209:365 Composition with wet sticks and metal shelving. Oh it's a miserable wet and cold day today and I was feeling rather uninspired as I trudged around with cold fingers toes and nose. But in the end I got there. #ephemeralartjourneysdaily #patersononeaday #oneaday  Cold grey rainy day/perseverance is required/and wet weather gear #oneadayhaiku

Fancy a weekend up in the mountains at our lovely little holiday house?

Fancy a weekend up in the mountains at our lovely little holiday house? It's available this weekend and we are opening the doors to the studio too an no extra cost if you fancy getting a bit creative. The community markets on this Sunday ( my personal favourite- where the locals rock up selling the veggies from their own garden- gotta love that) and if you're a vinyl fan the record fair is on at Glenbrook too. It's a good weekend to be up. If you'd like to book find us on Airbnb.com.au/rooms/12530812?S or follow the link on @twiceluckyblackheath We'll be here too and if the weather holds  we might nip down to the lookout for a glass of wine at sunset - you could join us. Cheers!

One A Day 206:365 Composition with rusty wire.

206:365 Composition with rusty wire. On a dirt track with my new mountain bike this morning rediscovering my local 'hood from a different perspective. Found a giant twisted length of wire and did a spot of basketry then sped on up the hill. Excellent fun.  #patersononeaday  #oneaday #ephemeralartjourneysdaily  red dirt rusty wire/ a shiny new mountain bike/ Monday's adventure #oneadayhaiku

One A Day 200:365 Composition with grit and gravel.

200:365 Composition with grit and gravel. I went for a walk today and came home empty handed probably because I just knew that I had to make something with yesterday's delivery of road base and concrete dust that will shortly all be spread over  our front yard. So here we are. Heavy stuff when piled up in wheelbarrows but looking delicate and jewel like right now.

6 tons of gravel/To spread across the driveway/All in a days work.

One A Day 197:365 Composition with protea stalks and last years spent flower heads.

197:365 Composition with protea stalks and last years spent flower heads. Many people grow proteas up here it seems.  Every other house has a mature rangy protea bush in flower in their front garden. So I planted one in ours yesterday too. I know they aren't strictly a native plant but they might as well be. I love them.

Many people grow proteas up here. It seems like very other house has a mature rangy protea bush in flower in their front garden. So I planted one in ours yesterday too just to keep up. I know they aren’t strictly a native plant but they might as well be.

Cold hands in dark soil/Planting protea, like me/Almost a native.

One A Day 182:365 Composition with pine needles and forest.

182:365 Composition with pine needles and forest. I think the most successful compositions are the ones that have minimal interference from me. Just a little bit of gathering and reorganising  of nature and that's it. Not always possible but today in this lovely quiet pine forest on my neighbours property, it was.

One A Day 173:365 Composition with flowering tea tree sticks and freshly turned earth.

173:365 Composition with flowering tea tree sticks and freshly turned earth. Lovely tiny white trumpet like flowers sprinkled with pink bits are out on the tea tree bushes at the moment. Look like they are dusted with snow. But no snow today - it's a clear blue sky in Blackheath this morning.
