A Visitor



I had a great weekend catching up with Judy and Jen. Judy was in Melbourne to teach a two day workshop, we managed to catch up in the evenings along with Jen and Sarah. I dropped into the class and saw some of the magnificent work the students were producing. I also bought some fabulous brass castings from Judy. On the Friday night Jen, Sarah and I were in brass heaven checking out Judy's things, this girl does nothing by halves.I now have to work them into some of my jewellery.

I've been busy all week working on things I can't show just yet. I'm working in the last of the books for our marathon ABRR, the books have been going around Australia and the US for the past eighteen months. Our babies arrive home at the end of the month, can't wait. I will reveal all then.

Tomorrow I'm off to bead heaven, it's the Melbourne bead show so I expect to have some goodies tomorrow night.

I can't not show some art it wouldn't be right, here's a painting I really enjoyed working on, it's pastel over acrylic on matt board. I was able to be very free using this style.

What a vibrant painting Ro, it's lovely.

Can't wait to see your jewellery creations using your new brass bits. It's always inspiring when you acquire something new and you can't wait to use it.

Great photo of you and Judy.

Hi Ro, great image of you and Judy.
I love your painting/pastel...
Intense colour play, such a confident piece Ro, it looks brilliant...
Looking forward to seeing your book when it gets back too! I am fascinated that it's been travelling for 18 months without you seeing it!!! What an amazing project to be apart of.

Hi Ro...

What a beautiful and strong painting. Love the vibrant colors, and the depth of layers and textures.

You should do a series of these.
