The thing that has struck me the most about my return is the intensity of light. Travelers the world over talk about how bright the colors are in Australia, how brilliant the blue sky, how deep the greens. It's true! I'm not sure why, perhaps it's because the hole in the ozone layer sits here, but the colors are stunning. My artists' eye is in overdrive. Everywhere I turn there is some brilliant scene full of color that just begs to be captured in my sketchbook.
Last week as we drank our coffee, I noticed that the table we sat at was under a beautiful tree. I have no idea what it was called but it was filled with pink berries and beautiful green leaves. I don't recall having ever seen it before, but my mother assures me we had plenty of it in our garden growing up. I don't remember but this tree was huge, and beautiful, with little pink diamonds dripping down the branches.
Thanks for checking in. xx
