Open Studios Time – Day 29 Inktober 2017

Mundaring Hills Open Studios 2017 was held over the weekend.  We enjoyed meeting artists, admired their work and envied their studios.  We met artists working with glass, clay, paint, found objects and more. We particularly fell for the work of Silvano Ferrario and Bernard Kerr – but we only made it to five out of 18 studios.

A sketch inspired by Bernard and Jenny Kerr’s teapot and a linocut by Tina Bryce represents my day 29 of Inktober 2017.


Show Time! – Day 28 Inktober 2017

It was show time at Gidgiegannup on day 28 – with 6 good friends.  Lots of exhibits, lots of stalls, lots of food, lots of chat and lots of laughs!

Always a good opportunity to buy local produce.

That Time Of The Week – Day 27 Inktober 2017

It’s that time of the week – Friday finds us busy on household tasks again as there won’t be time for such things over the weekend, again! How lucky we are!

Reversing Time – Day 26 Inktober 2017

If you go back in time you’ll find that Gazanias, common in Australia today, originated from South Africa. Now they are regarded as noxious weeds in some states – a case of wrong time, wrong place.

I go back in time whenever I do the housework – I have a strong sense of deja vu (or Groundhog Day?) and many items take me back as I clean them, so I get to enjoy again precious moments with loved ones.

I work hard to find happiness in repetitive chores!


Ad Infinitum – Day 23 Inktober 2017

I spent significant time on day 23 trying to catch up with Inktober – as ever – ad infinitum.

I decided to sketch my work area.   I soon realized that I would need to draw what I was seeing in ever diminishing size to be correct – hence the infinity symbol.

The Red Iris is there for hope and strength!
