I've been in my homeland of New Zealand for the past week. Next year, I'm teaching a painting holiday here with my artist friend, Joe Garcia, so my sister (also a painter) Joanne Hanson and I are here making arrangements for next year's fabulous New Zealand Painting Holiday. If you'd like to learn more about this workshop (sorry folks, it's full - but you can be on the waiting list) or you'd like to read about the rough week Joanne and I have had here in New Zealand, then go to our blog, http://www.paintnewzealand.blogspot.com/.
Today, my old-time friend Lindsay Scott and her husband Brian McPhunn, took us out on their boat to Beehive Island for a barbecue. What a life!
