This drive is one of my favourite moments in a day - on the left the houses drop away to become the Noosa National Park with twisting Banksia and She Oaks - mixing with a plethora of other tropical beach plants ......... as you round the corners you catch a glimpse of what is to be the most welcoming swim in warm tropical blue waters - a little aqua tips the edges - then the car and/or the bike (as the cyclists peddle every weekend) tears you away until the next rise - follow the white line is a memory - a perfect day for memories given the rain we are experiencing!

MaimeriBlu Watercolors and Pigment Ink - 38 x 56 cm300gsm Moulin du Roy cold pressed watercolour paper
I've been experimenting with the beautiful vibrant colours of MaimeriBlu Paints and this week let loose on a subject close to my heart.
As a girl coming to Queensland from the Blue Mountains in NSW and then settling here, these amazing twisted branches of the Coastal Banksia - crowned with the soft brush of their flower, has almost a velvet centre and have been for me the symbol of a visit to the beach - the sight and touch of times at the beach!
