The Masjid (mosque) in my neighbourhood-this is the last of the blue skies…the sky in the summer is literally bleached..a grey/white colour which makes you actually feel hotter!!

My mum has been visiting and I took her to see an amazing quilt exhibition by the extremely talented ladies of Dubai…who knew quilting could be this detailed? As someone who can barely sew a straight line, I was in awe with the intricate and detailed works of art on display.

Another mosque in Deira…

Wonderful artist……

I recently came upon this wonderful artist, Wendy Artin,  who lives in Rome and who does the most exquisite work….mostly water colours but also charcoal and some other mixed media….I am in awe of her incredible talent and skill. Take a look at her website and her beautiful work……
