Thank you Adelaide !!!!

Wow so what a wonderful weekend I had in Adelaide , was fantastic catching up with lots of my arty friends  and making a few more . Was just so awesome to be hanging out with my own kind ie the arty folk . Such an amazing bunch of talented individuals. 

Started out with Australian artist Stewart Macfarlane's wedding. Congrads Stewart and your beautiful bride and all the best for the very arty future that is yours . The wedding reception was at senator Cory Bernardi's place and it was wall to wall Stewart's paintings that were in his private collection . Really let's face it and artist dream come true reception . Ohhhhh and yes lots of dancing and a fantastic live band. 

Of course being a selfie addict I had to do the selfie at a wedding thing . A picture speaks a thousand words . 

My partner in crime for the weekend was BLAIR macnamara who's a very talented painter based on the Sunshine Coast . I have a very loved painting of his in my private collection his sense of colour is extrodinary . We are now planing lots more arty adventure in the future . 

I encountered the marvellous Australian gallereis director Stuart Purves , what a fanatastic moment for me I was more excited and nervous meeting him than I was Mötley Crüe . How life changes lol . 

I can assure you I did drink lots of the best wine I have ever drunk in Adelaide . Here is me at a vineyard at the botanical gardens , now let's me just say what a fantastic botanical gardens it was . One can judge a city by their gardens then Adelaide you got 5 stars . ⭐️

I loved the art gallery of south Australia it's had the 2016 biennial of Australian art on . Wonderful art and a fantastic collection an arty tourists must see . 

This contemporary art installation was just incredible with its vivid colours was by Melbourne based artist Kate Rohde . It's was in the entry and it's a sea of hyper colour patterning I think made with Candle wax . Stunning would be an understatement . I do love colour . 

While walking the streets of Adelaide it was amazing to see lots of sculpture on the streets . This little piggy as super cute and had lots of company but he stood out as having massive bronze personality . 

What a beautiful beach it's about 20 minutes out of Adelaide called 'semaphore' ......the colour was just beautiful and a perfection shade of blue . So thanks Adelaide I had a fantastic art weekend and will be back for more adventure in the future .
