The 2014 Art is You Australia Mixed Media Roadshow is in the books. But the memories remain...
The Roadshow was on the move for much of the month we were in Australia, starting in Sydney, heading to Melbourne, and ending up in Brisbane -- a total of well more than 1600 miles. For you Yanks, that is approximately the distance from NYC to Denver, Colorado.
Our mode of transportation was our trusty van -- which we lovingly nicknamed Matil-Duh.
Despite the fact that 6 or 7 of us were always "crammed" in the van, somehow our rides ended up being the highlight of the trip.
Our amazing leader - Sallianne McClelland - drove every kilometer of the trip.
Not only did we have to fit inside the tin can, so did our luggage...
...which we became experts at fitting in like a puzzle.
All our art supplies had to fit too.
As did Rufus, our Kangaroo.
Lovely Linda and I in the back of the van.
Andrea was all smiles...
...as was Michael.
I think Kecia and I were afraid all that luggage was going to topple onto us.
Looks like our van was memorialized on a wall in Byron Bay.
The company within the van was wonderful and so were the views of the countryside along the way.
Thanks for the ride Matil-Duh!
