Well its over a week since I flew out of Brisbane to the other side of the country beautiful Western Australia. The Port Headland pastellists invited me to come teach a workshop for a weekend and of course I said yes. How good is that to be asked to come across to the other side of our country to teach.
Of course when I get to talk to the organisers it is revealed they had been following me on my web and facebook site after getting the rave from the girls in Perth. Thank you Perth Girls. It is a lovely feeling to know that people like what you do and will follow you up.
So Alphonse the Artist Bear and I went to Port Hedland for the weekend where we had a ball. There was an earth quake too just too ad to the big event.
This is the Port Hedland Arts Council Studio where the workshop was held. Alphonse is posing on the easel out front. The roller doors you see here were rattling and shaking when the earthquake came.
It is a very well used venue, and loved by all. It is wonderful to see dedicated buildings by council for the arts community.
The pastel group is active and enthusiastic with one lady driving 100km each way each day to attend. Each person got right in to the challenges set and with amazing results. Some surprised themselves too.
Thank you Port Hedland for the opportunity to be part of your pastel heritage.
