New Year Wishes
Well the new year has started, and here is my first effort for the year. I’m hoping the next 12 month’s lends itself to a creative happy one! My resolution – if any, is to really let my artistic juices flow more. To quit over- thinking it and just do it!

At any rate, I do hope you all have a marvelous New Year and that you achieve all your hopes and dreams. xo

Well I’m at work, and it’s pretty slow today. Okay I could possibly find something to do, something very very boring… and this day is dragging on and ON…

So I thought I’d have a scribble. I am loving these photographs by Peter Doyle.. To view the photo’s which inspired this, visit

Rather glad it’s Friday… looking forward to a few bundy rums and a movie, relax and let it all hang out with the hubby. We’re apparently going to watch that latest Star Trek movie, the one where Kirk gets dragged into the Star Fleet kicking and screaming as a young man… I rather liked it, but i’m a big Treky fan 🙂

Anyhow.. hope you all have a good one !

The latest painting in the visual diary…

Rebecca Von Shmoozle-Housen was the wife of the dashing and handsome Mining magnate George Genxaiver.  He made his billions working hard in the silver mines of Monchent in Northern Western Australia.  He had been married 3 times previously, but found true love with Rebecca.  They met at the local Milk Bar in  the spring of 2003.  She was buying cat food for her hairless cat Bobby…he was buying cigarettes.

George bumped into her as he reached across the counter to pick out his favourite brand –  Bronzenton.  It was love at first site.  They are expecting their first child in March 2004.

Well I painted up my Calendar girl Betty. I started out by using water colour pencils which I decided I didnt like, then begun using my water colour paints.. and it started getting a little murkey. Oh well, she sorta came out okay.. I think I prefer the simple pencil version to this end one though.

I’m happy with her hands, which I usually have trouble with… forcing myself to attempt fingers and hands more, in different ways, so i get past them looking like weirdy stumpy things. lol

Yes I should put more effort into my drawings…. i’m so impatient with things. I need to get myself inspired again with all this… shame shame shame.

Anyhooo.. tonight I’m off to see the wonderous White Album concert. It should be awesome, what with Chris Cheney from The Living End, Phil Jamieson from Grinspoon, Tim Rogers from You Am I and Josh Pyke performing all those great Beatles songs.
Plus it’s my day off tomorrow.. YUM… thank god.. i already have holiday blews… pathetic i know… 1 month off and 2 days back into work.. and i’m hanging out for my day off. hah

Work sucks the end, roll credits!!

Another drawing using the tablet. The image is derived from my fav song by the Drones, Jezebel… i captured the sequence of a small toddler/child walking, it was haunting and lonely as they walked across a huge expanse alone.

The whole song has an amazing vid clip with it..not for the faint hearted though. It goes with the lyrics which are very heavy but quite awesome in it’s message.
