My Photobook on South America

I have just finished my photobook on South America where with two Aussie friends, Janice and Val,  I spent three months travelling, partly on our own and partly on a Penn Overland trip by bus.  We also had 10 days on an old boat seeing the Galapagos Islands.  This was in 1973.  I have scanned all my slides and have 635 photos in the book.

We had been teaching in Canada for three years and were finally moving again to see more of the world,  as Australians often did in those days.

Hope you enjoy this book.  It can be purchased on the  Blurb website
by entering my name in the search box.  All my books are available for viewing and purchasing there. 

The book is best viewed here in fullscreen mode which is available with the far right icon below.

Recent pastel paintings

These are two soft pastel paintings I have done recently on Wednesdays when I meet with others to paint.  I am enjoying returning to pastels, my favourite medium.

I photographed this still life set up under the trees at Floriade many years ago and decided to paint my interpretation of it with bright colours which I love.

This grevillea flower closeup was waiting to be painted.
