Happy New Year everyone, although to those Queenslanders in the 22 flood ravaged towns who have lost everything in the State's worst ever floods, it definitely is a sad start to the New Year and hopefully they will soon be able to return to their homes. There has been no rain here in Brisbane today....Sunday 2nd January 2011 although it did rain again yesterday.....I think we have only seen the sun twice in the last couple of weeks which is unusual for Queensland which is known as the "Sunshine State".
If you would care to see just how devastating the floods are, I have posted a link below:-
My news is that the 3 scratchart patterns I promised to have ready in the New Year are now completed, they are "Green Eyes", "Lola" and "Elegant Rose". I am all "scratch patterned" out, although I still have one left to do for the Aus. Fine Art & Decorative Painting magazine. The deadline isn't until February so I have some time to work on a board that I have wanted to do for some time.
I prepared the board last night by transferring the line drawing to a 12" x 16" board and managed to do a little work to it today with a long way to go.
