Back to the drawing board.

Back home and after a wonderful Christmas with family.

I hope you  had a wonderful Christmas and that Santa was good to you.

Queensland was not the place to visit this Christmas.  It was rain rain and more rain. a cyclone up north and floods everywhere.   We unfortunately decided it best to cut our holiday short by one day and good job we did as the highway closed the next day.   We made it home safely. pot holes in the road and rain most of the way home.

The year is almost at an end.  I hope 2011 brings the best creations out for us artists.  During 2010 I have enjoyed the wonderful standard of work shared by many blogger artists and I know 2011 will be even better.
Happy drawing and painting to you all.  

Back into the Lorikeets now and should have it finished in the next few days.

To all my blogger friends and guests.  I hope you have a wonderful Christmas whether you are staying home or away on holiday.     Stay safe and I look forward to sharing our art in the new year.  Thank you for your support through the year which I have appreciated and enjoyed . 




We will be heading off to meet my daughter Sandra and family for Xmas.   We are each travelling halfway  to make it easier for us all.  Australia is such a big continent.  They will travel from Townsville QLD  and us from NSW.     Staying at Harvey Bay  QLD,  which is approx halfway.
Hope the weather improves for us all.  It's rain, floods or wind all down the east coast.



My very best wishes to you  for a Healthy and  Happy 2011.  


Big Hugs.   Dors.  xx

Lorikeet WIP #3


A little more done. Still have work to do on the lower part of the left bird. I wasn't happy with the lower part so some erasing/removing of color has been done so now to hopefully put that right.     I think it will now stay on my drawing board until after Christmas. It will be something nice to come back to after the holiday break.

Kangaroos in our garden

The family portrait.
Mum Dad and Bubs..  

Look what we found munching on our grass in the garden late  afternoon today. We have seen them really close but never in our own garden.
The house in the background is our next door neighbours. not sure if you can pick the wire fence between us. It was so exciting to see them. Hope they decide to come regular... there is plenty of grass to share with them. We are totally amazed at just how much wildlife we are getting on a 1/2 acrea lot.

Check out the short movie. The Kangaroos looking left then right to cross the road... leaving our garden.
