2010 has been a very eventful year.Travelling around Australia in a caravan, finding a new home in a new town, settling down again, and my eldest starting big school.

I am looking forward to a busy and creative 2011 starting with the opening of
completing the Ochre Diary series
spending some quality time in the studio
inviting friends up to our rainforest retreat to stay in the studio
opening the studio to the public 2 times a week

You accomplished quite a lot this year. I enjoyed following you on your trek around Australia and I look forward to seeing what you come up with in the new year.

Loved the photo and all the elements, too.

Happy New Year!
