Being busy is no excuse


kate pastel, originally uploaded by sigh clone.

I got mysef a great CD , Little Eve by Kate_Miller-Heidke... and I'm chalking up some serious Ipod hours with it ... the tune "Don't Let Go" is a bit of anthem for little moi at the moment

"First of all I apologise for this long period of silence.
Being busy is no excuse to pull away and lose touch with my friends."

Don't Let Go - Kate Miller-Heidke

2 minute (& a bit) torso

finished with pastel As painted in acrylic (see video below)
i was waiting for a big weather event ...yes a true cyclone ...thought it would be a great opportunity to paint ... and it was ...but my inexperience with acrylics is clear so i did need to "finish" off with pastels

Honesty about art and nudity

I do get a bit sad at how the USA-based self absorption about the moral high ground (which they certainly don't occupy) dominance in the politically correct self appointed web 2.0 police tend to categories my humble efforts as UNSAFE on Flickr, pornographic or even worse being called tasteless ...but heck I see beauty in nudity and something to be celebrated, no appologise there ...(just look away if you are easily offended) ...so I was pleased to see this BBC report.

back to the 2 minute torso



No better way to get the creative juices flowing again than to tackle a 2 minute torso and a good coffee (at the same time) ...happiness!
