Firstly to all my blogger friends, I hope you all have a very healthy, happy 2013 with few computer problems and lots of art success. For my first few blogs of the new year, I thought I would follow the ideas of Fiona and Sara by reviewing the previous year to give you an idea where some of my travels and ideas ended up. Apart from small artist books and zines all of my work centred around my little A5 diaries. I filled 3 little books this year and "yellow line" is the first I'll show some work from. Hope they are not too personal and still have some interest for others."Yellow Line" has about 50 images, too many to show so a sample to give you a taste. The cover has oblique references to Van Gogh, the severely lopped tree in Holland and the yellow line.

The first drawing gave the book its title. The drawings are all behind the yellow safety line (like a railway platform) so should be quite harmless.( Each page started with a yellow mark.) Later drawings broke the rules a bit but were generally well behaved. I can give you more details about individual ones if you ask.

|just a taste|
"skuttlebutt","tripping blind" and "just a taste" were done on a trip recently to Margaret River where we did sample many of the delicious wines at some lovely vineyards. Stella Bella was one of our favourites that had "skuttlebutt" as one of its cheaper wines. Don't you just love some of the taste descriptions eg "poached, dark flesh plums"? The tally marks were not the number of wines consumed. Who was countng apart from the driver?
