Porcelain, Glass and an Old Barn- Gympie Road Trip



Last Saturday I drove the back way to Gympie for the opening of "Swamp Cartography".
I love driving through the golden afternoon light, the paddocks flying by, the girls in the back seat chattering about their day and taking mini naps.
We stopped to take photos of this beautiful barn. The crossroads were deserted, all we could hear was the wind in the grass and we were surrounded by the sweet, spicy smell of the afternoon sun on the fields.

For the exhibition we borrowed an old cedar table from a friend and set up a "collectors table" with all our tools and impressions laid out.



The "Swamp Bubbles" looked great in a gallery under real lights

What a great shed!! and so close to the road, they are usually way over the back or have trees between you and the road.
Congratulations on your exhibition setup - much more interesting than white plinths! Those bubbles are beautiful.

Looks like a great display Shannon! Awesome barn and I am struck by the green grass, aching for it~ (living in upstate NY)
