New year, new life

I have just unpacked my last box and its starting to feel like home :) Moving is such a big job and this one was a doozy. I unpacked EVERYTHING – stuff that has been in storage or in a box for so long I didn't know what was in it. Todd and I filled a skip with stuff before we moved too. Boy, was that refreshing! Now I just need to turf a few more clothes.. I do struggle with that one though. 

So here we are on top of the hill in Possum Creek. We have been in NSW almost a month now and have to say it totally feels like home. We LOVE IT!

The shop has been hugely busy with Christmas and holiday makers to the region. Byron Bay is swarming with people, to the point where you'd rather just avoid the place altogether! 

I have managed to paint a few new paintings over the last couple of months, and the studio is working out well despite having to paint in front of customers which I wasn't too sure about.

This one is titled 'Now the fear has gone'. I painted this piece a couple months in to opening the shop. It is symbolic of me letting go of the fear of not being good enough – an incredibly common fear that many of us suffer from in our lives.

This one is 'Moonwalker', a bit of a crazy trip beyond my reality. A complete shift in colour and a return to my yellows of my early painting days... I love this one!
