Happy Times....

Last weekend [I cant believe its been a week already !!!] the mixed media gals hit the beach....

Lynne flew down from Queensland and we hired a car and took off to a friends beautiful beach house which looks out over a lake.... its a bit like a Tardis house, looks really small and unassuming from the outside but is huge, light and airy inside :)



 we shopped in Castlemaine, visited not 1 but 3 art shops and Kaisercraft in Geelong .....
 
 and then we got down to business...eating, painting, drawing and laughing........ lots of laughing :)

we made books, drew faces, painted....





 and painted a collaborative cloth........that was absolutely the best time I have had arting with friends.....so much laughter and paint flying everywhere....

We walked on the beach.......





 








 
admired the beach art....
 
 

and ate in nice coffee places....

as well as  fish and chips on the beach...
 
 
 
 and went for a walk around the lake...

I am envious! The art cloth is absolutely stunning. I hope to find some arty girls to "get painty" with. Until then, I will live vicariously through you dear!
