I keep forgetting to post that I got 90% for my second essay for uni, I was so shocked I emailed my tutor to tell her she gave me somebody else's results! lol
I have just over a week left for my first two units (22 to go), so if I go quiet for a while it simply means that I am busy with the 3rd and final essay and my portfolio for submission...fingers crossed it goes well...I'll be happy with a 50% pass mark on either of those...although more is definitely better lol
and a big thanks for those who emailed to find out how I went with my allergist appointment...for those who don't know...I had a 3rd anaphalactic (sp?) attack late last year and it was the worst ever...they kept me in hospital over night and I was in and out of consciousness...they said I nearly died!!! scary! But here I am still.
anyhoo...I now have to carry an epipen and antihistamines with me everywhere I go and I am totally banned from any and all seafood...heartbreaking! I love fish and chips and all the other yummies...but it's better to be safe than sorry...oh yeah and no more Asian cuisine or pizza just in case a little bit of prawn finds its' way into my mouth.

(Also known as divisionism)...painting with dots...I've never even thought of doing this style before but studying towards my BA in art has opened doors to new experiences for me, so here is my first effort...a green tree frog clinging to a leaf, click on images for a close up of my A3 sized painting, you will see lots and lots and lots of dots.

I am so glad that my landlord is fine with me "exercising my artisic self", besides..the pantry door was way too drab lol
One of the current assignments I'm working on for uni has me painting a surface in my enviroment to "create a new tension", I think I've captured it well...what exactly?...now see everybody has their own interpretation of things, I think of "calmness beyond the norm"...see what you feel...and feel what you see :)

I decided to put the pages in the book, where they belong, to see if I was further inspired to add more...but I decided they look just fine as they are...what do you think?
The little wing is the "sign-in" card that the book's owner asked all artists to decorate and sign.
