New Chapter

It is a little sad, but I shall be finishing the blogs now ..... due to a change in circumstances. A move from the present home address is imminent, and I really don't know where I will be living. Also, a visit to the other side of Australia is in the pipeline for next month.

During the time of blogging - one year now, all the readers and those who have communicated via comments, have given me much enjoyment. Thankyou all, very much for your kind support and generosity of sharing..... ciao Alice :)

Winter Lilacs

The winter light throws strong contrasts on to nature, when the sun comes out after rain. I've tried to capture the mood of early winter, when the grasses are still dried out from summer, and not yet green from the rain. Oil on canvas 18" x 30".

Boutique Jewellery 2

A Paris inspired necklace with a 4cm machined crystal drop, Eifell tower charm, tiny key and a gold crystal bead with chain, collected together on an antique gold art nouveau connector, hanging by what I call "dungeon chain". It's a brass textured chain that has become aged.

A total diversion - to play around with balance.

'Edenside' in Spring

The title is the name on the gate of this semi rural, property. Set in the hills among other orchards, the wild almond trees across the fence line of this place, caught my eye, and very quickly, it became a favourite spot.

This is a very early piece, painted in the first year of the working art life. Oil on canvas over board 19.5" x 33".
