I forgot to mention my exciting news… I bought a new battery for my camera!! Now it lasts for hours and hours and hours, not 45 minutes (if I was lucky). HAAHAHAHAHAH!! But seriously, it makes life so much better/easier. 😀
That being said, here are some pictures from several trips to the south coast, Narooma beach and mangroves to be precise.
The Narooma hole – we saw seals on the same day!!! Very exciting.
My beautiful and photogenic friend Rachel.
Rachel and her boyfriend Josh, hunting for shells. (I myself found a whole sea urchin shell, I was most pleased!)
And my camera battery is still going strong, muahahahah! Stay tuned for more photo uploads, including some awesome abandoned rural houses…
Hallo all, welcome to the latest belated update from the laziest blogger in town! I actually painted these quite some time ago, but somehow forgot to photograph them. The mandala patterns in the centre come from a copyright-free book of designs, and the process of drawing/painting them is extremely meditative in itself.
The phrase om mani padme hum is probably the most popular Buddhist chant used for meditation. The actual meaning of the phrase is complicated and multi-faceted, so I will refer you to this website for its meaning.
All together now:
Stay tuned for my series of chakra paintings!
A few weeks back, my dad and I did some exploring of an abandoned mid-19th-C building complex, and it had some awesome photo opportunities; not to mention being a really cool place to have a look around. Here are some of my favourites:
1. A Lonely Life
2. Threshold (my personal favourite)
3. Sun in the Sty
4. Glacial (the geology in the Cooma-Monaro area is endlessly fascinating!)
5. Stay Awhile
6. Domestic Debris
That’s it for today! Stay tuned for pictures of my cat. 😛
Here is a somewhat disparate collection of photographs of various disused mechanical objects, taken in a variety of locations.
1. Dried Out and Used Up (Taken at an abandoned retirement village)
2. Pressure Valve (Taken at the White Bay Power Station)
3. Experiments in Hue (Taken at above; as the title suggests, this one was largely an experiment in hues and tones)
Any comments and questions are more than welcome! Stay tuned for an update, and more pictures of my cat. 😛
Welcome to the second installment of pretty watercolour pictures of the Wiccan Sabbats (see part one here)! Sorry for the delay, I’ve been rather busy ‘IRL’, dealing with the horrific administrative clusterfuck that is tertiary education in this state/country.
3. Samhain – one of my personal favourites, I’m very pleased with the skull!
I’ve already started another mini-series of watercolours, revolving around mandala designs and the meditative chant Om ma ni padme hum. Stay tuned!
I’ve completed another ‘series’ of watercolour paintings, this time depicting each of the Sabbats. They’re roughly based on the Sabbat cards from my oracle card deck, although rather more detailed!
Here are the first 4, plus the Wheel of the Year poster I also did;
1. Wheel of the Year
Stay tuned for Part 2 of this post!
For your viewing pleasure, a collection of photographs of ‘old things’ from various times and places.
1. Cooma Station
2. Take a Step Back in Time (from the Abandoned abattoir series)
3. Freedom Glimps’d (also from the Abandoned abattoir series)
4. Only Dust Dances Now – the reclaimed music hall at a disused Power Station
5. Remembrance in Repose (in the Cooma pioneer cemetery)
Stay tuned for my next post, which will most likely feature delicious food!
Yet another installment in my “Goddess” series of paintings, using watercolours on cheap canvas.
The first painting draws upon Hindu lore, and depicts the Green Tara, along with her mantra in Sanskrit at the top (Om tare tuttare ture soha);
This one one I actually did specifically as a present for my sister, though keeping it to myself was awfully tempting. It’s a very “pretty” version of the Irish war Goddess The Morrighan, and the skulls are painted silver;
And here’s a bonus “symbolism painting” I did (it’s rather basic), depicting the ‘sunset’ of Christianity and the ‘sunrise’ of Earth-based worship;
(Does anyone else find it really stupid that they play Christmas carols about snow and winter in Australia? I.e. where it is the SUMMER solstice? Thanks Christianity, for ripping off pagan holidays and trying to pass them off as your own, completely screwing up the cycle of festivals that are directly tied to the seasons!![/sarcasm])
Nonetheless, I have been sorting and editing photographs from earlier this year, including pictures from Kiandra in the Kosciuszko National Park, this past winter;
2. Crisp Contrast
3. Untitled (SUGGESTIONS?)
That’s it for now, stay tuned for pictures of food and my epic Lego mansion I’ve been building!
As you have probably seen, I started designing and creating my own oracle cards around the idea of NeoPaganism in daily life; here are the black and white versions. I actually finished this a long time ago, I just have been so slack with blogging that I hadn’t uploaded the pictures; here they are, including some close-ups of my favourite cards.
My favourite cards, in no particular order:
Stay tuned for more NeoPagan art, and a tonne of photographs!
