Queensland Floods

Queensland, where I live, is currently experiencing the worst natural disaster it has ever seen. Our rivers are flooding, and 75% of the state is now flooded, with over 16,000 homes expected to go underwater. There's currently over 90 people missing and 10 confirmed deaths.

Fortunately, we live in a part of Brisbane that will (hopefully) not be affected too badly. We're high and dry at the moment! :) Many other people haven't been so lucky, and the Premier has created a Flood Relief Appeal in which you can donate money towards the people who have been affected.

I'm assisting in one of the only ways I know how at the moment! By painting and giving the proceeds to the appeal. I've created an auction on my Facebook page for my "Peace Angel" painting - and all proceeds will go to the Flood Relief Appeal. The auction is on from now until 6pm Sunday evening (the 16th Jan). It's a great way to donate to a great cause and also get some original art for your money! Postage is free, and I will post Worldwide. Good luck! :)

  1. What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is
    also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee,

    The image can be seen at who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
