Cottage At Castlemaine - Blue Earth - Unison - Sennelier Soft Pastels by Ryn Shell
Colour is Interconnected with all other Senses.
One of my greatest joys was having blind children visit my Buninyong Gallery. They came so that I could give them paintings to feel and for the chat I'd give on sharing how they might understand colour.
Lemon colour is fresh like the smell of lemons. Lime is a vibrant, bright green, smell the lime leaves and imagine the colour lime. Violet is soothing and restful—smell the lavender and imagine violet. Emotions smell and colour all interconnected. Red, the healing colour, the colour of oxygenated healthy blood, feel the warmth of a fire and think of flickering interactions of red, orange, yellow, with white-hot core, white also for purity, swell the delicate fragrance of a white rose, and grief—smell the lily. The blue-greys in the smoke, as the heat cools—move from sunshine into shadow and imagine the colours changing from the hot colours to the cooler blues, blue-green and blue-violet. Move deeper into the shade, fool yourself becoming cooler, and imagine those cool colours becoming darker.
I could get carried away talking about colour to people who also love the subject. I loved reaching to responsive students.

Gold, is a richly drawn, evocative, stand-alone novel.
ORPHANED, BETRAYED, and DETERMINED, Jane Mutta's adventures lead her to the 1850s Australian gold rush and encounters with (highwaymen) bushrangers. Amidst the dangers, there are rocky entanglements on a coach and steamship with the explorer Douglas Fife. To survive, she will need all her resources.
Something different in the way of romantic historical fiction. This is an adventure through humour and historically tragic events. It is more than historical romance — judge for yourself; Miss Mutta breaks stereotypes.
From an Australian bestselling author comes stories of determination to find one's place in a world that men are threatening to tear apart.
