It's a while since I posted something from outside the studio, but this is a fitting image for the end of a long day. No more countdown necessary for the Pozible project as the target had been hit- about 3 hours ago. (But it's still open until midnight AEST. If you want to see what it was All about the link is in my bio.) I am full of gratitude and I'm exhausted. Sweet dreams everyone 😴
O solitude! if I must with thee dwell,
Let it not be among the jumbled heap
Of murky buildings: climb with me the steep, --
Nature's observatory -- whence the dell,
In flowery slopes, its river's crystal swell,
May seem a span; let me thy vigils keep
'Mongst boughs pavilion'd, where the deer's swift leap
Startles the wild bee from the foxglove bell.
But though I'll gladly trace these scenes with thee,
Yet the sweet converse of an innocent mind,
Whose words are images of thoughts refined,
Is my soul's pleasure; and it sure must be
Almost the highest bliss of human-kind,
When to thy haunts two kindred spirits flee. John Keats
Time for another travel shot from my visit to Auckland. I wandered, following strangers, used no map until I got where I wanted to be - down by the water. Wandered through an outdoor photo exhibition, saw a foot bridge open up to let a boat through, found a spot where people were just lounging around, bought my dinner, found my way back to where I'd started and went to bed.
More gorgeous inspiring organic lines and shapes from the Time for Drawing weekend workshop I did a couple of weeks ago in Wollombi. I love doing workshops - to create in company, to learn or do something new (we're always beginners as my yoga teacher says) - it recharges my creative batteries. It's kind of like a spa retreat for your creativity! Yes, I definitely see it as a form of self care. If you're feeling like you need some self care that taps into your creativity, I'm running two Chance, Intention and Intuition workshops on November 6 @ceresbrunswick. Colour and Composition from 9:30am-2:00pm followed by a self-directed, supported Studio Session from 2:30-4:30pm. Link in bio for more info and bookings. Hope to see you there!
