Usually I'm complacent about the Sydney winter – for its lack of extremity and length – but this year the present arrival of balmy nights are welcome as we embrace the warmth with some outdoor art. It's hard to get this little mite to sit still and draw inside for more than five minutes so giving her free reign with the chalk and our back steps (door, floor, dishwasher...) allows her to draw and move about freely and me to clean up after dinner without her clinging to my leg. This piece was inspired by Zeph via Rothko.
And I've still been lurking around Op Shops, albeit with no supporting funds. Luckily this gem was only 2 bucks – which PB brought to my attention the whereabouts of in the back seat of the car. Thank God for change residing in couches and cars and spare handbags on weeks like this.
