So slowly slowly...I have 6 works in progress. I can't finish 1 at a time. They all get done though- eventually and anyway I find it difficult to paint over something I started as if not giving it a chance at who it is.

I feel more and more when I'm working on something that it arrives from somewhere, taking on it's own shape and personality and that it has some sort of destination - somebody waiting for it at the other end that it belongs with. I talk to them - the figures and animals that I paint - and I listen out for anything I should include in the painting. I feel the loop forming between myself the painting and something/someone else invisible.

So many ideas = so many works in progress.
Working on many things at once...as per the norm.

One of a few different paintings I will be putting in for the Christmas
Group show at The Artist's Gallery in Katoomba. It begins 2nd December and runs through to the 8th January. There will be many varied artists with a good price range - so shouldn't be hard to find the perfect pressie!

Painting in and outside these days with a few visitors from the bush - the various parrots, lorikeets and cockatoos - plus my babies - 'the boys' - and a couple of lizards or two (big ones).

So this weekend began by picking up the pieces of a Fairy Tale mandala I started months ago and want to get finished titled 'Wild Swans'. I also started working on two other canvases as well.
