One Word Photo Challenge – Rhinoceros

….thanks to Tourmaline for hosting the One Word Challenge

Rhinoceros?!!! Who has photos of rhinos? I’ve never been on safari but I have been to the zoo and I just happen to have some heavy duty back end shots of these magnificent creatures.

Developing More Characters

….days 141 to 143 of 365 Days of Art

Over the long weekend I was totally engrossed in creating these collage characters made from art papers. The first thing I had to do was create more art paper because I had left my collage papers at home. Out came the watercolour paper and my watercolour set and I went to town. IMG_3633

Once they dried I cut out random shapes in different sizes and then I started to play. Here are three more ‘characters’ that I created from the cut out shapes.

….thanks to Word of the Day for hosting this challenge

What’s more energetic than a 1 1/2 year old puppy? Maybe a 2 1/2 year old toddler.

My Backyard Visitor

….we’ve either got a lot of rabbits in the neighbourhood or this little fellow gets around

They’re so cute but our garden is suffering. We’ve caught this little guy in the lettuce patch, nibbling the kale and completely destroying the bush beans at the back of the yard.

The one plant that he hasn’t destroyed is the yellow bean plant.
