Cute Little Crab
Pastelle drawing on paper. This is one of the many different types of crabs that you find on Christmas Island. I took a photo of him and then did the drawing from that.
My Imaginary Moon Scape
I did this painting around the time that the Astronauts first landed on the moon. Just something to do to keep me out of trouble.
Charcoal sketch - Freedom
This was an excercise in creating a drawing with a theme. Butterflies have always represented freedom to me. They always look so happy and free especially when flying around like in a dance. The idea behind this painting is about a prisoner who escapes with the key to his ball and chain .. unlocks and frees himself with the symbolic butterfly landing on the chains, but of course, the butterfly cannot be chained. Well! That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
Hand cast plate with folk art roses.
Another hand cast and hand painted plate. The background is again dark green to match my decor. Cast using the same method as Fossil branch hand cast plate. but this time with no branched or cracks embeded into the mold before pouring the plaster ... just plain and simple. Hand painted folk art style roses decoration. This plate is hanging in my lounge room at the present time.
