Tulips & Canapes
A busy week (as usual!). My 2nd last week before I have to deliver works for my coming exhibition, so lots of painting happening. I finished 3 works, one of which in oils which I do not normally do - but I wanted to butter on some luscious oil paints on canvas and with impasto gel medium I was able to indulge my whim. Here is the finished painting "Floriade" which will be in the coming show.
Oils on canvas, 40"x54"

|Works as yet unfinished!|
Later in the week, played around with a new haircolour (dark red & platinum) - hairdressers can be artists too right? And then clay totem heads and windchimes for the disabled classes at the Hawkesbury Community Arts Workshop.
Saturday I was at not one but two exhibition openings. The Ferry Artists Gallery at Wisemans Ferry, opened "Wall to Wall", a great mix of works by the members, all under $360.

Then off to Breathing Colours Gallery, Balmain for "'scapes". A solo exhibition by Julie Simmons. A great show, which I hope will be well attended over the next week.
My show will be the next one at Breathing Colours. So I will be busy varnishing and readying the works for delivery this Sunday. The work will be on display from Tuesday 19 August.
