Hi Everyone,

I'm new to this site and thought I would give you a brief profile on myself.  I live on acreage in the Gold Coast Hinterland, Australia and have been painting on and off (mostly off due to working full time) for the last 25 odd years. I have been retired for the last few years, so I now have a lot more time on my hands and want to focus on painting, which to me is a lifetime pursuit.  My first painting lessons were in oils, which I enjoyed very much at the time, and then…

Thanks Colleen...I've been away for a while. Working a full time service company didn't leave much free time at all. My husband and I are moving to another state and it looks like I might have more time to paint, now. Certainly looking forward to it! Hope to talk with you lots more!

Hi Colleen, Yes now I know where Wongawallan is, you live in a lovely part of the hinterland.

I live on the Glen Dora Estate,  McDowall for the last 8 yrs, before that 35 yrs at Everton Park so I am definitely a North-sider....born in Ipswich but grew up all over the place due to my father's occupation as an engineer in QR.

Now the website is almost complete I intend splashing a lot more paint around again.

Colleen, I apologise for my tardiness in replying, I've been up to my eyebrows updating a website and have not visited this site as frequently as usual.

Wongawallan, isn't that somewhere near to Canungra?
