Life on this little Planet
This little scene belies it's height. if you look at the left side of the picture...there is a dark blue band...that's the ocean. That funny bit is houses and roads! We were at the top of Jeans Hill (It's a 20minute zig-zag hike up the mountain!)
Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve - Cape Nature, Western Cape, South Africa Common rock formations of these mountains that I believe are part of the vast and celebrated Kogelberg Bioshpere.
Some pretty little things on the path up to Jean's Hill.
This was our playground for over a year before our move to the farm. This is overlooking the lagoon at Pringle Bay. A beautiful place if you don't mind the baboons and have no desire to garden!
Susan Beauchemin and Martha Miller, two artist I admire, are sisters. On their blogs they like to share their different Planets. Susan asked me recently what mine looked like. So here is a little beginning.
Now please you must do yourself a favor and go explore Susan and Martha's links!
Painting Daily and Martha Miller: May 2010 (please excuse my links...I'm really not so techie inclined!)
Yes I have been drawing and painting a little. Mostly carting children to sports and caring for winter colds and sniffles. I am to start my new art class tomorrow. At present I haven't taken day light hours to photograph my work. I did try some last night but they came out yellow!
