Hello. How's your weekend going?
As usual, the days seem to just whizz by, tomorrow we have a family birthday to go to, and then it will be the start of another week, I haven't really got into a good rhythm for school routine and 'school term stuff', I am still in summer holiday mode. Better snap out of that soon!
I am joining in over at Vic's Place for My Place And Yours today, trying to get back into a bit more regular blogging. The theme this week is 'On the Wall', so here is a bit of a look at what's on our walls.
I realise our house is quite colourful when I see these photos!!
Most of the things on our walls are paintings, I used to have other bits and pieces hanging around, but when we had the walls painted, I never got around to putting all the hooks back. It was 10 years ago, so I probably should get onto that!
I have dabbled in a bit of painting over the years, and this one above is supposed to be of snapdragons........ I seem to come back to a similar colour palette in everything I do, it's a bit too coordinated for my liking, but I seem to be drawn to a certain pool of colours no matter what I do!
.......I like these 2 abstract colour paintings that were rolled up in a corner of my aunts cupboard.
I think they are happy in their new life.
I also have a fair bit of the boys early artworks on the walls, I love Andre's Toucan that he drew with oil pastels (one of my favourite mediums) when he was in prep (about 5 years old)........
......More art from the boys down the hall.........
..........this one is of a bushfire, by Andre, (age7 or 8) pretty good huh?......
Unfortunately soon after this prolific period of creativity, the art from the boys dried up and I have nothing much after they were in early primary school. Must try to encourage them to get creative again.
Having said that, Jesse is doing Visual Communications and Design as a VCE subject for year 11 this year, and they do do art at school, but they don't do much at home anymore. Sigh.
Hopefully they will come back to creating things at some time in their lives, it is such a joyous outlet to have.
........This is a bit of my 'inspiration board' , unfortunately, it is looking a bit sparse, I've had to use a few cards for presents!
......and finally this is my port-holey mirror in our room, and you can see some of Gary's Doctor Who book collection in the reflection. Yes, there is plenty of colour in this place!
Hope you all have a fun day!
