Here is a painting i did from my memories of life on the beach at my parents place, Rye, Victoria, Australia. My brother is in the deckchair and my mother is walking Madra the dog in the sand dunes. I am looking into the scene from our boat shed and a you can only see my feet.
Lovely painting, such a fantastic memory!

Just when we thought we’d lost Vexta to Brooklyn forever she’s back on our shores (albeit temporarily). Last week Vexta took full advantage of a mid-winter sunny day to paint this large scale mural with fellow Melbourne street artist Shida.

In the classic car world there are “survivors” and “restored”. My toes are in the survivor category. This Chrysler is full restored, seen along with 1000 other 1951 and older vehicles, at Deuce Days in Victoria on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, July 21.
Nice shot, some of those old cars were sooo beautiful!

I collect photobooth photos. I blog about photobooth photos. I take photobooth photos. Toes? For me, they must only be documented in a photobooth.
Not going to ask how you managed that, but it looks great!

You will surely not be surprised that a good many of my posts in the near future will most likely feature one Westley Farmboy Chickenator so if you’re not enamored of kittens, even cute ones doing fun stuff, you may prefer to look away now.
But stick around anyway because kittens are awesome!
They sure are and very cute shot!

This was taken about 49 years ago when I was only about 2. It’s me and my two brothers. One of my sisters, or my Mum, had put clothes pegs through our hair. I love this photo of my childhood.
Understandably … really adorable photo!

A railway track from 1900, a steam engine from 1954, an adventure in modern-day times.
The Puffing Billy gives you the experience of not only riding an old train, but of living in history. It is a traveling museum with authentic stations and volunteers who enjoy what they do. Riding the Puffing Billy is exhilarating for any train ride, because it gives you the chance to let your arms and legs hang over the side. So when the steam engine goes over a bridge that is only wide enough for the train itself, your heart beats faster and your mind wonders if there have been any casualties from falling off the train.
This is a ride for the young and old. It is worth the money and if you want something romantic and historic, try first class traveling, where you can dine as you take in the prehistoric views, which reminded me of Jurassic Park. It would also liven up the imagination if you ride the train while wearing 1900 clothing and pretend you are going to visit a great big new place and the normal mode of traveling is by steam engine and horse and carriage.
The Puffing Billy impresses, regardless of age, and I highly recommend it for fun, for the family, or for a date. So throw your scarf over your shoulder, hang your legs over the ledge, and enjoy the ride on the Puffing Billy!
Wow, looks like an awesome ride!

This photo was taken at my nieces wedding recently in Geelong, Victoria, Australia. The girls knew they wouldn’t want to wear their high heels while dancing, so all arranged thongs, (what Aussies call flip-flops), to match their rainbow dresses. I just love this shot. Even the bride wore them at the reception.
Nice that foot comfort is acceptable nowadays. Great shot!

“Psalm is one of Melbourne’s best multi-talented street artists and writers, never one to stick to a formula, every time he produces something, its new and fresh. Which is a hard thing to say in a culture where most involved are too. This is an unbelievable single layered stencil, that’s incredibly intricate for its size.

Naomi writes, “Today’s going to be a little lesson on painting flesh. I’m still working on Emma and going to be painting her ankles and feet. She’s sitting on a rock on the beach and the reflection of light on her skin renders a slightly blue purple color on her skin. She’s a red-head and has very fair skin too. The rocks she sitting on, will be darker shades of blues and purples with light reflecting from the sky, sunlight and water. The orange u see, is the under-painting.
The base color for flesh is Ultramarine blue and Burnt Sienna plus white. So mix up a pile. To warm it up add a dash of Transparent red Oxide. This is a very strong pigment, so just a tiny bit at a time. For the tender flesh areas, add a dash of lemon yellow to the base color.
Mix up a pile of Permanent Alizarin and ultramarine blue to cool the flesh tone down mix in the purple-blue color to the base, really depends on the light. For dry brush scumbling I use a pink mixture of permanent alizarin plus white to give the skin it’s luminosity. The tips of the toes are going to be a red pink tone because of the blood flow. For the veiny area add a little lemon yellow with a hint of green into the flesh base.
I use a mix of burnt sienna and ultramarine blue for my darks and also a dark mix of Viridian and Permanent Alizarin.
Now I’m set and ready to paint. I begin with the shadow under her right foot, then paint in the red areas on the soles of her foot with Transparent red oxide, cad red and Alizarin mixed in with some flesh tone. On the lighter tones I added a dash lemon to the flesh and the pink red tone on the top of her foot is a little cad red and alizarin mixed into the flesh base. I used lemon yellow for highlights. I blended the shadow color under the foot and painted in some of the surrounding rock.
I wanted this foot to kind of blend in with the background as it’s not part of the focal point. So subtlety is the key. “
Very beautiful painting!
