Woo Hoo, I got into the course!

Well I had the interview & showed my portfolio last Tuesday, & they rang on Friday to say I have a place! I had 19 pieces in my portfolio, including photos of two corsets- I'm glad I decided to put those in as the interviewers seemed really fascinated by them, so that probably helped them remember me.

So now I'll be in Melbourne two nights a week so that I can go to school on Thursdays & Fridays- I can't wait!

Wet Media Experiments

No, I don't mean the drips who call themselves 'journalists' in this country!

Last night I decided to take the plunge & try my hand at watercolours. The magnolia blossom worked out ok, so I did a couple of ink works with a brush as well.

The dead tree looks a bit on the gothy side, but it's not a bad representation of a photo we took in the Grampians just after the last bush fires there. The other one is with apologies to Man Ray- it's vaguely half of one of his photos.
