Hello, and welcome to my art blog from Tasmania, Australia. I've spent time as a plant geneticist, teacher's assistant, painter, glass artist and book illustrator. I'm usually in the studio, the classroom or the lab. If you'd like to see more, please try the links to my folio page or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
Saturday was a very wet market day, but I still enjoyed it - thank you to my stout-hearted customers. On Sunday while everything was laid out at home drying, we drove north about 70 km into the country to see what we might find. The land is showing its winter bones, but looks spectacular in its subdued bronzes and iron reds. These are a couple of sketches I did of the landscape near Hamilton, where we had lunch at the historic inn. The pub dog begged politely, but he wasn't getting any of our Yorkshire pud with gravy! After lunch we had a walk along the River Clyde and were rewarded by the sight of a platypus, rummaging around mid-stream. Sorry I did not get a good photo of him.
