Dear Yogis,

Not so cold this morning? No snow?  August is usually the month for snow, but it has seemed cold and damp enough.

THE WOODEND WINTER ARTS FESTIVAL is on this weekend.  I will be at The Mt.Macedon Gallery on Saturday morning from 10am to 1pm if you can wander up the mount to meet me.  I have a few examples of my encaustic work when i should be home doing more.  You can of course ask for a portrait to be made – no need to sit, just send me a number of good photographs via email and I will go from there.   You might have the need for a portrait of a loved pet (I am finishing one of my cat Gracie) , a husband, wife, daughter.  Because they don’t need to sit, it could be of a person who has passed.

The portrait in the photo to the left is of course of myself….On a background of tea bags and a mosaic of an angel print (size 40cm x 40cms) . The portrait on the right is The Girl With The Pearl Earring by Vermeer.  It is a favourite portrait, so I copied it for myself using my favourite photo transfer and encaustic technique.  But it could be you or a loved on in the picture.  This portrait is on a 8inch x 8inch canvas panel with wax protective coating…  Painted and posted to you the cost will be $175 for one, or $320 for two.

YOGA.  There is lots happening on the yoga front (apart from me getting dates mixed between June and July – where did the time go!!!) Just have a look at the dates and times below.  There is something for everyone.

GIFT OF WOOD.  One of our Studio Clients has donated a trailer load of fire wood to The Anglican Church to be raffled to bolster the fund used to fund me in my teaching of yoga to Windarring.  I will let you know when the raffle starts.  You will be able to buy tickets from the Church stall outside the Woodend Newsagency.  You have got to be in it to win it.


YOGA CLASSES AND STUDIO TIMES….. We will be closing for a week during the school holidays.

ZOOM CLASS :   It is Monday and you will have questions relative to this STRUCTURAL YOGA THERAPY module which is one of the largest in the course.  It could take you a month to finish this one module.  Please send me a number of questions you want answered about this module.  5 questions will I think,  be enough from each of you.  Those I don’t have time to answer at zoom, I will email.  We started last week and are half way through the module – it was very interesting to revisit this very important part of the course.
