I fell in love with Philippa Blair's art back in the '80's. In particular, her folded and painted canvas' known as the tepee series. Way out of my price range, but I was able to afford a couple of her lithographs. 'Mon Coeur' above, was part of a series of her works featuring hearts.
...Russian model and founder of Naked Heart, a charity that raises funds to build play parks for children in urban Russia, because they believe every child should be given a secure environment in which to play.
I'm a little behind in my blogging this week. Making the most of an overnight trip to Sydney will do that. So many people, so little time. I'll be giving you the chance to win your own quick trip to Sydney when I finish editing my photos today.
My first heart picture this week was not planned. When I went to wash the board where I had been cutting mango hearts I found the marking above.
...and you know I love my books. Which book is this you are wondering? It is a book I bought for myself at Christmas - The New Portuguese Table by David Leite. Bryan's maternal grandmother was Portuguese. Sadly I never had the opportunity to discuss food with her.
