Quite the journey, Phoenix to LA to Sydney to Byron Bay to Ballina and my sister Charlie’s tropical garden and the beautiful beaches and surf.


I have just finished a Paint Provence with Tess in Arizona and had a truly splendid time and I am now in Australia for my sister Candy’s marriage to Greg. All very exciting.

I have been here for a few days and am feeling slightly less drained by jet lag. The sound of the ocean waves roaring onto the beach swimming or trying to is a good cure for jet lag and long beach walks in paradise.




I have just started a few little sketches for a painting, I love painting tropical gardens. I hope to have painted a large painting before leaving.
