The Art of a Long Adelaide Heatwave

It is hot, very hot. So we go to the beach in the early evening because its too hot to go during the day. I make some summer art.

Then we sit in front of the air con play with make-up and take photos of ourselves.

Be careful - cabin fever/boredom can be dangerous - it isn't just limited to make up photos - other symptoms include but aren't limited to - letting your 7 year old paint your nails red, dancing stupidly around the living room naked, pulling silly faces, making silly faces out of our food,watching very bad tv, playing pranks on each other, laughing hysterically for no apparent reason and fighting over whose turn it is to get cold drinks from the fridge.

This outbreak is being monitored and should other symptoms arise you will be informed. As yet there is no available cure and could last as long as 2 weeks.

The Art of Ani Difranco

Saw the ever inspiring Ani Difranco last night live at the Norwood Concert Hall. Her performance has sparked off something in my artwork but we will all have to wait and see what this is (even me!).
This image wasn't taken by me and I do not have copyright - I got it from a google search, hopefully I'm not infringing any copyright by placing it here - unsure who the photographer is to give crdit too.

The Art of Being Queen of The Castle

Its hot. We hang out in the lounge room in our underwear with the air con on. We get bored. That is all.

The Art of a Modern Interpretation

I love the old classic moviestar look from the 40/50's and have been yearning to do a series, as I'm not a hairdresser and would struggle doing up the models with the right look I thought I would give my new series the moviestar-esque look by using photoshop instead of hair/make up. Very happy with how this new series is coming along. I describe it as the classic moviestar look with a modern twist. There will definitely be more to come as I refine and play around with my new "look".

The Art of Lulu and Her Family

My best friend Jess (who I affectionately call Lulu) turned 30 on Jan 2nd. She has moved to Texas and is home in Adelaide for a few weeks. I struggled with what to get her because it has to be something that can be packed away and easily taken with her back to the States. So I came up with the idea to do a photoshoot of her with her family (her two sisters and her mum). This is the first completed piece from the shoot. This piece and more of my work can be viewed on my Redbubble page.

The Art of a Good Quote

"Lying in bed would be an altogether perfect and supreme experience if only one had a colored pencil long enough to draw on the ceiling." G.K. Chesterton

when you can't find the right words, find someone elses :)

The (no) Art of Boredom

There really is no art in boredom. When I'm this bored I can't even do my artwork. Its like artist block there is no creativity flowing at all. There aren't many words either so thats why my poor little blog is being neglected.
