Did any readers notice I took an extended holiday away from Designing Home blog?
I also bravely put my design business in mothballs except for a few clients. That's right a four month holiday to complete artwork for two shows. Brave or foolhardy? Only time will tell.
This is where I spent my summer.
The little speck of a house in the background is my favourite place in the world. The views are spectacular and the ocean in all its moods speaks daily. Duntara is as close to heaven as you will get.
I had a marvellous summer full of creativity, conversation, relaxation, long walks roaming the beaches, whale watching and iceberg viewing directly in front of the house and on and on it goes. I'm coming to fall with a renewed focus on my art practice. It feels very satisfying.
My new work continues to focus on what gets left behind, but I have moved from two dimensional works to three dimensional using found wood and objects to explore Compositions in Time.

One or the other of my two careers usually gets the short end of the stick; I may have to do something about that. Decision time is creeping up on me.
Yes, I know I never did write a post about my new kitchen. That is coming this fall, but first I have two more weeks in beautiful Duntara.
