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.....
