Mosaic: Water Lily
November 27, 2013


This is the second of the series of transparent mosaics.

I was a bit disappointed with the result as the shape of the water lily does not stand out from the background.

I included too many colours in the background rather than choose one colour, green or blue, to provide the contrast which was needed to provide definition for the flower shape.


‘Tranquillo’ – A town garden
November 6, 2013


This is something new for me – a post featuring photographs of an open garden I visited recently here in Castlemaine.

It is the season for open gardens in this region and ‘Tranquillo’ is one of six I visited over two days during the week.

‘Tranquillo’ is in a street near where I live and has been created on a rocky block of land backing onto Forest Creek.

The money raised from the entrance fee, sale of plants and cakes and biscuits will be used to support Chewton swimming pool. This local small public facility is only being kept open through strong community support.

I hope you enjoy the photographs.
