Distant Mesas

Hello all!!   And a happy new year to you all!  I have been up to Cairns to spend time with my eldest son and my two incredible granddaughters!      We did the Waterfall circuit around Cairns, and they were all so beautiful and unique.  Then we were off to Fitzroy Island,  a short ferry trip from Cairns.
We did a little snorkelling and swimming and general island stuff!

I have been working on a large canvas for entry into the Bundaberg Arts Festival.  I will post a picture of it once the exhibition is opened for viewing.

The picture below is my latest work. This painting came together very quickly.  I had no preconceived  ideas  for this canvas, but once some colour was put down, it took on a life of its own.

I like it when that happens.

I also made some changes  to my 'Dusk' painting, and I feel it is better now.

I have paid the Graydon Gallery deposit for an exhibition Sept/Oct this year.  The same artists will be participating.  It should be another exciting event!!  Cx
