Some Humour For Supper..

I found these on the net today, and a bit of humour never goes astray. I hope you enjoy them. I’ve just been sitting here with my usual coffee (didn’t get my decaffienated yet)  and looking through some of the joke sites. Some are so good, the sense of humour some people have is wonderful.

This one not so humorous really, they need to put the poor cat on a diet.

Not meant to be confusing is this?

Unfinished Pastel Paintings.

Finally back to my blog and some paintings, these two have just started a few days ago and hope to finish them this weekend. They are of The Flinders Ranges areas in South Australia,  I have been doing some miniature oils of the red centre in this style and decided to do some of the Flinders after the same style and colours, abstracty. I love the colours we have through the centre and outback of Australia, so vibrant and earthy.

I got my airconditioner installed the other day, naturally the weather turned as soon as I got it and heaters came back out, but I will take the colder weather any day over the heat But wow, what a thought, to know there will be some respite for the next lot of heatwaves we have.  The weather really knocked me for awhile, (getting too old for it, haha,)  and was so good to start with the pastels again.

I’ve made an early New Years Resolution to myself, to take out an unfinished art piece each day and add a bit more to it until its completed.  Now all I have to do is stick to it,  a bit more self discipline is needed.

Have just been looking through a few blogs, and an apology to people who have left comments and not had an answer I hope I have answered all and not missed any. Thank you so much for stopping by. Also have a few more to catch up on reading.

Graphite and Oils.

We’re in a heatwave at the moment ( and its not even summer yet, winge winge, groan) and haven’t been doing much art at all the last few days.  Seems every flying bug on earth has found my place soon as I turn the lamp on and bring the oils out.  There is a small tear in the flyscreen and one on the flywire door.  The other night it was a constant fight to scoop them out of the oil paint with my pallette knife, but their wings kept getting left behind, so think the oil painting will probably have some of them in it, I hope not.  I HATE SUMMER. Feel better now.thru nightthe elusive butterfly The Oil “Through The Night”, Abstract 6×6″, and “Searching for Butterflys” is 6×4″. Hope your cool and no bugs. Time to start buying salads and cold meats again

far too hot to cook.  I pray all the firebugs have gone to Iceland, after last summers  inferno,  it kind of scares me they’ll come out of the woodwork again. My thoughts and prayers are still with those who were forced to endure that.

New Painted ACEO’S

Popped another couple of ACEO’s  I’ve done over the last few days,these were done in oils with a palette knife. Something I am only just learning to work with.

ab vase flow Tomorrow must learn how to add a shopping cart on my site.  Don’t think there’s any great difficulty in it, hope not any ways.  Sales at ebay for some reason have just gone?  totally, with only 3 in the last 3 weeks, after sailing along nicely it came to a crunching halt the same time as my computer was hacked and crashed, the same day.   I can’t understand how over night like that something can stop so abruptly.  Its wierd.

I spent a night or two going through some of the other art blogs here on wordpress, thoroughly enjoyable, and getting to see some pretty awesome artworks also.

I’m trying to save up for some heavy duty watercolour paper, a couple of brushes,  and hope to try some watercolour paintings soon,  haven’t done any watercolour for a long time, and I certainly am no where near mastering it, but will be fun any way.

Hello and welcome to my blog. My blog is about art,  paintings, drawings,  ACEO’s which are quite addictive, they measure 2.5 by 3.5 inches, miniature artworks.  I love collecting and making them.

I have sold my art both locally and overseas, Europe, U.S.A.  England, and Korea.  These are a couple of ACEO’s,  two in oils with a palette knife, one in oil pastels, and the gumflowers in coloured pencils.

Thank you for looking, I will be adding more a little later, I hope you enjoy your visit here.
