Happy New Year
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.
Happy New Year.
If you are holiday in the south west of WA this Christmas pop into the Visitors Centre in Denmark, or check out my art online here: https://carolseeley.com/ Thanks for your support.
Review: Japan- Steve Wide and Michelle Mackintosh
Japan: A curated guide to the best sights, food, culture & art
Steve Wide and Michelle Mackintosh
Pan Macmillan Australia
There is something about Japan that works its way into every fibre of your being. No matter how many times you visit, you’ll always uncover new experiences and life-altering adventures.
Pack your bags and travel with us to a country rich in cultural history and full of fascinating contrasts, from the frantic pace of Tokyo and Osaka, to the wintry soul of Hokkaido in the north and the natural wonders of Kyushu in the south. Navigate the dynamic cities, walk the roads of old Japan in Kyoto, Nara, Kanazawa and Nikko, or go off-grid to smaller, far-flung towns, each with their own unique traditions, crafts, sights, food and art.
Packed with cultural insights and stunning photography, this experiential and eclectic guide takes you on a deeper journey into Japan. Read up on history and local knowledge before you go, learn how to navigate the Shinkansen (bullet train), contemplate modern art and architecture, lose yourself in gardens, shrines and temples, and indulge in the best food tourism of your life. This tightly curated list of must-see places and experiences is for people who want to get an up close and personal look at the real Japan.
When I opened this book and started to examine some of the wonderful images ( presented more like a coffee travel book than a travel book) I felt an immediate urge to travel – something I have not felt at all during these years of COVID 19 uncertainty and restrictions.
This book has it all; glorious scenery, arts, history, food, beer, culture….I want to visit Japan 🙂

My New Passion
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/

Happy New Year
On reflection 2021 has been a time of family, of joy, of creating (art), of love, of new beginnings ( new grandchild arriving April 2022) of rescue dog love (Maggie) of art and more art ( did I mention art?) of reading… so many good books and so many new friends…
Happy New Year and thanks for following this journey with me.
