Holding Onto Summer
Artist: Nicky Medium:Acrylic Last summer I spent some time with my parents. New Zealand beaches are beautiful for lazing around on and indulging in a bit of R&R. It was a bit chilly the day we were out so no togs and jerseys a 'must' but still very pleasent to lie about with books and catching up on the latest news and chit chat.
July Exhibition 07
Part of The Still Life Wall at the exhibition of my work set up at home, to which many people came over a five day period
It's been a busy day today - starting out with scrubbing out some soup bones and hanging them on the line to dry (wet bone smells a bit weird) as I thought they might make interesteing painting surfaces for hand made chunky pendants.
I will write up the rest tomorrow. Have run out of steam!
