Today was hot, so we blew up the inflatable pool and sat in it all afternoon eating icey-poles and drinking cold beers. I painted my dear friend Mel, who I have painted before a few times. We had such a nice day but now I am exhausted. Hopefully the heat will break soon, I'm waiting for some rain!

Oh yeah, this is my 200th blog post, yay!


  1. Lovely painting for your 200th post!! I'm hanging out for a break in the heat also, before we know it, it will be freezing and we will be hoping for some sun!

  2. Funny.. you want the heat to break and I want the snow to melt. Do we always want what we don't have? :)

  3. Ah, I love this! If I come to Australia, will you paint me?
    Also I wanted to say, in response to your previous post about blogging...I remember, all those years ago now (!), getting that email from you and getting confused with your persona Lola Montez saying that you liked reading my blog and whether you should start one. And all that. I can't believe how many years ago now it was, but there you go. Crazy! And then getting random, surprise collaged postcards from you in the post, all the way from the other side of the world. Much love x

    1. Yes! Yours was pretty much the blog that I saw and thought, I can do this yes! And then sent you an email. We must start sending postcards again, that was fun. here's to 6 years of friendship xx

    2. And I would be honoured to paint you. You are welcome at my place anytime.

  4. You really makе it sеem sο easy with your
    pгesentation but I find this tоpic to be aсtually ѕomething that I thіnk Ι ωould never understаnd.
    It seems toо complех and very bгoaԁ foг mе.
    I аm looking forward fοr your nеxt pοst, I will trу to
    get thе hang of іt!
