Goblins and fairies…. mischief in the garden


Mischief in the garden

Mischief in the garden

Where are the fairies?

Hiding…. but there is a little goblin hand coming around the stem from the left.

So there is!

I can see one of his hands.

He is hiding, must be scared.

The more I look at this the more I see my little fellow crouching a bit and clinging for dear life onto the fungi stem. I see an elongated rectangular shape, greenish head with a tuft of orange hair and his right leg bent at the knee as befits his overall clinging or climbing up position. Then on the other side a little fellow has his short right arm stretched up as he curves his body a little to his left. It is like looking at cloud patterns. Imagination running wild, all because of Anne’s comment re fairies.

That’s just brilliant!

Thanks for reading my weird ramblings re the “goblins”.

Love em!

He is totally there, the naughty critter has ripped the hem of the fairy’s lavender dress. She is sitting under the toadstool.

Clever you noticing that….. yes very naughty. And such a pretty dress it was.

ah but the little hedgepig on the right is even naughtier cos he was looking up her dress….

What a place of mischief is our garden.

………… the above is a discussion that evolved from my simple photo of a garden fungi I posted on Facebook. What a delight that social media can cause such enjoyment and evolution of an imaginative story

Autumn photos, Tasmania


A late afternoon drive to Latrobe today to take photos of the colours of Autumn. We are so lucky to live in such a magnificent place. At Bells Parade, Latrobe, Tasmania, Australia.

Silk painting ready to go


Pre the Winter SlumberI have finished and framed my latest silk painting, inspired by the autumn tree outside the studio window. I used a combination of outliner (gutta technique) and watercolour style…… the latter because I like free flow in my works. I must admit, however, that I am tempted to try the Sistek technique as I am impressed with many on the excellent works I have seen on the internet using that method. It means going back to being in control and I have worked hard to allow myself to enjoy a serendipitous approach. Anyway back to this work. It is the last show the tree puts on, full colour “party”, before it sheds the leaves for winter so I have titled the painting Pre the Winter Slumber . Tomorrow Keith (my husband) and I will make the trip to Scottsdale (about 5 hours round trip, plus stops) to a lovely gallery, Scottsdale Art and Framing, to deliver this (along with a couple of other works) for their winter exhibition. Looks like good weather so we will take the cameras.
