Easter Sunday Mosaics
A tip for kick-starting creative projects: Do something that involves others, thereby tapping into positive collective energy.
The garage mosaic workshop grew out of some casual conversations with friends. It culminated in a wonderful group of women, friends and friends of friends, coming together to learn how to create their own special pieces using tiles glass beads, shells and anything else they fancied from my collection of mosaic material.
Tempted to give away my stash on more than one occasion, but so glad I saved them for a time to enjoy seeing other’s creative work evolve. After many years my mosaic mojo has returned.
Some beautiful barbed wire grass self-seeded on a bare patch in the garden where a formal path branches off to the wilder part of native plants and the banana patch. Zeroscaping at its finest. As if by intent, the three clumps of grass grew in a row along what will become my mosaic stepping stone path. That’s what I’m working on now.

I’m writing submissions to the Draft Coastal Hazards Adaptation Plan, Draft Bushland Reserve Strategic Management Plan 2021-2026. I’m also overseeing some contract work at a local coastal reserve. But I will find time to oil the timber on my beautiful new wooden easel this week so that it will be ready for action when all the submission writing is done.
