Blog Break

Watercolour on Saunders Waterford Hot Press 425gsm
56cm x 42cm
Contemplation is hot off the easel and the last for a while as we are taking a five week break.
I am taking my paints as I will be attending a 5 day workshop with Fabio Cembranelli in Queensland. It will take us a week towing our caravan to reach the workshop as it is more than 2000 kms away. After the workshop we will be holidaying and taking our time to get back by the end of October. Depending on whether I can live without all this social media interaction or if internet is easily obtained I might not post until I get back. Over on Wash a Week Challenge blog I am scheduling a few posts so I am not so far behind when I return.
A new exhibition opportunity came up this week called "Waterways", to be held at Clayton not so far from where I live so this latest work and three other bird/water theme works will be there for the one day event on October 31st. My studio walls look totally bare as my paintings are hanging all over the state but what better timing can there be.
Time now to pack the painting travel kit and say goodbye to my Studio. Contemplation for me too as to how I will manage with out my daily studio fix.
