Signs of Life

"Signs of Life'
A big thank you to the Glenroy Art Group for inviting me to do a demo for them this weekend.  I hope you all get a chance to try applying alcohol to pastel and some of the other methods I shared with you today.  The enthusiastic artists made me feel very welcome.

In our house the two dogs will find the most comfortable places to sleep.  On this day Louis found Sulley the best spot.

Raspberry Pickers - Kinglake

'Raspberry Pickers - Kinglake'
For years I have wanted to pick my own raspberries to make raspberry jam.  Now I can tick that off my bucket list, but I enjoyed it so much that I will endeavour to make it a yearly activity.  We are still enjoying the jam, despite giving away many jars to family and friends.  There were quite a few families picking on the day I happened to be at the raspberry farm.  What a great family activity!
