This is the collection I will be taking on holidays with me
i have tried very hard to keep it down to a dull roar
Their is a part of me that wishes to wing it
and just see what I find when I get there
But the bit of me that says I must take stuff
is winning
Besides I wont be taking my computer
so I surely need all of these little treasures
plus what I find over there
See you on the other side

Whats Happening

WIP from Jane Davies class

Not a lot in the studio thats for sure
The course over here with Jane Davies
has finished even though I have not.
Thankfully I can go back and do more when I find the time

Coz I started another online course
(yes i love them)
over at Martha Beck's working through the book
Steering By Starlight
which has only had one class so far but is looking good
Would love to be doing this though

But first I have to read this book
Lucky it is in my bag ready for my trip to
yes it is now so tantalisingly close
We drive up to Perth on Saturday
and fly out sunday morning
We will visit
Nusa Lembongan
The Gili Islands
I plan many spa visits while Dan scuba dives
Any hints tips and suggestions welcome

Oh I am also packing to read
Everyday Sacred by Sue Bender
Convergence with Nature by David E Cooper
Choose-Them-Wisely by Mike Dooley
so that should keep me busy
I was hoping a novel would find its way to me
but nothing has turned up yet
So I may take something I have already read

And my favourite Astrology site

Building Up

Pieces of work are starting
to build up in the studio

There are many
encasutic pieces just hanging around
Most of them are finished
on the front anyway
the oil paint is drying

and the tape needs removing
and the sides finishing
and names may or may not
be thought of
oh and they need signing
and hangy things put on the back.
So not even close really!!!!

But still they are getting there
the big push is for the Perth Art Expo
October 21st
but I have 2 weeks in Bali first
and 2 lots of saturday demos
so the push is on
There always seems to be so much time
that rapidly diminishes
