Well I didn't get through most of my "To Do" list this weekend but I shall endeavour to attempt them once again next weekend. As always I got totally absorbed in my Saturday drawing festival - it's just too much fun and too all encompassing to put the pencils, pastels and charcoals down and stop!
Top is "Femme Fatale" which literally means "Deadly Woman" in French! She is a ravishingly attractive temptress who tends to lead men astray. She is the classic film noir heroine. "Femme Fatale" is also the title of a a pretty groovy song written by Lou Reed which appeared on the first Velvet Underground album: The Velvet Underground & Nico. He wrote it about Edie Sedgwick the "it" girl of the early 60s and Warhol's muse for a few years.
Below is something completely different! The Great Auk utters his pearls of wisdom which I felt were particularly appropriate today seeing as it was a Monday.
I think Monday was a a bit tricky for me today because I had such a lovely walk yesterday. It was a stunning autumnal day here here in Sydney which was perfect for an epic harbour foreshore walk. Below are some photos of a yacht race that we passed at around 3 o'clock in the afternoon.
I thought they looked so pretty with those red sails!
Hope everyone else had a lovely weekend too!
