Post Tour Depression

It very much looks like Jim suffers it too.

He looks in a contemplative mood in this picture by “steinmiller_productions”. Casey has taken some wonderfully reflective photos of mood and feeling on this tour. His photos really give life to a scene and conjure up an atmosphere.

This one of Jim is stunning in its simplicity and mood. I am in love with it! I’d really love a print of it. It would look amazing on the wall of the bedroom of my new home (whenever I get it and move in!).

I really hope Casey sells prints. I really, REALLY want this!

Rock Pop Art Will Eat Itself

About two thirds of the way through this one, I decided I wanted to make it look a little pop art. I do like to give quite a bit of my work that pop art edge.

It was starting to go a bit Lichtenstein and I thought “why stop there? Let’s make it a bit Warhol too”.

And so, I present to you…The Lichtenhol – title needs a bit of work. Lol. I thought seeing as we like to make portmanteau words out of names these days… Warstein doesn’t sound right.

Lichtenhol? Well, it sounds a little suggestive, so…RIGHT UP MY STREET! Lol

The Boy Done Good!

The Small Steps Project showed a full list of the money raised from each pair of celebrity shoes auctioned. Jim came in 23rd place with his Prada boots. That’s not bad! Well done, Sir! Had I had the money to have placed a bid, we may have raised a little more.

I will certainly make sure that I donate to the project generously once I do have sufficient funds to do so.

Well done Small Steps Project. You guys are doing wonderful work.

Dressed For Down Under…

I saw this photo of Jim wearing flip flops (what we Aussies call “thongs”) some years back.

I thought…”Well, he’s in the thongs…so he’s already in the right footwear. Let’s ‘accessorise’ him a bit.”

So, here we are! Jim’s ready for Oz!

Wish I was! Short of some miracle…it ain’t happening 😦

So, here’s the distraction and fun. Tarting up the mister to be an Aussie bloke. Lol

Even dressed in thongs, budgie smugglers and a cork hat…I would. Lol. I would no matter what he was wearing! Wearing nothing at all would be ideal! 🤤😉
(Maybe you can keep the cork hat on. Lol)

Ahem! Anyway…

Home …

Has never felt so far away.
And no matter how I try and work it…I can’t get out there, yet.
There is just no safety net if something were to happen.

Money is just far too tight right now.
Perhaps if I could borrow the cost of the airfare, to be paid back once money comes my way (and, IT IS coming! I just have no definite date of when, just…soon). That could help.

But unless it could, then…

Nae Newcastle, hen.
