I can't believe it has been 8 months since I last posted anything. Well, I haven't really had anything to post. I got a new job and it has basically consumed all my time! I have never been so busy. I wish I could say things have settled down and back to normal - but not quite.
I have been busy this past week making pioneer costumes for my children. They have headed off today on a pioneer trek up in the Riverland. They needed to dress like pioneers, they will be cooking and eating like the pioneers, and basically living the way the pioneers lived. They have handcarts that they will have to push and pull to carry all their provisions. I'm sure this experience will give them a far greater appreciation of what our pioneer ancestors sacrificed and they will sure appreciate having a shower and the mod cons when they get home.
I have signed up with Julie Prichard's and Chris Cozen's "Texture Town" online class. Sounds like a lot of fun - make a total of 11 paintings using quite a limited selection of materials. Check it out Texture Town It is self-paced so I don't have the pressure of getting things done by a certain time. Hopefully it will start those creative juices flowing and help get me back some "me" time.
