My Month: May

May is the month of my birth so I am taking ownership of it in this blog. Before I start on May I must finish telling you about my April Adventures. After almost 3 years we got to have real hugs with our daughter and grandchildren ❤️❤️❤️ They came from Queensland Australia for a week over Easter. They love being with their older cousins and of course the first port of call was my studio.

I now have painted rocks from my grandchildren!
The Easter bunny put eggs beside the painted rocks.

I have joined the Tauranga Urban Sketchers. They meet once a month and paint in and around Tauranga. I am enjoying meeting and painting/drawing with a new group of artists. At the end of April we met at an historic homestead in central Tauranga.

A beautiful day sitting in a lovely garden.

In the beginning of May Sharron, from Exclusive tours, brought a group of 7 women on a visit to my studio. They said they enjoyed the opportunity to learn about watercolour from the demonstration that I did and several went away with cards they had purchased. Beautiful day and lovely ladies.

Day 1 of my Beginners watercolour class was held yesterday. They worked hard but we had some laughs as well. I look forward to next weeks class with them.

What’s coming up for the rest of May?

A long weekend in beautiful Nelson. ( I’ll take my sketch book).

A luncheon for our art group Unlimited Palette as we farewell one of our members who is moving up north. 🥲

A workshop on 21/ 22nd in Rotorua for the Geyserland Art Group.

A watercolour workshop for Waihi U3A on 30th May.

Whew. I might need another holiday in June.

Thank you all for reading my blog and for those of you who gave me feedback during my daily April Adventures. I was thrilled that so many of you said that you looked forward to them each day. It made it worth it.

Till next month. Ka kite.

  1. Pam it is inspiring to read of your achievements both personal and as a group leader ( facilitator ) Plus exciting to read of your up and coming events. I doubt you will be tired at the end of the month more like invigorated. Go you. Cheers Lyall
