I’m tapping this out two fingered on my iPad from my bedroom at 11.30 at night. Why am I not using my computer? Because my studio is currently an oven. It is still 30 odd degrees celcius outside with a forecast telling us it won’t drop below 28 overnight.
Did all the food shopping, piled it into the car and drove out of the underground carpark…with the windows wide open. The moment my car was clear of the building a warm breeze carrying the scent of the Aussie outback filled the car.
Happy New Year to all of you! This year is going to be one of art and I’m starting out with the attempt to get one Piece of Art COMPLETED per week. Considering my last post, completing is something I really need to do more of.
So here be my first Piece a Week and a short story to go with it.
This one is being held by fellow Aussie, Janine Whitling and I think it might be a good idea for me to start posting more regularly here. So in the New Year, expect to hear more from me, more about me, and me sharing the work of fellow artists (with a slight emphasis on Aussie Artists).
Life has been busy of late, but there has been art. There have also been business developments, a piece of artwork I can’t share as I’ve submitted it to a competition, and various explorations in both bubblepainting and Pollock-esque paint delivery. More on those later, but now…The Squid Report!
This is a photo of the view from our front yard. You’re looking at the peak of an extinct ( or according to some people, dormant) volcano. We’re parked between the two major craters – this is the pinnacle of the Valley Lake crater. Behind us is the larger crater of the Blue Lake. We’re at Mount Gambier and because I have a memory like a sieve, this is my first Reverb post.
