Sea mail

Sure, it's slower sending stuff by sea, but so exciting actually posting the letter.

You got mail II

So who owns the letter box at the head of the beach path at Newport? Is it the person on the beach? What does the letter contain? One thing is for sure, it's not an electricity bill!

Oddly enough the Australia Post letter box does not look completely out of place in the shallows of Sunshine Beach.

Encounter Bay sentinel

Victor Harbor is known for its many pine trees that line the shores. This particular one is a lone pine that stands halfway along Franklin Parade on Encounter Bay. Not only does it stand guard like a sentinal but it also marks the spot where the deli is and a few eating places where you can buy a coffee and a piece of cake that will send you home poor!
It was an unusual day with grey skies and rain - then the sun came out. It made for an interesting painting.

Yachts in the rain

I think this painting only partially captured this amazing sight I caught last weekend at Victor Harbor. The rain was sweeping in and I was busy taking photos around Victor. I turned a corner and looked out to sea and saw misty rain envelop a number of coloured yachts just off shore. The water was strangely still and the yachts were bobbing around not really going anywhere. It was very surreal.

Semaphore sunset

I'm just not a sunset artist. Perhaps it's because I use acrylics and the colours are certainly not as vibrant as oils are in such works. However, I had to paint this one. The sun was well down past the horizon and the oranges were subdued. It was such a peaceful end to the day at Semaphore beach. The painting was first to sell in an exhibition last year because it had a dog in it!
