Australian Style


Merry Christmas Everyone! Cheers & Cool Beers! Actually, I have cracked open the champagne
and I am going to put my feet up and watch a good old movie!






Home I came to an aubergine stack for lunch "yummmmmyyyy!" An sat out by the dam to enjoy!



Not wanting too much sun ... I did get a little kissing glow ... I headed back up the Mountain and into a fine Christmas Day misty rain ... beautiful.
I stopped along the way to smell the roses just by the Glasshouse Mountains.


Then with my little packed esky with my breakfast I did what most Australian do and headed for the coast for a quick dip in the ocean. In this instance it was the Pacific Ocean. I swam for an hour & a quarter ... that was enough for me. Dried off, got out of the sun and ate my brekky.

Then I took a long stroll along the beach for another hour or so.





Then I visited Janna Pameijer's cows ... are they not the most adorable cows you have ever seen?




It was ten past seven in the morning and I have never seen the town soooo eerily quiet.
The Upfront Club never looks like this and neither does the RSL!


... and headed into Maleny Town.



I hopped in my little car ...





After opening lots of lovely gifts ...

A picture story of Christmas Day

Wonderful to speak with family and friends on this special family day of the year ...
... there were lots of tears and laughter.



...'tis the night before Christmas
and all through the tiers
my wish to you all is ....
Cheers & Cold Beers!

Gem in another hat!

The Dream Series





I know I have been slack with posting, I have however been busy with the new Dream Series. There are 9 works on paper and some on canvas. They are all destined for the Calligraphy Southscribes exhibition at the Hazelhurst Gallery in Sydney in January 2010. Wish me luck with the sales!

Now to get on to some works for the Toowoomba Sunday Market!
