Irises and strelizia

These Irises are nearly over in the garden and there have been a succession of strelizia flowers.
we have been cool but a bit humid down here, in the low 20's while Adelaide has been in the 30's all week, and we are only about 50 kms away. Amazing, and lovely for us.
I have been so busy getting ready for Christmas, I make a lot of my presents (jewelery for the girls) but there are never enough and as it gets closer I have more to do.
We went out to dinner for the Business Association Awards last night, it was a 60's theme so I hauled out my mothers old wrap around Marimekko skirt, it looked great although it didnt fit as well as it once did! The date on the skirt material was 1967.

Okay, I had to look up Marimekko and pictures came up of gorgeous fabrics. Oh those were the years of wrap-arounds! At a book launch gig this week for oldies - winners of a writing comp. a guitar player sang 'Those were the days my friend' and had 'em all toe-tapping. One good thing lovely fabrics are back in fashion it seems.

This is a lovely drawing! I'm impressed with the vase as well as the contrast in texture of the irises.

Thank you for visiting my Blog and commenting on my art challenge. I don't think I'm going to be able to get one done because of my watercolour class homework. But at least I am making art!
