My Open Studio (Sydney, Australia) 28th and 29th November

 Hello! I am having an Open Studio weekend as a part of the Mulgoa Art Trail. You are welcome to come and visit! I’d love to catch up.  

I’ll have lots of my art on display, as well as some early works from the 70’s!!
You can visit the other artists in the area, and have coffee at the nearby cafes. 
It’ll be fun! 
Hope you can come!

"Booderee Botanic Garden" is my latest painting for my Youtube Channel

Hi guys, 
Just a quick note to say I've recorded my painting this work, and uploaded it as a 'step-by-step' guide on YouTube. Lots of fun for me, because I get to chat all the way through. Hope over to Youtube and check it out. Cheers.

Ready to record, almost.

I've been reorganising my studio. Bob has had these lights packed away for years. I've set them up, and luckily they are still working. 

BUT, I've misplaced my Rode Go microphone, and I cannot find it for love nor money!
So I'm going through each room in my newly renovated house, and checking pockets etc from clothes that I've worn recently.

It's just a little square box like thing, but I cannot record without it! I'm almost at the stage of buying a new one, but, it's gotta be here somewhere!!!

Just a quick post to show you my new look!
I've had my hair cut short and I'm super happy with it.
Ready for some new videos this week.

Instagram has hidden "likes", but they are visible on my computer. 2020

I'm going to start using this blog for general discussion. If you want to chat, please leave a comment. 
I noticed that Instagram "like" counts are visible on a computer, while on my iPhone they have been hidden. I wonder what they are thinking? If you know the reason for this disparity, please let me know. 

I'm not enjoying Instagram so much since they hide likes: I have always wanted to see how popular some posts are, that is part of the game!

If Youtube were to hide the stats, I think I'd look for another video platform.

Watercolour Lesson #30 something on my Youtube channel.
It's a 30 x 40cm Arches page, using Daniel Smith paints.

The Amsterdam in Wind

Watercolour on paper 12 x 16in

I have made a video of the making of this painting. 
It is in real time, with me talking all the way through! :-/
The Amsterdam is a replica ship currently moored outside the maritime museum in Amsterdam. I've take a photo of it, and then used a Dutch master's seascape for inspiration on the background. A fun painting to do in mid-summer here in Australia!
Check out my video, and if you'd like to see more, please subscribe while you are there!

Another one of my 13 new videos on Youtube. 
I am enjoying doing these paintings and creating demonstrations for newbie artists.
I get great comments, and that makes me feel that they are so worth doing. 
I recommend all artists to do this. Very satisfying.
