Mixed Media Collage

I had a visit on Monday from Hector and his friend, John. They have been touring Western Australia and whilst staying in Fremantle found the time to come up to my studio in Bindoon.
Hector is part of the Contemporary Clay Instructors Programme and we had met up before when I was teaching in Sydney.
Hector made a mixed media collage on art canvas board. It depicted aspects of his touring journey. We had a good time playing with alcohol inks,water soluble oil pastels, embossing powers and a variety of other mediums.

Sudden Loss of Tess

I am very sad and lonely, my border collie Tess, has died. These are some photos that I would like to share, they show her characture a little. 
Tess was infact my husband's dog. When he abandoned me he also abandoned his dog, infact he only took the things that were important to him.( the farm handtools, our fishing boat and our camping gear) He didnt even take a photo of Tess or Ruth our daughter.

It's her watermelon!
Tess and I went camping together

I am lonely without her.
