PAINTINGS LOST TO MOLD.

ALL THOSE BRIGHT PAINTINGS I DID IN 2012 HAVE BEEN DESTROYED BY MOLD. IT'S UNDERSTANDABLE THAT I'M A LITTLE SAD. AT LEAST THERE IS STILL SOME RECORD OF THEM ON THE BLOG. CLICK HERE

Dark clouds + moon

I just wanted to show you the extent of the cloud cover this morning whilst I was attempting to photograph the moon. Beautifully moody.

Moon this morning 18 April, 2014

Dark clouds are moving across the sky on this Good Friday Melbourne morn, but I managed to take this photograph of the Moon at 6.41am.

Blood Moon ~ view from my place in Richmond, Victoria

I took this photograph of the Blood Moon at 6.59pm tonight with my hand held LUMIX TZ300 digital camera with 20X. What an amazing sight, but it was more brown than red in color.

In support of my niece Kathryn Wright who is living with breast cancer I am donating one of the drawings I completed last year for TEAM KATH Mothers Day Classic in Bendigo. If you are on Face Book you can make a bid. Entitled *Woman of the Sea*, it was drawn with Faber Castell Aquarelle & Derwent color pencils on Arches 300gsm, 100% cotton rag; its unframed size is 29 X 42 cm (A3 sized paper). The drawing will go to the highest bidder over the next two weeks and will be sent to them (within Victoria, Australia) by Registered Post.

Succulent

This is the sixth drawing I've done in a series on Succulents. This one from my garden bloomed last week and sported glorious pink and white flowers, unfortunately three days of rain ruined the flowers. Like the others, this drawing was made with Prismacolor pencils on A3, 185gsm Arches Watercolor, 100% cotton rag. Other pencils drawings completed end of 2013 and 2014 may be found at this link.

A bit early, however upcoming exhibition

I'm absolutely pleased as punch that many of my photo-montages will be exhibited on the wall of the Degreaves Reading Room at the City Library, 253 Flinders Lane, Melbourne in OCTOBER this year. Not entirely sure which ones I'll be showing in the 12 metre space, but in the meantime here's one I did today.
