Bits of black and white

Life seems to have had a few moments of late, but we appear to be in back front for a bit.  I have mostly been trying to get works ready for our exhibition in August - oh my goodness, is that really the time!?!?! - and also working on a few commissions, so I don't actually have much that I can show right now.

I do however have these images of a pebble commission and the front cover of a farewell card for Ken. He is heading off for a year, travelling the world, so we had a lovely Sunday lunch for a COMA farewell at Wendy's place at Maleny Retreat. A wonderful shared lunch, lots of good conversations, walks and wanders in such a stunningly beautiful and peaceful location.


The request for pebbles was large! One upper case alphabet, two lower case alphabets, extra vowels and some punctuation. I think whoever gets to play and write messages with these pebbles will have a fine time.






Don't you just love the question marks in life?

  2. Ken's departure will slow down the COMA group for a while. He'll be missed, even from this neck of the woods. Pebbles...aaaah.... my collection grows. (I think they're breeding)

    1. I know Jo - we'll miss him! But, I did just notice we have a Christmas exhibition lined up already. And yes, I think it's a well know geological fact that peebles breed (under the right conditions of course....)
