The rocky hillside shown above is showing some new growth after it was completely burnt by a "bushfire". I forget now if the lady told me that the fire happened just last year or if it was two years ago. This was on the trail up to the Barrenjoey Lighthouse. How crazy would it be to see a whole cliff side engulfed in flame at night, instead of the usual single beam of a lighthouse? How glad was I to visit while it was recovering and green and not alight. It was good timing, this time. 

Time and it's passing is a funny thing. All we control is who and what we commit it to. 

I am alright at some things, however time management of personal time is not often my strong point. The other month a friend in North America texted me stating that she hoped I was "penning an epic coming of age novel". It would be great to have actually been penning things more often (regrets again with my time usage), however it probably wouldn't be the blockbuster or page turner a small few of you might expect . haha

(c) reubenvision

Above is two lovely ladies from Made You Blush & Asa from RSX Clothing. I did some fast portrait work of the guests & models at the Launch party & Fashion Show at RSX Denim. Alley parties are where its' at & this one was no exception. I will be posting more work from the show later this week. Stop in to Robert Simmonds & flip through the drawings on the easel and check out the sweet threads on the racks. 

The Summer That Flew By

Over night ferry rides, to other provinces. 

Cliff jumping in the summer heat.

Flowers, of course lots of flowers. You can always see more on my other blog:

A one week camp councelor position in Halifax. (safety first children)

Weddings, lots and lots of weddings. 

... and lots more cliff jumping.

Work In Progress (screen shot)

currently sketching for a larger scale size drawing. I am feeling the concept of a mask but having trouble on creating the right one.

Lets Talk: Floral Print

Whether you are raiding the racks at Barney's or going through the two for $4 bin at your local thrift store, you are sure to find florals and fauna motifs galore. Done well a print can look totally chic in any scenario. I am a huge flower fan in general & must admit to having a weakness for it in clothing. 
Here is a little glimpse of just some of the floral inspiration I have been collecting.

Here in haute couture.

A simple and great choice for Fashion Week.

It does not always need to be loud or colourful. Embroidered lace on this Erdem coat looks very timeless. 

I would wear this look from Givenchy every second day all summer long if I could (bleached brows included)

& last but not least an art inspired dress from Stella McCartney.

Using driftwood that collects along the banks leading up to the Hydro dam.

Drawing From Observation

These are just three drawing that I completed in  my drawing class this year. I am working on building my portfolio & going through all of my stuff. I am not sure if these will make it in, but I thought I would share.
