I am quite late with last week's drawing challenge post, hosted by Nadine.
These hand prints are Gigi's when she was 4.
And her art work has soared ever since.
This week she painted this in the style of Joy Hester.
One of my favourite Australian artists. It makes my heart glad to know that they are teaching students about this passionate, bold and until recent times little known female artist.
I posted about her here too....
This gorgeous piece of art has flown all the way from the Netherlands.
From Patrice's house and heart to mine.
Thank you so much! I am so touched. These photos don't do it justice.
It is so beautifully made from paper and wire and the paint is exquisite.
I loved it when I saw it here.
It is gifts like these that make the other people in our sweet blog world very real indeed. x
Especially these cyber-days.
This week I got postcards from Tokyo, for a friend's exhibition.
And also this mysterious package on my doorstep from the Netherlands!!
So exciting. Come back tomorrow to see what wonderful gift is inside...
"You have filled my tea with lumps of sugar, and though I asked most distinctly for bread and butter, you have given me cake. I am known for the gentleness of my disposition, and the extraordinary sweetness of my nature, but I warn you, Miss Cardew, you may go too far."
