Studio cam and Studio Stand (D13)

All is excitement and flurry as I prepare for my little Stand D13 at the Sydney Art Show coming up in three weeks!
It’s not a big space (1m x 3m) and I’m trying to figure out how to turn it into a mini studio so I can be painting over the three days I’m there. It will be great to chat to lots of people and meet other artists, and hopefully find new homes for some paintings.
I’ve also rashly offered to do a presentation on Sun Oct 16 from 1 - 1:30 pm called, “Green sky and purple trees - unleash your inner mad scientist at preschool”

I’ve been watching on a webcam a pair of sea eagles raise a chick which gave me the bright idea of trying a studio cam! I launched it yesterday and have made the following discoveries:
- if you use the camera on your laptop, a lot of the time is spent seeing you looking into the lens, perplexed, as you try to work out if the thing is on or not
- if you use the camera on your laptop, the laptop is in the wrong position for good wireless reception so a lot of the time is spent seeing you frozen, looking into the lens, perplexed, as you were trying to work out if the thing was on or not
- when you first try this with the camera on a table behind you, you block the canvas when you’re painting so nobody can see what you’re doing.
- if the sound is off, somehow it makes it all less interesting.
- you look older than you think.
- you probably are older than you think.
