I Love Shopping

PENTAX Image

This abstract is fun. My young fashionista is happily shopping in Surfers Paradise carrying large shopping bags full of trendy clothes.

Method: Oil with cold wax in many layers of paint scratched and gouged to create interest and depth.

It is not a large piece, it is only 61cm x 45cm xc 5cm.

This piece was painted for the Lethbridge Small Scale Art Awards and I was lucky enough to get to be a finalist. I was very pleased.

Surfing at Laceys

Painted on Board

40 x 40cm x 2cm

I walk the beach at Lacey’s next door to the mouth of Currumbin Creek each day and I love to watch the surfers catching their waves.  Alongside Currumbin Creek, Lacey’s is a popular spot for serious surfers.

Painted in oil with cold wax medium on a cradled board. This is another piece in my Smaller Art Collection. I create these small pieces for those homeowners who do not have wall space for large pieces of art.  I believe everyone should live with art, I hope these small pieces enable them to live with art in their home.

A challenge to write a Poem about Love

This challenge was put out by a fellow blogger, Marlyn Exconde.  So I thought I would give it a try.

The poem had to be no more than 10 lines.  Each line had to contain only 4 words and each line heart_of_love_201813had to have the word ‘love’ in it.

Can you rise to the challenge?  Please try yourself and send in your poem.

Anyway – here is mine.

Love, how many ways.

 Love of beauty fair

 Children’s love- beyond compare

Love a wondrous emotion

Animal love unending devotion

Love thy Neighbours –  feat

Food, love to eat!

Love of money – weakness.

Love fellow man- greatness.

Love is human kindness.
