Hello again everyone! Another month seems to have gone by and as usual it's been a fairly busy one. A trip down to Victoria at Easter enabled me to kickstart a series of landscapes I have been planning for some time, in and around the beautiful South Gippsland countryside. And how lucky was I to score my very own plein air studio in an old equipment shed at the rear of the wonderfully rustic Glentress farm! Several glorious days were spent touring the undulating valleys and rolling hills of this unique area, pausing for roadside sketches and then returning to my fabulous studio for some oil painting.
We stayed at the beautiful property of 'Glentress', located at Kardella, the site of what used to be a village with its own church. Our lovely host Lynda made us comfortable in her characterful home as we spent a wonderful evening chatting all things art and life in general. Happy days! These and other paintings will be featured in my upcoming exhibition in Melbourne in July...
