Firstly, this was the spectacular moon last night, veiled with a thin layer of cloud. Wintermoon.

Almond and orange friands baked a few days yummy, especially with the citrus sauce and double cream I served them with!

Black swans on the river - yesterday's bike ride (35 kilometers).

And finally, a new little something I'm working on - using the same pattern as I used for "Millie".

Apple Girl

As promised, here is more of "Millie" with her basket of apples. I made her basket using fine cane and her apples are rather inedibly made from painted paperclay.

Winter Cloudscapes

Such a beautiful sky this evening.........

(New doll pics tomorrow - I left it too late to take good photos today, but here's a taster...)

1971 (?) With Michael McHugh

I have been doing a lot of reflecting and remembering these past few months - that involves trawling through a large collection of photographs and slides. The slides have yet to be scanned, but here are a few mostly b&w photographs from Art School days.

Winter Music

I'm just back from a wonderful weekend making music at our annual Winter Music Camp. With visiting conductor from Melbourne, Willem van der Wiss, we managed to lick Beethoven's Seventh Symphony into some kind of shape over two days of intense work. We also worked on Cimarosa's Secret Wedding Overture. I squeezed my bike into my little Barina and took it with me, so I managed a couple of rides along the Ulverstone shoreline on some very good cycle paths.
Great fun, good music, fine cooking!

These photos were taken just at dawn this morning (Sunday) with frost all the way down to the ocean. A bracing ride, to say the least!
