Two new works on my Gallery 1 page

I’ve added my two latest works to my Gallery 1 page. You can view them here.

Another little painting

Finished another painting yesterday…a very tiny one. I’ve called it “Profusion”, as an expression of the abundant growth here on the mountain. There’s a lot of movement in this work, and this also expresses the energy of growth. The red/orange background colour is very similar to the colour of the earth in my garden. Greens and yellows echo the local plant life which has a grand lushness to it.

Art from the mountain

I’ve been creating some more artworks today, taking some time out from the garden. A newly finished piece is “Green retreat”,¬†expressing the mood and sense of “green” overwhelm that living here on the mountain induces. The presence of the lush local rainforest and garden landscape is all surrounding…its green abundance and cicadas singing outside is the ever present energy. Pinks and yellows act as contrast and are a nod to the flowering trees and plants that accompany the green.

This painting is acrylic paint on stretched linen and is ready to hang. It measures 76×76 cm. and is priced at $1070 AUD. Enquires can be made here.

Burleigh Heads visit

Last week we had a quick beach visit down to Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast. It was a lovely day and the ocean was stunning in its blues and turquoise. I took pics of the beach and from the headland car park. After that there’s a walk up to the headland but we didn’t go this time.

Our own hybrid!

We have some hibiscus plants in bloom…most surprising is one plant that has bright pink flowers, pale yellow flowers and some stripey mutations! There are two seperate plants nearby, one with pale yellow flowers, the other with bright pink. So some interbreeding has happened…beautiful! The photo with two flowers…well they’re actually on the same branch…Amazing.

Christmas greetings

Wishing every one of my followers, and everyone in the blogosphere a wonderful Christmas season and happy holidays!…here’s a Christmas Waratah mandala greeting for you.

Update to Gallery 3

I’ve updated my Gallery 3 with two new mandala wall art pieces…take a peek!

Christmas mandalas

I’ve completed some Christmas mandalas...just for fun. For the Jacobean Lily mandala I used photos of my flowering Jacobean lily…red and green and Christmassy. The Crystal Christmas lights mandala is based on my photos of crystals and skies. Both have special “light” backgrounds to reflect the mood of the season. Hope you enjoy them!

Exciting tree

A tree is flowering in our front yard. I have no clue what it is, but it’s probably a local rainforest tree. It smells like honey. The clumps of flowers are lush, and the colour a vibrant golden yellow. Insects adore the tree….a wonderful inspiration for any creative activity. Hope you enjoy the pics…pardon the rain smudge on the second image!

Gardening

Loving the weather lately….good for gardening and planting. I’ve purchased quite a few things and am creating gardens now where they can happily grow.
