My latest exhibition is coming up, finalising the last few paintings, time to paint all the egdes then let dry & varnish, time to send out some emails and put the word out! I'm looking forward to hanging works in the same venue, on the same walls again, with a very similar theme, 11 years after the last time I did it !!

With the ending of my latest lease my residency in the Fremantle Town Hall is at an end, a big thankyou to City of Fremantle for granting use of the heritage listed building as an art studio, and a big thankyou to all the wonderful people I met throughout my time in such a great location

I'll still be in town regularly - time to hit the streets with my pochade box, on to bigger and better things!

I've finally moved the home studio into the loungeroom - no more painting in the cold! more space!
and a couch to sit back on and analyse the latest mistakes !!

I still need to build a big wall easel and a better taboret, but it's a good start - really making it easier to finish the paintings for the show...
