avant garde conservative comments, quirks and whimsy with a mild stab at convention
An Enjoyable Lenten Obligation
Those of you who know me or who follow my currently sporadic blog, are aware that I was raised a Catholic, steeped in the conventions and rituals of that ancient organisation.
So, when Lent comes around I attempt to focus on objectives requiring some discipline. Sadly my resolve to skip one meal a day and ride more kilometers on my bike only lasted a week.
However I am glad to say that I have approximately completed one objective, which was to paint at least one sketch a day. Approximately, because I missed some days and did some in batches – but I did at least 40 during Lent.
Regrettably, like my writings, most are mediocre; but here and there a glint of almost art may peek through.
I promised my sister in law I would post them all, so here they are. Please do exclaim on the variety of colours to be found in leaves. (There is no need to mention the unsophistication of the artist – he is cognisant thereof.)
Like any good showman, the best is saved for last!

“More drying leaves” is my favourite – simple, stark, expressive.
love the “dying eucalypts”
Well observed. Leaves are great but I like the flowers!
Wow Mal I think they all great.
Not only good looking but talented too. I’m impressed! Happy Easter Mal
