Artists week ending 3rd May 2014

We are into May? Goodness me, luckily I have started finishing off my works due for exhibition early next month. The first 4 were delivered to one of my framers on Monday (Purple Noon Gallery & Framing). (OPENING 7TH JUNE BY THE WAY).

Movies on Monday "The Winter Soldier" Go Captain!

On Tuesday a trip to Winmalee to deliver works to their art show that was held on the weekend. I was unable to attend but I heard I received a prize for one of my prints and sold a piece which is always a boost.

Also delivered work to the Hawkesbury Show which is on next week.

I also have been doing a heap of paperwork - a necessary chore if you want to be organised about finances, works in shows & galleries, and promotion. 

Thursday was a hectic day teaching a couple of classes. We had a lot of fun - the first group worked with stencils and the 2nd group painted a table! (For an ongoing mosaic project) Whats not fun about painting furniture :-)- and some of the class really enjoyed participating which was gratifying to see. Luckily I left no paint on the floor etc and only a couple of students went home with paint on their clothes. Miracles happen!

Broadbeach on a beautiful Autumn Day
Friday was "get on plane day" - who doesnt like those days? A trip to the Gold Coast for a couple of nights.
"Tribute to Michael Jackson's best film clips" opened Friday night at the Sofitel Broadbeach, organised by 19 Karen Contemporary Artspace. What a great night with lots of people to talk to. I hope to get some more photos later.

Lovely news to keep me going this week - My entry into this years Hunters Hill Art Exhibition was accepted, and I sold a painting at the QLD gallery (19 Karen).

Have a lovely week, I myself need to get into serious painting mode for the coming exhibition/s.
