Welcome to our newest member Fay .We missed Margaux(Nick Feneley) , Jo Männistö and Larissa Muldoon last night.Hope everything is ok.Hopefully we see you all next week .

It's been a while since I blogged.Have been busy doing Nanny day care for my daughter .
Wednesday night was another great night ,we have another new model and she was beautiful,having  done some ballet training ,we will get some interesting poses sorted for Jessica to do.I hear everyone snickering to that , lol I am prone to seeing how far we can stretch our models muscles .Poor Isaac knows this for a fact .
My favourite poses being muscley back poses !With or without sword.

 We are organising a weekend get together in the next two weeks at Paula's, so we can get our drawings finished.It's a great way to work as we all inspire each other and motivate each other.

 A friend of ours ,Arja Valimaki is in a group exhibit @ project  artspace 255 Keira St  Wollongong .Opening night is on the 29th July @ 6 pm so if anyone is interested in going along to the opening let me know .
 Anita Larkin holds feltmaking workshops as well in the Community centre on every second Saturday and s…

Last night was a lovely night again .We had Marg and she did another fabulous job .
It's funny how we get less people on State of origin night .Ha ha  . I know they're not at home watching the footy or maybe they are secretly and not telling us .The game is all rigged anyway ,i seriously don't know why people haven't realised yet that it is all rigged.
We have a date for the portrait workshop .The 20th of August , we will be going to Catherine's house to do it and marg is going to come as well and serve Tea ,Coffee ,Wine Cheese and some oreos and dark chocolate for the vegan in the midst of us.Go the vegans !We're going to be working from photos and working with graphite and seeing how we go during the day and what time we have, we might try another medium as well.The cost will be 50 bucks for non pension and concession and 35 bucks for concession and pension /Student  .Please keep this day free for a fun day of socialising and drawing .
Last night we also talk…

I love our class, it's forming into a great little artist community.The day we spent drawing at shellharbour was fantastic and Nikki has some ideas for our next trip out drawing .We were going to have a new lady drawing with us but she got called into work, she is an old schoolmate of Paula's but I don't think Paula has seen her for years. Any suggestions for next trip let me know .
I am so looking forward to our exhibition!Our works are going to take on a whole new look once they are framed .
Poor Freda! I gotta teach Freda how to draw drapery ... She had a great attempt at it ,but I walked   past at wrong moment and caught a glimpse out of the corner of my eye and looked like a furry animal was attacking the model ..Trouble was at the time I had just taken a bite of my bickie and started laughing .Choking and laughing and trying to explain what I was laughing at .I wasn't actually laughing at the picture  but the fact that I thought it was a furry animal .I couldn&#…
