Tomorrow Thomas and I begin two days of hitch hiking to get down to Caleb's place in Hawkes Bay. From there we will drive out to the Kawekas and tramp around there for the next two weeks.
I'm looking forward to more walking with no sore knee this time. And I am excited to begin work again. I've bought some pastels and am planning to do a few pastel drawings as well as charcoal and graphite and some more watercolours. I don't know if I'll ever settle down into one medium. I love working in them all, though sometimes I'm more inspired with one in particular. At the moment I am quite inspired to do pastel paintings and also some more charcoal drawings.
The other week I spent the afternoon outside my studio drawing the old boat shed and the red wheel barrow.
When I went for a walk on Wednesday I climbed up the Dukes Nose and enjoyed the view of the harbour heads from up there. I painted a small sketch.
And we sold Lady! She is recovering from her 17 stitch cut in her leg and doing very well. I hope she will enjoy her new home. They are very eager to have her and will be well loved. I will miss her a bit though.
But I will have more time for riding my own Tigger! The other day I rode him up on the hills. I have such a beautiful place to ride!
Good bye! I will be back in a few weeks. :)
