Looks like a need to make a date and book The Yarra Valley Grange for a painting weekend some time soon. It won't be a convention and the weekend will be available for all painters.
You don't need to be a member of any artist group.
Please let me know if you're interested and I'll start making my list.
Thank you Sue from http://sue-niven.blogspot.com/ for my very cute Thumb cushions.
There is a lovely story behind these thumb cushions and a tutorial on how to make them.
I'm off to the Craft and Quilt Fair in Melbourne tomorrow. I hear there is no paint, brushes or anything paint related, however I may find some inspiration or happy faces I know.
I may see you there at the Fair. Have a great weekend, Hugs, Anna
