I am at the Dalwallinu Show in Western Australia today, It’s a small friendly country show, in the Northern Wheat belt of Western Australia.
This area is also famous for its wildflowers, and the show was a mixture of field days with huge farming machinery on the oval for viewing and orders and a craft market with many local craftspeople both exhibiting and selling their wares. It was a lovely day despite rain showers.
Tonight there is a concert being held on the grounds for the locals.
The photo is of wildflowers from the Dalwallinu area. Flowers supplied by the Western Roads Board who were at the show to educate about safe driving on Western Australian roads.
Tomorrow we head toward Toodyay in the Avon Valley. That town is special to me, I have good friends there, and it is a beautiful town, one I would like to spend time painting one day, maybe next year.
Next year I plan to 'freelance,' travel without any show or exhibition bookings, just trust what blows in on the winds of luck.
Last year I stayed most of September in the beautiful Avon Valley as the Artist in Residence at the beautiful Beverley Railway Station Gallery.
