On the road again

May 16th, 2008 | Category: Carol's paintings, On the road, Workshops

Hello all! I am sorry I haven’t updated for a while but I have been very busy painting camels and I haven’t had much time for anything else.

I thought I should let you know that I will be away teaching in Victoria for 12 days. I leave on Wednesday June 4 and return Monday June 16 2008. Originally, I was travelling to Victoria for the Avoca Camel Cup because that is where my camel exhibition was to be held. However, I received a phone call on Saturday saying that the Camel Cup had been cancelled. I was very disappointed at first, of course - disappointed for myself but very disappointed for the people that were involved in the organisation of it all as I know how much work has been put in to it. But I have always been a believer in one door closing and another one opening and by the looks of things that is what has happened.

I won’t say much more about it at until things are definite but, as they say: “watch this space”. In the meantime, I will be displaying a few of the camel paintings here so you can see some of my hard work. They are for sale if anybody is interested.

And here are the dates and locations of my workshops:

  • Saturday: 7/6/2008 “THE SHEEP STATION HOMESTEAD” ROUGHING I will also be teaching, “NOVEMBER LILLIES” with watercolours in the same workshop
    Where? Wardlin Craft and Garden, 344 Kayleys Lane Brewster

I’m back

November 08th, 2007 | Category: On the road, Watercolours, Workshops

I have just returned from a very successful painting tour of Victoria. I taught in Bendigo, Brewster, Geelong, Melbourne and Rosewood. It was the perfect time to go as all the spring and summer flowers are in full bloom - whatever did we do before digital cameras? I have posted some pictures on Flickr but I have also pasted them in here so you can find them easily.

Daisies make me smile

October 16th, 2007 | Category: Family, On the road, Watercolours, Workshops

On October the 23rd I’ll be leaving at 4am on my little jaunt to Victoria. However my daughter Georgina and son-in-law Micheal will be on their way back from fishing in the beautiful Tumbarumba area so hopefully we can meet up for coffee around 11am.

I am going down to Brewster, which is between Ballarat and Beauford on the way to Adelaide. It’s 20 minutes out of Ballarat and I’m going for some R&R with my friends Ted and Colin. I will be painting a new painting for beginners whilst I’m there, called Daisies Make Me Smile.  That’s on Saturday. On Sunday, I’m doing the Hunter Valley Shed with students who have painted with me before. I’m having a well-earned rest on Monday, but on Tuesday I’ll be painting Pink and Grey Galahs in Geelong with Leony Hoekstra at Friendly Folk.

And then, in Woodbe Crafty, on Friday November 2nd, I’ll be doing Daisies Make Me Smile again. Then I’m back home, stopping in with Jenny Mursett at Rosewood. We are doing the third of a series of Tuscan painting called the Fruit Shop. Then it’s back home again on November 5.
