work in progress . friday


i had some time to paint today, and these are 2 of 3 that i'm working on. i have to say i'm really enjoying my new paints! these are on heavy cotton paper. and they have titles!
1. we think outloud 2. just what i think {not always black and white}. they are about communication and how we can know each other so well that we can almost read thoughts.

am pleased that 2 of the prints i donated sold through the OzBushfireAppeal shop. small steps i know but i'm anxious to contribute something. my husband has raised a bit more than $1500 at work which is great.

a kid/mum moment that was priceless to me happened last week when we were sheltering from the intense heat in a cafe in the city {not realising what was happening in country areas}. we bought our 4 year old a green lego car and were putting it together – it was more of a dad/son task, i was moving pieces around making some kind of image with the pieces that were not so ugly {tricky as it was a kelly green racing car with black and red highlights}. my son looked over and said 'ooh, i like what you're doing there with those pieces. it looks just like some of your work'. u can picture how happy that made me!

hope you are having/about to have a great friday :)

hi belinda...i love where these are going. they seem a bit softer than your last few pieces and i really like the fluidity they have. you're moment made me smile too (and you may as well give into the lego beast now...it's appeal is too much for little guys to resist).

What a sweet story, these works are gorgeous and it's great you have raised some money for the appeal through the sale of your work.
