Yes! 2014. First day of the New Year, and I have completed my first painting...

Crocoite with dundasite and gibbsite, Adelaide Mine, Dundas, Tasmania. The original will be going with me to Tucson in a few weeks.

Gouache on black card.

One more...calcite and azurite on quartz, Cobar, New South Wales. Gouache on black card.

Today has been a good painting day. The weather has been pretty ordinary - wet and windy - so indoor pursuits were best.

If anyone in Tucson wants to see some of my artwork "in the flesh" so to speak, I will be there from the 4th to the 16th, and will have a number of pieces with me. I am booked into the Hotel Tucson City Center - aka the Inn Suites - and I think suite number 721. If you can't find me, check with Adam Wright (Adelaide Mining Co), Jordi (you know where he is!), John Cornish, or Dehne McLaughlin. One of them will see me from time to time! Or else leave a message with reception.

Looking forward to catching up with old friends, and making some new!
