Happy New year, I apologise that this post is a little late, it has been such a busy time in our house. First was the delivery and installation of over 50 art works ( of varying sizes) to the Demark (WA) Visitors Centre for an exhibition I called ” Wide Open Roads” – abstract Australian landscapes.
Then came Christmas with family visiting.
Then I was pleasantly surprised to be offered a display space at Peacetree Wines cellar door in my home town. “Bloom” was installed.
I am a little tired and have not had much time for reading lately but will get back to posting again soon.
As most of you would probably already know I have a new passion, well several “passions”, its seems the more you have (like love) the more you can be passionate about. I have my family. I have our rescue dog Maggie, almost a year to her “gottcha day” and I have my art.
My art – when I first started blogging, I met with a local wine maker who shared his “passion“. At the time I appreciated but never understood how that passion felt. Now I do.
If you have a few minutes please check out my brand sparkly new website ( work being uploaded every day – I have about eighty more pieces to upload – PASSION 🙂 ) It might take me a while to upload it all, and everyday I paint more… Follow my journey ( sign up if you like, I promise not to bombard you) or just pop in and check out now and then and of course share with your networks. https://carolseeley.com/

If you have been wondering where i have been of late, we got a new addition to the family and she is taking a bit of settling in but is making lots of progress.
Maggie is a staffy x – crossed with something with long legs🙂 She is submissive and a bit cautious of the world – she is what is becoming known as “a covid puppy” born in a time of lock downs with less opportunity to be socialised. But this little girl has a warm heart and just wants to be part of the family.
She is learning that we are here for her and that together we can learn so much.
Her favourite things are; Me, food and third Garry and the lounge.
Recently we hosted a couple of young travelers in our home for a labour exchange – have you heard of Helpx.net ? A great way to meet new people, learn about other cultures and get some jobs around the home done too. This time around we say thank you Jessie and Scotty (and Adele and Kendal who also stayed briefly with us).
We have Scotty and Jessie to thank for this wonderful drone image of our house and garden.
Scott’s amazing art and photography can be viewed here: http://scottdenholm.com/
