Painting trip to Maldon - Day 1

It was a spontaneous decision last night, with temperature 30°C predicted, I thought I would go somewhere and stay overnight. Fortunately I was able to book Airbnb in Maldon, 1 3/4 hours drive northwest of Melbourne. 

I arrived around 11am. There was a monthly Sunday Market. A lovely country market with fresh produce and music. 

After lunch in town, I drove to Maldon General Cemetery, 5 min drive. 
I’ve been here about two years ago with Greg and others. I think it was in August, freezing cold. A very different feeling today. 

It was very peaceful. The big trees catching a lovely autumn sunlight. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in. 

Then I drove to Mt Tarrengower Lookout to catch a magnificent sunset.

The dinner is pizza takeaway from Spotted Cow in town. Very yummy. 
Playing CDs in a room. At the moment, ‘Dark side of the moon’, not too bad. Lovely place to stay. 
It’s a shame I will have to leave tomorrow.
