Writing is not like painting where you add. It is not what you put on the canvas that the reader sees. 

Writing is more like a sculpture where you remove, you eliminate in order to make the work visible. 

Even those pages you remove somehow remain. -ELIE WIESEL
I was asked to share some original art work by award winning artist, Kathy Shell. 

You will see more of her art work in her Kathy Shell website and Facebook Kathy Shell artist page. This work is of Rhododendrons painted when she was the artist and art tutor at the award winning Buninyong Gallery.

The black swan is a part of the background scenery in book seven, Flame, in my Dreaming Billabong series. 

The example of how the male takes two years to court his mate, they dance together, feed together, and after a long courtship build the nest. 

He cares for the offspring and the couple remain faithful for life. When the kids are old enough, they chase them off.  

What an example of great love and parenting.
