...a bit embarrasing, I missed out the meet up with other Sydney Sketch Club members in the garden. I expected it at 3:30. BUT it was 3:00! (Thank you, Liz for "baby sitting" of this big girl!)
The jazz players had concerts at Vista Pavilion. After separating from Liz, I went back there and sketched this. We, sketch club members often get together in front of the "Palm Grove Centre," the shop in the Botanical Garden. Friends, could you guess what's hanging from the tree behind the shop? Many nuts? No, too huge as nuts! Tourists' bags? No, too high to hang on. What's that?
They are BATs!! ʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞBut, bats~(*o*)~ ? Yes, bats or another name, "flying foxes."
Bats hanging on trees always give me this image. Shhhh... once, I made this illustration for a picture book... ʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ
(*NOTE: It's a stuffed toy, not a puppy in the story.)
Bats are stars for tourists. Even though Sydney siders are not happy, becuase they enjoy farmers' fruits and do dropping, but being protected by law. Mmmm....from bats' point of view, we, humans are invadors. Hopefully, we can find a compromised ground to live together peacefully. Lastly, the notice from a friend, sketch club member.Melting Pot of Love-Charity Group Exhibition for Japanese Earthquake victims Created By: Nao Hirata.

Well, the Sydney Sketch Club makes me very busy and productive. Brillinat. How many sketches do I make per week?? My updating date is Monday, but in fact, I need upload work more. Otherwise, sketches will be piled up!
Anyway, I hope one day, I will enjoy sketching with You, my blog friends all over the world ʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ.
Have a wonderful week and happy painting!!
