Hello friends from a very soggy Brisbane today. It's poured all night and I for one enjoyed snuggling down listening to the rain on the roof. I put wild birdseed out each morning for the Pale-headed Rosellas that visit me each day. This morning a pair of hooligans aka Rainbow Lorikeets who also drop by were waiting on the railing for me.....looking like a couple of drowned, limp feather dusters.....they hopped right up the other end whilst I placed the seed out and once they were sure I was inside the door they enjoyed a hearty breakfast. Hence the poor photo. I do love them....they are such clowns.

Hello friends. It is a perfect Autumn day here in my little pocket of the subtropics.

All Things Arty Part Two
This week I was very fortunate to attend a botanical eco dyeing workshop on paper with @kimherringe up in the beautiful township of Maleny.
Our family friend and fellow artist Alan came with me. He and his partner have a beautiful home overlooking the Samford Valley....and what a view! I was very spoilt with a delicious dinner as well.
All things Arty Part One
Good morning. This post and the next are mostly art related so if it's not your thing I shall understand if you scroll on by. I thought firstly that I would share the process I went through from beginning to end with one of my drawings and then I shall share a wonderful experience I had with paper dyeing in the next post.
Well the first thing I do is work out my composition roughly to make sure its going to be pleasing to the eye.
