Flying High

Still on the Standing Stones of Callenish, this image relates to the energies of Earth, Fire, Air and Water. I find I’m adding water more to artwork these days, in recognition of climate change and the rising power of the water element in Mother Nature. Again I’m indebted to Dina, for her kind permission to … More Flying High

Creative Fire

I’ve been having great fun with my new tablet and the app, Toolwiz. Above is artwork I created from a photo of Lake Eyre in central Australia. Amazing what you can do with this handy app!

Nasty Woman

I finally managed to track down a very nice, ergonomically designed office chair late yesterday, which was delivered at lunchtime, so back in business. Sort of.

Fire relates to passion, energy, creativity, action, warmth, will power, drive and motion. However, Fire can also be destructive if … More Fire Element

Fire of Passion

Then I switched to PicMonkey, BeFunky and Pixlr, stuffing around with all their gizmos until this … More Fire of Passion

The Sun Tree

Since I moved to North Cyprus I’ve been fascinated by olive trees.  Their grey, gnarled twisted trunks look ancient and sturdy, and I love their grey-green foliage. To me they’re the bearers of life: wood for fires; olive oil for cooking; olives for eating.  So I decided that the olive was the tree of the … More The Sun Tree
