But I did!

Took care of a whole lotta things, and am still super energized 🙂

We Melburnians had a very bright and sunny day today..and I felt every inch of my existence filled with such joyful energy. So lazy day can wait..

I filed all my university/school/personal paper work..WOHOO!! Cleaned up my studio, and of course kitchen..went for a walk in this fabulous weather, felt like I owed it to great mother nature for rewarding us with a sunny day in winter 🙂 Read a few of my favourite blogs, and cooked a hearty dinner for me and my boys. I also spent some time gathering visual references and various tidbits for a large size painting that I have been itching to paint for quite sometime now. Have a look at this fabulous painting at apartment therapy.

I also recently planned a whole unit on “Silhouette Art” for Year 10 Studio Arts. I am leaning towards artists like Kara Walker, and old Victorian Style Silhouette portraits.

Flowers, chocolate cake and a painting

October 25, 2010 § 8 Comments


sunshine, cake, flowers, a painting..oh love!!

Flowers..white, orange and yellow..Painting..rich chocolate cake..heaven was the place where I spent my weekend 🙂

I had a great time..had a stream of guests coming over for lunch and tea. So there was food, food, food and chai :). I started celebrating my weekend by making this small painting on Friday night. I had been painting this image in my head for quite sometime and since I had no commitments as such for Saturday morning..I took the opportunity to disappear in my studies to paint..while hubby dear kept our son entertained. We have this farmers’ market on weekends, I only go there to buy fresh flowers for my place..so this weekend hubby dear brought not one or two but three beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers..lucky me 🙂 so right now I have flowers throughout the house 🙂

hmm..she clearly doesn't eat sweets.tsk tsk

On Sunday I had guests over for tea it at my place..and apart from other goodies I made a chocolate cake with walnuts..it went down very well, thankfully I was able to save up a slice to photograph it later 🙂

So have a look at these pictures, enjoy and let me know what kept you busy over the weekend?

Spread love and joy..
