For as long as I can remember, I have always loved art... I often get asked 'what inspires me?' When I was growing up...we made our own fun. We didn't go on expensive holidays or theme parks, our holidays were spent camping or we would rent an old 'beach' house and play on the muddy tidal flats, pumping yabbies for fishing. As a family we would go for Sunday drives....we might go for a bush walk, search under logs for 'critters', picnic in the middle of 'no where', or go for a cool swim in a rock pool in the mountains. When I first started painting, I mainly painted the beautiful places that my husband and I tavelled to on our many camping journerys. Now that I have my 2 beautiful girls...I am sharing the beauty of the outdoors with them, and they now feature quite often in my artwork. I have been told by many people, that my artwork brings back childhood memories for them, and I hope that my artwork reminds you of a special memory too.

Pauline Adair Workshop

 Well we had our final class with Pauline...here's a few images from the day.
 Pauline Adair - below & top

 We decided that the arm on my 'nude', just didn't look right, so for now I've blurred it out.
I think she's finished....still not sure about the arm though.  Will leave it for now & think about it.

'Pauline Adair' Workshop - 'My' work in progress

It's been sometime since I've attended a workshop, then I heard that Pauline Adair was conducting a class with the Samford Art Group....so I jumped at the chance!!  I've been a fan of Paulines since I started painting, it was such a thrill for me to meet her in person & watch her paint.
....this was how much I completed from the days class. 
....I then continued with the piece at home.  Still a bit to do, but I'm really pleased how it's progressing.
