Life has been great! Shaughan and I have been having heaps of fun and working hard.
I finally finished painting and hanging my collection of art in my toilet. It's pretty mad, I love it!
I thought I had finished my catalogue for the open studios but after walking through my home I found so many more pieces to hang so it's back to getting it sorted, MISSION!
I managed to get all my invites out yesterday for the open studios it is such a great bunch of people in the open studios this year, the town is going to ROCK!
Last Saturday was International Woman's Day so we headed down to Majestic Square to watch Maka play a set, it was great, she rocked the town!
It was a beautiful day I bumped into Wendy who had just won a 100km ride on a flash motorbike, how exciting!
I so nice when Wanganui people get together and enjoy our beautiful town and the wonderful people in it!
Mum's 60th birthday was fantastic! There where lots of lovely people there and it was the perfect day to sit around drinking, eating and enjoying one another's company.
After Mum's we headed over to Jason and Jane's for their birthday party, it was fun catching up with everyone.
We ended up going back to Tim and Vicky's for a coffee and not hitting the hay till around 3am so I was buggered all day Sunday from not enough sleep and maybe too much wine the night before?
This photo is of us at Rere's we helped pop all the maps in the brochures for the open studios. I made scones that morning so we sat around like old lady's drinking tea and eating scones with jam and cream, how divine.
I have a wonderful lady in London who has been promote my work in the UK which is exciting! It really is nice to have someone organise this so I can keep concentrating on my work while my work gets to creep overseas YAYAYAYAY! I do hope to go over to the UK sometime this year! I would so love to go and visit my friends, family and all the wonderful galleries over there! It would be great to find an artist in residence programme to do while I was there. Bring on the money!
My message for the day is: Do not see God as separate from your inner embers. Know that He created and continues to stoke, this original flame.
