This was the artwork in progress.
Working with ink feels like going back to my childhood, so why not paint a 1950s era playground, still standing much as it did in my childhood days here in central Victoria, Australia?
At this stage of the artwork, I had I hoped to have this work ready for video release within days, complete with Autumn colouring, as a ink line and watercolour wash painting.
At this stage of the painting, Reg developed a sore throat.
Other issues that attempted to derail this weeks art demonstration tutorial release was my husband Reg and myself once again, (I think this is three times now) being locked in our rooms, as social distancing, due to a perceived Covid-19 risk.
The computer with my almost completed video tutorial of this work was locked up in quarantine with my husband.
Unable to complete the video for the panned Friday evening release, I set about to create, another improvement for those who hit the notification button to view my YouTube video releases. now you only need to subscribe to the channel with the content you mainly wish to see. Thank you YouTuber friends for all your support.
As I completed the painting, but not the tutorial video, precautions were put in place.
Daniel Andrews is trending on Twitter. So he should be!
@DanielAndrewsMP is a true leader! He has been responsible for keeping our community safer, compared to many other places, from this currunt pandemic. I could not be ins a safer place, thanks to the responsibility of most Australians and due to great leadership by a premier we affectionatelly call Dan.
Daniel Andrews is the leader Victoria and Australia needs during this crisis!
Precautons, put in place fast, followed by quick testing for the Covid-19 virus, as happened to Reg when he developed a sore throat, are saving lives, by stoping as much spread of the virus as is possible, here in Autralia.

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.
