Ahh - tea - I truly can't live without it. for the sake of my health I reduced my intake recently from - weeell - more than five, or six or maybe seven cups a day to no more than three. There were even a couple of days when I only had a single cup of tea...whew!

So I was thrilled to see this post on Momo's blog. Check it out

Too busy to blog

Red duette by Marie Hagerty, shown recently at Tim Olsen Gallery

The good thing is, it means I have a life. The bad thing is, there are heaps of things I want to write about and the longer I leave it the more I forget...

I spent last weekend in Sydney, enjoying the quiet streets and staying well away from anything connected to APEC. We had a delightful weekend catching up with mates and getting to see a bit of art.

We went to this exhibition which was a stunner. Marie Hagerty is a Canberra based painter and creates these very controlled and powerful abstract paintings with a limited palette of red, white, black, grey and a touch of orange.

The work pictured above Red duette is one of the images in the exhibition - the digital image goes nowhere near doing the real thing justice, but it gives you a bit of an idea. The trip to Sydney was worth it just to see these works.

Ampersandduck posted this on her blog and I was so thrilled I had to post it here too. I went to artschool with this artist and love her strong graphic images.
