Walks around the neighbourhood

We are tending to take more notice on our one hour of exercise a day structure in Melbourne for now.

I keep finding treasure in the many gardens and such adorable little and biggish homes I pass. Homes that must be filled with a vast array of stories that could fill a book. I think these little homes and gardens are exuding warmth, cosy and love in buckets; I feel it as I pass by.

I’ve picked flowers (trying to be discreet) from these blooming gardens and have started the process of pressing them in many old books.

What joy I am making with my miniature artworks and pressed flowers that eventually will be selected so methodically with my tiny tweezers to frame with this little series of local home studies. You may recognize your beautiful home over this series.

I will let you know when these are in my shop for a piece of history you may collect. x

setting up still lifes

Not the best photo but I love the challenge in setting up a still life. This was a tonal work sitting pots on an old table with original wiring running along the wall in a very old house.  The Grace (Mitchell) poster is the original owner of this house and it holds such a special place in the local Eltham community.
