  1. HI nat Quite so I once spent a whole day soft pastel BIG drawing a glorious bloodwood in the itchy scrtachy hot bush…to find it was a disaster,too unwieldy too big, no centre no path for the eye, but brought it to life by impulsively chopping it in half…the top and bottom were a matching pair and worked much better. Or turning things upsidedown. Or scribbling over the top. Takes courage but usually worth it. Are u going to make it to the art sale? you are welcome to join us, in the driveway at my house 24th MArch,Sunday 10-2. Yet to confirm it until I hear from a few key artists- Kate, Ingrid, Aly and JAimie, Kate Bussey, Patsy Creswick ax
