We held an artist talk on Sunday and then on Tuesday we traveled to Goulburn to give a talk and demo for the printmaking students at TAFE Arts and Media Department. We even got to go to both Suzanne Bellamy and Marianne Courtney's studios. We were wined, dined and given the royal treatment by all we met. What an opportunity to get to know artists and share inspirational ideas and techniques. I hope to get back to Australia to teach a workshop.

We were able to travel a bit in New South Wales. We went from the Snowy Mountains to the tide pools and beaches at Depot Beach and the tree fern grottoes of Penance Grove. You will be seeing work inspired by these places. I will post inspirational photos and finished paintings as they are completed.

I would like to thank everyone in Australia that made our trip such a memorable experience.
