Share Your World – 19th June 2018

You can have an unlimited supply of one thing for the rest of your life, what is it? Sushi? Scotch Tape? Sushi – hell no! Scotch Tape? What on earth would I do with Scotch Tape? Now Chocolate? Money? Coffee? Mmmm tough one. An unlimited supply of chocolate would probably be disastrous. Coffee? I pretty…

Tuesday Textures – Art of Tasmania

After I finally got through a quick edit of most of the photos from our trip to Tasmania, I went back and re-edited a few images, giving a more painterly feel and in the case of Bridestowe, adding some lavender, which was sadly missing when we visited. I really wanted the keep the warmth and…

Monday Musings…

I had a fairly quiet weekend by all accounts, I did paint a rather large canvas backdrop for an upcoming workshop, it was arduous and time-consuming, but I think hopefully worth it, my aching muscles still do not quite agree! I also made a full-length tulle skirt, for the same workshop and probably many others…

We have not been for nearly three years, and it’s quite astounding how much my photography has improved since our last visit, check out my post from way back then. I seemed to capture fairly similar images, it is not an overly large place and…

Some hard-hitting questions from Cee this week for SYW, I had to take a little extra time to think about these ones, thanks Cee, great topics. If you could choose any person from history to be your imaginary friend, who would it be and why? That’s a tough one, it would need to be someone creative,…

Tuesday’s Textures…

They often tell me I am Brave and Creative and Imaginative, and perhaps I am. But I often just see myself as inquisitive,  but shy and scared. “Fear is the Dream Killer” – Seth Godin  This is so true, there were times when I did not do something because I feared people would ridicule me,…
