Trace looks like you are having a great time.
Can you tell me if the Julia in the photograph is Julia Sutton...if so, please say hi to her from Vicki in Iceland.

Jennifer said...

Cheers! Looks like you're having a wonderful time. And your view from the studio...bit dangerous that. I'd be spending my time staring at the water, I'm afraid.

Trace Willans said...

Thanks Jennifer, fortunately I can enjoy the view while eating and I work with my back to it which helps a little.
Vicki, It is indeed Julia Sutton and I have conveyed your hello's to her.

Velma Bolyard said...

Jo Murray said...

Looks like a wonderful place Trace. The work you are doing is fabulous. Bet, you are happy to sell some too....congratulations.

Judy Wise said...

Wonderful seeing the progression of your painting. Every stage is gorgeous. And those dresses ... it looks like such a wonderful time. The work is just pulsing with joy.

Hello Trace. Am drooling over this post - in particular Kundilini Rising. Just glorious. (Thank you too for the tip about natural indigo blue too.)

Trace Willans said...

Thank you all who noticed our frocks. It made it very easy to identify the artists at the opening. Thank you Susan and you are welcome, email me if you want any more details. x te

Wonderful, you've been very busy (I don't have any good excuses for a 'no post January')! I love the 'seeds', and that view is pretty amazing, though I'm with Jennifer, I'd probably end up just staring at it all day and not doing any work at all if that was my view!

What a fabulous time - I loved the opening outfits and the bubbles...hope it continues to go well. F
