I am looking forward to a chance to start doing art again. Life got in the way, and the last time I did any art was nearly 20 years ago.

My inspiration is the numerous very talented artists that picked up a brush later in their life. Such as Animal art by LAW doing incredible work with colour pencils. A lovely article here discuss some of these dynamic people..those that picked up a brush after 60 and are now making waves in the art world !….. I still have time 🙂

This time around I would like to explore watercolour. Watercolour can display lumenescent light like no other medium. Marney Ward is a master of creating light. I would love to try her flowers and light, maybe even do a series on Australian flowers.

Another inspiration is HUGE acrylic works such as the Australian gums of Simon Barlow  !! I would very much like to work on such a large scale and I really like the Australian gums.
