There were cries of despair as rain fell on the Bogong High Plains and created 'cauliflowers' in people's perfect paint washes. I decided to embrace the cauliflower and use it in this painting of heathland flowers. We were actually just over the road from some rangers spraying weeds, but painting can edit these things out.

Would I go on another plein air painting trip? You bet. Sign me up. With good company, someone to handle the boring logistics of travel, and the chance to be immersed in landscape, shape and colour ... I think I might be hooked. But meanwhile, this Friday is Eucalyptus Day and there are art activities afoot - about which, more later.
