Swan lake (donated to charity function)
In May 2011 we headed off to Shoreham to a Craft Weekend Retreat. Most of the ladies in attendance scrapbooked to their heart's content, and i got to paint all weekend after i purchased a little desk easel, so i wasn't off in the corner all by myself.

During the weekend, I and painted and drafted a few more ballet paintings to keep me busy ( and to replace the one above that was sold recently at the market) and more exciting, i had a few volunteers who posed for portrait practice.

Sandy was one of the first to brave the cold weather in the name of art- as it is winter here in Australia in May.

The rest of the weekend i tried my luck at painting animals- cats and dogs belonging to the other ladies at the craft retreat.
The women were so excited to be gifted the finished products to take home with them.
