Spring is here (well Autumn Actually)

In the northern hemisphere spring has arrived. Here in Australia it is the end of summer, which is a shame as it has been very wet and no real warm weather. So I’m not ready for autumn (fall).

However I realize my main market is the northern hemisphere , the US to be precise. And you will be looking forward to spring.

So to celebrate here is a pretty spring design of cherry blossoms. A painting I did this time last year:

Photo of Baby Rainbow Lorikeets

I took these photos of two cute baby rainbow lorikeets after the rain. They landed on my deck and just started preening themselves. They seemed to be totally unaware of me. I felt it was a rare privilege to watch them and even rarer to be able to take these photos:

These photos were one of my inspirations to start up my Zazzle website Clareville and one of the very first series of designs I put on gifts.

Click here to look or click on the photos. On some gifts I was able to put a close-up of the feathers creating a wonderful colorful texture.

I would love to know your thoughts, so please comment below.
