Had a wonderful weekend in the Adelaide Hills! 
A friend and acquaintance of the wine makers at the Three Buckets Winery had asked if I would like to exhibit some of my work  during the "Crush Festival". This was the first time that Blefari & Sons had participated in the event and they were looking for an artist to join in. There were many such collaborations in the event. 
As I had spent some years living in the Adelaide Hills I thought it would be wonderful to revisit and take the opportunity to share my work with a new audience.
As it turned out it became a mini reunion with family and friends in a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Sales were good and so was the wine.

Fire at Sunrise

The smoke from the fire near Wilmington added an eerie atmosphere to the sunrise this morning.
We woke up to the smell of smoke and a rising wind, the firefighters will be in for a difficult day.
So far 5,000 hectares of grassland has burnt in the hills and gullies near Horrock's Pass which has been closed to traffic.

Last hugs...

The two little cousins Polly and Claire have spent a lot of time together getting to know one another but the time has come for Polly to go back to Melbourne.
It has been interesting seeing so much of both Claire and Polly and watching them develop an awareness of each other.
Plans have been made to meet up as a whole family again at Easter so we all have something to look forward to
