Sheep in the Fingal Valley Tasmania

by Carol Grey
(Launceston,Tasmania.au)

I had dabbled in decorative art but desired to actually paint a rural scene as I am from farming.

I travelled to Ethan near Melbourne to Linda Macauley’s studio, I soon realised I knew nothing about colour mixing and transferring by grid, I found it hard but Linda’s gentleness and passion over road my fear of the unknown.

I was a sheep farmer‘S wife and wool classer. I was thrown into running the farm after my husbands sudden suicide on 26 Dec 1999. I am finding peace in painting though I am very much a learner.

I love your relaxed style and being allowed to make mistakes and correct them.

Thank you Mark, you are a brave positive guy.
