Art road trip summary

Originally posted on Art class in Singapore:
  Just back from Australia an the art road trip in Queensland with Julia Namour at Connector Jewels. The picture above shows her work at the collage workshop in Goombungee.

That most words can be shortened and that humor is the best way…

However, my travelling companion has reassured me that we will not ne travelling as farRead more
