I have had two busy days. Today was fun, I went to Lonsdale Quay with a friend for fish and chips, went to Dunderave (a little village near the beach in West Vancouver) and then went for a long walk along the seawall back to Park Royal (a mall) and caught the bus back home. It was a lovely sunny day, not too hot. perfect.

This is my second zendala. I haven't done any more since, I bounce around from one thing to another so I never get bored. I don't know whether this is a good thing or a bad thing but it would sure help if I had more room.

These two watercolours are ones I did several years ago - I don't actually remember doing them- I just found them amongst my stashed away paintings and paper. I didn't like these when I did them but I quite like them now. That is why it is not a good idea to throw things away when you don't like them. This has happened to me quite often. I rarely like things when I do them but looking at them with fresh eyes presents a different perspective.
I really like watercolours and they are really a better option for me because of the toxicity and smells of acrylics. I think I am going to sign up for an on-line watercolour course when I am finished with the journal workshop. I have also signed up for a one day workshop on how to put zippers in purses. This is on September 4th at Spool of Thread on Kingsway Ave. Lots to look forward to!!


  1. These would make gorgeous journal pages.

  2. I love all your artwork! Love the mandela especially!
    Senior moment - are we doing a swap now - I have it inmy mind we might be doing zentangles????
    Let me know.
    Just got diagnose with high blood pressure \ started pills yesterday. That's what the stress of last year did to me!!!
    Anyway - glad you have been having fun and are creating!
    take care.

  3. All great work and I'm so with you about not throwing away unfinished artwork / project bits. You could always come back to them with new insight and give birth to another new work. Good on you! ;D

  4. i am enjoying the colors and shapes in your watercolors.

    i tried doing those zentangles. they are neat! but i didn't quite get to the point where i could do more than 2 designs .. was still figuring out how to create a larger "thing" with them.
