After our lovely break in the Yarra Valley we have been touring around Victoria and made a quick visit back to New South Wales,Turlee, (which I forgot?) where we stayed on a station for 3 nights, and visited Mungo National Park. I am posting this from the Flinders Ranges in South Australia. So you might appreciate my blury head space. Turlee is where I started on some new work about weather for a group exhibition I am participating in next year. Turlee, treated us to amazing sunrises and sunsets which has inspired this new work. I am very excited about the show and I am also making a video work to present. Below are some images I took whilst on my stay.

Willandra Lake, Mungo National Park. This took me back to the Serengeti in Africa I was imagining giraffes, elephant and wild animals herding and grazing.

I remember fondly as a child playing in my Nanna and Poppy's shearing shed. It
was such a place of fantasy for a Young girl. I used to fly over to WA in the school holidays. My Nanna and Poppy who have both now passed owned a very large sheep and wheat property near the Stirling ranges in Western Australia. Talk about hard work as a women back then. They were the pioneers.
