Here is my interpretation.....
Cafe Contemplation! 

My lovey took this photo of me at one of our favourite cafe's in Heidelberg recently. A quick snap while I was watching the cricket! I think I went overboard with 'the touch of blue'...but I do like how this layout turned out on the core flute board.

here is a close up!

 Please come join in over at FS2S this month, we would love to see
your take on this challenge :)


Flip Flop Fun! - ARTastic challenge for MARCH

Hi Ladies!

This month over at ARTastic challenge blog the painting inspiration comes from a piece of Aussie art work.

Chinamen's Beach by Ken Done

A little bit about Ken Done

Born 29 June 1940, in Sydney, Ken left school at 14 to enter the National Art School in East Sydney. Ken Done's first solo exhibition was held in Sydney in 1980. Since then, he has held over 50 one-man shows, including major exhibitions in Australia, Europe, Japan and the USA. His work has been described as the most original style to come out of Australia, and his paintings are in collections throughout the world. Over the past few years, Ken has devoted most of his time to painting. His works have been shown in the Archibald, Sulman, Wynne, Blake, and Dobell Prizes.

Here is my interpretation of the painting

Flip Flop Fun!

A photo of me when I was eighteen months old trying to wear an adults rubber thong.
I covered all criteria and I love the 'Swim between the flags' that I added.

and a close up!!
