Around here...

Around here....


To the beach! It's still warm enough for a swim- personally I'm hanging out for a bit of Winter...


Feet up in my favourite spot. Might need to tidy the bookcase.


I sanded and re-covered the second chair - only took six months or so to get round to it..


Our hibiscus is still flowering like mad, this pic doesn't capture the true startling pink of the flowers!


Some locals picked on a walk


A nice cup of tea - what I'm planning to do right now :)

Making

I've been pretty creative the last couple of weeks - last Sunday I went to a workshop about printing on clay at the Fremantle Arts Centre - we learnt how to mono-print and screenprint onto clay which was really interesting and has given me lots of ideas of new pottery projects for myself and for work.

These are my tiles which are waiting to be fired - I'll share them when they come out of the kiln!


Speaking of pottery, here's a little video I made of my pottery guys at work doing their stuff -
you can find other films by Ability Arts here.

           

Also for work I designed the poster and flyers for our drama group's latest production, The Journey.
At the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre on the 29th and 30th April - tickets are free!




I had a day off yesterday and headed straight to the op-shops - I bought a pile of old plates and a scruffy Ikea lamp base -



I've just grouted it and now I need a plain white shade - I'll show you when it's finished!

Sculpture by the Sea 2014

My only quibble with the amazing Sculpture by the Sea 2014 in Cottesloe was all the nasty little black signs saying DO NOT TOUCH THIS SCULPTURE...
When obviously most of the sculptures are begging you to touch them, climb on them, walk through them, and possibly bounce on them...
















I let Tom climb on this one...

Drawing Frenzy!

My colouring-in project at Crab Fest turned into a drawing free for all!
It was great - here are quite a lot of photos -

And a little video I made...


Crab Fest Colouring-In Project from Elli Moody on Vimeo.

Ginormous Colouring-in

Isn't it nice when a project (eventually) all comes together?
I was asked by the organisers of our local arts festival to design a big colouring-in design to go onto 18 MDF blocks - 

My initial sketch -



The finished blocks - ready to be coloured in by members of the public at Crab Fest this weekend -



I'll be down there this weekend with my blocks - trying not to get too uptight about people colouring outside the lines...

Blogging from the garden

Sitting out in the garden to catch a breeze - summer is definitely still on... 
And it hasn't rained for nearly 100 days. 
Imagine!

Noughts and crosses on the watertank...


Pecan Pie - I can't eat a Pecan Pie without thinking of Billy Crystal in When Harry Met Sally!


A sketch for a project I'm working on for Crab Fest ( yes, the festival of the crab) this weekend coming...
