Playing with painting

I'm taking part in a little exhibition called "Postcards from Rylstone".  Local artists, parents and friends have been asked to contribute some work that will be auctioned off to raise funds for our local school. Here are two of my little artworks that will be auctioned off. I have a 3rd one but have handed it in already, will have to photograph it later (it's my fave)

Acrylic paint, pen, tea bags, vintage book pages, japanese paper and lots of fun!

vintage stamps, old flip number cards from a broken alarm clock, acrylic paint, pen.
Isn't it a super idea? I love the thought of everyone getting creative for the school. Whether they're artists or's all just a bit of fun really :)

And *ahem*  the invitation is extended for anyone else who wants to get involved....hint hint?? Although all works need to be returned by the 28th of October.

If you are interested than just let me know. I can send a wee little canvas to you.

So yes, I didn't end up going to Mudgee today. Even as the drab weather turned out quite pleasant. I ignored the laundry, dishes and vacuuming. Plonked down, watched Sunset Boulevard and painted.

Bloody awesome day.

P.S Sorry for the dodge pics. The camera and I are not friends.

Absolutely gorgeous! I really like both, but might lean towards the birdy one a bit. Lovely!

Ah wonderful, a followup post on your day... and it does sound like it was fabulous! Love that you left all the boring stuff aside, we all know it accumulates as fast as you can get it done anyway :o/
What a great idea for the school fundraising, your artworks are magnificent, love the alarm clock one, such a clever an unusual concept and design. I hope they sell really well for you, no doubt they will! xo

They are just gorgeous Alisa, and sooo creative. The photos are fine and show the detail well.
