Published again

Hello, I'd like to Thank everyone for visiting my blogspot and leaving such kind comments.

It seems like ages since I've visited blogland.

I have some exciting news. Today I received my "Fine Art & Decorative Painting magazine" (Volume 16 No. 11) as always I open up to the contents page to see the latest projects and artists and there in print is my name.

OK, another reason why I've been quiet besides some personal family issues. We (my family, friends and I) have been on a short holiday to Tasmania. We visited Hobart, Launceston, Port Arthur, Richmond, Mt Wellington, Salamanca market, Galleries and shopping. Apparently they have just had the worst winter in fifty years. Oh, I can vouch for that! It rained and was freezing most of the time we were there.

This photo was taken from Hobart looking towards Mount Wellington.

One of the highlights for my guys was visiting the Cadbury factory.
Here is a picture of the Cadbury Chocolate shop.

Back into the swing of things today, catching up on washing, bookwork and dreaming about our next holiday.
Take care, Hugs, Anna

Congratulations on the publication, Anna! Your project looks lovely!

A pity the weather wasn't nicer for your trip to Tazzie but I'm sure the Cadbury's chocolate factory made up for it. YUM!

Hi Anna! :-)

I'm sat here with my morning treat of coffee and cadburys chocolate, reading your post! Mmmmm.... chocolate... drool!!!!

Sweetie, your painting is DIVINE! Wow! You are so talented! It would take me a month of Sundays to paint something so grand... not to mention that i'd need a substantial amount more talent to boot!

Glad you had a great holiday! And congrats on being published!

Hugs! Vikki x
