Hello & Happy Father’s Day to all those wonderful Daddy’s out there. You sure are special and a dearly loved bunch of guys! I know my lil boys hearts would be very empty without their Daddy around daily to light their little lives. I’m so very grateful to be sharing this incredible parenting journey with my beautiful husband Michael, I love you so much xxx
I’ve had the most relaxing, enjoyable weekend that I’ve had in a long time, just having fun with my boys and making their Daddy’s weekend full of love and laughter. First up though I finished off a busy week with a little me time enjoying a walk in our local reserve and a morning painting out on the deck in the lovely warm air with my beautiful friend Amanda. I didn’t get a lot of painting done but I did trial something new I’ve been wanting to implement for a while. I’m going to start merging my illustrations with my paintings by incorporating a fine layer of detail in my paintings. Sometimes it may be pattern making and line work and other times it may be actual images within an overall larger image. I’m so excited about this as I’ve been pondering how I can merge the two. My paintings are free-flowing explosions of colour and my illustrations are finely detailed and black and white, so complete opposites. I want to push my painting style further. Here’s a little sneak peek of the early stages of trialing this. Keep in mind it’s far from finished (o”
I got quite run down towards the tail end of last week and even lost my voice yesterday, but I’m feeling much better tonight. Must be all the fun-loving vibes! This is lil Flynn snuggling with me on the couch and attempting to share his dummy with me x
This weekend was all about appreciating the special men in our lives, those wonderful Daddy’s out there that really know how to make you feel special, safe and loved. We celebrated our Daddy simply by spending some fun times with him doing what he loves most; spending time outdoors. Saturday we had the most glorious Spring Day. The air was warm, the sun was shinning through the clear blue skies so we spent most of the day outside at home in the garden as Daddy loves to mow the lawns, build things, prune, dig and plant new plants in our garden. I think he just loves getting dirty!! Late afternoon we decided to head down to the local beach as it was still deliciously warm. We had a great time rolling about in the sand, watching the waves, and walking along the beach together looking for treasured finds such as heart-shaped stones.
On Sunday, the weather had changed but we thought we’d head out anyway to our lovely local heritage garden “Heronswood“. Daddy enjoyed perusing the array of plant specimens, collecting ideas for his future garden design.
Have a fabulous week ahead,
