new published pieces – Gean Tree Press

It is always exciting to receive news of published pieces.  The Gean Tree Press has published, in their June 2009 edition, 2 haiku, 3 tanka, 3 haiga of mine.  I have uploaded half of them to the blumoon site.  (Will upload the other half tomorrow).

Please do visit Gean Tree Press  and read all the wonderful poets featured in this, the first issue. – the link will also be up in my blogroll at my poetry site.

i am travelling to Bali in a couple of weeks and i am thinking of doing another ‘foundart series’ …. see the first one here .  And with that in mind, i have been playing these past couple of weeks …

looking forward to seeing where these end up (as art and in places) ! ….  >>> Gina

may photos – pray mantis

This cute fella stood his ground when i  stuck the camera not an inch from his face – i realised later when i downloaded this that he could probably see his own reflection in the lens and was behaving naturally.fynearts 003

i had the camera on continuous so i got the full movement but not all the shots had the face in focus

Unbelievable. .. that yellow rose is called ‘freesia’ – a beautiful clear yellow with a most gorgeous scent …  this picture is  shot from the hip on my afternoon walk.  But freesia is blooming in my garden too !  Remember it is winter down our way.

okay … dont get too weirded out … i have a wonderful collection of bones (birds, rats, the occasional skull of a farm animal) …  when i find a dead animal in my garden i place on a particular rock – and leave it there for as long as it takes (many weeks) and the ants, rain and other busy dealers of nature clean up the bones nicely.

I then drop whats left into bleach which cleans it completely and whitens the bones.  They are stored according to size and in this case the animal – this is a bunch (bundle? slew ?) of snake bones …

so beautiful.  I use them in assemblages and hope to show you one day when I get them up onto the net.

stay tuned – i have been painting the last few weeks and have an idea in progress … >>> Gina

exploring a cemetery – Strahan

how lucky to find this spot while exploring the area – luckier even to have such a beautiful day within which to do so …
