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 photo above 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.
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.
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.

Ruth Randall's novel "A Judgement in Stone," opens with this line.
"Eunice Parchman killed the Coverdale family because she could not read or write."
In open mystery novel, the reader knows who the murderer is, from the beginning; the mystery is why, and how, they did it, and if they will be caught.
In The Stolen Years series of novels, the reader has a view of who commits many of the crimes. There is plenty of suspense while no one else suspects who the murderer is.
The Stolen Years Series
From an Australian bestselling author comes mystery thriller of determination to find one's place in a world that men are threatening to tear apart.
Psychological thrillers often deal with characters who have post traumatic stress disorder often caused by a mysterious suspenseful situation as happens within The Stolen Years Series of novels by Ryn Shell.
Noir or hardboiled, often detective fiction is a genre of crime novels featuring detectives or private detectives who see the dark, edgy side of life. As in The Stoles Years, Ryn Shell is writing of a dark side of Australian history these novels fit the rural noir sub-genre. These novels by Ryn Shell are lightened, to make the reading enjoyable, by the family saga story of resilience and love.
Historical mystery genres are often crossed with other genres. Ryn Shell has always combined two or more genres or sub-genre in the telling of the complex stories in her books. Her characters come to life in her head while she writes them and demand more.
