“I Can Hug Trees Too”

Just thought I’d post this as it is something a little bit different from my usual cute and fluffy wildlife animals!  I came across some cicada shells on a tree on a recent lunch time walk in Whites Hill Reserve in Brisbane and so I attempted to sketch them..  Then I realised that, yes they may not be cute and fluffy, but they do belong to the wonderful natural landscape and the order of animals called ‘Tree Huggers’ which classification covers a wide range of animals which includes koalas, possums, snakes, and nature loving humans.

Brisbane Painting & Drawing Meetup Group – March Meet Up at Moora Park

It’s that awesome time of the month again when I join the Brisbane Painting and Drawing Meetup Group for a social and fun arty get together.  Last weekend on Sunday we were at Moora Park in Shorncliffe enjoying the fresh air, sounds of the waves hitting the shore, and in some great company.

In the morning I sketched a couple of palm trees, some people, an ibis and a few characters that are rummaging around in the back of my mind.

It’s always greatly inspiring to see the diverse range of creativity amongst everyone else who goes and also to see other parts of Brisbane I have yet been to.

In April, I will be arranging the meetup and it will be meeting at the Maritime Museum on Southbank.
