Art house Sketchbook pages


I am very slowly getting stuff into this, the first are some quince blossoms, the tree in the orchard is covered in blossom this year so I hope we can make quince paste again, the first time in several years.
the second is of the scarab dung beetles that are around at the moment, I dont know what the scanner did but he has red legs, not purple ones. they are quite lovely and bumble into the windows at night.
A pleasant day, John off to more meetings in Adelaide. I had a couple who want a peacock, but I did explain that mine are more or less wild and fend for themselves but I will see if I can catch some chicks when the time comes.
This haiku by Shiki could almost be about the quince, but the plums are in flower too.
Evening moon

plum blossom falling.

Hi Penny,

I love your sketchbook so far! What is your theme? Mine is below the Surface.

Have you start to add images to your portfolio on the Art house site.

Here is my link to the site - I have some of my pages there.

Would you send me your link? Or if you go and look at my page you can add me as a friend. I would love that!
