Hi everyone hope you are all well and staying safe.  I am so glad my parents emigrated to Australia after WW2 as I would say Australia along with New Zealand have handled COVID19 the best. We do have some bad moments but on the whole the people of this wonderful country cooperate when asked. This is such a wonderful country and whenever I travel overseas I do realise this.

Well the reason I am posting this is for anyone who is on Facebook there is a group of artist and photographers that you can become a member For Free. Photographers from around the world are posting their own photos for us artists to use for free. The photos are amazing and the community is wonderful.

The site is called "Free Reference Photos for Artists" . Check it out so many wonderful photos to paint.

Thanks, great tip Teresa. I will certainly be using it.

I have never been to Australia or New Zealand but both countries look absolutely beautiful.  You are so lucky with how your country handled this crisis.  We are in a political turmoil and this crisis is adding nothing but fuel to an already raging fire.  Between the politics and virus, you almost can't listen to the news.

We have been extremely fortunate that our governments have not only acted quickly, but that the people have complied. This is allowing us to return to "normal" sooner.
HERE is the link to the Facebook group.
