Hospital hill run on a stunning day. Felt like I was on the edge of what my legs could manage with only a few tinges from abused muscles as I chased runners alongside the lagoon.

Movies in the studio planned for the winter months, focused on various artists and art forms. The big screen TV is installed and is being used to show the demonstration videos of my painting style, as well as paintings that are stored and not on display in the gallery.

Steep learning curve to put the various bits together. Mirroring. Comparable formats. What can be controlled through Bluetooth, HDMI, USB, DLNA, UPnP, Optical or cleft stick. Proliferation of remotes driving me nuts.

I do need to pay a bunch more attention to taking better quality photos of my paintings. Having them exploded on the screen highlights how poor many of the photos I have are. Not a camera deficiency, only in the operator.

Lazy Sunday with pizza and a bottle of wine. A hint of jazz coming across the water. 

A few new small painted canvases finished to replace those that have sold. The changing light as the seasons change bringing in different colours into the paintings.

Didn’t quite manage the DIY doors for the gas bottle cupboard without blood.
