This is a very quick post today as I am making hay while the sun shines... we've had so much rain of late that I am excited to be able to paint on the veranda... so instead of lingering here pop over and see what I put up on the studio blog... the latest paintings in process ....but first a glimpse here!
ps: have found much inspiration through tumblr, pinterest etc of late...must get back and share that here soon!
Working on these two paintings alongside each other as they are having a conversation. The birds kept coming up on the veranda... butcher birds ... which have the most wonderful song. A family member kept singing to them... quite amusing! Between Radio National, the birds, people bringing cups of tea and a gentle breeze reminding me Easter/autumn is coming it was all very pleasant.
Just as well... State elections here on Saturday were a nightmare.with the ruling party wiped almost out of existence. We are left with anew government just as enamoured with the Miming Industry as the last and fracking about to commence on the western side of this City!
Back to the sanity of painting for me today! I am pleased to say that the mini-campaign I ran with Gabrielle (last post) was successful in reaching a broad audience thanks to many who spread the word in any way they could. Homage to the Seed Facebook page (LIKES WELCOME!) saw LOTS of welcome activity. Because there's no private friend FB site all the wonderful new traffic sharing this story was most appreciated!
I also have connected with more people locally which has been lovely...and feel surrounded by others sharing similar concerns.
