Monday inspiration Tammis Keefe

Sometimes I get little flurries of busy times. I cannot stop for a second. I like to keep busy. Other times I just need to kick back and review everything. Just lately I have been taking it easy...for reasons I shall explain at a later date. 

What have I been up to? well I love reading blogs and art books. I am fascinated by how an artist develops their skills, the journey and findings along the way. 

I am also loving Etsy....you could say I am addicted. I have made a few purchases and made some new friends. In the future, I will post my findings, favourites and purchases.

To start, I have an obsession with textile artist Tammis Keefe. What is there not to love?

Neat to keen is a must look.

Life Drawing















After my pursuit for a local life drawing class, I finally found a course, enrolled and completed it. 10 weeks, Once a week for 2 hours, I found this course enjoyable. Will do it again at some stage. I have added a few of my drawings to my blog. Some drawings are too nude for publishing, above are the tame drawings.
