Stormy Days with fruit tarts

A stormy weekend here in usually sunny Bris Vegas 
( otherwise known as Brisbane, Queensland, Australia!)

And faced with a rainy, stormy night, what to do?

I listened and jumped with the dogs at the thunder claps overhead, watched the rain belt down, and we stood outside for a bit and watched the fantastic light show
Then I saw the street lights go out
Did I get out the candles?
Check we have batteries for torches?


No indeed - an artist faced with the impending doom of a
tropical Super Cell ... reaches for paints!


We devoured this first packed of the season Fruit Mince pies yesterday... this was all that was left at 8.05pm, and by 8.07pm there were none left!

I think it might work up into a fun Christmas card?  This is from the iphone pic ( I love my iphone, but really it is garbage for taking good pics unless the lighting is just SO), a test run... will need to scan this for a better quality image - but you get the idea.

contact me to order cards!

Hope all Brisbanite readers are safe and dry!

  7. LOVE fruit mince pies!! Great sketch and, yes, it would make a great card. :)

    That storm last night was a doozie! It went for over FIVE hours! I woke this morning and, not long after, heard thunder in the distance, and thought...oh no, here we go again. We got hail in the storm that passed through here around 1pm. We didn't lose power, thankfully.

    hope you aren't being hit too hard... the storm that just moved here was a bit ugly... fingers crossed it missed your end of the bay...xx
