Arid Lands Australia: Queensland exhibition

July 07th, 2008 | Category: Carol's paintings, On the road, Workshops

I have been asked to exhibit my camel paintings in Hughenden, Queensland at the Arid Lands Australia Festival  on August 22nd, 23rd, and the 24th, 2008. Because of this I am going to be running a series of workshops in Queensland. At this moment I am unsure of the dates but they will be the end of August and in to September. I will let everyone know as soon as they’re finalised.

I will go from Hughenden to Innisfail where I will teach “THE DOLPHINS” and “THE GOLDFISH”. From there I will go to the Atherton Tablelands, then back to Innisfail again to teach “THE DAYS AWAKENING” and “THE CHOOK YARD”.

Then I’m off to Townsville although I am not sure how long I will be there yet. Brisbane will be my next destination, where I am lucky enough to have my dear friends Margaret and Charles. Margaret also is a wonderful painter so I am looking forward to seeing what she has done through the year. Margaret and I are like little girls when we get together with our show and tell - one thing is for sure we can always have a good laugh together, think about how many of your friends you can do that with.

I am so looking forward to the trip, as I will be seeing parts of Queensland I have never seen before, I will also get to see the camels I have been painting and visit the friends that I have been lucky enough to make through painting.

My trip went well

June 27th, 2008 | Category: On the road, Workshops

Always when I return from a trip, I kick myself for not having taken more photos of my workshops. The problem is of course is that I am usually so busy during the workshop that I forget to take them until it is all over and by that stage, of course, everyone is rushing to get away and the opportunity has passed. I did take photos of the workshop I did in Rosewood, however, which I have posted here.

Rosewood - how I love it! You can smell the clean air, smell the eucalyptus and it is one of the few places where I love to rise early so that I can see the mist lift from the Snowy Mountains that surround it. When the mist lifts you can see the snow on top of the mountains. Love it, love it, love it! Rosewood is a stopover on the road to Tumbarumba and it is worth the stop - if you are in the area you should go and have a look. You can even have a good cup of coffee at GONE BARNY which is run by Jenny and her wonderful family. They have built a barn and have made it into a coffee shop filled with beautiful gifts. I love the smell of the place; it smells not only of good coffee but of the Eucalyptus oil that they distil themselves.

I would like to thank Jenny Mursett, who is the teacher and the organiser of my Rosewood workshops as she does an incredible job. Most of the students come from the surrounding districts such as Wagga Wagga, Batlow and Tumbarumba and over the years we have all become friends and I look forward to catching up with everyone. I have found that country people seem to have time for each other. I like this way of life and I just wish that city people could stop and draw breath a little more. I guess I notice the hustle and bustle of the city and its people more because I travel to the country so often.

I have more to tell you but I thought I would write more tomorrow.

Leaving for Victoria

June 02nd, 2008 | Category: On the road, Workshops

Just to let you know I will not be around for 12 days as I am leaving for Victoria to conduct some workshops.

I leave on Wednesday morning at 4am. I like to leave early so that I miss the early morning peak hour traffic through Sydney. It will take me about 12 hours to get to where I am staying, just outside of Ballarat. I will stop to have morning tea at the bakers in Holebrook where I meet Jenny who owns the studio in Rosewood, she will take the frames and paints etc. that are required for her workshop on my return journey home. It  means I will not have to take them with me and then bring them back again.

The bakers make good coffee so it’s a good excuse to stop. It is a long drive but I love it. I love being on my own driving through this beautiful country of ours, I just have to be very careful that I don’t pick up another speeding ticket, not that I speed as I have speed control on my car but I somehow have lost points in the last four years and they mount up. Anyway I am prattling on now,  I will take some photos of my workshops to share with you, there are some very talented painters out there. Till then Bye for now.

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
    Phone 0353440641
  • Tuesday 10/6/2008 “CHOOKS ON THE RUN” watercolours
    Where: Leony Hoekstra Phone: 0352419866 22 Waurnvale Drive Belmont Geelong
  • Saturday 14/6/2008 “CHOOKS ON THE RUN” watercolours
    Where:Gone Barney, Rosewood, on the way to Tumbarumba.
