17 October to 23 October I had a wonderful week in the Richard Randall Studio as part of the residency. I invited others to share the space with me to offer some wonderful classes for the public . Thank you Jane ( homeopath) , Jane (writer) , Matt (poet), Jude ( Qi Gong) and Manish (Mindfullness). The theme was healing and art in nature.

As part of the botanic garden residency I am able to work in both the city botanic gardens and the Mt Coot-tha botanic gardens. A visit last week to the mangrove swamp situated at the edge of the city botanical gardens cradling the Brisbane river was fascinating and inspirational. Painting and drawing mangroves at low tide has kept me busy. I look forward to a high tide visit soon.
