so today... I thought I was going to pick up all 5 of the unsold pieces I took down recently for the ACT for kids exhibition. Well after driving through the rain and taking much longer than anticipated I was greeted by the wonderful surprise that 2 had sold and I was only picking up 3! I love that !
So I took myself to a little organic cafe in West End to have a hearty lunch before the 2 hour long wet drive home.
There were some rather random pictures all over the table I sat at . . .
My Mother gains a lot of strength from Mother Mary, I'm heading over to see her (Mum) for the month of July ... who knows... Mary will probably be there too .
You know what? . . . I really lOVE randomness... but its something I find very hard to do in my artwork.. and even life in general, perhaps in conversation I've nailed it... but not in art. So at least in blog post... this might be classified as... random. i like that.
I especially liked this last one, the little figure standing on top of the cresent moon caught my attention... and made me wonder. I did an art journal page recently, inspired we were by the tutorial.... make a page about WONDER. You might like to try it...
bye for now

On Tuesday I had to deliver some artwork to Brisbane, for an upcoming Abused Child Trust for Kids charity art show, (20 June in Brisbane) these 5 pieces were bubble wrapped and loaded into my car . . . ipod . . . chai in a takeaway ceramic cup . . . and off I went
I had the most wonderful feeling of freedom and adventure which put a little pep in my step.
Only about 5 minutes from my home I had the beginning of a colour wisdom card reading... spontaneously delivered via the shuffle on my iPod in my car, 'Woman Named Aubergine' "UNKNOWN" - 'You are not to know' - was the first... followed about 20 minutes later by Sky Blue! "EXPANSION" - 'You'll see it when you believe it.'
... Aubergine, Sky Blue, then Silver Cloud "CONFUSION" - 'Every silver lining has a cloud.' on my drive back home. The lovely thing was just how right on they were!! So I thought I would hang out good and proper with some of that Sky Blue in real life.
I took my 'best kebab in Brisbane' and a sarong to spread on the grass, and a gorgeous chai tea that was made fresh in a pot the traditional way for me by a lovely man at a shop in West End.
Watched the cheeky pigeons pass by, looking furtively at me in case I might be dropping crumbs.
Then I just lay on the grass watching the clouds for a little while, (do you see that big monster?)
and I was instantly transported back to my childhood where I began this fascination for cloud formation, creature spotting
There's a little pony at play here . . .
It was so simple, but so special at the same time.
I hope you get to lay on the grass sometime and watch your clouds skid by, and see some fleeting art. It's only there for a few seconds, especially for you.

“There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic.”
