I spent a wonderful few days last week with colleagues, working outdoors at Coolum. I find it so refreshing to spend time working like this, listening to the crash of the tide, bird calls, feeling the breeze on my face, the salty smell. These experiences engage all of my senses and ground me in the moment. All of this transfers to the papers I am working on and embed memories of place and sensation in completed artworks.
Special thanks to Helena and Donna.
