            For the month of January 2016, I was at the Nerang Library,  painting away to produce an oil painting.
                Many people came up to say ‘hi’, introduce themselves and have a chat about their art practice.
                It was a really great experience -I met some fantastic people already interested in art  and some who hadn’t been exposed to an artist at work before…. the Library staff were  absolutely amazing and supportive.  All in all it was a great month!
