Nutcracker.

I now have 2 completed scratchboard since returning from my 2 nights away a couple of weeks ago, the first being a squirrel, the reference photograph used with permission by Eddie Evans FlickR.  Eddie also allowed me to use his photograph for my piece of "Tender Loving Care".

Here is the squirrel.  I couldn't think of a title for this one and asked for suggestions and as soon as "Nutcracker" came up, I immediately knew that was the right one for this piece.

My QWASI People's Choice Award.

Part of my prize for winning the QWASI (Queensland Wildlife Art Soc.) People's Choice Award was 2 nights at the Mt. Cotton Guest House.  I spent the 2 nights there last week and had a very relaxing time, met some lovely people as well as enjoy the great food and surroundings.  I thought it about time that I posted some photographs that I took while there.

The breafast table.  The morning this photograph was taken it was 7C degrees.


This little statue was just to the right of the table.


Rainbow Lorikeets visited for their breakfast as well and were just outside the window from where we were sitting.



Another visitor - a sulphur crested cockatoo.


Just a section of the bush setting.
