Mixed Media: Fantasy
September 24, 2013

DSCN2534I created this picture at a workshop conducted by Ann Bidstrup of Heart Art.

The picture is on canvas and combines paint, fabric, threads and beads which were painted, fused, glued and stitched.

I think it is a sunny, happy picture.



Collage: Dancing in the Rainbow
September 14, 2013


Dancing in the rainbow

Our bodies smile with joy

Our hearts sing their delight

Blissfully, we are united in the dance.

Dancing in the Rainbow is one of the Qi Gong exercises we do in the final 15 minutes of the Tai Chi for Arthritis class I attend. It is one of my favourite exercises.


In this picture which combines collage and drawing, I have depicted my old friend and companion, Spotty, who died on the 24th of July.



Perhaps one day, we will be united in the dance once more.


  A new canine companion has entered my life and so, I commence my journey with Katie.


I have included this card, which was given to me by a friend on my 60th birthday, as it has a rainbow and I laughed when I read it.


Max’s rug
September 7, 2013


The black crochet intensifies the bright colours of this rug. I knitted and crocheted to make the blocks in each row.

I liked including the novelty yarns in this rug.

My nephew, Max, who likes bright colours appreciated this gift. He used the rug as a play mat as well as something to keep him warm in bed.
