If anyone outside of Australia watched the final then they might be forgiven for not realising that it was being played in Australia. The heavens opened and people wore ponchos to help protect themselves from the elements. It was COLD!
Look what I found on our patio table yesterday....its a different sort of water feature, and shows just how much rain we had.
Talk about a floating candle!
That's rain water.....over half way up
But today I'm as excited as some of those footy fans because this week is the week I'm determined to get sorted in the studio. I've started to round up the brushes and paints etc so its a start. My stomach does a little flip when I think I might actually get something done, but I haven't a clue what that might be yet.
I'll prepare everything and stretch the silk and see what happens....
I have a box of brushes that I haven't found yet...but I'm hoping they're here somewhere and not vamooshed like a few other things during the house move. The brushes I'm particularly interested in are my Chinese brushes....three in a box.
Below are two other works I did a few years ago. The Chinese symbols represent the four seasons and also health, prosperity and love - I hope, if I remember rightly. It was a few years back, so please forgive me if I'm wrong.
If you click on the photo above to enlarge it, then you will see that I even wrote my name using the Chinese symbols. A Chinese friend later told me as she looked stunned when she saw it, that part of my name actually has the symbol for silk in it. Does that meant its meant to be?
Now for inspiration....any ideas anyone??? Shout up???? I need all the help I can get....
