365 Grateful – Day 182

I’m grateful for community art groups who collaborate, have visions, and create thought-provoking artworks to suit the environment on which they stand. The photograph above is part of ‘The Mudflat Sculpture’ constructed in the early 1990’s at Lota Camping Reserve, Lota.  Lota is a nearby suburb to me. […]

365 Grateful – Day 167

I’ve started sorting through all the accumulated stuff in the ‘study’ area today.  I have plans of converting it into my blogging space.  It once used to be the hub for all the family to use.  We used to just have the one computer, but the kids all […]

365 Grateful – Day 163

I’m grateful for a day at home alone (apart from my two dogs!) so that I could concentrate and focus on my first attempt at re-igniting my creative side! I’m working with ink and soft pastels.  I’m very rusty, but the longer I work at it, the more […]

365 Grateful – Day 27

I’m grateful for artists and their art – in all the different forms that they come!  I love the feelings that viewing a piece of artwork that takes my fancy brings out in me.  Like being inspired to create my own art, feeling uplifted, and reflective (What inspired […]

365 Grateful – Day 15

I’m grateful that I am a little bit creative.  Being creative is very therapeutic and very satisfying when you get good results!  The photograph today is of an abstract acrylic painting I did a couple of years ago.  Whilst it is far from a masterpiece, I was quite […]

365 Grateful – Day 12

I am grateful for having such a thoughtful and wonderful mother.  In the early days of my marriage, my mother gave my sisters and I a lovely timber calendar frame.  Each year, at Christmas, we receive a calendar for our frames for the new year.  This has become […]
