Sketching, LandArt and Unicorns

This post brings some cool to those of you in the northern hemisphere who are suffering in the heat. The photos below were taken in March 2018 in the UK when temperatures were a lot more chilly. The story and photos are by Katherine Owen whom I've only just started following. I just loved, Loved,... Continue Reading →

Sky Blue

According to Wikipedia, "Sky blue is the name of a colour that resembles the colour of the sky at noon". Don't we all enjoy looking up into a beautiful blue sky? I couldn't help thinking of a verse from an old song that goes "Blue skies, smiling at me; Nothing but blue skies, do I... Continue Reading →

Life Lessons

This colourful photo caught my eye recently and I thought how beautiful the buds and flowers are. The photo was taken by Natalie Scarberry (Texas, USA) and the plant is in her own garden. Natalie let me know a few hours ago that this is a Red Yucca.

What Do You Fill Your Mind With?

On July 23 I introduced you to Natalie Scarberry and her beautiful and colourful (colorful in US) blog  Sacred Touches. She shared with me that some of you have since followed her and that she's received some very nice comments about her and her blog. It gave me a lot of joy to hear that... Continue Reading →

There's lots of warm bright orange at her home page, and all of her posts feature colourful imagery accompanied by encouraging texts that are often brightly coloured as well! She...

Beautiful Be’s

What would you be?  I love it that Jodi's posed this question. At a personal level it challenges me to be aware of my responses when interacting with strangers. It would be nice to think I'd respond in a warm, friendly manner even if I think they're being annoying, unthoughtful or rude. I could give... Continue Reading →

Giving and Receiving

This week has been a very unusual week for me. On Sunday I was one of four participants who spoke at an art gallery event in Dunedin about Colour. I called the talk 'My Colour Journey' and shared about me, colour, and my experience of blogging. My delivery fell well short of what I aspired... Continue Reading →

A Good Yarn

This'll knock ya socks off! There's a very talented lady in Dunedin who hand dyes wool in various colours to resemble the plumage of New Zealand native birds. Her name is Loris Ives and I met her about a year ago when I wandered into The Potters' Co-operative shop at 14 Stuart Street on a... Continue Reading →
