Fighting My Way Through That................


The passion is there, knowing what direction to take is a different matter............



And just when I needed it most, Ira Glass has this wonderful piece of advice to keep me on my creative journey - http://omeleto.com/188186/
So I will knuckle down and put the "miles on my paintbrushes" where my work matches my ambition.
Happy creating :)

The Mystery of Water...................

There is inspiration stirring and the message may be coming from water......


deep water


calm water


dark water


clear water


reflective water


water lilies


so I dabble in my studio, reading "The Hidden Messages of Water", trying to find the message....



Maybe its in the Water crystals.....

All these lovely water holes are easily spotted while driving along Mt Mee Road from Dayboro to Mt Mee......

Just Getting it Done.......

Thanking Elizabeth Gilbert this week for helping me to "Just Get it Done".

The result, 2 possible submissions for the Belle Arti 2014 Art Exhibition.



"Sweet Mother Earth"

"Goodnight World"
Mixed Media
35cm x 35cm

For something a little different, I made some whimsical signs for a close friends recent wedding. My favourite - "Happily Ever After Starts Here".

The signs were perfect for the magical setting, including a dance floor set amongst the mist in the mountains at Montville.

In the Studio.......

So its been a while between posts, life gets busy, but its a good life and I love what keeps me busy......


I love this daughter of mine, she grows every day in confidence and skill and I am so blessed to have her and be a part of her amazing life journey....
and I am never lonely as I have this gorgeous loyal dog, who shadows me and loves me unconditionally....
and I have this amazing son of mine, who has grown into daredevil adventure loving teenager.....
There is still magic happening in the studio, perhaps a little slower these days but enough to nurture my passion...

I have just added these new pieces for display and sale at the Dayboro Art Gallery
and am experimenting with a few Klimt inpired pieces which are fun

Little Bit of Inspiration......






Somtimes all it takes is finding the time to walk around your own backyard.....


And a little bit of magic happens in the studio.....

(These will be framed and on display for sale at the Dayboro Art Gallery in the next couple of weeks).
