ALL TIED UP

A painting that I finished recently of fishing boats in the harbour called ' All Tied Up' . I am spending a lot of time at the easel these days ..so much to be done in this half of the year getting ready for exhibitions later on . Looking forward to a trip to see the Archibald's at the gallery of NSW ..the year isn't quite complete if I miss out on seeing this fabulous portrait exhibition ..

SOLDIER'S POINT ROCKS

I did this painting 'plein air' while away at Norah Head . It was a wild afternoon. I just completed the painting as the rain started and then there was a frantic pack up of easel and paints . We all got soaked but it was satisfying to get my painting done.

PAINTING TRIP

Hello everyone,
I have recently returned from a fabulous painting trip to Norah Head lighthouse on the NSW central coast . eight of us Plein Air Girls stayed in the historical lighthouse keeper's cottage. We go on these trips away 2 or 3 times a year and we always have a great time ..spending time in lovely locations with like minded friends. We all take turns at choosing and organizing the location..this time Anny did the honours and what a great choice !. Highlights of the holiday were scouting around the area for good painting spots with camera in hand, watching the sun setting on the lighthouse while sipping wine on the verandah of the cottage , enjoying great food and rolling about laughing as some of the characters of the group shared tales and stories in the evening. It was interesting to go on a tour of the lighthouse and climb to the very top ..what a view ! We all enjoyed painting various views and aspects of this lovely area and the 4 days went by way too quickly..Oh well now back to reality ..still painting for an exhibition in July and October ..never a dull moment !
