"Treasures of the Sea" and the markets...

Don't you just love long weekends? It's Sunday night but it feels like Saturday! :)

I've finished off the mermaid painting! It took a few days. This latest painting is a pretty big one - (60cm x 30cm x 1.5cm) - and it has quite a bit of detail in it. It's called "Treasures of the Sea" and it features a hot pink/maroonish mermaid with all sorts of nautical curiosities around her. Shells, flowers anchors, a sea compass, pearls, a wheel from a sunken pirate ship...

  The original painting is up in my eBay store for $260 (or you can buy it on Facebook for $250). If the original is out of the question, there are also prints available in 2 sizes:


 It's been cold and rainy today here in Brisbane, Australia - perfect weather to snuggle up and watch movies (and paint!). However this morning we did venture out to the markets to get some fruit and vegies, and I managed to find this little treasure:

"Where Did the Baby Go?" - Little Golden Book 1978 edition.

 It was one of my absolute favourite books as a child, and I've been trying to find it for the past few years - to read to Miss 3. So I was stoked to pick it up for $1.

Wade also managed to come across a little treasure for himself: 

"Mario Kart" for Nintendo 64.
 Old skool!

Tonight I'm going to be working on a big update for my website ( It probably won't be ready for another couple of weeks though.

That's all for now! Hope you've enjoyed your weekend so far. xo
