News from the Shed

Completed a little acrylic on canvas painting last night. I like to work at night...less distractions. I'll post a pic today. Off to an Exhibition this morning in our local Community Hall! And then coffee and a yummy cake at our award winning Bindoon Bake Haus......A nice way to spend Sunday especially if the weather is lousy!
