Lately, every time I go outside I come across trees that have sprung into blossom over the past couple of weeks… This is one of the times when I think we are lucky to be living in South Yarra – an area in Melbourne where the streets have been lined all the way up and down with single varieties of trees, so if you go up certain streets, you find yourself walking all the way under white or soft pink trees and softly drifting petals whenever there is a slight breeze – pretty!
It has inspired me to do a couple of spring paintings – here is the first and I have a white blossom one also underway, will post it up as soon as its finished, promise.
I have just added this to a shop on Felt.co.nz called “felt aid” – a shop selling all sorts of cool handmade goodies donated by all sorts of lovely people to help raise money for NZ red cross to help out with all the damage in Christchurch after the recent earthquakes there. I’m not sure how long it takes them to load all the wonderful things up on the page, but it should be up in the next day or two – will update with a new post when I know its up for viewing. In the meantime, the shop has all sorts of other wonderful things that you can see by clicking on the following link : http://felt.co.nz/browse/user/feltaid go on – go check it out… its for a good cause thats close to home and you may find some nifty things perfect as treats for yourself or a loved one… or even to stock up with if you’re uber organised with your christmas shopping!
