feeling grateful

'The earth laughs in flowers.' Emerson

Painting outside on a perfect Sydney day to the smell of all the jasmine in bloom. Lucky me.

"I really like it mummy, except for the 2 potato people up in the top corner, I really don't like them." Everyone should live with 10 & 12 year old art critics, they have the best eyes and nail it every time.

Today's project... deleting the potato people and finishing off the final layer of these two blues for a very dear long time friend.

quiet lights

Back in primary school when all I painted was ballet shoes and rabbits (quite seriously, for 2 years), Libby Stock emphatically told me that all paintings looked better if you added white to all the colours… and so I was converted (for a time) to being a 100% pastel artist… as I admired everything Libby did.

So here is ‘Quiet lights’ inspired by ballet shoes and this beautiful pendant light ‘Shape Up’ by Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, Seattle.

spring in our garden

'She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
Winter is dead.'
A.A. Milne - When We Were Very Young
