After an exhausting but fulfilling couple of weeks teaching and also running workshops for 180 students at the Art Gallery of Ballarat, I took the opportunity to go and spend a few days with my brother, sister-in-law and nieces. Even though it rained on and off for most of the time, I managed to get down to the beach each day. My nieces loved helping me find things to photograph while we explored the rock pools, collected shells and danced when the sun peaked through the clouds.
I got a little obsessed with the tube worms, I love how they make their home on the rocks in massive clumps. The tide was well and truly out, so lots of urchins and star fish were left on the sand and rocks. And, did I mention shells, wow, these beaches were littered with so many tiny shells that crunched under foot.
I haven't had that much time to sit at the bench lately cause of all the teaching, so I am really looking forward to being in the studio next week. I have a few things in the pipeline that I am itching to share, but you will have to be patient, as I am taking my time on them and won't reveal anything until they are all done. So, with that said I will leave you dear reader to enjoy your day or evening (wherever you may be).
