my creative space ...

... is outside on the deck this week - drawing and reading in the sunshine.



I'm having a play with shapes and designs with a vege slant. Little Mister and I went to the market and picked up some interesting looking veges - artichokes, beetroots, radishes, and bok choy. I'm liking the artichoke at the moment - the "petals" are fun to draw.

On the studio front, there have been some delays with the rewiring, but (fingers crossed), I'll be in next week. Until then, not much news, I'm afraid.

Aside from that, my laptop and I are not speaking - it refuses to do what I want it to do (won't recognise hardware). Naughty laptop! I sooooo want a Mac! If I can get it to work, I'll be back later with my creative space part two - a nifty bit of embroidery software for my sewing machine ... stay tuned!

For some far more interesting creative spaces this week, drop by and visit Kootoyoo. Have a good one!

Isn't it great to be outside? We have been having dinner out on the deck and it's just so relaxing. Hope the computer issues sort themselves out..so frustrating! xo

Ohh I visited our artichokes yesterday and thought about drawing them too. Snap!

Sally said...

Artichokes are one of my favourite vegetables. You're drawing is great.

Oh the sunshine. It just makes your heart sing! Today, I will look at vegies differently, thanks to you Nic. They will be art rather than "what the hell would I make with that!".

My fingers are crossed for the studio and as for your laptop, you said it.... MAC MAC MAC!

That sunshine looks lovely and I can't help but wonder what it is about artichokes, I find them endlessly fascinating too.

The sketch is pretty and trust me you so don't want a mac... well, ok I love my mac but it's causing me a lot of trouble lately- iweb is not fun and etax cannot be done on macs- which means i may file my taxes late. whoops. how in the world did i get to rambling about taxes in creative space? xo m.

It's all looking so arty I'm choking.

OK. That was terrible.

You're making me hungry!! OK, so it's nearly dinner time, but it looks so yummy and fresh, even as a sketchy drawingy thingy (maybe art terminology isn't a strength of mine....)
