The above image is taken from one of my little journals.. .the drawing is of the elecrical plug for my iron.Â Have you noticed that these yellowy greens are a current obsession of mine?Â I’m seriously besotted.Â
I also worked on a painting on canvas today and I’m rather happy with it, there’s probably a bit more required, but I’m pleased with the direction.Â I might buy some more canvases this week as I find it so much fun to work with paint. I’m in love with the colours more than anything else.
I haven’t been on the net much in the past couple of week but I have bookmarked some interesting artists who I would like to share with you.
Kate Blee is a British textile artist, I love the colours she uses. I can’t seem to link to my favourite pieces, but if you go to the link title Wall and then the link Vessel, you’ll see my favourite piece… that bloody green again!
Kirsty Hall has an interesting project going drawing on the back of envelopes, filling them with things, then posting them to herself.Â A complex sort of set up, but her envelope drawings are facinating to me.Â Â Â
The skiing at Hotham was wonderful.Â I didn’t want to leave.Â By the end I was going very nicely, parallel skiing down the easier blue runs and dealing with mogols without too much fuss.Â 🙂
Riscy took the photo above from the top of the Summit Run at Hotham looking towards Mount Feathertop.
It was a 6 hour bus ride for me to get to Hotham on Friday night, I was working in Melbourne late last week, so couldn’t drive up with everyone else on Friday morning. I got in at quarter to midnight, just in time to hire my skis and boots before the hire shop closed so I would be ready to burst onto the slopes as early as possible on Saturday morning.Â We were very lucky to have our friend Wendy skiing with us, she is an excellent coach and had us really flying by the end of the weekend.Â I’m keen to go back as soon as possible.
There were 14 of us staying at the apartment in the village, it was so much fun and lots of great food too!Â To top the weekend off, two of the girls saw my felted scarves and are really keen to learn how to felt, so I’m gonna have them over for a feltmaking party one weekend soon!!Â
I’ve got some rare time in my workroom tonight, so I’m hoping to have some more white quilts so show in the next day or so.Â
