Headland Warren Farm


Headland Warren Farm
Originally uploaded by ** Robyn **.

Like all good things, holidays must come to an end. We spent four weeks on Headland Warren Farm this time but now we are back home in Australia again and soon it will be time to go back to work.

The weather on the farm was very wet and very windy for almost all of the time that we were there. It was the complete opposite to that which we left - and came back to - in Sydney. It was such a relief to feel the wind in my hair and the rain on my face instead of just drying out and cracking up.

The only difficulty was that it is not possible to do plein aire art work with pastel in the rain. Not to be defeated, eventually I made this memory of the farm by sitting inside my favourite window and drawing what I could see outside.

I love this place! At night, when I turned off the light, I burrowed down into the absolute darkness and complete silence as though I were burrowing down under the heather and the gouse and the grass and the earth of the moor - down into the silent peace of the place. I would love to be there forever.
