Art

I've had a big weekend of art. For the past two years I have been learning to paint with the wonderful Margaret Hadfield, in Canberra. Now I'm working towards having an exhibition. I sold two paintings last week, which was quite lovely.

On Saturday we painted an Icelandic waterfall. Margaret visited Iceland last year and she manages to take photographs of rather complex landscapes so she can teach us to paint them.





Sunday morning a group of her students went to Lake Burley Griffin and we painted the lake. Sitting outside and painting without having to make meals or wash up or do anything except paint was like meditating.

I'm not in love with my painting and it needs more work.





I sold one of my poppy watercolours and daisy acrylics last week, so I've done another poppy painting.

I love them. They are all for sale.
