I went north to Rainbow Beach for a full moon horse ride, alas that was cancelled, but I did have plenty of time to paint at Carlo Sand Blow. The sandblow is an incredible accumulation of windblown sand that resembles a moonscape or a scene out of a sci-fi movie. Its view over the ocean, double island point, and the rainbow sands makes it heaven for a painter. There is magic in a place like this, it felt like an honour to be able to try to capture some of it.

This is painted on a brand new rat trap. I forgot to get new panels, and the local stores didn't have any canvas or wood, so I found myself having to improvise. I disassembled the "trap" part of the trap so there is no danger, and added some GAC100 to seal the surface. They were actually fantastic to paint on, and very portable.

Painting en plein air is one of my favourite things to do when the weather is beautiful! It's wonderful to get out there in winter, when we have dry, cooler weather, and try capture some of the beauty of the land.
