Day8 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge with Leslie Saeta.

HEADLINE NEWS … “Australia Has Hottest Year On Record”

Are they serious?

It may well be hot around the rest of Australia … but not around here.

I will tell you what hot is … 3 days in a row of 48 degrees … now that was hot. Sadly that was the lead up to the last big bushfire challenge in Victoria. But damn it that was hot.

So while the rest of Australia has been sweltering in the hottest year on record it some how seems to have missed us.

We had no sign of spring in spring … a day or so of summer … and now signs of Autumn.

    It took me a coons age to figure out that reply also meant comment. Duh!
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your Aussie country paintings Rod. It’s making me homesick. I did some genealogy for a client around where you’ve painting which makes it even more interesting for me. I’m also doing the 30 in 30. Would love to have you visit my blog
