A lot of these pieces were done in Canada. Many were done from Hotel rooms and really I used early mornings or times when we had a bit of free time. I found I was trying to do a big painting every day but I failed  at that. Still I did get a number of pieces done in our time away and I was very happy with the learning and challlenges I had from this.Not all of them are good but they all gave me a challenge and taught me something.

There are a few others here I have done mainly since we have returned. I go to art group every wednesday ( usually with Helen Timbury and Laurel Billington and sometimes others).I also do a Thursday art group at Yarragon with Jo Draisma, Ingrid Thomas, and quite a few others. I feel this is my chance to do some 2;D work as I do get drawn to my shed if I am at home.I have tried to base most of my pieces on local scenes but this will change I am sure.
