Latest Sale Noosa Sunset Acrylic Painting
 This painting was sold at my U3A display at Noosa, the owners home was named " Noosa Sunset" so it was most appropriate. The time has passed quickly in the few weeks since our return from Turkey. After catching up on two years of travel news  Number 2 son is settled back living in Brisbane ,on the tread mill of working 12 hour days after  fun and frivolity travelling the globe. Im sure it wont be long before he is off trekking  again.
My other excuse for no new paintings is surfing the net planning and booking another trip in the new year to Central Europe. The work is just about complete and I can now think about getting involved with new paintings.

Can you smell my French Yogurt Lemon cake,? It should be ready for afternoon tea. This is the second time Ive made it so hope it is just as good this time.
Its time to try out the cake....yum

Turkey Return

Ive just returned from Turkey after 6 weeks of exploring an amazing country with such colour and diversity, hence a long break between blogs as I am not as computer savy as some. Having taken my sketch book with me I hoped to find the time to get some sketching in but I think I only managed to find two  sketches in my book. I did take lots of photos so hopefully they will provide some inspiration. You need to take fellow artists with you if you really wamt to slow down and take the time out to do these important things,that way you can really see what there is out there. I did not see much painting at all in Turkey, in fact I cant remember any except in the lobby at Forapart Hotel in Datca. I guess the carpets and handicrafts as well as the wonderful ceramics and mosaics provided a great alternative. I was was pleased to have some sales at the Harbourside Gallery Tewantin when I returned and also at the U3A at Tewantin. Time to get busy painting again. So happy to have my youngest son home after a 2 year world tour of exploration.
