Callington's here!

It was my birthday this week-end.I'm a Libran an a typical one at that. The saying " I used to be indecisive but now I'm not sure" was made up for me and my type. I guess we can just see every side to a story. But that's another topic. The reason I'm blogging today is to show of my pressy! Pictured above is a painting done just for little ole me by my good artist friend Dianne Davie. I'm the one in the boots of course and the other figure is an incredibly realistic depiction of the artist herself. Dianne live's in Callington too. Just down the road actually. When we turn up to art events and such around the area people will say....Look, Callington's here! Hence the script.
There is so much to love about this painting.What fun! What true D-Daviness! Have a look at the 'things' we are towing on leashes. They are little (some are not so little) pieces of art work that we have being developing lately. We affectionately call them 'Diangos' after the Japanese word for dumpling 'Dango' ceramic sculptures created by an artist called Jun Kaneko. His are magnificent, majestic structures and they bring in the big bucks. Ours are made of papier mache, are much more affordable and have oodles more personality.It wont be long before they take Australia by storm. Anyone who doesn't own at least one will be considered a nobody!
You just have to love 'em!
