My husband may be 9000 miles away and I may have a shocking cold and streaming nose and 4 hours of online and on campus teaching tomorrow BUT I’m looked after from afar, with a freezer full of husband’s cooking and I have a show to prepare for and so much fun making plans for big paintings and I can have a rest when I get home tomorrow :) it’s pretty good. Enjoying my strange figures in landscapes :) #familiarmadestrange #uncanny #landscapeandfigure #flowerface #flowerperson #hybridity #outofplace #place #memory #imagination #herritage #displacement #wetlands #homing #gothic #darkswan #australiangothic #painter #detail

Out of place

Beautiful and unusual objects matter. Taking a break from essays to have lunch and fresh coffee in a favourite cup. Very indulged and soaking it up before husband returns to UK this week :/ #simplepleasures #capodimonte #indulgence #markingbreak
Out of placeness. Had a moment today and realised that working with ideas about the perception of place and intervening memory might be more effective with figures in the landscape. #figureinlandscape #landscape #planning #paintings #wetland #childinlandscape #stormlight #art #perthartist #momwhopaints #memoryandlandscape #memory #reverie
Little islands of comfort in another working weekend. So grateful to get to teach in my favourite disciplines. So fortunate in my peers. So looking forward to some studio time and so enjoying the garden and environs with family. #artist #momswhopaint #academicmom #swimeveryday #artistsgarden

Change in the artist’s garden. The studio is now across the water from the house. So looking forward to family and friends visiting and enjoying the pool and garden :) #atlast #pool #propperaussie #splash #artistsgarden
Two and a half years ago, when I bought our little haven, I had a list of things I wanted to do to the place within one or two or five or ten years. Today, thanks to unforeseen changes in the form of my lovely new husband, something from the ten-year list is happening. This space will never look like this again. The diggers are coming within the hour to start excavating for a pool to go in. I will be able to teach the kids to be confident and safe around water, we will face summers with equanimity, even when it hits 40 degrees :) it’s strange to feel nostalgic in the face of change when it is a change which one has sought #pool #diggers #theyarecoming #garden #changes #nostalgia

Today is a day full of marking art essays and I am starting the day off with indulgence, preparatory to labour. Husband got up early and made omelette rolls and coffee so there is Breakfast in bed with sleeping cat and the sound of ravens and magpies in the garden and Elodie Sablier on the stereo :) #breakfast #startingthedayright #workingweekend #wishitwasastudioday  #artist #academic #home #indulgence
