  • Show us some of your stuff

    We have been sharing some of our photos and I hope this continues. But I would love to see some more of your work.
    So how about some more of your cards, scrapbook pages, cross stitch, quilts, artwork or what ever.

    Here is one of my pencil portraits. It is of my brother and his family. I gave it to him for his 60th birthday.
    I have scanned images of lots more but can't find them at the moment.. my computer storage is like a rabbit warren!

    PS Just noticed that the image looks a bit wonky. It could be the lower dpi that I originally scanned it on.

    Diagnosed August 2001

    Current IC meds: Elmiron (since 2001), Levaquin (one pill after intercourse to prevent UTIs), Effexor (for depression & anxiety)


    Past IC meds: Amitriptyline (Elavil), Hydroxyzine (Vistaril), Detrol LA, Lexapro (for depression & anxiety, but also helped my IC) (They all helped, but I was able to discontinue them.)

    I've been virtually symptom free and able to eat & drink whatever I'd like for about 8 years now.

                        Very talented people here. Love the drawing and the scrap booking pages. I do mosaic, I did three tables for my kids as Christmas presents. Still trying to figure out how to post it though.

                            Thanks for your kind comments.
                            Ok here are some more but I seem to have reached my upload limit on Flickr.

                            They are of His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet

                            My daughter Hilary Pamela and my son Campbell John, these were all done a few years ago, so they have all changed by now.

                              Kim, where did your photo go? I had a quick look this morning but had to get off. When I came back Poof! all gone

                              Bianchi how about taking a picture of your tables for us to see? I love mosaic stuff but just couldn't get it together right. Mind you, I'd be good at breaking the tiles into peices.

                              Barb, when I was growing up, it was my ambition to win the Archibald Prize which is an Aussie prize for portraiture. Never quite made it to the paints that it required. Anyway, I left school and started a fine arts degree part time but found BOYS in my first year..Arghhhhhhh! Ambition, concentration all that stuff vanished in a wonderful haze of dating etc. So I stayed working in the bank for 20yrs and only really came back to the arts after my kids were born.
                              Now I give portraits for presents and when my friends or family need a gift for someone. Sometimes, I think I'm being a bit cheap cause all it costs me is a piece of paper and pencils. My cheapo hubby thinks its wonderful.

                              I wish I could go back in time. Where's that darstardly time machine when you want it!
