A little information...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am currently caring for my sick mother and so, while I have uploaded some past works my new work will likely be slow in coming.

While life is not exactly the way I planned it right now, I wouldn't choose to be anywhere else.

I have created this blog to remind me, in the meantime, of who I am and what it is that I 'do'.

I hope you enjoy my 'stuff' as much as I enjoy yours.

Have a lovely day!

Yep, we all know where the 'inspiration' for this one came from.
Another mum painting

Watercolour and pastel
on paper

This was a 'copy' of one of Susan Seddon Boulet's artworks.
I absolutely love that woman's art!
I used water colour washes, chalk and oil pastel and acrylic here, she uses oil pastels I believe.
Anyway, I did it for mum, because she loved the painting too and it was a fun experiment.
But a COPY okay :)
Not my original work.
I think I've made that clear enough now, given all the copyright stuff going on lately!

These two were heavily influenced by some works I found in a really old chinese watercolour book. I don't know what happened to the book, I think I loaned it to someone who never returned it, most annoying.
So, unfortunately I can't tell you the name of the book or the artist.

These are watercolour and chalk pastel on paper
and they hang in mum's house, not to be sold.

Goddess Drum

(sorry about the shine)

I used to make drums and paint them

I may make them again one day, but I doubt it

The next few images shown here will be of some of these drums

They even sound great too!
