Summer Gold will be going to a its new home in the Yarra Valley.
So heartening to know others appreciate my art.

As well as ‘Embracing our Wildflowers’ I have been asked to add a new photographic art piece to the winter exhibition at the Market Building Winter show, Castlemaine, Victoria.
I love this time of year when the wildflowers are gathering strength to show off their beauty.
The Bendigo/Fairy wax is flowering and yet it is the sundews that took my eye on our recent bush walk.
The creeping sundew is an intriguing plant and this patch was lovely in the winter light.
The importance of lighting to get the look you are after.

We had to go to Benalla on Monday so decided to stay over for two nights.
There is quite a bit of art to see there. My favourite place was the Winton Wetlands. Here are some pics.
Parts of the Winton Wetlands reminded Bill and I of our journey at the bottom of Lake Eppalock when it was nearly bone dry.
Here is a link for more information about this wonderful place
A day to hold his best friend’s hand
crawling in the giant hamster wheel,
Never stopping until
Granny wants a picture.
They climb the winding stairs
Screaming they whiz down
Mulga Bill’s slide.
Mum, Dad and Bubs are busy too,
Cuddles for Grandparents,
Chitchat with friends
Setting out food and drinks…
Time to gather round The candles are alight
Happy Birthday Jamie! Sung with gusto.
With one big breath he blows
Trails of smoke, five in all, float away.
I have been wanting to create a vibrant red design to be printed onto fabric for some time.
As I only use my photographs to create work, I had to wait until I had the right images.
Also, as I use modern technology, I have to grit my teeth when it doesn’t co operate!
At last I have been able to create some designs to use, all featuring Australian flowers.

My father emigrated to Australia in the 1950s as a ten pound pom.
I could never imagine having to leave my home country for a new start in a strange land, albeit able to speak the same language.
I have utmost admiration for those who have to, whatever their reasons. And especially for the women who need to do this, without speaking the native tongue AND facing the physical challenges that men are spared.
This was one reason for me creating the images for my exhibition in 2015, Colour is Life.
It featured local people who had made Bendigo home, coming from many countries. I wanted to highlight their traditions via costume as well as the beauty of each and every person who emigrates.
