GREAT TO SEE HELEN LOOKING SO WELL :0)
   


A MORNING AT LAKE LONSDALE
I couldn't believe the abundance of birdlife on the lake. i went down with sketchbook and watercolours but didn't get much done before rene rang from osaka.  while i sat and talked i had my camera in one hand and just shot heaps of pics.  there were pelicans and a feeding frenzy of spoonbills, black swans, ducks, dotterils, crows, parrots, it was just so beautiful sitting there











THE WEEK IN REVIEW :0)


LAST WEEK'S PICS of the studio after bruce finished his work, achitraves and skirting boards on. now all I have to do is paint everything, i've just spent $250 on heaps of paint, painting time for this little black duck :0)
i love these big new doors, 5m of glass, lovely new light
