I'm Taller than you are


 When I read Illustration Friday Challenge of Tall I thought of giraffes, which I have painted before. Then I thought of stilts which I love... my oldest brother made me a pair of stilts when I was 9ish and I went up and down hill on them. The change of perspective was amazing only a foot or two taller and the world was a new place!

Mellow Yellow

A little fall colour from the garden.

Creative Tuesdays Polka Dots

First day of school, favourite dress, flowers to impress shaking with nerves but excited as can be.

I want to be teachers pet

I think it is actually Mom who wants her child to be liked by the teacher? Mind you I don't think you can go wrong with flowers.

If I had wings

Light as air, dreaming of flying a new flower fairy.

Freeze Dance

Dance your heart out then wait for the music to stop and FREEZE!!!
I couldn't resist making his shoes blue suede.....

Last weekend attended a beautiful wedding, very west coast in the forest at the edge of the ocean with whales keeping watch. Pure magic.

There were lots of little children spinning and dancing, collecting rocks on the beach and rolling down the hill. So no painting on the weekend and returned to work with a nasty sore throat that has turned into a cough, moving very slowly in the hottest days of the summer.

Bouncing: Boing boing squeak

This was the first thing that came to mind! I use this rhyme in babytime.....

Boing! Boing! Squeak! Boing! Boing! Squeak!
A bouncing mouse is in my house,
It's been there for a week.
It bounced from out of nowhere,
Then quickly settled in.
I'm grateful that it came alone,
I've heard it has a twin.
It bounces in the kitchen,
It bounces in the den,
It bounces through the living room --
Look! There it goes again.
