My friends Celeste and Steve held an informal gathering to mark the opening of their long awaited studio, at their house, on top of Mt Murray.
Celeste designed the studio herself, and she had the studio built with the assistance of various tradesmen friends, especially the hard-working Ross Brumfield, who did the earthworks - an enormous task.Anyway, on the eve of the first exhibition at the studio (this weekend) they invited some friends around to help celebrate the arrival of the studio. Celeste and Steve are participating in the "Days of Art, Wine and Roses" Studio Art Trail, which has been organised by Robertson's own Jenny Kena.
Lets hope the golden wash in the light, just before sunset, is a good omen for Celeste and Steve and their other artist friends, whose work is exhibited at Cloud Farm Studio.
There was a glorious sunset that evening - here seen with one of the sculptures by Phillip Walker in the foreground. Sorry it is so hard to see - but I really wanted to catch the sunset, and that made everything else dark.
