found myself this wonderful little hill top position next to the Botanical Gardens where I wheeled my new (oh I love it) painting back pack late each afternoon and painted.( found wearing black was the go ...people give you a wider birth...one doesnt look so friendly...unlike red a beacon for the curious)...This quadtych was my favourite piece. I am working with smaller sized and better quality paper.. ..prefering the hot pressed paper as it is smoother.
besides the food , and getting distracted in the delightful retro shops big time...the highlights were visiting the Wendy Sharpe retrospective show twice at the S. H. Ervin Gallery (i so admire her dedication) and discovering Kate Rhodes (i so admire her letting go ), and it was a delight to meet Pat Hayward potter( so quirky , so one off...trouble is that also means you cant actually order anything ...got to just be at the right place at the right time...next right place being 13 May at Maitland Gallery ...to be considered

These are my drawings from a Plein Air painting trip to Mt Warning. It was such a magic location facing the Pinnacle... had to go back for more the next day.
