Dear Yogis,

The first day of ’24 is still and quiet, I wouldn’t mind just a splattering of rain.  I think I do live in “Camelot” but it is missing the rain at night (better than fire insurance).  This year is going to be magnificent, the numbers are all adding up.  I always check the numerology for the year, and I hope you do too – some people watch their numbers in magazines or newspapers, but they are so general to be hardly useful.

I am loving my time off – although I do miss my yoga classes, they will be returning soon.  What have I been doing?  Mainly painting and drawing, yesterday I put another undercoat on my canvases for the next paintings.  Sometimes I put 5 undercoats on the canvas before I am ready to paint.  This now is almost the minimum.

The beautiful painting “We Come From The Stars” has sold, and now  I am working on the portrait of Krishna  (50cms x 60 cms).   I am just loving the image.  As Master Creator of the Universe (of everything – of time), my Krishna has the power and the symbols that imply that power – A diadem and jewels of the planets and stars.

“The man who sees me in everything and everything within me will not be lost to me, nor will I ever be lost to him.

He who is rooted in oneness realizes that I am in every being; wherever he goes, he remains in me.

When he sees all beings as equal in suffering or in joy because they are like himself, that man has grown perfect in yoga.”  The ‘Gita.


THE GALLERY STUDIO – For the first time in many years I am opening a Gallery Studio in my home.  I have been looking for a card stand for the entrance, and on Saturday after days of looking and dithering,  I decided that whatever it took I would get one, no more looking after Saturday.

I looked on-line and they were all too big and too expensive, so I went to local stores and could find nothing, and nothing able to be adapted.  On the way home I decided to drop into the little Wildlife Op Shop, and as I parked, there in front of me was the perfect card stand – they had just put it out.  It even came to bits, fit beautifully in my little car for the ride home and fitted perfectly into the spot I had nominated.  That goodness I waited.  It was a sign don’t you think?


A SPECIAL GALLERY PREVIEW and a 10% discount.   WHEN:  Friday 9th February 2024 At 5.30pm – Champagne and nibbles of course.

Then Saturday and Sunday 2.30 to 5pm.   WHERE:  37 Morris Road, Woodend.  When you come to my place for any reason and especially for the gallery,  please park (up close) on the white gravel or around the corner in Mt.Macedon Road.

You are welcome to come before then of course, but please email me and make an appointment.  I don’t sit in my studio all day, it would drive me nuts – I have lots to do, even on holidays.

I look forward to seeing you.
