The Changing Seasons – March 2019

Dear Readers, can you believe that it is already March?  So here I am, commencing my second year of The Changing Seasons challenge.  I’m feeling battered this month, like an incumbent government that is falling in the polls even though the economy is performing well.  Don’t the punters know that they have never had it so good?  I suppose that is because we don’t live in an economy; we live in a society, and there has been a fair bit of societal ugliness going round.  So yep, although I want to crawl under a rock or hide in my own little “Canberra bubble” (sorry. in joke), March was mostly good for me.

Art For Boldness Sake

Continuing the turtle theme (see my post of 13 March 2019), today I am sharing a photo of a mosaic I made a few years ago of a turtle (in abstract).  I love bold colours and, in winter, when my garden is devoid of colour, my colourful mosaics are sure to make me smile.

F is for ….

Fairy and features.

Dear readers and fairy enthusiasts, a while ago I decided to make a mosaic of a fairy.  Every garden needs a fairy, right?  I had never made a mosaic of a human-like form before, so I expected it to be quite challenging.  And indeed, it was.   It turns out it is difficult to mosaic a tiny face, all of 2sq centimetres, and I made rather a mess of it.  Nevertheless, as imperfect as it was, my friend decided she would buy it for her grand-daughter.  Read more

Mondrian Madness

I’ve been inspecting photos for my forthcoming October Changing Seasons post.  What this has revealed is that October has been busy, busy, busy.  Aggghhh.  No wonder I am exhausted.  So I am giving you an off-the-shelf post today, My Mondrian Madness.  I love the gleam and sparkle of ceramic tiles.  They cannot be beaten for lustre.  Here it is.
