in June I’ll be one of the residents glorious Bundanon. The pic to the left is of the main building in full bloom. Arthur Boyd’s family made a gift of this beautiful property to Australian artists of all flavours. It’s set in blueish hills, near a river, and wombats wander about the place at dusk. Last time I was in residence, I stayed in the Musician’s Cottage (that’s it below) where I tinkled on the piano that had just the week before been played by the sublimely wonderful Katie Noonan. Such a shame that she wasn’t there to hear how a George song should really be played (chord, pause, chord – no, sorry, wait, wrong chord – …). This time I’m in the Sherman studio, with the ghosts of visual artists haunting my dreams. It’s a special place, rich with Australian art history, and an example of extraordinary generosity. I’m grateful for it.
