Photo of a tree at my workplace. I really like trees. I didn't use to. I woke up one Saturday morning about 2 years ago and was suddenly interested in trees and planting natives. Before that morning, gardening was just a laborious pain in the trunk. I don't understand it. Something went click. Now I have natives everywhere. I talk to them, invite them in for coffee, and a game of cards....you know I've stretched the truth. Anyone who knows me is aware that I hate and despise card-games of any description. Card-games are like sleeping pills, along with their cousins, computer games.

Drawing/mixed media painting
The picture was a part of a series related to the human nature. We're always either putting our hands into something we shouldn't or trying to extract them. Sometimes its all a bit ambiguous. Sometimes there is that frozen state of inactivity where you are neither in or out.
Talk about going from the sublime to the ridiculous.
I work as a high school art teacher so last year I created this bit of gaudy crochet and taught a class of year 11 teenagers to crochet. All I can say is the torture was exquisite and very rewarding for me. I had the idea to post this image because I was looking at the perfect crocheting technique of a friend, Fi, posted in her blog.
