It’s no secret I love Sculpture by the Sea at Bondi and have blogged about it each year. Recently it went on tour to Arhus in Denmark and when I saw this image Bubble No 5 , earlier in the week it reminded me of big red things and blue, blue skies.

It’s winter here in Sydney Australia and after a bout of rain clear crisp skies have emerged.

Chen Wenlings larger than life figures are always popular with children and can’t help make you smile.  The work here Childhood Morning was stolen (and later recovered) from Cottosloe Beach in Western Australia.

These images have inspired me to take a large calligraphy brush, dip it in brilliant red gouache and write their story.

    • Hi David, work and study has kept me just too busy lately. I wish it was painting. I love blogging – Sculpture by the Sea 2013 is only a couple of weeks away and I have a break while it’s on -so fingers crossed I’ll be back in the saddle soon. Congrats on the book, wonderful news. Cheers Sue
