Well here we are two weeks out from our move from Perth Western Australia to Adelaide South Australia... We are all sorted, our house sold yayyyy and we are just awaiting to finalise with a Pick up from the removalists in 2 wks and hand over of the house keys to the new owners and we will hit the road for the drive over. Around the lower WA coastline and around the Great Australian Bight across the Nullabor and into Adelaide. We have driven most of this before and we loved it. Places that you would never get to experience if travelling in a plane. The awsome coastline of the Bight, the whales and their calves in their natural environment is truelly something to be seen. And the drive along the longest and straightest strip of road in Australia where there is nothing but wide open space and the sightings of big Red kangaroos, Emus, wombats and Camels in their own natural environment... It sure is a sight to see... The vastness is sometimes hard to explain, but in a strange way I find it peaceful. The colours are so vibrant and I can totally understand how many artists are inspired by it and use it's colours and textures and forms within there work... Which leads me to my own work and hoping that all of this does not take to long so that I can have my hands back into my clay and back to creating again which I love so much. It brings so much joy to me and I am missing it very much at the moment as it is all packed away... So I have been looking at my photos of my favourite pieces and thinking about what I will next create, what I can better and new ideas to try when I am all set up again... So below are a few of my favourite pieces I would like to share with you....
