Then out with friends at the Vessel winner announcement at Maleny Artworks ... Fiona, Barry, Caroline, Mieke, Ken & Mark.

A picnic was had on the lawn outside my residence ... with friends Janna, Kerry and Kirsten.

I received beautiful Australian flowers for my birthday from friends and had a wonderful day. Starting with breakfast, work in the gallery all day and the flicks in the evening. Topped off by best wishes from family and friends all over.

When I got home Tuesday, we had a fast and furious wild storm followed by a total blackout. The candles came out so did the torch for a good reading session tucked up in bed. I believe others in Maleny hit the township for refreshments at the local eating establishments ... they must have done a roaring trade, power was out in most surrounding districts until early morning.

Then it was my turn and "oops" look at Lady Hamilton!

And here are great friends and fellow tutors Terry, Linda & Lady Hamilton displaying their certificates of appreciation.

I have been away to teach at the Grafton ArtsFest where I and the participants worked hard and done good! It was a colour, collage and calligraphy workshop.

I have captured myself as part of the artwork ... what a great image!

After numerous disasters, finally I have finished this lovely little piece of work on canvas ... or have I? Notice a mistake :-) ... easily fixed when I get to Grafton.
