|"Sanctuary", my entry at the Art Prize|
It was a holiday week this week! I had the opportunity to meet my husband in Brisbane and travel to Stanthorpe for the Opening of the Stanthorpe Arts Festival - the forerunner of the Apple & Grape Harvest Festival.
What a great opening, lots of beautiful entries from many different disciplines - painting, printmaking, crochet, photography, textiles, metal fabrication. Congratulations to all involved.

I enjoyed my visit to Stanthorpe very much. We stayed at Girraween Environmental Lodge at Ballandean - lots of lovely bush walks full of my favourite painting subjects - trees, rocks, birds. Visited artisans of other forms - cheese, wine, soap, wood.
I may be taking part in painting & drawing workshops held at the Lodge later in the year, feel free to let me know if you are interested and I will put you on my mailing list.
Before I headed inland, I visited 19 Karen Contemporary Art Space at the Gold Coast to swap some paintings over. I had a preview of their current set of solo shows that opened on Saturday - Auguste Blackman, Hugh Ford, Liesa Russell & Ray Paul. View images here
I am looking forward the their next show - Tribute to MJ's Best Film Clips, opening 2nd May at Sofitel Broadbeach. Here is a preview of one of my paintings that I finished this week for the show

Another show I have work this coming week is at the Royal Art Society Autumn Exhibition, 7 March - 27 April
