Everything is refreshed after a very early morning tropical rain shower during our hot and humid 2011-2012 (much anticipated/delayed) ‘wet’ season. Day/night temp’s fluctuate usually between 25 – 33 degrees Celsius.
You will only see these multiple bulbous green creeper vine plants with their rich and vibrant flaring ‘fire-flame’ flowers growing usually over all other plants in the garden at this time of year.

(The vampire sucking mozzies at the time were full on too!)

My “creative art practice” may be be succinctly summed up in the following fantastic metaphorical quote by Kandinsky:
~ “Colour is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key then another to cause vibration of the soul.”
