I hope to record what I see and sketch on my daily walks around my home in Rural South Australia

Having fun mono printing with a gelli plate
These are only two of a few prints I pulled this morning using an old credit card and possibly too many colours of paint. 4 to 5 instead of 3 but I am quite pleased with them.
I tend to cut them up and then paste them into small accordion books, it is such fun and no two are alike.
John is fishing today, I was supposed to be going to pick plums at a friends place but on backing out and getting half way down the drive found I had a flat tyre, so all my lovely plans for today have gone awry. Well sort of as I did do the gelli printing and I did manage to vacuum the house in between watching winter Olympic re runs (not going to stay up all night to watch the real thing!)
I think all up we have had about 25 ml over the last few days, really lovely but... always a but, two of the little mares are out there with sore feet, it doesnt take much of a pick of green grass to set them off. The kikuyu grass freshens with only the tiniest bit of rain and as it has been relatively warm and humid as well it it growing like mad.
Off to feed the dogs and perhaps give Max a small run as its not quite so muddy underfoot.
