better late than never?

Poor old neglected Blog. Unfortunately 2016 wasn't the healthiest of years for me. However now I'm back in the world ... and more importantly back in the studio.

Health and wellbeing are getting my focus for 2017 - not blogging. So if you're interested in paintings then it's probably best to follow my Instagram feed instead "clareyoungdesign".

This little Blog will continue to stay on pause for a while.

back to school

Miss Audrey doesn't like it when everyone goes back to school. The truth is... I don't like it much either.

But it's a quiet day, time to find my quiet mind and back to my studio and painting again...with Audrey asleep by my feet.

forager's feast

Just yum. Baking Blackberry pie with the babes from my favourite, favourite book 'A Table in the Orchard' written by Michelle Crawford at Hugo and Elsa. Just yum.

time out

Got a bit overwhelmed with the pressure associated with painting lots of commissions recently.

Getting my groove back by having drawing days mixed with painting some small still lives. Being mindful, appreciating the small things. Taking time.

After much success with our vertical herb garden we've expanded into vegetables.

Amazingly rewarding though truly a labour of love tackling the caterpillars and possums... and who knew that dogs loved strawberries? Audrey's been staking out the strawberry bed and making short work of the ripe ones before we get to them.

Self-sufficiency is probably a bit ambitious but home grown salads every night are definately worth it.

hmmm... perhaps it's time for chickens?
