Friendship


We went to a friend's farm recently for the AFL Grand final. A group of families spent the day watching the footy, drinking, eating and then spent time around the camp fire. My girl friend and I managed to consume vast quantities of champaign which we both suffered for in the morning. The next day the kids went motorbike riding around the paddocks and my children decided that they too wished to live in the country. This is a picture of two of the children at the farm, hand in hand walking up the drive. I was inspired to try my hand at another landscape with this charming act of friendship.

Kay,

You just visited my blog--I'm visiting yours now. You do lovely work and I'm really pleased to meet you and discover your work. I'm sending you a link to the Southeastern Pastel Society newsletter. I thought you might like to see what's going on with pastels in the U.S.

Kay,

Of course I'm partial to landscapes, but I think you've found something that really works for you. The only think I would suggest on this one would be to trim it off right above the reddish shape in the road. I think it focuses more on the kids then. Thanks, too, for the update on your spring you left on my blog!

Kay,

Thanks for your loyalty to my blog!No, I'm not normally talkative in real life. More often than not, I let everyone else do all the yammering. But I like to write, and I'm always telling my students to EXPAND! and GIVE DETAILS! so I try and follow my own advice. Cheers!

Hi, Kay. U left a note on my blog wondering if what I said about Xomba is true. All I can say is I do see a quick climb in my adsense earnings after I start Xomba ( and Articleincome - another site similar to Xomba). I sincerely think luck plays a role too since it all depends on people clicking on the ads. But traffic is unmistakenly a lot more at Xomba than at my own blogs. Have a nice day.

Hi Kay.
I've just been looking through your work and I think it is absolutely wonderful. To my mind it's just what pastel work should look like, all lost and found edges and subtle colours.

Kay,
I can't imagine Christmas without snow! Growing up we always had about a foot of snow, and sledding down my grandparents' mile-long driveway was a tradition...

btw, I asked the post office how much to mail jewelry to Australia. They said about $3US. That's hard to believe, since it's only about $.50 more than mailing it within the US. Apparently small packages slide in cheaply!

I love this painting as well as the other one of the children walking you did. I love how all your paintings have a really soft and warm feel to them. You must be very sensitive to goodness. My best.
