Texture Tuesday

I havebeen looking at some pix I took on a hike recently. The country has wonderful - dry, hard, beautiful. It brings to mind the requirement for water, the changes on the environment, the need for change. It flows through to my art - a new paper doll made from a topology map of the Pacific sea floor. A vision of a world without water.

So Brown the Weather

After finishing de-dustifying everything today after the dust storm of the 23 September, I decided to check out the pix I took during the storm. Yuck! No wonder there was so much reddy brown water when I was finished

I'm even seeing brownish when I'm creating - these new badges seem to be affected by the muted tones. Well, at least they look like they should be that colour.

Pelican Friday at Redcliffe

Today we went to the pelican feeding at Pelican Park Redcliffe. The Redcliffe council do the feeding every day of the year at 10:00 am and it's great to watch. The bird are so tame and they are amazing and HUGE up that close.
We had a great time watching them and then checked out the bat colony in the botanical gardens at Redcliffe, and finally watched a man walk his pet pig in the park! What a place for wildlife.

I also collected some rocks that are just right for my pictures with my new brooches.
