Bunyeroo Valley

My work as artist in residence at Wilpena Pound wasn’t all work and no play. My son and his partner came for a visit and my husband and I took them on our favourite scenic drive.

This photo that I had taken gives you a good view from the Razorback Lookout of the road that we travelled. At each end of this drive there is a gorge. One is Bunyeroo and the other Brachina.

I rarely miss travelling this route when in the Central Flinders.

The Art Gallery - Wilpena Woolshed

I have caught up now with many of my chores that needed doing after arriving home so it is now time to concentrate more on my art. There are three commissions to paint of which will not be shown as works in progress as I would rather not have the pressure of show and tell on the internet while working on them. Two are oils and one is a pastel. I also will be working on other things while waiting for paint to dry and of cause these will be shared with you.

Somewhere in all this I have to do the farm GST bookwork…… grumble grumble………As many know I hate bookwork!!!

Three photos below show the Wilpena Woolshed and my paintings hanging on the wall. The woolshed belongs to National Parks, hence the artist have to make sure that we do not add to the demise of the shed by further damage. The holes in the shed iron are actually sealed with clear filler so that our paintings are safe from the elements. It is truly a wonderful experience working as artist in residence under the roof of this woolshed. The tourists get a real kick out of it as well.

I am home!

Just a very quick note to let you know that I am home. Yes I know I am late but I have a good excuse; the exhibition ran a few extra days longer and over all it was a great success.

May I say the red wine at the end of each day with my fellow artist and their partners and friends that we accumulated along the way is something that I will always value. I can’t wait for next year…wink!

Once I catch my breath there will be photos posted over the next few days.

See you all then.
