David Welch: Artist

 This artist, David Welch, caught my eye as I browsed the Charles Hewitt gallery site. These 3 paintings in particular from his series The Road to Wee Jasper capture something of the shimmering heat of the Australian landscape. Currently there's another series displayed on the gallery website called Girt.

Renovated Beach Shack

Renovated beach shacks are always warm and inviting, with that holiday feel. A bit of escapism for this grey and cold London Tuesday morning!

I love the interior decoration of this restaurant in London called Sketch - very artistic! It's designed by Turner Prize winner Martin Creed. The diagonal coloured lines just work, and all the mismatched chairs, tables and sofas look wonderful in this setting. See link here for the press release.

Sydney and Manly cushion covers

I've been playing around with the idea of turning my retro Sydney and Manly Beach prints into cushion covers printed on a panama/cotton. I've researched some digital printers to find out the costs for small print runs which turn out to be a bit expensive, but I think it could be worth trying! Do you think they work as cushion covers?

Inspiring women : Peggy Guggenheim

Peggy Guggenheim (1898-1979) was an avid art collector, creating her own collection of modern art which is now on display at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice. She knew (and even married) some of the most famous names of 20th century art.

natural beauty

 I found this cute home in my Real Living magazine from Australia. They have a lot of nice stuff on their website here. This home is a beach house in Victoria renovated into a lovely family home. I especially like the bright colours throughout the home!

a Melbourne home

 I saw this on Heather Nette King's blog here - the home styled and article written by her. Such a lovely colourful home!

Dad's camera

My Dad was into photography (and sports cars) at an early age. He taught me a lot about photography when I was a teenager and gave me his SLR when I left school so I could use it for art college work. I took over 200 black and white photos on our family trip to SE Asia when I left school (that's 6 rolls of 36 exposure film which was quite a lot in those days). On my recent trip to Sydney I brought back a very old camera of his; a Miranda. It's probably not a very high quality camera but it's so cute, I couldn't leave it to rot in the cupboard it was in.
