Spring is finally here down under and although the air is filled with the joyous sounds of blackbird and thrush, the silver-eyes no longer congregate at the bird feeder. I shall miss them over summer, but look forward to their return in time for the ripening apples in the autumn. This little fellow is my first attempt at silverpoint. His quizical expression seems to ask "What do you think?"

Wee Chuppa Chup (grandson- not his real name). The world is filled with wonder - got to take it all in! Still sitting on my easel while I work on other projects.

A winter's day and the local hunt were out in force. Sadly the hare did not get away! Loved the horses though and the warm afternoon sun.

Haven't posted in a while. Finding it difficult to settle to paint after 7.1 earthquake 5 days ago . Much damage in Christchurch, but mercifully, not to mention, miraculously, no casualties. Aftershocks continue to unsettle and also to damage already weakened buildings.
