She began to create

Somewhere deep inside I've found this person who really loves to create. This is my second ever painting (under the gentle guidance of Donna and with the fantastic book "Taking Flight" by Kelly Rae Roberts). Its a mixture of paper, acrylics, oils, pastels and water colour crayons. Had lots of fun and learnt heaps - like where NOT to let the paper join (chin of face!!! - Grrr). But all in all really loved experimenting with different mediums.

This is the lovely Donna, a creative soul who has encouraged me to begin.. A fantastic mate who I will sorely miss when I leave Geraldton in less than a month!!!! Who will I find to create with and enjoy cups of tea ...... whilst the kids always play happily???

Sorry for the crap photo of this one. A precious record of some great mates the boys have here in Geraldton. What a great day we had at the Greenough wildlife park with these crew.

Anyway, kids have awoken from day sleep and are trying to trash my office. Must go. Do I dare start a countdown - 27 sleeps till we leave Geraldton for Perth, then the US for a month and home to NZ 30 Nov. Oooh so much to do. So little time.

Hope all is well in your slice of the world.

Love Mel xoxo
