Where does time go?

It's true what they say then, that time passes more quickly the older you get. I have no idea how half the year has gone by already - I blinked and missed it.

Still running behind with my 365 journalling - June isn't finished but at least here is the page at the start of the month all summery ready for the nice weather that has eventually arrived.

And because splodging and squirting is so much easier than writing July is miraculously ready to go before June is done! I am feeling suitably delinquent for procrastinating on the diffucult and playing with ink instead. We have lots of fledglings of various sorts feeding in the garden at the moment so this birdie theme was a must.

And here is another inky diversion. I made this little canvas for my son to take to Taiwan to exchange as a gift with is counterpart in the University Orchestra. Because red and gold are percieved as bringing good fortune I based the colour scheme around those colours and added the word music in English and Chinese symbols with gilding foil.

Unfortunately the planned joint concert arrangements fell through at the eleventh hour so he has decided he will keep it instead.
