Returning From Asia

Sanpan and Cormorants 
China 2011

My blog has been quiet for the last three weeks as I have been travelling in Asia. From a fabulous New Years Eve Ball in Hong Kong with  friends from all over the world to a relaxing break in Thailand. Time has flown by.  I have returned to my studio feeling refreshed and raring to go with my brush. 

I have seen so many exciting colour combinations, tricks of light on a large number of new subjects and can't wait for my 2011 Watercolour Workshops to begin next month. In the meantime I have new collections that need completing for a number of galleries and exhibitions. I am hoping to pull the strong influences of my Shanghainese brush work into many.

It has been a lovely time to meet up with old friends,look back on years of special memories together and meet interesting new friends in a variety of locations. Hong Kong always holds a huge place in my heart from having lived there for so long while Thailand is a country full of smiles,beauty and wondrous food. We have visited  this haven on so many occasions and this was yet another trip that will be treasured for years to come.

Now I am faced with  hundreds of emails and messages as I haven't been online since I left home  in December. Please bear with me while I catch up and I will look forward to sharing moments from the last few weeks in days to come.

I wish everyone reading my blog a very Happy New Year and hope this is the year everyones dreams come true. Mine is off to a terrific start!!!!!!!!
