Well christmas is fast approaching and we are taking advantage of all the nice sunshine and late sunsets during daylight savings time.
My brother-in-law Steve has taken to the new class like a duck to water, and we have been down at spark street in beaumaris, climbing through the branches and trees to get our perfect spots to create our masterpieces, with the rest of the class.
THE NEXT TWO NIGHTS ARE TO BE PAINT OUTS AT MORDIALLOC BEACH AND THEN AT BRAESIDE PARK (jUST A STONES THROW AWAY FROM MY HOUSE), SO PRAY FOR THE GOOD WEATHER TO CONTINUE.

Well i have managed to now corrupt my brother-in-law to pick up a brush and he now joins us in paint class on a wednesday night (after a very long hibernation from playing with paint).

In October 2011 we headed back down to shoreham in Victoria for our weekend retreat.
It only seemed like yesterday when we were down there in the cold winter of May.
This time around, we had lovely sunny days to enjoy the walks around the property, to walk to the winery next door and to enjoy the time away from the kids and hubby's.
|Trudi completed this wonder page |
showcasing her camping adventures.
|Jo completed this lovely page|
of her and her son Brad.
|Vicki was the first to have a go|
and she created a wonderful flamenco dancer.
|Sherryn was next to surrender to the brush and |
she was extremely happy with her sunset in aspendale painting.
|Anne completed her masterpiece on last morning |
and had to carry it home wet.

|Kathy and Elwin hard at work.|
|Daryl in the forefront and Sue setting up in the background.|
|Me and my masterpiece. lol|
Many of us set up along the pier to capture the wonderful lighthouse in all its glory.
Here i am with my masterpiece, that aparently i could have sold off to a few gentlemen who i thought were giving me a line. lol
Clive reminded me later that night, that the men HAD NOT been telling ALL the ladies that their paintings were fantastic and that i should have seen the opportunity and pounced and got myself some money. lol
|Still painting as the sun starts to go down.|
We searched high and low for Diver dan, but unfortunately he knew we were coming, so he hi-tailed it out of Barwon Heads, as our reputation had preceeded us. lol
So we set up our easels along the sand in front of the pier or on the other side of the building and painted the actual heads. Many people stopped to chat and check up on our work. Some even painted themselves, and showed us their artwork on their phones.

|My masterpiece. lol|
|Sue and Vicki taking a walk to check up on the others.|

Whilst celebrating my older sister's 50th birthday in tasmania,
i managed to convince them both to spend one leisurely afternoon with my teacher Clive and some of the students from the tuesday night AND wednesday night classes (which will be merged this year into one great big fun class!).
Then as evening settled, a few of us checked out the penguin parade, while others photographed the sunsets and then headed to the local pub for a meal, drinks and a bit of a flutter on the pokies.
