looking for `true north' and you will get there but part of the pleasure is the journey.

  6. Definitely a magic snake!

    I shop the charity shops too, bringing in what I don't use anymore and trading it for something new to me.

    Thanks for coming by my site to comment.


please share a thought......
