Pastels Tuesdays

I am really enjoying working with pastels at Curdnatta Gallery each Tuesday.
This is a 3 to 4 hour session and I generally limit myself to one finished piece each week. This prevents me from "over working" the piece.
The A2 size allows some flowing body movement so I get a bit of a work out as well ;-)).
I love interpreting my photographs, looking for the patterns and designs where I can use sweeping lines of colour.

Port Lincoln "Uke Muster"

John was a very happy camper when he attended the "Uke Muster" over the weekend. Ukulele lovers from around the region were treated to a weekend of workshops, tutorials impromptu jam sessions and a concert on Saturday night. Members of the Adelaide Ukulele Appreciation Society traveled to Port Lincoln and Tumby Bay for the event which was sponsored by Country Arts South Australia. So many new techniques for me to listen to over the coming weeks ;-))
I managed to make the most of the event by taking a few photos and exploring the beaches around Tumby Bay.

Post Cards and Guide are now available

In addition to the recently completed visitor guides my photos have been published in the new Tourist guide and the first round of post cards and gift cards for the Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden. Apparently the cards are quite a hit already which I am delighted about. There will be further photographic opportunities in this area.

It has been an interesting week with the new visitor information signs unveiled, the release of the new tourism guide and the Arid Lands postcards and gift card range becoming available.
All of these showcase my photographs and to see them looking so good in a range of printed products has been very exciting.

Suits and Utes

I used to do a lot of this kind of work in my role as Curriculum Adviser for the Department of Education and Children's Services but this is the first time I have been commissioned to provide both image and article for publicity purposes... a new phase emerging .
