November 3rd – Sewing Flower Display and start of Down on the Farm
November 4th and November 5th – Didn't do anything on either of these two days as I was working for one of the and didn't feel like doing anything after work and the other day I just ran out of time after doing paper work and house work for most of the day.
November 6th – ICE Penguin and Mount Oxley in Pencil
I was watching Ice Age 2 and this is the picture that turned up on my page while I was doodling. I love the penguin which is funny as there are no penguins in Ice Age 2.
The Mount Oxley picture is part of the girls school work. We have four different tasks to do over the next couple of weeks so will be including them all.
One of the sessions the children did while on the camp this week was Aborignial Art works. I started this canvas to help show the children some of the different techniques that was used. There are four different areas in this picture - where I live - the swirls painted with dots, what I can here - the river and the fish swimming, what I can touch - the flowers in the neighbours garden and what I can see - which is the big purple area one as I haven't finished it yet - it will be the dogs in the back yard.
This is a close up of the flowers. This technique would have to be my favourite on the canvas so far. draw the pattern into the wet paint then add the dots when it is dry.
This was the storm front that appeared on Thursday night. We had gale force winds that blew a few trees over in the neighbours yard and well as blowing my strawberry patch guard to the tennis courts three house blocks away. Even though the wind scared me I quite enjoyed watching the sunset.
