butterfly recycled plastic water bottles Sustainable art

Last of the 800 recycled plastic water bottle butterflies cut out and painted for the large ‘Lotus’ painting.

A few concerns about the muddle of what butterfly goes where, amongst the 32 rows and 25 butterflies in each row. Underpainting of the canvas started. Testing greenish, grayish, blueish sections to see if any work better than white.

Fabulous time on Buffs beach at sundown time. Swim, Border Collie play, braai, great wine (Morgenster Lourens River Valley 2012) and scintillating chats.

With Colette sliming down her product range and focusing on an Easter range of hand crafted chocolates, the large display stand has been moved out of the studio and I have more space again.

Homtini pass, still challenging.

Knee (the ACL!) still not enjoying hills and the rain limiting the amount of cycling possible. Still, the most amazing sunset running in this part of paradise.

Terry spoilt us with her Terrine de campagne, which we enjoyed with a keto gnocchi and spinach starter.

Virtual walk in Italy has reached the slopes of the Apennines, and the tiny village of Poggio Bustone (314km ), with its sweeping views of the Valle Santa di Rieti.

  • Such handsome cyclists . . . . 🙂 Well done to Terry for her 314 kilometres down, how many to go? Please tell her from me. x You deserve a medal for the 1,000s of butterflies you’ve cut up so far. Someone needs to have these hanging in his or her home now. Hope it happens. x
