Sitting on the plane waiting to take off for my Australian adventure ... I'm so excited for my 2 weeks Down Under! I'll be participating in the Barossa Art Residency in beautiful Kapunda. The amazingly talented Jacqueline Coates will be my mentor (and new friend). I can't wait to paint along side Jacqueline and the other students in the program. I'm particularly excited to paint with oils and use a palette knife - both new to me. So thankful to my wonderful husband and family for encouraging me to make this trip. Time to turn off the phone ... here I go!!
