I was up in Brisbane last week for a training course. A book shop near the hotel that I was staying in had a closing down sale on. As well as books, it also had art materials for sale. I bought some watercolour pads, brushes and tubes of paint. Good value!
Anyway, one of the evenings, I got a bit bored and decided to paint something (in acrylic paint). I decided on a 'self-portrait' (actually in reverse coz it was the image in the mirror!). Hence the title, 'reflecting on the dark side'.
Coming back to Tasmania was interesting. I thought that I might get pinged for having sharp objects in my carry-on bag (the brushes), but no. Instead I got pinged on the paint tubes. Liquids aren't they! However, after the security staff had a good look, they decided that they were ok as they were water colour and acrylic. Apparently, I would have had to give them up if they had been oil paint!
