Tree art at St Andrews

This is what I’ve been up to over the last few days – as I said before I have been rather obsessed by the trees and as you can see I wasn’t joking!!!


I used gum from nearby pine trees to fix the red leaves in place


I love the drawing quality of the Spotted Eucolyptus tree bark


it was fun working in the Australian bush and I feel I understand more about the country – especially the insect life!! The mosquitos round here seem to think an English woman is a good reason to have a banquet!!!! I itch alot!


Australian trees

I have been rather obsessed by the trees over here and these are just a few of the MANY photographs I have taken DSC08051DSC08045

the last photo of a Scribbley Gum tree is a taster of what is to come ………soon!


Julie Arkell workshop

While i was visiting Grrl+dog in Sydney - Just by chance (and because I’m nosy!) I spotted a catalogue from a Julie Arkell exhibition on her bookshelf – to cut a long story short this happened…………………….


Grrl did the knitting of course!


i left her with Grrl to remember me by! I think she’ll be very happy there!!

Then this – the middle long thing!!!


which Grrl instantly named and don’t think I can repeat here!

the sticky mess spread throughout the house and into the back yard – our creativity flowed!! i had such a fun time with her!
