Haven't we had a wonderful time?

Here is a little photo journal of our exhibition 'in our blood' that closed last Sunday 14th October.


                                                 A welcome of trumpet duets at the door



                                                                 MIKE'S SLIDE NIGHT

                                for more info about Mikes books and treks check out his website

All these lovely photo's are courtesy of brother Chris.
You can find his more serious art photos on his website

(which I am proud to say sports a drawing I did of him with his camera at the ready)

We had two 'Meet the Artists' events 
on the two Saturday afternoons with nibbles and wine, 
laughter and chats but we don't seem to have photos of those days.

There were lots of lovely people and we loved seeing all who managed to get there
so I am sorry I can't post photos of you all.
I think we must have just got overwhelmed and not picked up our cameras.....
Well that is my story but photos may emerge from the others as time goes on.

My boys were working when most of the big events were on
but it was lovely that they got there at other times with their little families.
They are a huge inspiration to me :)
I did manage some pics of them ;) :) :)

                          As you can see I had to buy Luca several times because she is just too cute
                           and little Lillie fell asleep in my arms for the first time...awww lucky me :)

So I guess those of you that didn't make it to the show
particularly the Mud Colony bloggers
 and my interstate/international friends might like to see what work I had there?

Well OK....



                                                 and then we were time?

                                                          2016 ? the earliest!

                                                  Time to think about the whole process.....
                                              Although we had a very successful exhibition
                                          selling way more than many shows I have been to in Sydney
                                               it is still a huge expense and immense work for us.
                                                   At best some of us have broken even
                                   but mostly we run at a loss, when everything is taken into account.

                                                      BUT we did have a wonderful time!

                                  So it is into the garden for me , time to recharge the batteries
                                       Time to smell the flowers and feed the baby chicks :)
