Look What Arrived Today
I originally had a dressmaking model I had bought not long after I was married - but sold it after I outgrew it and I've kicked myself ever since! I've now got this one set to my daughter Laura's measurements - but will need to alter the bust as she's very busty and the model is not so well endowed!
I did buy myself several years ago (Ebay again!) a used, 'full figured' model, which I'm pleased to say will need a little adjusting now- downwards , but I'm a very long way from fitting (if ever) into this size. I might consider buying myself the next size up - once I've saved some more money though.
My next dilemma now is where on earth am I going to store this in my house? My other model has been residing at in a shed for some time - the joys of living in a very small house!
Some Good News!
Neale received a telephone call today to say that the 3 photographs he had entered into a competition - Linden Postcard Show, run by the Linden Galleries St Kilda in Melbourne had been sold - so he didn't need to have them posted back! He's thrilled as it's 5 works of his art that has been sold in the past 2 weeks.
Neale is also going to be very busy now on. He currently works 4 days a week at Monash Uni here in town, as well as studying part-time for his Masters in Fine Arts. Now he is now going to be teaching photography every Thursday at the Tafe College in Newborough - beginning tomorrow, to Cert 4 and Diploma students.
