Hello!!!!!

I have been here.... just an bit lazy,really should say too tired ,no time and so on... to do anything other to visit fav bloggers and window shop!
Actually its been so long I forgot my pass word to my own blog,Heavens....
We went to the Coolgardie Day thing today mainly to see our two boys works which won prizes in the Art Comp this year,very exciting and the rest of the works were fantastic.I took the obligaterypiccies of the pair of them standing rather quietly next to their indiviual pieces...This was the last art comp for the Coolgardie Art Group due to lack of support apparently but the lady I was talking to was a bit sort of bitchy anyway but looked a bit nasty upon me saying cheerfully that we at Kambalda might take it on ! You see a lot of money goes from our little town to Coolgardie and as we boomed here ,they sort of stagnated and theres still a lot of noise about where our Shire is based,Coolgardie, even though the big money is in Kambalda.They have in the last couple of years sort of caught up but that friction seems to hang in there!
First is Paddy with his painting...







Then Benji with his proud work...
Both got Prizes and I think Gift Vouchers to local art Shop..might have a look tooas Im slowly building up my own art stuff again,so far got some Oils,water colours and boards,just have to find some time and peace...

The art Teacher is always telling me they have loads of talent and he'd like to see them expand them...guess what'll be under the tree this year....
