Art Site

I was approached, via email, about adding my site onto a site which lists blogs/online journals, whose content is art related.

The site is -

Now I better get cracking and produce some more art (at least scan it in so I can put it up!)

Art Homework

I have finally gotten around to posting some of my art. Well, one picture of my sketches.

Each week we get set homework and this week I actually found time to do it (forgot about the laundry but am remembering it now). This pic is copied from a photo but the emphasis is on the veins as that was what we were practising in art class last week.
This week we do faces. It should be good!

The Happenings Of A Female Dragon

Is she or isn't she? That is the question. And pregnant be the wondering.

3 days ago (Tuesday) she was busy digging ditches and for a while it looked like she was trying to lay eggs. I left her alone until she decided to fill in the trenches. Once she was finished there I took a soft, large paintbrush to the trench area and searched through the sand. Not a thing did I find though. And she is still fat and lumpy, and now has decided not to partake of her favourite food, crickets. In no way does she look sick or act sick. Just maybe she is having a late in the year pregnancy. And it is quite possible since her tank is climate controlled and she doesn't have the natural weather to go by.

I still think she may be pregnant and I have a homemade incubator ready to go should she actually lay anything. If she does lay, then we will change our summer temp to autumn temp in the tank and get them ready for some quiet time before the next breeding season starts up again.
I should hopefully know something in the next few days!

Follow Up - What Type Of Snake Is This?

I have been informed that the snake in the picture is most likely a tiger snake! I just hope it has not found a home in our wall, though, the more I read the less I think it is actually making a home here and that it has just been chased out of it's natural habitat by development.
Tiger snakes (from what I read) prefer places with large bodies of water like swamps, creeks, ponds, etc. They eat frogs, mice and rats, which also would have been flushed out by the devlopment of the bush near our place. The bush also had it's own little ponds, slow flowing creeks etc.

These snakes, are one of the most venemous snakes in the world!!! I just hope it was hunting and not a female which was looking for a place to birth her young. These snakes average on 30 babies at a time and there have been cases of up to 110 babies being born!
Ok, this is all a bit scary, and since I saw it near the clothesline (which is currently full of clothes waiting to come in) I may just wear my heavy leather boots.

There is no way I want to get bitten by one of these snakes, nor have one of the kids bitten!

The Table!

Here is the table that hubby made on Saturday arvo. I helped by holding my hands close to the drill and hammer, so that the wood wouldn't move out of place, and by giving him inspiration to keep his carpentry skills in working order. (I bought two eastern blue tongue skinks!) At the moment the skinks are in the tank to the right and the one on the left will be occupied by 2 of the dragons when the appropriate lights have come into the shop that I ordered them from.

I am keeping the skink tank decorations to the minimum at the moment because they are messy and will require cleaning out every few days (depends on how much they are fed really)

The skinks are going well, loving their banana, though they didn't like the dog food I gave them the other day. I may try a different brand for them, a good excuse to change the dog food my raz eats. The crickets love dog food though...and I should probably feed them today, so I will hop off this thing, making a egg laying bed, cut up some carrot and deal with the crickets.
