Any comments welcome.

Pardalote songs


My first entry for Illustration Friday.


I like the Anais Nin Quote one of the members uses as her sig line. This is done with watercolour pastels and pen. I haven't got the full bloom looking quite right but I do like how the page turned out.

Orange blocks

I did not like this page at all.... Once I had written in the blocks I changed my mind.

I really love the colours on this page. First I was going to write about 'what bugs me', but then when I got back to the page I was in a more positive mood and the bee showed me the way.


I was bored while waiting for my husband to return to our cabin we were staying in so I had a try at drawing the kitchen cupboards. There was a beautiful old building over the road from our cabin that I wanted to try and sketch but I was too embarassed to go outside. I did take a digipic to copy later on.

Another day with Daisy. I was not feeling well today and the last thing I felt like doing was wait 'Hand & Foot' on a demanding seven year old. Of course I would never really feed my Darling 'Dais' To those nasty old crocs. Boy I was stuffed after today.


I have a large collection of Berol Prismacolours which I would use to draw my doll faces with. This is really the first time I have used them on paper, they are the most gorgeous pencil to draw with.........Yummy.

Just practising

I am trying to do a drawing a day so that I become better at it.

Out My Kitchen Window

All the things I can see out my kitchen window. I have three large windows here and then glass doors and another ceiling to floor window, I see bush all around.

Postcard from Annie

A postcard from Barcelona. I would have loved to have seen this scene in the flesh.


Spent the day with Daisy.....

French Manicure

My youngest daughter is a Beauty Therapist and she does my nails for me. Around my hand I have written some of the lyrics to Jewel's song 'Hands'.

Decorated July.

I downloaded this free from the net and then made it to my own liking. When I want to remember something to do in my journal and I haven't the time I note it on the date and then I can do a page when I have more time.
