This what I brought back from Cairns in far north Qld last week. I found a large platter I serve fruit on and filled the tray completely with this abundance of collected items... from the blue quandongs flicked up off the ground at the Cairns Botanic Gardens to black bean seeds pods from the Daintree River Ferry area.
My imagination is well and truly fired up by all that I saw up north. These are destined for the studio... some of them Ive already taken time to draw...
I'm due to return north for a month from September 18th to undertake a 4 week residency with an exhibition following. Stay tuned on this and read more at the website, on my blogs or Facebook page... all links are in the right sidebar!
For now I am gearing up to run workshops and a course, paint and invite the public to view the work at my studio...all part of a program to see that this next phase of work is communicated and funded.
Email me here if you wish to have this program sent to you! When it gets hugely busy one does find it difficult to find enough time in keep posting on blogs and so on.... but its wonderful to share the stories and hear from others so I will do my best!
Best wishes all!
