Yes it does... I am finding it challenging to sit on my hands at the moment while I am sorting out some behind the scenes stuff and only just started on some new work last night.
What is great about art is how you have this creative mind, with lots of ideas flying around, (kind of like a hyperactive dog,) and it isn't until around 6-8 months later that the pencil/paintbrush hits the paper/canvas and "something" happens. You never quite know what the "something" is going to be, which is the exciting part.

Through this process of being very patient and getting used to never having enough time for the work that you wish to do, it makes the final outcome all the more satisfying and worthwhile with that built up anticipation.

Ferns are the symbol of NZ. They appear everywhere and tree ferns are magic; they transport you to a different era!! 🌱🌴🌿

Onetangi Beach, Waiheke Island. Being on such a peaceful and quiet community (as long as there are no holiday crowds) sounds like a paradise. Great beaches? Check. Wineries? Check. Beautiful vistas as far as the eye can see? Check. Perfect getaway destination? You bet!
