A little update about Christmas markets....
I will be at Eumundi Market this Saturday and then on Sunday in Brisbane at the Young Designer Market. The following Sunday ( the 11th Dec) I'm taking a flight down to Canberra for the Bus Depot Markets. Haven't been there in two years so I am really looking forward to it and to catching up with some good friends as well.

I'm currently flat out...I've got that usual pile of emails piling higher. Over the next two weeks I will be finishing off 6 commissions and then when I get back from Canberra another 4 before Christmas. They are all mandalas except one. The mandala above is one nearly finished for Ann.

"To Be Able"
75cm x 100cm ( 29.5 x 39 inches)

Acrylic on Canvas

Original Sold

This painting has been done in memory of my late uncle and below is one of his many beautiful poems that he left behind...xx

To be honest
in a way

you are able

To be able

not to say

the things you want

To be softer
on yourself

than on others

To forgive them

for things said
all unaware

To be trusting

to admit

you really care

To be bigger
than the smallest
broken hearts

To be greater

than the sum

of all the parts

To be worthwhile

as a human
at the last.
