Innerscapes exhibition

I have three prints in this upcoming group show- and I'm very keen to see the other artist's work too (a few are Red Bubblers too so you can see their work via Red Bubble.)

Primos by Robert Garcia

This painting by Robert Garcia fascinated me for some reason I really like it. Sent to me as part of a regular newsletter from Jen Bekman.
And another of his, "We Are Who We Are":

Spring is here ...finally!

Today was a perfect Spring day- bright sunshine, an intense blue sky and a very slight breeze to dry the washing. Oh my goodness- what a relief. I spent most of the day outside planting seeds and soaking up the sun- with no shoes on even!!!
And check out my fabulous cauliflowers- this is number 3 so far, each as perfect as the next with pretty much no help from me whatsoever. Ain't Mother Nature grand?
I also made a fabulous nettle soup from the nettles that grew on my plot at the Northcote Community Gardens, using Christine's super recipe- it's on the blog,you can see it here.

Tom's Special Box

Kerry-Ann (my mail-art buddy) has a very special little boy, Tom, who was wondering why I kept sending stuff to her, and he was worried I'd forgotten about him- so of course I had to reassure him that he was unforgettable with a little customised art box. I painted the top with blackboard paint and lined the inside with felt, and included some goodies like pencils and chalk- plus Ben made a superduper mini blackboard duster especially to fit. It was so much fun to make, I hope he has as much fun using it!
