Burning the midnight oil ... got completely engrossed in painting late yesterday afternoon and put in a very long session when really there had been other plans. Oh well! No photos of that yet.
Instead here's a couple of snaps from the saturday workshop up the coast. 14 of us in all.. it went far too quickly. Maybe the need to get some paint on canvas yesterday same from being in such a beautiful area over the weekend (see previous post) ... and this wonderful class who turned up with the most fantastic finds from the bush and coast-line near where they all live. We managed to fit in slow time for close observation drawings and then some much more experimental painterly work on paper... where was I with my camera for that?
Tonight Ive been going through notes and material on seeds and biodiversity for the weekend event I'm doing... I found poems and quotes I'd saved, basically everything I needed and more. I liked the lines from the piece below:
"each latent cell puts out a future,
unfolds its differing complexity..."
If you are in Brisbane on Saturday then come along... I put all the details about the program here for you to read and you can go to the Hillbrook website to see the program, list of stall, speakers and entertainment. There's a fabulous recycling set-up for computer gear, bikes, clothing... you name it.
Sutainability Day falls on the weekend of World Environment Day celebrations which I posted on here at this blog and here at the Homage blog recently. The UN titled this year's WED theme " Nature at your service" and the year is dedicated to forests... so as a tribute to trees I'll include these thoughts.
|loved this tree I photographed at the Wellington Botanic Gardens in New Zealand.|
Its on my screensaver'... along with other travel photos and everytime it
comes up on the large screen I have to stop and gaze!
Enjoy your weekend everyone... I'll not be around for a few days really!
