To be honest, I feel like walking over to the shops and buying some chocolate! Hang on just a minute…ok, I’m back, and with a nice cup of chai. Now, this post is long overdue…

A few things are happening. I’ve been doing some research interviewing people about the challenges of creative professionals and I’ve learned a lot so far.

I’ve started a ‘Creatives Share’ group for people to meet at my studio each month. There’s a Facebook group to help us stay in touch more easily and for international folk to join in and enjoy. Let me know if you’d like to be part of it.

Already Nancy Sever of Nancy Sever Gallery here in Canberra has kindly agreed to speak to us this coming Saturday afternoon about the show of Milingimbi paintings she has up currently. The striking works are all made with natural ochre pigments. This will be our first treat as a group and I envisage many more!

This coming Sunday I will speak at M 16 Artspace here in Canberra at 1.30pm. A couple of my small works from the ‘Flame’ series are hanging in a group show. Most of you probably have downloaded the book that shows images of these paintings, and CLICK HERE if you would like to get it again. I will speak briefly about my journey to Italy and Germany earlier this year.

I’ve started to plan for the Florence Retreat in 2017. The dates will be Friday 25th March to Saturday 9th April. I’ll be taking 4 people for this very special experience. If you would like more information contact me HERE. There will be a ‘Florence with Suzanne’ blog coming soon where I’ll share more of what happened this year.
