At last

At last I am just starting to work on and finish some of my projects. I did some work on Pandora fromd Marilyn Radzat's online class. Sorry for the terrible pictures. I think I had the settings wrong on the camera. It is still not finished so no doubt I will be taking some more pictures at a later date sometime and I promise to take better ones next time. I completed and set these Paverpol figures up in my garden. They have been sitting indoors in a corner for more than a year now. I didn't put them out because I found out that I had not soaked the cloth well in Paverpol so white patches kept appearing at places. I have now painted them with acrylics and weatherproofed them and stuck them on that ballard. Lets hope they will survive the winters. I want to actually put them a bit further into the foliage so that the green foliage will cover the concrete ballard eventually. You see the almost empty patch at the back of the figures. We had a big bush which I thought was a Lilac. I kept waiting for it to flower every year but that never happened. I found out recently that it was a wild variety of Lilac which basically doesn't flower much and keeps putting out suckers. So we took it out last week. Only after it came out I realised how much of space it was occuping. Now I have planted some rhododendrons and Azealeas and a Japanese acer there.
This is my Peony. It is for the first time that this has flowered so well since we came to this house. It was being overtaken by another bush that we had to remove. Now we can see its beauty and smell the fragrant flowers.


  1. Oh my Shashi - your talent continues to blow me away. Those PP figures are amazing. I love the way you convey motion and activity in your pieces.

  2. Shashi
    oh my I do love the new piece you are making but also your lovely garden ornament- thats going to be very pretty in your garden. and I am so envious of you- you can grow Peonies and azaleas and rhododendrons in your garden, in the sun - eek there are some great points for living in your climate

  4. Your Pandora seems to be coming along nicely, Shashi. I love your garden ornament!! I'm with Bear...our harsh Australian sun in Queensland makes it difficult to grow a lot of the pretty flowering shrubs.
