Why so quiet?

I know there hasn't been much action around here the last few weeks, I've been kicking back with the family enjoying some holiday time.  

First we had a lovely Christmas then spent a few days down at the beach with my parents

We spent a quiet New Years at home and most of this week lounging around avoiding the heat. Next week we are off on holiday again to NSW which will be lovely.  

All this relaxing and lazing around has meant that I have been very unproductive when it comes to painting. The downside of having a studio away from home is that during the school holidays it's a challenge to go there for 5min let alone 5 hours.  

I have however found a way to release some creative energy as well as use up some of my yarn stash.  

 

Weaving!

So much fun! It's like painting with yarn!  

Anyway, until I get the chance to pick up my brushes again this is feeding my creative urges quite nicely. Once I do get back in the studio I have lots to work on. I have some commissions I need to finish (and start) I have a new series to work on ready for a show in March. I have a workshop in Geelong in that has sold out and I need to prepare for and all this is just in the first three months of the year.  

so if you don't mind, I'm going to enjoy this time off for at least another week and a half before I get stuck into 2017.
