Colourful sunset Bec - black & white

Hello hello! Isn’t this year just whizzzzzing by? It dawned on me the other day that we are almost half way through 2014 – say whaaaat?
For me it’s time to refocus on this years goals and anything I’d like to work on to achieve them before the year is over. One of my main goals being to create a calendar for 2015 full of watercolour drawings!
On Wednesday night we went to Rhys Darby… He is doing a comedy tour called Mr Adventure – pretty sure I got a 6 pack from laughing so hard. Anyway if you’re not sure who Rhys is there is a video link below – you may recognise him from Flight of the Concords as Murray!

Rhys Darby in New Zealand

This weeks…
Article: A series of images of the traditional life in the Siberian Arctic. I love this insight and the emotion portrayed in the beautiful pictures. It’s so far from my life here. Truly stunning.
Video: The best of Murray Hewitt from Flight of the Concords
Quote: ‘A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions’. – Ahhhh yes. This is perfect.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend planned. A few home DIYs and some thrifting is in order for me. Plus a trip to the market for fresh flowers & coffee dates :) xobec

Monthly Recap

2013 June Recap

Again… this month has absolutely flown past. Gearing up for Art Expo Nelson has been my main priority. I have 11 works that I am submitting and they’re all completed and being framed (yipee!). I am really looking forward to seeing all of the other wonderful artists that are involved. A few of my favourite pieces I am including are: Doodle Doo, Floral Paris, Dragonfly and Red Poppies.
I also shared two photo editing app reviews here and here – these were really fun to experiment with!
A few of my favourite photography posts were: Hidden in the undergrowth, Ginkgo, Raindrop Red Rose & some New Zealand Landscape shots.

This month is about getting back into a routine with my art, working on a blog design for an extremely amazing Nelson photographer, saving for my holiday to Japan, brainstorming ideas for my birthday in September and starting to brainstorm for Christmas designs and market stall layouts – exciiiiting!
What do you have instore for July? Anything special?
Thank you all so much for the love, support and comments on Clouds of Colour – you are all super stars! xobec
