The cutest Possum

We had a visit from the Possum again last night,  Not so timid this time.  maybe he was too hungry.  LOL
Enjoying some dried fruit here.   Last week it was Bananas.  Guess we will have to go get plenty of Bananas in stock for them.     No baby this time.  I hope it is still alive.
We are so thrilled that we have all our little visitors on just a 1/2 acrea.

A short break.

I have had a little forced break.   All is settling down now and I will get back to my artwork.

My dear Mum passed away in the UK.  She reach the good age of 87
Mum suffered from dementia.

We also had friends visit from Queensland last weekend.

We have started the landscaping in the garden,  Nev has been busy building a retainer wall at the back and the side of the house.

I have uploaded a couple of videos on my YouTube channel.   http://www.youtube.com/user/dorspage?feature=mhum#p/a/u/0/Ce0m3eAJ85k

I hope in the next couple of days to catch up on all my bloggers friends recent work that I have missed.

More wild life in the Cross's garden.

I had a nurse of this gorgeous Blue Tongue Lizard this morning as he seems to have made our garden his home.
The photo is on Nev's camera. I will post it when Nev loads it onto his computer.

Here are a couple from yesterday.
He is enjoying a nice lump of minced steak....  Premium quality too.   LOL.

Another addition to our wildlife.
A Dragon Lizard.

Feeding time close to our home.

The Roos feeding time at sunset. This was taken just around the corner from where we Live. They cross the main road through the estate so we have to be careful driving,especially at dawn and
dusk. We are hoping that the council will put up signs so that people driving through will be aware that we have such beautiful wildlife here. The Roos are are not tame, they are quite cautious of us humans. Aren't they gorgeous ?

Kangaroo... on Canson 220 gsm.

Here we are with TAKE TWO of the Kangaroo.    This time I have done it on Canson 220 gsm paper. I am much happier with it now.  Also it is a whiter paper and gives a much better contrast.
I got a good few hours in yesterday in the art room which was so relaxing.
I still have more work to do on this...  more layers of fur.  I should get this finished today.

Kangaroo WIP #3

Still more work to be done. I am not really happy with the paper, it seems too soft and flimsy. (Strathmore 400 series med drawing paper) I am thinking about starting this again on Arches paper that seems to have more body. I am finding the paper is creasing and I am just not happy with it.
Decisions decisions. LOL. lot of work but I am very fussy. Looks like it's a start over... Take 2 about to begin. :)
