A meeting of minds

I went to a meeting today, in fact I went to several. This is a welcome novelty for the new self-employed me. After all, I don't have any team meetings unless I decide to talk to myself in the mirror, so spending time discussing exciting internal communicationey things with real people was actually rather fun. I spent the day at a client site where they fed me pancakes. Life is good.

I also got to spend some time today on the nation's biggest car park. Yup, the M25 did not disappoint readers. I guess all the commuters heard that I would around today and decided to join the queue to see me. What it is to be famous eh?

Speaking of which... I just watched the BRIT awards on TV. I feel I missed my calling... I should have been a pop star. Imagine getting paid for raiding the dressing up box and prancing around on stage. Ahh. It's a hard life for us mere mortals, having to wear 'normal' clothing and being frowned upon for singing in the workplace.

No doubt you are bemused by choice of illustration this evening. No, it's not an Enya album cover... It is in fact a little entry for the Three Muses nature challenge. I just didn't feel like writing about the natural world this evening...

A coloured pencil sketch mixed with some of my photographs of warmer days...

  2. Ah yes, I often look at people on tv and wonder at the career choices that led them there. Of course I am insanely jealous, who wouldn't want to prance around in clothes given to them for vast amounts of money that then enables them to drive fancy cars and vacation where they will. Oh yes, I am green and it's not quite St. Patrick's day.

  4. You're funny, Lisa--I wouldn't mind being famous either, or at least have the money to do anything I wanted to do. Love your challenge piece--love the photos!

  5. Sound like you're a little tired today ... the ebbs and flows of life ... hope to get a glimpse of the Brit Award today (if UKTV decides to broadcast the show in Aussieland at all). Did read the newspaper of Lady Gaga winning 3 awards. She's such a fantastic performer, but I could never make sense of her outfits. And who would you be as a pop star?

    Thank you for all you wonderful and encouraging comments to my latest creative venture. You made me feel like a million dollars gals! ;)

  6. I've looked and looked at this unusual and interesting piece. I still can't decide if it's a combination of inks and pencils or acrylics and pencils. Whichever, it's very special. Thank you for sharing!

    Anyhow, I say, let's dress up and prance around in the name of, um . . . art, life, living, creativity - whatever! I often feel like i need more fun in my life - any excuse!

  16. When I look at Lady gaga, I just wonder if she'll ever make a decision? After all, she's still making some pretty scary choices...
    However, I like your choice of flower girl with floral background. Really cool Lisa!

  17. finally I am here, Im at my random boring job today which is reception at a health clinic in the niddle of no where so i get to blog all day.
    lovely picture, i do love the little purple thingies?? what are those!
    I used to be obsessed with the spice girls in my 20s and those boots, ohh how i wished to dress up every day like them. i do look rather ridiculous at home but tone it down when i leave the gatem just a tad. i would hate fame, like the money and love the creativity of styling my personality for all the public to see, but being famous these days looks really dumb. yay for living on hills in the middle of nowhere!
    ok i have all your other latest posts to get thru.
