Quiet times at Chez Shed

Not a lot has been happening down here
in the deep south of
Western Australia

We did go out wood collecting
last weekend
should be cozy for the rest of the winter now

and the weekend before that
I was up in Perth
I attended a very interesting
Egg Tempera workshop
with
Glen Stewart

and this I produced
when I got home
I put it out in my studio
yesterday

and after hearing much
kerfuffling out there last night
today I found a few extra marks
teeth marks!!!
courtesy of Ratus ratus
Not the collaboration I had in mind
but still interesting.
Up to Perth again on Sunday
will be there for a whole week this time
Dan is doing a 4 day course and
I shall be amusing myself

Hmm I should put up a photo of what it looks like now, as after this shot was taken I put on a layer of homemade oil paint using walnut oil and yellow ochre, which attracted the ants!!!! So it currently somewhat piebald looking and has been shelved for later. xte
