We have now well and truly re-located to Hamilton in the Western District of Victoria.
It’s been quite a journey and many removal trucks to relocate 256 human life years of goods and chattels collected and art works made on the family property hillside at Mount Pleasant and Fordhams Road Eltham. Two houses and several workshops and sheds as well as the garden and gallery. What was not given away or sent to recycling depots is now in Hamilton. Pieces of our Eltham garden are now growing in a new soil, just like us. There were not too many casualties along the way.
We also want to thank the many friends and students who stopped by to give us a hand with this daunting task.
So what’s the future?
We’ve begun discussions and drawing plans for the next painting studio and planning how we will promote our beautiful new grounds in Hamilton. There are thinking plans ahead for painting workshops around the beautiful new garden, lake and orchard. The property is everything we had in Eltham; but on a larger scale and the land is FLAT! And that’s is beauty – no more garden or working like a mountain goat on the steep hillside of Eltham South.
