As we all know Australia is a hot country and most
years in our Summer season we get
massive bush fires.
It was a close call for my family and I,
for we almost had to make our way to the beach.
On the phone with my step dad John who
is high up in the brigade, his words still send chills down my spine
"can you see the fire, can you smell it,
what way is the wind blowing?"
The wind ended up changing direction
and we were saved.
It was as simple as that!
That"s mother nature for you!
So I ended up expressing how I felt about the
fire in a painting.
Most of you know Im always painting and
re painting over my paintings so this will
probably happen, its just a release of emotions
that needed to escape.
|its such an amazing Blissful area of white|
sands and beaches so the aqua
represents the beautiful
|I couldnt help but out the corner of my|
eye I kept staring at on my headpieces
that i had sewn from tall grass.
I ended up pasting it down
with no more gaps!
|Loaded with texture. i stuck down some papers|
that had musical notes to them and painted over the
tops of them in black ink.
|After all a bushfire dances like a musical orchestra!|
|Its almost looks like a grass fire!|
|I also wanted to post my jewellery |
stand that I made from a goats head.
My nephew lives on acreage and I paid him
money to walk around his property
collecting me skulls!
|I love it!|
I attatched the head to an old
lamp base and sprayed the
entire piece black.
|With the other cow heads|
i strung them in my husbands vertical
garden that he made for me.
|Loven those heads!|
|Another idea for your garden is to add|
burnt out pieces of old trees.
|Freaky! but sooooo cool!|
I love them.
|This is my painting turned upside down.|
It can turned any which way to please
its abstract so it can be anything
and go any way.
