Tidbinbilla and rocks and clouds.

I drove to Tidbinbilla this morning and did this quick sketch. Quick because it turned out to be a longer drive than I expected and also because I got distracted having a look at the deep space station, so I only had forty minutes of painting time before taking a long drive back home to meet my daughter for lunch.
It was a lovely drive though, so much beautiful country. We are very lucky here in Canberra, to be able to drive for 15 minutes in any direction and find ourselves in the bush!

The sky was very blue with lots of big clouds pushing their way around and casting odd shadows over the hillside. I love the country out Tidbinbilla way because of the rocks. I love rocks.

I had two lovely treats today. Lunch with Em and then afternoon tea with gorgeous work buddies at Adore Tea in Gold Creek. The best tea and treats there, and it is hard not to buy something charming from the shop.
