Here are the photos of the week with Paul and Bess and Tacee at our print space
we had a great week.  Paul got busy getting the artists to try his new (to us) techniques with a white ground and drypoint on aluminium ... Bess got busy taking photos (thank you Bess) and Tacee got to see another print studio and how things can happen in remote areas ... we did take them out on the boat too and for a couple of bbq's and beach time but mostly we made them work,  work,  work ....!

Gunybi made some amazing portraits
