garma is over .. we are back from the bush and almost recovered - kade has gone to darwin for the darwin art fair, the telstra art awards and the waiaa awards  ... busy busy busy  .. i am resting, returning the house to normal after a week or so of volunteers and visitors camping out in the bedrooms,  lounge and hallway. It was fun... katie came up from melbourne with her friend jess who both were so excellent we are now plotting ways to make them ours  - aimee brought a crew of volunteers as well who added pro-surfer glamour and well-connectedness to the campsite (think famous actress sister) and there was the lovely denise and neil, the delicious polish couple and jeremy adding a dash of good ol' kiwiness in the mix as well...  they all were working hard at Buku and in the bush to make the whole thing a success  .. thank you

opening night

I took possibly the worst photos ever of the events but here are a few to get the idea -  the setting was a stringy bark tree about half an hour from yirrkala down the red dirt road - everyone camped and enjoyed the three solid meals a day from the caterers who did a fine job, there were forums, famous people and film crews galore - you can read a bit about it here,  here or here if you like,   I got to bask in the glory of my exhibition (haha - not really) I did however get to sell art and break art (it rained) and chase iggy around in the sand and bunggul ground and enjoy myself .. AND the president himself smiled and said hello to me
