Well it's high time I got into some blogging as I've had such an amazing time meeting new friends at exhibitions, shows and on FB.
Sitting in my beautiful tropical garden in far north Queensland, we have King Parrots feeding from the bird feeders, some bar shouldered doves, Peaceful doves, and despite the ravages of this season's cyclones and subsequent loss of water level in our gorgeous creek, the platypusses are doing their thing...it's just the quieter time of year for them.
About to check on my bees, just became a beekeeper and am thoroughly enamoured....imagine liquid gold made by creatures oriented to the sun who dance to communicate!
Then there are the brilliant azure Ulysses butterflies, the males vying for territory, doing laps of the garden, female Cairns Birdwings looking for a safe place for her eggs....truly a paradise!
So, the pneumonia on the way out...the art room is calling, and my mind is filled with so many paintings I hardly know where to start, so excited and
Many amazing things have occurred to me during my life, but the most amazing is the gift of being able to call myself an 'artist'.
