I greeted this Monday, Day 30 of Inktober 2017, happily – it was an opportunity to recover from the various excesses of a very social and active weekend! The chamomile flower in my sketch represents energy in adversity – much needed!
Thank Goodness Its Monday – Day 30 #Inktober #Inktober2017
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.
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.
Reversing Time – Day 26 #Inktober #Inktober2017
I work hard to find happiness in repetitive chores!
