Lush tropical leaves
Based on a traditional Japanese Yuzen Chiyogami design.
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.

Here s a painting I completed today in 2 stages. Wasn’t sure whether I should have painted details on the leaves or just left it as it was!
from original art nouveau tile design
We recently camped for a few nights in the Border Ranges National Park NSW. I collected a few leaves from our campsite and painted at the picnic table there.
Inspired by my florist friend Jenny’s market stall. Collage of Japanese Washi paper and watercolour.
Friday night was the opening of Hammer and Hand Byron Bay exhibition “Melting Point”.

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.
Camping in Jamieson Victoria. There are showers of beautiful Autumn leaves falling all around us.
We spent three days camping at Wee Jasper. Several corrugated iron shacks provide holiday accommodation.
I am on a month’s camping trip around rural NSW Australia. I have one paint brush and a tube of French ultramarine watercolour.
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.
A friend bought me a bunch of roses from the Byron Bay Farmers’ market
My neighbour’s passionfruit vine tumbles over our fence. Today I decided to paint the leaves of this pretty plant.
I found this creeper meandering up a wall as I was walking home from town.
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.
It is nearing the end of summer here. I have recently noticed some trees are changing from green to touches of yellow as Autumn approaches.
Summer Holiday Town. Continuing my summer theme. This isolated coastal town offers a break from busy routines.
I saw and old apple tree in a workshop yard in Tasmania and had to paint it. I have to admit that I have eaten a few apples from this tree.
Photo of which this painting was the subject
This is a tile I made a few years ago from recycled crockery from South Hobart Tip Shop
I made this mosaic jar from recycled crockery found at South Hobart Tip Shop Tasmania.
We are having such beautiful summer weather, I thought I would paint something with the feel of a carefree summer holiday.
I have just finished making my first Christmas card for 2015. Only 20 to go. This design is a watercolour painting with Japanese washi paper collage.
