My beginner private student mastered the 9 tone scale and completed both a blended and a graduated tone scale. A black and white and shades of gray picture or photograph is a tonal picture.

Charles Garfield, who has done extensive research on top performers in a variety of fields, has found that the one characteristic all of them have is a sense of mission: “Whether focusing on family, developing talents, or getting to the top of a particular field, peak performers refine their capacity to see clearly what they want.
Their mission provides the why that inspires every how.”
Violas in my garden
The Dandenongs are beautiful any time of year, during spring time they are brilliant with the beauty of blossoms, summer is cool greens of every shade contrasted with the brilliant blue, green and yellow of rosellas and in autumn there are glorious hues of gold and claret contrasting with every shade of green.

Gold, is a richly drawn, evocative, stand-alone novel.
ORPHANED, BETRAYED, and DETERMINED, Jane Mutta's adventures lead her to the 1850s Australian gold rush and encounters with (highwaymen) bushrangers. Amidst the dangers, there are rocky entanglements on a coach and steamship with the explorer Douglas Fife. To survive, she will need all her resources.
Something different in the way of romantic historical fiction. This is an adventure through humour and historically tragic events. It is more than historical romance — judge for yourself; Miss Mutta breaks stereotypes.
From an Australian bestselling author comes stories of determination to find one's place in a world that men are threatening to tear apart.
