AH, THE BIG CONTROVERSY - australia day on january 26. just change it. it used to be the last monday in january, always a long weekend. why not just revert to that and let us all celebrate the diversity of the country.
it's divinely cool this morning after two days of 40+ - last night it really rained for the first time in months. everything outside my bedroom window is looking damp and green as i write this in bed at 7am after a really good sleep :0)
this week -
working on the book every day, not producing much but i think i have the first illustration - a monoprint fresh off the press. i'll do some refining with dark pencil and white but i reckon it's ok. i'm off to photograph holly today, i used her in swan lake, she's very responsive to the camera and what i need so hopefully i'll come home with some good reference to go on with.
BIRDBATHS - so important in this super hot weather, the birds shelter in trees, under the carport, under the house and on the verandah. i leave extra dishes of water there and the birdbaths are always busy.
