Sunset at Mooloolaba

08 August 2016
I took this photo today and wanted to share a pic of our big girl Valiam. She is happily berthed at Mooloolaba Marina and it's great to be able to step on and off rather than get in the dinghy.

I've been writing rather industriously chapter by chapter of Salvage in my Sarong - Lati's story. A walk on the beach was in order after being hunched over the computer all day. I took this shot just before I climbed back on board for a sundowner.

Hi all,
I'm just sharing some of my artwork with you. The drawing above is a pastel I drew on the island of Kythnos, Greece. It will be included in my new book 'Salvage in my Sarong' due to be published by the end of the year.

There's a link on the left somewhere for my art page on Facebook, 'Scribbling Barefoot & Mosaic Art' or you can

If you don't do Facebook there are some photos of my artwork in this blog's gallery.

I mostly draw from life and lately I have drawn from what I see on our travels. There is now a Facebook page called Art on Boats. It's a closed group but if you would like to share your work, ideas and techniques just send a request to join. We only allow advertising on market Saturday's.
