Day 3 Artists Retreat - Deep within the Forest

The cockatoo came and tried to engage me in conversation today. It is possible he was just looking for "George" (my dad's very life-like pottery kingfisher he's friends with). But either way, he was very keen I pay attention to him...but that's cockatoos for you!

Eventually... I just went outside and collected leaves along the beck...all because on my troll through the mornings emails I discovered that Creative Kids Tales have a new competition called "Deep within the Forest". Competition doesn't close till September (if you're interested) so I've got time to develop my idea. But as I feel like I AM currently "deep within the forest", the inspiration was there.



  1. cool. Is that wrapping around one of the trees? do you remember how they do it in Thailand http://www.canvas-of-light.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/IMG_2062_tonemappeds-950x633.jpg?

    1. I'd forgotten...that's beautiful. No, it's supposed to be two arms hugging!
