Weekly Inspirational Pictures April 29 - May 5

Apologies for being a little late with these, wasn't feeling too good over the weekend. These are all shots I have taken myself at one time or another, hope you find something to inspire.

A few reminders from what was my local beach... boat sheds



These thick huge jellyfish would come in during late summer. Not nice to swim with.



The pier at low tide.



A snack



The neighbours cat, he was so gentle and friendly



A still life I set up and painted a few years ago.



The courtyard at the art dept at TAFE



Enjoy and have a great arty week.

Great snack - I love those. That jellyfish is serious! Wow would NOT like to swim with them. But to gaze at from a rowboat, they must move in such a lovely way. Fun kitty

hi and thanks Marriam and Debby. EP I never used to stay close enough to admire them in the water... lol From a boat sounds like the best idea.

Rainy what a lovely job of Gingie. You captured the beautiful gentle expression so well.

Thanks, Jacqui. I realized after I posted this that the scanner smudged out his second eye highlight (its oil pastel and smudges easy) so I added it back in.

Jacqui, great photos - especially that sweet cat of course. Love the photo. Going to have to paint him.

Rainy, love your pen rendering of the beautiful orange cat on a ledger page, that's intriguing. They do rule the world. It's like that's saying "Some things are more important than money. Pet your cat."

That is VERY cool, Robert. I had not thought of it that way but it is so true. And now I have to draw dogs in the ledger
