New Year, New Beginnings

I am going to restart this poor sad neglected blog. 
All part of giving myself and my arts practice a kick in the pants
It's not that I haven't been doing anything
Just that I have been playing quietly by myself

I am back in the deep south of Western Australia
And it has taken quiet some time to get things back in order
and get things sorted 

But with a deep breath I think I am ready
to begin sharing again

people have been turning up in my art
and I have signed up for a good many workshops
this year to give myself more skills
and to learn more about areas that interest me

I will be participating in a year long course
called Pull Pen Paint here
This is working with Astrology and Tarot/Oracle Cards
plus writing and imagery

Over here I will be doing Sacred Landscape
with Ivy Newport

and here
I will be doing Soul dwellings 
with Kate Thompson

that would seem to be enough to 
keep me plenty busy
But I will also be mopping up a few unfinished workshops
started last year
Like Down Deep with Fonda Clarke Haight 

This is an image from that workshop
So a radical change of direction
image wise
But still focused on an 
all natural arts practice
and yes I am modifying all the 
lessons to my materials
the above image is mostly milk paints

Hopefully there will
be more posts and
more pictures

x te
P.s. I am also in the process of finding my 
Word for the Year
will let you know when I finalise it
