woyww - 520 bits and pieces on my desk

In honour of the 520th WOYWW I have a pic of my desk with lots of mess but also a

"star gem" magnolia coming along nicely.

Happy woyww

woyww - sneer versus teeth

An attempt at painting an almost 2 year old with a "sneer" makes me question why I chose 
that photo to paint.  

So much simpler to paint Elli with a full set of doggie teeth.

Have a lovely WOYWW peek at desks.
I have set a reminder to come back next week for the 10th anniversary.

woyww seascape

This poor little brush had a workout while trying to capture the details on this seascape on my desk.  

 I don't think I could fit another wave on this little part of the ocean.  Waves breaking over the sandstone cliffs part of the Kamay, Botany Bay National Park. 

Had a lovely day last Friday catching up with Shaz and finally meeting after 6 years of chat on woyww.  Hope you have recovered from your fall Shaz?  Which reminds me to say hello to all the other lovely crafters/artists on woyww.

blue and white crock travels the world

Aiming for a monthly check in on woyww for 2019.  Surely I should be able to manage once a month.  Time will tell.

Painted an old blue and white crock that has been hanging around for decades. Turns out I visited Italy as a child and stayed on a cherry farm not far from where they produce the very Italian "Fabbri Amarena".    But, the crock actually belonged to my DH's family who lived in France for a period of time. Now it is immortalised in watercolour in Australia. 

Have a lovely woyww.
