I can hardly believe Easter has come and gone and we head towards the middle of 2015…the year is flying by! I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful break over Easter.
I am back from my 3 week ‘Serendipity’ exhibition in Mildura and whilst I was there I took a few days out to travel to Adelaide and through the Barossa Valley.
It was wonderful to see the likes of Hans Heysen’s studio and house, and marvel at the beautiful gums he used to paint, many of which are still standing on his property. I loved this day… wandering around the many acres in silent bliss, breathing in the essence of the place he loved and called home.
I must say I have a renewed fondness for our Gum trees. Doesn’t matter if they have died and their bare branches achingly tell the story of life lived, or a flush with new growth with feathered friends happily engaging amongst the foliage…they are all majestic and beautiful!
There was so much to observe in my drive to Mildura, stopping in little towns along the way, enjoying our country and revelling in all the shades of green, grey and brown to be seen in the landscape.
I feel like my feet haven’t quite touched the ground this year and it will only be another 7 weeks before I am off on another adventure to Europe. More on that later. For now I just want to share with you the beauty our country and one of the pics from my exhibition.
Thank you to everyone who came to visit the exhibition at The Art Vault. Your support and kindness is so much valued and appreciated.
