Moving Mountains

Claire's solo exhibition "Moving Mountains" was officially opened at the Stanley Street  Gallery in Darlinghurst this weekend. Needless to say her mountains (paintings, prints and drawings) looked beautiful in this jewel of a gallery in inner city Sydney.

The gallery owners Liza and Merilyn gave Claire wonderful feedback (all deserved) on the quality of her work in this exhibition. She is their "star"! Six works were sold at the opening - always a good sign. We enjoyed the very relaxed vibe of the opening afternoon, especially being able to catch up with people we knew and interesting people we were introduced to - and feeling so proud of Claire's enormous achievements as an artist.

We had great fun with Claire over three days in Sydney, including meeting some of her lovely friends at the Lord Roberts in Darlinghurst, and sharing a wonderful dinner on Friday night at the buzzy Riley Street Garage,
where we met the lovely Rachel (a dear friend of Claire's and a surprise visitor to Sydney this weekend).......
and LOVED our choice of degustation menu. The fresh smokey soy truffle oysters were a perfect starter. 
And the Riley Street dessert platter was a perfect way to end (with a lovely bottle of Inkwell Mclaren Vale shiraz.
We love our Barzura at Coogee - the most perfect beachside breakfast spot......
We finished a perfect weekend with a slow morning at Coogee Beach - at its most perfect too (sigh) .....

And back in Canberra, Rob and I went for a late afternoon stroll to the lake - just for a stretch out after the long drive. It was pretty perfect in Canberra today too, obviously...... love where we live at Campbell!
