Loving the work of Rex Winston Walford at the moment

Last week I started a course at the local art school in mixed media, hopefully it will prove inspiring. The first couple of lessons have been great, and I've persevered with work that I would normally give up on. Grabbed this shot today of the paint covered sink in the classroom. Love it.

This weekend our little man turns two! We took him to one of his favourite spots, Cafe Bones in Leichhardt. We were mugged right away by a Rhodesian Ridgeback tall enough to just whip the food right off the tables. Scampi retaliated and stole a puppychino.
Some where unimpressed with this behaviour...
More of Scampis new friends...
And it turns out that the first Saturday of every month is pug day!
Again, some were less impressed...
A lovely morning had by all.
Happy Birthday baby pig!

The winner of this years Archibald Prize, Margaret Olley by Ben Quilty, was far better in real life, photos don't quite do it justice. I also really like the technique of Craig Ruddy's Cathy Freeman portrait. Splashes of acrylic paint across the back of toughened glass and ink on the front, over the top of plaster on canvas.
The Archibald and Wynne Prizes are at the Art Gallery of NSW until 26th June.

Finally a holiday! The easter and anzac break is here and Im getting stuck into some artwork - plus finishing off all those little DIY jobs around the house. Here is the latests print added to our etsy shop. I did this as a gift card a couple of years ago, don't know why it didn't occur to me to turn it into a pretty print sooner. The creative monsoon website is also down for a revamp but check out our new online gallery. A bit of fun, I'll be changing the exhibitions on there every few months so be sure to keep checking back.

I love this quote from Audrey Hepburn, I've been meaning to do a little design with it for ages.
"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."
— Audrey Hepburn

This week I was feeling a little inspired by the work of Frida Kahlo. Ive been looking at a lots of Mexican wedding ideas for the 'i do' it yourself site, and she just kept popping up! So I put together a little homage to Frida, a digital mixed media collage using one of her quotes "Feet, why do I need them if I have wings to fly?" Available as a print from our redbubble and etsy shops.

Every morning at around 4am Im woken up by the same thing, a big fat lump of a french bulldog plonking himself on my legs. Which would be bad enough, but then he proceeds to lick and chew his paws. Apparently this is a frenchie habit, looks like it is :)
