Geometric Friday 8

A Drain

Yes, a simple, ordinary drain but a drain has many geometric possibilities. Wherever I go now I seem to notice geometric shapes and I photograph these as often as I can. Sometimes with my phone and others with my camera. This time I had my camera handy.

I always mean to just have one image – one simple straight from the lens image – but it never turns out that way because I  always get carried away. Someone told me recently that they though that making art is a kind of meditation. I think they were right…time does fly and it IS hard to stop. I also find it hard not to end up with an orange work..I consciously have to keep changing colours. So a little orange has crept in here.

Thank you for  participating in this new meme and remember, it can be a straight from the lens image – unlike Mandarin Orange Monday, which is more about “playing” with photography (photo art) or any other media. One day I will play around with paint again..soon.

Getting Ready for the New

A walk through the park means experiencing nature….but often nature that has had a little help from us. Here…the end of a palm’s life…but soon a beginning for the new..I hope.

It might just look like a pile of rubbish…but it caught my eye in the early morning light.

Old Farm Structure

I am not sure what the original purpose of this shed was, but I do know it was a farm building, no longer used, but I think an interesting part of the farming landscape. If you go driving around the Cooma district of southern NSW, you might just find it;

And now it is your turn to join in the fun on Geometric Friday. Remember, rules are simple – geometric shapes should be dominant in your image and of course it must be your work. It can be a photograph (straight from the lens), painting or art using any other medium.

From Winter to Spring

Snow and Flowers

Originally I planned to show pictures of snow – a fairly rare thing in Australia. But then I thought – those of you in the Northern Hemisphere would probably prefer to look at flowers. So that is what I did – I added a flower for you especially.

A Country Fence

Geometric Friday this week is about a fence…a fence near Bowral, in the Southern Highlands of NSW. The property is a dairy farm.

Since I now work Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Geometric Friday usually ends up being finished often Friday morning, sometimes even late Friday morning. I will continue to try to get it up earlier…but at least it is now still Friday morning:)

Thank you for joining in and sharing your geometric art last week. I look forward to see what you have done this week. Remember, geometric is the only rule. It can be straight from the camera photography, digital art, painting, fibre art…any kind of art.

Geometric Friday 5

_6GeoFriLogo3smWEB

 

My contribution to Geometric Friday this week is a single window – a very pretty window surrounded by ivy, which overlooks a peaceful garden. The window is in the original “older” section of Hopewood, where I relaxed and “revitalised” recently.

I also used my stay  there to “get on track” – meaning no more chocolate binges, among other things!

Last night one of my  7 year old students gave me a huge box of chocolates. She had planned to give them to me on the last day of term – little did she know back then I was right in the middle of a chocolate binge! Unfortunately, I was away sick and she said she was very disappointed when I wasn’t there. Me too! Aren’t little children wonderful? :)

Turquoise Fantasy

During my week away at Hopewood, I was determined to become a gym junkie again. So as well as taking part in as many exercise classes as I could, I also joined the trainer for the morning walk. You could walk at whatever pace you wanted – each trainer had her own way of accommodating for the difference in ages and fitness levels. Most of the walk was through streets of huge new homes with great expanses of lawn and “garden features”. My favourite wasn’t one of the million dollar mansions, it was this tiny little house, built in the late 40’s – early fifties (like the house I grew up in). Both the house and the fence were painted bright turquoise and highlighted with a colourful cottage garden, both inside and outside the fence.

Next time I will show you images from the other walks, the Wattle Walk and the River Walk – the natural bushland that lies to the west of Hopewood.

LIGHT HOUSE – a small child’s construction

Today’s images are based on a tower of chairs which sat in my study for two days and was the source of much  fun for our grandson  –  and much clutter for us. It was actually much taller than it appears here..with cushions stacked on top. The containers  housed  secrets ( some I am very glad to have rescued just now!). No. 4 has Matty’s choices of colour.  Perhaps another time I will show you one of the cubbie houses he often  builds in the lounge room:)

My apologies for being  a little late again this Friday. As you can see..there was much construction to be done and supervised…and deconstruction.
