For two days now I have been trying ...with the help of Dabs.... to get a photo of myself and my husband at the top of my blog page but so far it is not happening....Have no idea why so will sort it out at some stage.

We haven't had the chance to get to Mt. Baw Baw yet so it may have to be next week now...then hopefully I can put up some photos of the Australian snow.
Happy day to all

Snow on the alps

There is snow on the alps here now so everyone is heading for the ski resorts......one of our son in laws is heading there with a group of children from the school where he teaches.....

We...my husband and I intend to go to My Baw Baw which is the closest to us and have a look around sometime this week, so my trusty Casio digital camera is taking the trip with us... hopefully lots of pics to show when we get back...we are just going for the day.

Now I must start a new painting today so this is all for now.

Birch tree lane Farm ....another view

This is another view of Birch tree Farm....Painted a few weeks ago...it now lives overseas....also painted from a lesson by Tony Forster UK

Birch Tree Farm England

I painted this study of Birch Tree Farm in England a couple of months ago now but thought that I would put it in my blog....I really enjoyed painting this subject...and I am pleased with the way it turned out...I painted this from lessons by Anthony Forster in England...I paid for 12 months of lessons and he is a great artist...go take a look at his site

Vase of Magnolias

I have completed this watercolour painting so thought that I would put it in my blog for you to see...I do hope that you will like it........I like oriental type painting's ..it is a very interesting subject for me...so here it is

What I did today

Today (20th June 2006) I went into Melbourne City and got my new Camera a Casio Exilim Z1000.....I am so excited to get this very small but beautiflu camera and hope to be able to take really close up photos to show on my blog.....so keep watching for more photos in the future.

This camera is so small that I can carry it in my handbag so that will be handy....my Kodak Digital is much larger and heavier to carry around.

I am looking for a nice flower to get a close up but it is winter over here and a little difficult to get nice flowers out now but I will see what I can do.

Tao.....Dannis brother ..resting

This is a photo of Tao resting after running around the house chasing his brother Danni........They run like mad then collapse in a heap for a long sleep

Thought that you would like to see part of our "family" this is Danni one of our birman cats......we think he is gorgeous.

My day.... Monday June19th in Australia

I cannot belive that it has taken me all day to get this blog and another photo site uploaded....but it has been worth all the effort....

I must thank my artist friend Dab's for all her help and patience....without her I would be lost...your an angel Dab's ...Many thanks go out to you.......I hope that you can now get a good nights sleep my friend.

I want to invite more friends and family to my blog ...but that can now wait until tomorrow.

Bye for now
