why not take the time....

WOW i cant believe it! where does the time go…. it has now been a month since i started hosting Birth and Maternity with the help of the other hosts and we now have our fourth set of features. i am so happy that people are beginning to add their work to the group again as it is such an important part of life therefore should be and important part of art also… i have been lucky enough this last couple of weeks to be able to photograph mother one week before bub arrived and now so happy to announce mother and baby are doing very well and you should be viewing an image or two o him soon enough.

I also wanted to take the time to thank all of the people who have shown their support you all make the world of difference in my life. you provide encouragement when perhaps i am a little…

Now hosting the Birth and Maternity Group

Hello to anyone thats watching…
I know i have been very quite of late and there has not been much work added on my behalf but on the odd occasion this happens and I’m sure I will be adding more work soon
For some more interesting news It appears that myself and Two Other members of RB have managed to become hosts of the wonderful Birth and Maternity group. Which i am quite excited about and as of about 1 hour ago we have our first 12 feature images please feel free to head over there and have a look.
This group was a little stagnate for some time so there were many images waiting for approval. If you have any pregnancy images you would like to add to our group please do not hesitate to stop on in join our group and add your pieces. We would love to see them.
Thanks for taking the…

fallen behind now i have to catch up with you all....

Hi all
i just thought i should share a little of myself this evening as i seem to have been wandering around and around in circles wanting to paint but not painting and craving to go out and photograph something but no time to do it…
it has been most frustrating for me
i have had sleepless nights…
seriously… how often has it happened to you??
a couple of weeks ago i found myself unable to sleep all because “i had to paint something, anything” … and when i finally got all the supplies to paint, it seemed i just couldn’t….
for myself, i am not an artist who can plan whatever it is i want to create… it just appears in-front of me as i go… of course i can go back and recreate what is needed if by chance i think it would look better done …

i remember the day that i reached 100 views here on redbubble and was so excited that there had been 100 views of my work it was such a happy moment for me…
so here i sat this morning and as i was shuffling around red bubble in my pj’s after getting kids out the door off to school and before the rest of todays work took over i looked up and noticed

so i have been thinking of late (hmmm i know sounds tricky but on occasions i do manage a thought or two..) anyways to the point..
i know that for myself as an artist photography is who i am i have always been and will always be… though art also has taken up a large part of my life and at this moment in time while waiting to develop a whole heap of negatives i have been reconecting with the side of me that draws and paints…
i have noticed here on rb there are a few members that have seperate accounts for certain styles and what i am wondering is what are those who are watching me(or anyone else) think when …

happy birthday to me... hehe

so i just thought i would share that this morning i was jumped on climbed over and showered with little gifts that were surrounded by hand drawn wrapping paper and aproximately three rolls of sticky tape… could life get any sweeter… yes indeed it could and there it was a hot cup of tea in bed…
as far as i go, i couldnt wish for a better wake up call, lol its not everyday that i get “happy birthday to youuuuu you look like a monkey and smell like one tooo (hmmph why did i ever teach them that one)”
