Day 9 - Seaweedy Beach

                                                 Acrylic on board 15cm x 12cm (4.5" x 6")

I had an early start today as I had to drop my daughter at school by 7.30am. So in contrast to yesterday's late painting finish (early evening) I finished this one by 9.34am. I feel that I have the day ahead of me now to do some writing. First though, a short walk in some local bushland to admire the spring flowers which are out in their full glory right now. I will take my camera of course and I may just spot something for tomorrow's painting reference.

Because we are about 12 hours ahead of the US, I suspect that this post will show up as still being the 8th Sep, so I have taken a photo of the time and date on my computer to show that this is day 9 for me here on the west coast of Australia.

  4. Thanks so much Celia! The days are passing at a cracking pace I must say and it really takes out the day even if the painting itself only takes a couple of hours. But I'm really loving it. I hope you are enjoying your week!
