Share Your World – 23rd Jan 2017

Technically it is Jan 24th here, but I am sure that is neither here nor there for Cee’s Share Your World Challenge

Do you prefer juice or fruit? I’m not really a huge juice fan, sometimes a lovely chilled orange or pineapple juice is wonderful, but other than that I prefer to eat the fruit, I usually eat at least a banana everyday, as I need the potassium. I also like a nice cold smoothie with milk, yogurt and fruit; banana, berries, passion fruit – yummo

Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it? I grew up in suburbia, back then it was considered outer suburbs, now that I am really living in outer suburbs what was out is now inner suburbs…ahh the urban sprawl! But I enjoyed it, it had everything we needed as kids to play, there were places to ride out bikes, hunt for tadpoles and get up to no good, in a good clean fun way! We were close to things so entertainment wasn’t an issue as we got older, and we had patches of bushland to explore. These days there really aren’t too many areas like that, especially where I grew up, it’s now all houses.

If you were to paint a picture of your childhood, what colors would you use? Mostly happy colours I guess, with some melancholic blues thrown in for good measure. I won’t say it was a perfect childhood (whose is) but it was not horrible either, there are a lot of happy memories in there, mostly due to the amount of travel we did.

Ways to Relax List: Make a list of what relaxes you and helps you feel calm. Music……that usually is the way I relax, music while I create art, shoot in the studio, setup for a shoot in the studio, in the car on the away to a shoot……I always have music. Even on the way to and from work….yes it is music. But then there are times I crave quiet, I rarely get quiet, so sometimes, when I am alone, I just sit in the quiet and meditate. And then there is the beach……..I love the sound, the smell, the salt spray on my skin….

  • Music 
  • Photography
  • Still Life
  • The Beach
  • Digital Art
  • Walking the Dog
  • Reading a book or watching a movie

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Last week………last week was a blur so I guess I am grateful for getting through it, I was really grateful on the weekend I just got time to ‘play’ with some still life stuff, not not stuff that had to be done, just stuff I wanted to do…….fun stuff.

This week……I am grateful for a lovely long weekend, I have the opening for my first exhibit on Friday night, if any of you are in Melbourne, and would like to visit, please stop in and say Hi……I’d love to see you.

I guess that’s about it for now, I have rambled on enough.
