Rosalie Gascoigne

Finally checked out the Rosalie Gascoigne exhibition at the NGV and it really impressed me. I've always loved her work and it's a fabulous show with quite a diverse range of work there.I really liked her old enamel ware pieces, and the ones with just plain, silvery aged wood but couldn't find any images of those, but the bright traffic yellow ones like this are what she is probably most famous for.

This image by Eduardo Recife struck a chord with me today.
Seems like a tough time to live in Victoria right now. I feel pretty tense and sad most of the time and the whole thing isn't over yet. It's hard to avoid thinking about the fires when all you need to do is look at the smoggy sky and see the weird red sunset and smell the smoke. Everyone knows someone who has been directly affected, my own little niece and her Mum had to evacuate last night...and its not over yet. After two months with no proper rain, it has to come soon right? Doesn't it?

Love Letter

I spotted this story on the ABC website about a mysterious French Lady writing a Valentine's letter to her Australian soldier lover in 1918. It was such a sweet relief from the horror of all the bushfire stories. She must have spent a lot of time making this...I hope they found each other again and lived a long and happy life together.
Yes- I am a romantic.

Bush fire appeal at Phoenix-Appeal on Red Bubble

I have donated this image and its proceeds to a Bush Fire appeal at Phoenix-Appeal on Red Bubble to raise money for the victims of the devastating Victorian bushfires which have ravaged the state, totally destroyed entire towns and killed 108 people...and it's ongoing.
