Exported 2

I thought I would add the recent attempts at pastel drawing including my first landscape. None are finished simply because I don’t have the foggiest idea how to ‘finish’ them. This is why I need you to move to Peru Mum. I’m sure sedatives are available for the plane trip, yes I think as many as it would take would be available . So what do you say? Come and tell me what to do. Wow, I never thought I would say that …


Here is my first landscape. Which do you think? Including the left yellow building or excluding it altogether?

Here is the excluded version ..

No I haven’t tried oils yet. I’m procrastinating and it is taking up a lot of my time.


Sanity …. or lack thereof

I checked with both body and soul and they have concurred – my sanity is missing in action. I am desperately hoping it’s in one of the millions of boxes I packed that are currently heading towards our new home. Yes, we are moving.

In the meantime …. a digression …..

My two eldest boys seem to have contracted a syndrome called, ‘Where did I wee last night?’ The symptoms involve sleepwalking, talking gibberish, wandering from pillar to post inside the house and weeing everywhere but the toilet bowl. Actually, Austin managed to pee on the floor outside the toilet, which is an improvement from Beau who decided to explore the garage and hallway and bedroom wardrobe ….. get the drift?

Last week I woke to ‘Mum …… I’ve woken up and I’m all sticky and wet’. Further investigation revealed a squashed banana in his bed so I will add another symptom – that being, midnight snacks.

I have a hard enough time convincing them to do anything I ask when they are awake. What on earth am I do to about this one?

Buy another set of cleaning gloves it seems.

Back to the move …..

This is a photo I took on my phone while in the car just outside of Emerald QLD.

I’m going to miss these colours.
