Blown in the Wind.

I was going to make my tent into a painting room, but with the high winds we had for a couple of days, it well and truly got blown around. I thought it was going to take off at one stage but was even too windy to take it down. It just got flapped in my face every time I tried.  Its broken, when I went out to check it one of the poles that go through well and truly snapped. I thought I might try taping it together, haha, but with the pressure the poles are under naturally just went straight through the tape. Don’t want to do any painting in the van as its not mine, and don’t believe there wouldn’t be some paint end up somewhere no matter how careful I was. So will have to wait til I can get some more poles for it. We had an absolutely beautiful day weather wise today, but storms and rain forecast now for next few days, so no painting outside either.  I have a graphite I’m doing so will be a good time to get stuck into it and finish it.

I had a photo of the beautiful bottle brush thats starting to flower, but the add image icon has disappeared from my page here so will put it on another post. Its a really lovely native, painted millions of times but each painting of it is different.

  1. Sorry, Paintedbrush. Hope the poles aren’t difficult to come by. Is it warm enough during the day to even paint in a tent?

    • Have a really thick sleeping bag the lady next to me gave me and would wrap that around, but yep the poles aren’t easy to get. A couple of people here said they may have spare pole that fits so am keeping my fingers crossed.

  2. Will it be very difficult for you to paint with a sleeping bag wrapped around you?
    Did you ever get the poles?

    • Rang the man at the camping store today and he said they’d swap it for new one if I return it as its only 6 weeks old. Will try anything re the sleeping bag, haha.

  5. Hi Paintedbrush. I believe I read about you having a son on a previous post. Another Australian blogger said it is Mother’s Day there, also. Wanted to just say, Happy Mother’s Day to you!
