Rain again on the Sunshine Coast

After a beautiful sunny weekend it's business as usual on the Sunshine Coast......rain !
Maybe I can stay inside and work on my art today instead.I have a few mixed media canvases that have been waiting to get finished ,so maybe today's the day.
After looking through some of my recent photographs of our beautiful coastal forests it makes you realize if we had no rain we would not have such awesome trees and mosses .
Living in a rain forest can be a wonderful thing [just keep your boots and umbrella handy.]

Swallows Nest Art Show.

There is a wonderful store here in our town of Gibsons called The Swallows nest;
This wonderful shop is filled to the rafters with vintage furniture,carpets ,cushions french soaps and candles and so many things to list here.
The Swallows Nest is owned by Ginny, a lady who knows her stuff when it comes to decorating your home.
Recently Ginny held an art show at "the nest"with lots of wonderful art from many local artists.
I sold three of the five pieces I displayed so I was very pleased about that.
If you come to Gibsons please take time to visit the "Nest"or

July is the month we see those spiky thistles with their beautiful flowers and soft down seeds.
I thought I would take a few photos of them for a digital collage.
This is one in a series blending in some leaves and a vintage dragonfly pin.

Some new digital stuff.

She watches as you walk in the silent forest
You see her from the corner of your eye.....
but when you look she is gone!
