We launched leggings! Step into a world of individuality.

A moment captured in time when the early morning sunlight defines a golden silk web and another beautiful Golden Silk Orb Weaver Spider, one of many outside residents between house and garden.
Taken in tropical rural coastal country, near Innisfail, Far Northern Queensland , AU.

Love seeing and watching these gentle placid giant spiders spin daily their very large webs during the night and early mornings in our tropical summer time of year.

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.”
