Painted today

I have not had the urge to paint much lately but here I have the time and I have enjoyed playing with this. The trees on this part of the Island for these lovely arches over the road and in doing so you can find so many colours.I hope all readers of this blog have a Happy and relaxing Christmas.

Agapanthus in a Chinese vase

I think I paint a variant of this every year while we are over here on Kangaroo Island for Christmas. Our holiday rental doesn't have a lot of vases but this one endures. With the fierce heat we have been having not many flowers either, but I did find three agapanthus heads. We arrived over here on Saturday, in the midst of terribly hot weather and have not done a lot. Today is cool, overcast and windy. John's 78th birthday so having had a lovely beach walk this morning, now listening to Bryn Terfel Christmas album we are off to the pub tonight. we will walk.All very relaxing, just what we need, it's been a busy year. George is enjoying it too.

Using my Gelli plate

I had fun the other day making backgrounds using my gelli plate, then I wondered what to do with them and as I am in a bird mood at the moment I decided to draw up a few bird shapes and cut them out. This is one I have put onto a canvas. I am having fun with these.
