lucsious possibilities


day 1 - straight out plants between pages and steaming /steeping
black maple leaves on arches

they turned out with hints of possibilites .... i was after POSSIBILITIES ....
 day 2 - added a few wrapped pieces of papers that included rusty bits
and old artworks on various papers including arches, fabriano, japanese papers, conqeuror
these luverly pieces are still wet and now waiting for 24 hours till they dry before unwrapping
but oh yes !!!   the POSSIBILITES hint at me...

used ginko leaf / black maple leaf/ daisy flower (from a groundcover type)

will unwrap tomorrow and see what they all did - including some others in between these parcels

Like the Heron ... Dance your own steps ...

happy to have received word that an image (collage) was selected for publication in the Heron's Nest - a wonderful publication of haiku, haibun and various short form.  

a few my published poetry here have been accepted in past issues of this publication ...... this time, a collage (part of the series titled 'the Domino Principle') was accepted in the up and coming 16th print annual edition. ....
two birds, illustrated by Gina
the series 'the Domino Principle' - created a few years ago is about our connection to the environment we live within and any impact, no matter how small, affects the whole - bit by bit - like dominoes falling as each pushes the next one over.  This one is in a collection in Launceston Tasmania.

looking closer

we dont often highlight the humble cacti/sedum
and yet ......
i do love their colour, texture, shapes
and their quiet fibonacci-ness

a little clematis to cover a fence and hide the washing line
loving those freckles

Drawn to the clouds I walked down to the viewing deck to watch the boat leave for Melbourne
