My kids rep cricket day was a hot one in Melbourne 34 degrees C.

I always have my sketch gear with me at long cricket days. I figure I get to watch but when I’ve had enough I’ll just sketch. These blokes had no idea they featured in my sketchbook ha!

It was 34 degrees in Melbourne and the game was out in a suburb called Werribee. The field was big, flat with no trees of course. Along way from home. Our team got wiped out so not through to the finals.

Aaaaaahhhhh another hot summer of cricket.

Christmas in Eltham

Without a doubt each Christmas you can hear Christmas tunes blaring from the loud speakers as the local Fireys travel up down the steep hills around residential Eltham. It’s those regular acts within the local community that bring the neighbourhood out to chat and of course wave to Santa and his firey crew on the back of the big loud red Firetruck. Luv this!

Summer hols

After finishing work today for the Christmas break I feel ready to get into my art again.

My plans for these summer hols is to paint and plein air sketch.  I have all good intentions and do feel some excitement about this idea; but time is always whizzing by at this time of the year.

Happy Christmas and enjoy your holiday break.
