My Work in Progress

About twenty five years ago I started an arts course at what used to be known as TAFE  (Technical and Further Education). I was spurred to enrol after being involved in a community based learning centre – where I was learning how to make pottery  – by wheel and hand.  I wanted to learn more so I enrolled in the arts course – primarily to do more pottery but as part of the course I was require to complete other art units – I did enjoy some of the classes – especially the mixed media work, the print making, water colour etc   I enjoyed the parts of the course I completed.  The story is then put on hold for quite some time.

 

Then  last week a friend of mine who has recently started producing some amazing paintings (one she made for my office – of proteas , another she made for our sitting room –   a pink cow in a dot style – which has ow been entered in an art competition! ) wonderful work, any way I digress…my good friend suggested we have a painting day and drove 4 hours to our place and unloaded her car full of  blank canvases and painting  paraphernalia – what a great day I had.  (My good friend was very patient and enthusiastic) The flame has been reignited.  It is such good fun. I am grateful to have such a talented and passionate friend who is happy to share her creativity with me.

This is my work in progress.  🙂

On The Road Again…

Has anyone noticed the blog has been mysteriously quiet lately? We are on holiday! Our first stop – Lake Towerrining in Western Australia’s wheat belt was a fantastic place to stay ( but fortunately/unfortunately the internet signal was pretty hit and miss) hence the lack of recent communications – previous to that I have been flat out with one thing and another (including my mum being admitted to hospital – twice – and she is still there and my sister once). It has been a busy month or two.

 

We are fortunate to have been able to sneak in a quick two week break. Here are a couple of pictures of our recent stay.     This tranquil place was a delight to visit and re charge the batteries.
