Fruit Cup

Today is ANZAC Day in Australia, a day when we remember those who died fighting for our country.  As usual I bawled my eyes out!  It's a subdued day, until after the dawn ceremonies, when beer flows and Two-up is played, mates on the battlefield remembered!

If you follow me on facebook you will have seen this pic already.  I love making these mosaic look paintings.  I hope you like them too!

Big Fish

Big Fish
Not the best painting in the world, but I love it anyway!

Exhausted after a big market day today!  It was a Mad Hatters Tea Party theme and the kids loved it!  I was happy to be in a different part of the market this time, away from the noisy entertainment where we used to be!  A little more peaceful, but still in the flow of people traffic.  I sold a few paintings, some of them my favorites, and was happy to be on the receiving end of many compliments about my art!

Ready for an early bedtime now, so I will say goodnight!

A Good Weekend!

Red Tree
I enjoyed painting this design!  My holiday recharged my creativity, I believe.  Daylight Savings is over, now autumn is here, so it will begin getting darker in the evenings in my part of the world.  I always look forward to a little hibernation with candles and cosy slippers, at least for the first few weeks of winter.

I went to an outdoor Youth Concert this afternoon, where my son (a guitarist) was performing Metalcore music with his band.  Pretty heavy metal/punk you could say! It was an alcohol and drug free event and luckily, was a beautiful sunny afternoon with lots of people turning out to listen.  I had a great time watching the guys in the mosh pit jumping around!

I hope you had a good weekend too!

New Discoveries!

Blossoms In The Wind

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter break, mine was a very full one, thankyou!  A visit from my daughter and lots of time for rest and relaxation and of course, painting!

Max and I went for a walk this sunny Easter afternoon and discovered a beautiful stretch of road surrounded on either side by bushland.  The air is filled with the sound of bellbirds and smells absolutely amazing!  We will be going back there for sure! Crazy that we didn't know it existed before now!

I invite you all to visit my new website Please visit my online store for paintings not featured on the rest of the website.
