Holiday to Inverloch

Recently went on a beachy holiday to Inverloch (Victoria, Australia). Here are my angels enjoying the view.

I got so inspired by the shapes of the seaweed. The variations of colours and shapes... even in this one piece, which was my favourite type, the variations in shape within the one variety were beautiful. Some of them looked as though they had been pieced together. I have had people mention that these kind of shapes remind them of my work, so it's no wonder I am drawn to them!

Look at the contrast between these two rocks that nature has conveniently (for photo taking purposes) placed together :) And the colours, gasp!

The texture in the seaweed..

In the shell museum..

And some more shape & textural inspiration in the trees. 

So inspiring! 
We went away with some friends (my art jam friend & her husband & kids to be exact) and during the evenings we somehow managed to find time to do a bit of art. Here's my take of a mermaid that the girls were drawing while were away. Kids drawings have to be another fantastic form of inspiration for me. And seaweed, of course :)

Shop Update

I have been updating my shop. Fun! Here are some new goodies you can find in there.. some birdy brooches, which always do well at the markets.. head over to my shop if you'd like to see some different pics of these.

And I am starting to get some prints back into my shop. They are my favourite to get out there! I mentioned this one recently on my facebook page. I painted it to ring in the New Year, as gratitude is a feeling I am going to try and be more conscious of this year. I really am grateful for all that is in my life, and I am going to try to be grateful of the lessons I can learn through difficult times. After all, how can we really be appreciative of the wonderful things in life if we never experience the pitfalls? The happiness paradox I think this is called.
I am hoping to put one of these prints up on the wall somewhere so that I can be reminded to be grateful. I hesitate to call it a new years resolution, as these never stick for me.. I need something a little more sustainable!
