IN THE GARDEN...





WELL FINALLY...THE RAINS ARE HERE! ITS BEEN SO DRY AND EVEN THO I'VE BEEN WATERING, THERE'S NOTHING QUITE LIKE RAIN TO MAKE THE GARDEN GROW. THE WATERMELON VINES HAVE BEEN A SUCCESS WITH A TOTAL OF 9 WATERMELONS GROWING! THE MIZUNA HAS BEEN A STAPLE IN OUR SALADS NOW AND I'M PLANNING A BIG PESTO MAKING DAY SOON WITH ALL OF THAT BASIL...THE WHITE MOTHS HAVE ABSOLUTELY DEMOLISHED MY CABBAGES AND SUMMER BROCCOLI AND HAVE EVEN HAD THEIR TIME WITH MY KALE SO I'M DEVISING A NET TO PUT OVER THEM FOR THE NEXT PLANTING. SPINACH IS LOOKING GLORIOUS AND ACE JUST HELPED ME PLANT THE LAST OF THE CUCUMBER SEEDLINGS....AHHHHH GROW GARDEN GROW! X

PAINTING THERAPY



AFTER A WEEK OF TOO MUCH COMPUTER TIME, I DECIDED TO BREAK OUT MY ACRYLICS AND START PAINTING....VERY THERAPEUTIC AND DIFFERENT TO MY USUAL INKS AND PENCIL WORK. I REALLY REALLY ENJOYED THIS!!!

ANIMAL INK SERIES....BEAR


I'VE STARTED A NEW SERIES INSPIRED BY THE LITTLE HUMANS IN MY LIFE, AN INK SERIES OF ANIMAL SILHOUETTES. SPENDING SO MUCH TIME WITH KIDS REALLY CAN BRING OUT YOUR 'INNER CHILD'. EACH KID HAS A FAVOURITE ANIMAL, A SPIRIT TOTEM I LIKE TO SAY. SO IN HONOUR OF THESE SOULS, I AM PAINTING THEIR TOTEMS. THE FIRST, IS A BEAR. MY LITTLE BOWIE MOON.

IN THE GARDEN THIS MONTH






WELL WE HAVE HAD A VERY BOUNTIFUL HARVEST THIS MONTH, LOTS OF SWEET CRISP BEANS (BOWIE'S FAVOURITES) AND THE FUNNIEST LOOKING CARROTS (ORANGE AND PURPLE) EVERY SEEN...ACE THOUGHT THE LOGICAL PLACE TO PUT ONE WAS ON HIS HEAD. I AGREED. I HAVE STARTED EMPTYING OUT THE GARDEN BOXES AND SIDE GARDEN TO PLANT.....TOMATOES, MORE KALE, MORE SPINACH, CUCUMBERS AND I'M ALSO HAVING A GO AT WATERMELON! MORE ON THIS SOON.....

WEDDING PRESENT



OUR BEAUTIFUL FRIENDS SHANE AND MONIQUE JUST GOT MARRIED AND FOR ONCE I GOT MY SHIT TOGETHER AND DID A PAINTING AS A PRESENT (I ALWAYS HAVE GOOD INTENTIONS BUT TIME KEEPS RUNNING AWAY FROM ME IN THE ART GIFT GIVING WORLD). SO IT WAS VERY SATISFYING TO DO, WATERCOLOUR AND INKS AS USUAL, I AM ABOUT TO START PAINTING IN ACRYLICS FOR MY KINDRED FOUND STALL AT SEW AND TELL IN BANGALOW SO PERHAPS I MIGHT JUMP OVER TO ACRYLICS FOR A WHILE...
