I am a pastel artist living in country Victoria, Australia. My subjects vary, ranging from landscapes, portraiture, animal studies,...

Way behind with my Journal!!!!!

Phew! I am sitting here in my VERY HOT loft space trying to catch up on my “bubbling”!!! I am so far behind with my journal and I think a couple of weeks have just disappeared into a ‘black hole’ somewhere!!!!

Since I last did a journal I have been to a REDBUBBLE WEDDING (Simone Aberle and Claire O’Brien) on Aldinga Beach near Adelaide, I SOLD A CALENDAR, I’ve done pretty well in some CHALLENGES, I’ve become a FEATURED ARTIST and my Personal Assistant MERVYN THE COCKATOO HAS LAID AN EGG!!!! Yes – Merv has tricked me for all these years! HE is a SHE! I will have to rename her! (I am currently considering ‘Muriel’ but would welcome any further suggestions)!!!!

I was very privileged to attend Simon and Claire’s very romantic wedding! (I tried to upload a photo but Redbubble is not being co-operative this evening so I have given up)! It was great to meet the Happy Couple who I felt I knew so well already due to all the correspondence to-ing and fro-ing between us since they were all lovelorn on either side of the planet and I was adopted as their ‘Fairy Godmother’ offering words of solace!!!! I also met Simon’s dad Ross (who is also a Redbubbler) and his lovely wife Michelle. We had the BEST time!!! Congratulations and many thanks to the happy couple and their families.

THANKYOU WHO EVER YOU ARE? The lovely, generous, mystery person who bought one of my Calendars!!!!
