Every December I make a selection of Christmas tags from recycled materials – usually made from the cards I received last Christmas and scraps of interesting paper I have collected during the year. Sharing the love! I wish you all a very peaceful and enjoyable festive season.
Watercolour painting of a black eyed Susan vine (Thunbergia) by Rosie Kerr. After a weekend of flooding rain, the sun came out. This inspired me to paint these beautiul flowers. They seem to be popular in very old domestic gardens. My great aunt had one that completely covered their backyard shed.
Every morning I take a walk around my district and check out the local gardens. We live in an area where bamboo grows to enormous heights. I found a small frond poking through a fence so decided to make it the subject of a painting.
In the Garden is a watercolour painting with the subject of a small branch I found as I was weeding the garden . I was ready to throw it onto the compost heap but then noticed how pretty the leaves were and decided to paint it instead.
This morning I dropped by the workshop at “Hammer and Hand’ Byron Bay and found sculptor, Bruce Pringle, making angels and thylacines (Tasmanian tigers). I am a member of this artists’ collective and exhibit my paintings here.
