To Bendemeer and back

Last weekend I travelled to Bendemeer (Tamworth district, NSW Australia) for the opening of the “Colours of Autumn Bendemeer Art Show” where I had seven paintings hanging. It was my first show. I made several paintings while sitting outside under several trees. My current aim is to work on painting from life more.

Here is the view from underneath one of those trees; the little starbursts on the left are cobbler’s pegs which hitch a lift in socks and jeans. Isn’t nature amazing? Imagine evolving to cling onto socks? How did they know?

I have also been putting a lot of time into joining up to and uploading work to Red Bubble. There are thousands of artists and artworks there. Go and have a look!
