It won't be long now and we will be moving to Belmont, a suburb close to the city of Perth.

We sold our business and retiring, traveling, painting, drawing etc etc, well I will be anyway!

This is a W.I.P. for my Mum for Christmas. She loves Charles Bronson.......…

Missing in Action

Well, so much happening in my life at the moment, some good, some not so good, but on the good side, just spent 6 weeks in Asia and China. What an experience. The Great Wall and The Terracotta Warriors to mention a couple of outstanding visits. I took 4500 plus photo's with some wonderful ideas for drawing and painting. As soon as I get my butt into gear I'll be posting. Till then, see you soon and have a good one!

Yours in Art

Bed of Roses

This is 40cm x 30 cm Faber Castell on white card. I spent around 3 hours a day for maybe a week to finish this. I haven't done a lot of colour pencil, but am very proud of this one.

I live in Perth, Western Australia, and I think it is one of the most isolated cities in the world. Most art exhibitions, lessons, classes etc are not many and most of what I learn from is online. Thank goodness for computers and the www.

I have joined quite a few different sites and this is one of the better organised. I have only been here since February, but enjoying it very much. It is very informative and helpful and the members have been very pleasant.
