retreating.

i am currently sitting at a solid claw-foot (not only reserved for baths) table in a rustic old formal dining room, in a hundred year old home on the top of a mountain escarpment. the leaves just outside the window, and further beyond, remind me of how beautifully Autumn happens here and beckons me outdoors.

for the next four days i will be drawing, talking, drinking tea (i’ve already asked someone to keep count for me), wondering, designing, lazing, walking, eating, planning, drinking and then probably sleeping. i’m attending the 3rd annual Sydney Artists Retreat. it is such a highlight of my year and one that i’m particularly excited about in my new ‘regime’ of life. i’m looking forward to being inspired by the 20 or so other artists here and excited about planning what is ahead for me at woodGLASS.

let the retreating begin!
