Today, again, I was not in the studio, but went on a little Sunday drive with hubby to Ballan – a sleepy country town only about twenty five minutes from where I live, but which I never really visit. Its a bit like like that isn’t it… places just around the corner we don’t really know very well.
Being a Sunday most places were closed, but there were a few gift shops and cafes open, and it was a gorgeous 25C, so perfect for a stroll. We parked at one one end and walked the circuit. We checked out the gift/vintage/opp shops that were open, but the one opp shop we did want to check out was closed, though I did manage some pics of their front garden! You can see why I wanted to check out the inside of the shop.
On the way home we bypassed via local artist Robert McLaren’s studio to pick up the marbled paper I created at a WORKSHOP I attended a few weeks ago, and I must say I was happy with the results now that they are dry. I’m not sure what I am going to do with the finished works but I am enthused to explore this method further, including on ceramics!
So whilst not ‘in’ the studio for today’s Sunday studio visit, I was out and about informing my arts practice, so that counts too – right?
Have a great week everyone 🙂
