A reminder that November 7th is Melbourne Cup Day.
Here are some of our favourite locations for painting the jacaranda
trees. For all three locations, the trees make colourfulsubjects.

It is hard to say just when the trees will be at their best.
They are so prone to the weather conditions. Last year the weather was against us and they finished flowers early. So let’s hope this year all will be perfect for us.
Suggestions for new locations are always appreciated.
