It has been a very wet week. My empty wetlands have filled up and my little dog is a nervous wreck from all the thunderstorms. I quite like storms - they are a respite from the heat. But they aren't much fun when you have to drive in them, and when you want to hold an exhibition, it will definitely put a dampener on the festivities.

I delivered some paintings to the framers to be made ready for delivery to 19 Karen Contemporary Artspace on theGold Coast. Hopefully by next week! I also managed to finish 3 more works.

There is a lovely 150 year old church (St.James) in Pitt Town, not far from where I live. When I heard they were putting on an art show, I wanted to be part of it as a ''local artist" The show was just on for the Saturday and the church looked marvelous. I had both prints and paintings exhibited, it was beautiful to see my colours mirrored in the stained glass windows of the church.

Purple Noon Gallery also opened a show on the Saturday. All works under $600 and I made quite a wishlist in my head of cushions, jewelery and exquisite little etchings. But boy did it RAIN. Never a good thing to happen during an opening, tends to keep people away, but it was a very nice evening nonetheless. Go check out the show!
