Sunday's Six Thoughts

1.  I've been blogging for a year now, 151 posts, 9571 page views, 544 comments, 84 followers - it's been a lot of fun and it's been great to read other people's blogs and to meet new people.  Thank you all so much for following my blog, for reading and leaving comments - I really appreciate it.

2.  I decided to change the background of the Mean Girl painting and had to begin by re-writing the words, then I will add more sewing pattern paper and a translucent glaze either in purple of blue.

3. Some beautiful sunsets this week...

Last night...

Friday night...

4.  Tomorrow is a public holiday here in Perth for Labor Day but my hubby is off to work for a few hours to get some work done whilst no one is there and my sons have to go to Uni so I'm home alone again - I guess I'll paint....  :D

5.  Very hot here - about 37C/100F - great weather for swimming in our pool.

6. I have a new button on my blog and will make a big announcement about on Tuesday!!!

Have a great weekend everyone, enjoy your art and take some great photos.


  1. Oh those sunsets are so truly beautiful. Isn't it amazing when you capture something so amazing through the lens.

  2. I love that you are creating a painting calling out your mean girl!

  3. 84 followers!! That's awesome Shell. Congrat's on reaching your one year anniversary. i look forward to more reading more creative posts and art from WA :) Fi

  4. I’m so excited that you are coming to stay with us! The year will go by fast! We should finalize our plans by June, I think. Whenever you know the details, just pass them on to me! I wish I could ever afford to travel, it’s so exciting to see the world from a different perspective. I have not been outside the US since my wedding 19 years ago. I was lucky enough though, to travel to India every 3 years or so when growing up. I think every US citizen should spend at least an overnight stay in a third world country. The world would be a better place!
    Your country looks beautiful and amazingly different from the Northeast US, so I love to see your photos on your blog!

    Take care,
