Mural at hospital

This is the mural I completed LATE wed night - it's based on the Quentin Blake picture book, "Patrick", which I love - and is in the children's room at the Day Oncology Ward at the Toowoomba Base Hospital. I really enjoyed doing it and have 4 more planned for various rooms at the hospital.
This one features an 'amazing tree' and I hope the kids who have to lie on the bed for chemo, can lose themselves counting the cupcakes and other ridiculous things that are on the tree, and forget where they are, even for a moment.
The chicken is a little addition to a framed painting that is on the wall at the end of the bed.

My baby is 10 on Wednesday!

James had a brilliant ice cream sundae/playgym/DS party on Saturday, and his cousins were here to join in the fun, which was great. So my creative energies went into an extra special Spongebob cake. Decorated with 4 batches of buttercream frosting (that's 6 cups of icing sugar!) and of course, it was a sponge cake on the inside! The kids were all terrific, the weather was a bit dodgy, but all up, a wonderful event!

Congratulations Claire & Tone

My lovely friend Claire, married her sweetheart Tone, at a lovely wedding on Saturday night. I finally finished a painting that I promised her quite a while ago. It's a good feeling and I hope she loves it.
