Public holiday on WOYWW

It's Anzac Day here in Aus,
A day to remember all the brave men and women
who fought for our freedom
and it's a public holiday.
My hubby went to his school's
Anzac day service
(Little miss had hers on monday)
and so I thought I would be smart and get her some little canvasses
to paint while I get on and do some art myself.

For once, she was a great little girl and did just that,
so I was able to get a painting drawn up
for this weeks Artist's Playroom.

The theme this week is rainbow and I decided to do some bright flowers.

Not much to look at yet but by the end of the week
I hope it will be as bright as the photo I am working from.

Here is what my little miss did.
If I run out of time to do my picture,
I'm sure this will be a fine entry for the week.

I haven't had much time to do any art because I was getting 
brooches, cards and paintings ready to take to the Collective store.

Last of all
this is what happens
when you are not concentrating
on what you are doing.
Yes, that's my digestive biscuit
floating in my cup of tea.
It's blurry cos I was in a hurry to fish it out
before it sunk.
Gotta hate that.

If you are wondering why I am telling you all of this
go over here to Julias Stamping Ground
and you will find desks from all around the world
showing what they did on this 
what's on your work desk wednesday.


  1. A fab post with gorgeous photos! I love the animal art that little miss painted, she is very talented :)

    Have a great WOYWW and a fab week, Luv Karen xx #75

  2. Hi Vonny, I've done that with biscuits in my tea many times LOL, usually end up with cold tea too.
    Great work space love your flower painting and fab brooches. Your little one's canvasses are fab too.
    Happy Anzac day. x
    Hugs Erika.

  3. Love those flowers you painted. I hate dunking biscuits, hope you didn't end up with a mess of wet biscuit at the bottom of your tea cup!

    Ps I also have saturated canary candy on my blog

  5. Your daughter has definitely inherited your talent! Her canvases are brilliant, she has a real eye for shape and colour.
    I like your prep drawing ready for painting - actually, I could live with it in its raw state, I'm a real sucker for black and white art - even though I love coloured fabric. Bonkers, huh??
    And dunking biccies - bleurgh, how could you?? Lol.
    Hugs, LLJ #33 xx

    Happy WOYWW #174

  15. Ah your daughter has your talents. Love that giant daisy type flower canvas, my word, it's prolly just as well that I don't live within purchasing reach. Amazing sketch of the flowers from the print, please don't forget to photo the process!

  16. Great post! I love your art and you should quit undermining yourself cause the brooches etc are art too! You are very talented and it looks like it has passed on to lil' miss too. Have a great week and thanks for commenting on my blog! Vickie #41

  17. That looks like a great sketch and I'm eagerly waiting to see it finished.
    Your daughter obviously has your arty gene.
    I had to laugh when I saw your cuppa because the only time I leave a cuppa unfinished or to go cold, is when I'm busy being creative ~ at any other time it would be sacrileges!
    Have a happy WOYWW and thanks for popping over to my place :D

  18. Well you are first on the list to ask for an ATC so send me your snail mail addy

  20. Love the pics you did of the big daisy the blue in the background really pops that yellow. The emus are fab too like there expressions on there faces :)

  21. Oh your silly birds! They just make me smile so. I think your flowered painting will come out just as bright as the photo. Cute animals that Little Miss did. Such talent amongst you all!

  22. You are a very talented artist! Everything you have shown is just fantastic. Your daughter definately inherited mom's artisic ability.
    Happy belated WOYWW
